Question about Oster 12-Bottle Wine Cellar - Black
Dose not run or cool. Red light appearsat back. Used only 40 to 60 days.
First of all check the fuse on the main board
The fuse is on the circuit board covered with a black tube. It looks like a upside down "U" on the upper left hand side of the board, next to a copper coil. (The shrink tube keeps the fuse from shorting out with the copper coil.) It is not the fuse on the lower right that you can easily see. It is not easy to find this 5 amp fuse because its covered in black plastic (heatshrink), and is soldered on to the circuit board. There is another glass fuse that's easy to see, that is not the one. check the continuity of both the fuses and find which is blown out. remove the fuse by locating the connections for the fuse on the back side of the circuit breaker and heating the connections with a soldering iron. pick up an in-line fuse holder and a 6.3 amp 5x20mm fuse at Radio Shack and soldered it in place. will have to make the holes on the circuit board a tiny bit larger to fit the fuse holder in. a 6.3 amp to 7.0 amp fuse is perfect. The 5 amp was definitely too small.
but if fuse is not blown then,if you hear the compressor turn on but not the fan, replace the fan and you may have to defrost the evaporator coils. if the compressor does not turn on either, it's the thermostat, the defrost timer, or a relay on the main board.
if you are not familiar with doing this you can get it done by local repair technician familiar with this. its a easy and normal fix.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.
