My HVFM20AAB wine cooler quit.

My 3 yr old HVFM20AAB wine cooler quit. The compressor DOES heat up however. Is it the relay, the compressor, and what is the warranty on the LG compressor? One tech man I spoke to said it may be 5 years.

Check your thermostat setting, if the setting is ok then something wrong with your thermostat control.

SOURCE: Haier Wine Cooler won't cycle on and off automatically

Hey all,

For those of you who have problems with one or both or your zones not cooling on the HVTB18DABB or similar wine cooler/cellar, the problem lies the Peltier-style thermoelectric cooling module. The original part is "TEC1-12706" and information on it can be found on google. Finding this or a similar part on ebay can be done by searching for "thermoelectric cooler". If the exact TEC1-12706 part cannot be found, then any similar part that's 40mm x 40mm in size, and 51 to 69 watts should do fine. For $25 I was able to get 3 modules...one to replace the bad zone I had, and then I'll have 2 spares in case the other zone, or this new one, ever go bad again.

To replace the part you must remove the back panel from your Wine cellar. You will see 2 big fans attached to two large heat sinks. (If a heat sink on the back does not feel warm to the touch, the the other side is obviously not cooling, which means that zone is broken.) Remove the screws from the fan and the heat sink of the zone that is not cooling, and while holding the heat sink, pull the whole cooling assembly for that zone out. Dont be alarmed if you feel some insulating foam separating as you pull it out, its a tight fit so that is to be expected. Once you have the cooling assembly out of the fridge, take it apart and you will see the square ceramic cooling module inside. (REMEMBER which way the module was oriented before you remove it, so you know how to put the new one in.) Clip the red and black wires near the module and remove it from the assembly. DON'T wipe away any of the white thermal grease left behind on the heat sinks. If you have any extra thermal grease handy (available at Best Buy, or online at sites like newegg), apply an extra pea-sized dab to both sides of the new module. Put the assembly back together and splice the wires from the new module to the loose wires left behind going into the back of the Wine cellar. Mount everything back in place as before, close up the back, and youre done!

This is really a lot easier to do than it sounds, especially if you're comfortable doing this sort of thing...a few pictures would explain much better if anyone wants to illustrate.

These are actually great units, so I hope this helps somebody fix theirs!

SOURCE: wine cooler makes noise and runs hot

The price looks fine for my area its about a 3 hour job done properly. you should consider a new wine cooler and cut your losses because if their only replacing the compressor they should be replacing the cap tube and liquid drier if the cap tube is not replaced could be a waste of money

SOURCE: Koolspace NUVO wine cooler recharge

do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

Why does My marvel 61WCM wine fridge turn on but right away off again?


First make sure it is not plugged into an extension cord. Low voltage could cause this type of problem. If you have it plugged directly in ,It is probably the compressor or overload relay on the compressor. You can bypass the thermostat to see if it is the problem, by first unplugging the device, then removing the wires from the thermostat, and jumping them together. Then plug it in If it still acts the same way the problem is in the compressor or overload relay mounted on the compressor. Sometimes the relay can be purchased and replaced or a hard start might work solve your problem.

Wine cooler power on but not cooling ...have tried to set controls but compressor is not kicking on ....unit is not that old


Try changing the relay inside plastic box on compressor
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector for corrosion. If it is corroded it should be cleaned or replaced
Reattach the wire to the new compressor relay and press the relay back onto the compressor terminals. Replace the terminal cover box and plug in the refrigerator.

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 www.lifeluxurymarvel.com
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

Want to purchase relay. Can't find part locally.


The best thing to do is go to your local appliance parts warehouse and match up the relay with what they have in stock.

Be sure to briung all relevant info you might have on the unit.

That way you can ask for the RF-5600-01 to compare it before purchasing. Thats exatly what a service tech would do if you called one, only they will charge you 50 to 100 bucks to do it.

No longer cools.


This refrigeration system may be under extended warranty.
Otherwise check the compressor start relay for loose or burned contacts.
