Re: Brand new out of box and will not cool - after 12...
First question is, are there any fans that are built in that are not running? next is there may be no freon in the unit. Ive seen new stuff from the factory have no freon inside. feel the suction line (the bigger one) from the compressor. It should be cool. The discharge line (smal one) should be hot.

it might , it has a compressor and that would make more noise under a strain . refrigeration units strain when the box is warm. let it run and bring down the temp of the box and then see how much noise it is making . 12 hours should do it.
If the overload was open circuit you would not have a hot compressor. The overload activates because the compressor won't start. If there is a capacitor starter, change it. If not let it cool for at least a day then try again. If still no go, replace compressor.
HI sally.well wine coolers r not rocket science.your local engineer should be able to at least diagnose the problem...lets c if u can do it ok?(still getting power )u mean light comes on or u mean it runs but dont get cold?well haier is not the best but if it's done 7 years is not bad:).ok...1-check if it makes any noise or is completely quiet.if no sound feel the motor (compressor).hot or cold.if cold it could be the thermostat or motor.if hot running or not it could be refrigerant or motor.needs visual.hope this helps.ALI
Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.
Lastly, check the compressor.
These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.
Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.
Possible bad thermostat. Bypass the thermostat wire to run the compressor. If the compressor start, replace the thermostat.
On the other hand if the compressor is running, and there is no cooling; there is a leak and all the refrigerant probably escaped. If it is the case, you need to call serviceman and have him evaluate the wine cooler for possible repairs.
P.S. The serviceman may charge a fee for evaluating or estimating the cost of repairs.
its your ptc relay.its a very simple fix.to the left of the compressor is a plastic cover with 1 screw.take it off.youll see a small box on top with 1 wire going to it.wiggle it off.pulls straight out left of compressor.go to repairclinic.com..type in part #1206838.its about a $27.00 fix. mines been running fine since.hope this helps
