    Same issue, temperature set at moderate and all of a sudden everything has frozen. Even putting temperature at the warmest temperature still causes everything in refrigerator to freeze.

    I have the same problem-bottles keep freezing and breaking. Is it completely ridiculous to think that we could replace the thermistor, potentiometer and control box ourselves? Is there a diagram for this wine cooler to show us?

    I have a Marvel wine cooler that is now freezing everything. I purchased a new t'stat control (PN 42244530) only to find that the connectors changed when the part was re-engineered/upgraded. Can you tell me the assembly part number for the 3 pieces temperature control or the part numbers for the corresponding potentiometer and thermistor that connect to the t'stat control?

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool

If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver

I have a client with a ten year old Marvel 24'' built in wine cooler, and the weater stripping is falling off. I can not find a model # anywhere. Derek

Dear Dereck,

Does your client have any idea how old the unit is? What do you mean by "weather stripping"? If you need a door gasket, all their 24" wide units (except ADA height) use the same gaskets. Part number 42241280 for the white and 42243906 for the black. You can order direct from the factory at 800-223-3900 (they are in EST in Michigan) should you need something else, describe the unit to their customer service personnel and they should be able to assist you. (Ask for Tim or Ron) - Subdriver

My marvel wine cooler is 9 years old and no longer runs. The light works but nothing else runs. Might this be the thermostat? iif so where would I ge a replacement and would would it cost?

This could very well be the thermostat (pre-2000) or part of the temperature control system (2000 to 2009) which has three parts: The thermsitor (usually the culprit), the potentiometer (connected the the control dial) or the control board. Call the factory at 800-223-3900 with your serial number (to identify which control it uses) and you can buy the part direct from them. The control kit is about $150.00, the old style thermostat about $100,00 and if it is just the thermsistor, it's about $50.00 (I haven't checked their prices in awhile)

Humidity and temp control not working.unit is 12yr old

The 61WC does not have humidity control in it unless it was added after the factory. The old style mechanical control is still available from the factory at 800-223-3900 PN 42241702 (ask them to double check my memory on the part number)

Marvel 61wc temperature will not go below 67 degrees F. Ice has accumulated on the back wall on the coil.

The 61 WC is a cycle defrost/plate sensing control. If your unit was manufactured before 2001 it will use an electric/mechancal thermostat that has a capillary tube that senses temperature. If it was made after, it will use a solid state control box that has a "thermsitor" sensing temperature and a potentiometer for user input (OFF through 7). If the unit runs constantly, and does not reach desired is low on freon due to a leak. This will be evidenced by ice build-up where the freon first enters the evaporator plate and no where else. You will have to have a technician fix the leak and recharge the unit. Don't wait to long to ge this corrected. If the unit runs too long with a low charge it could draw air and contaminants into the system and the compressor will get damaged.

I hope this helps.

Marvel 61WC Wine Frige Won't Turn Off

Check he frost pattern on your evaporator. That is a plate sensing control and if the system developes a freon leak you will have frost on the beginning of the cycle (middle bottom and travels to the left, then across the top middle, then to the right and back to the lower middle) but not at the end where the thermsitor senses temperature. This will cause the unit to run almost continously no-matter what setting you have it on. If this is so, you need to have the leaking component repaired/replaced. You will not want to let your unit run like this since the longer you do..the more components will get damaged. If you are still with-in your warranty period, contact your dealer to initiate service. If not, contact any appliance repair shop you trust in your area. I hope this helps.

Wine cooler doesn't cool properly

Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
