Question about Avanti 310SST Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Under counter beverage cooler

My Avanti under counter beverage cooler (model # BCA 5102 SS) is making a loud "grinding" noise. I have pulled it out and it appears to be coming from the component that houses the fan. When I turn it on, the fan starts, then the noise comes, and the fan stops. Is it possibly a replaceable part? My refrigerator is 2 years old, if it is replaceable, is it worth it?

Re: Under counter beverage cooler

It might be ice around the fan. Try defrosting it. This has been happening to mine, even through it is supposed to be 'frost free'

I have an older model Avanti Wine Chiller that began making a very loud almost-grinding noise last night. It continues to cool but I have turned it off due to the deafening sound. Any ideas?

first off determine where the noise is coming from what area? I suspect u may have a fan or condenser fan problem restricted , impeded or going out?

Beverage cooler making noise

There are small fans that they incorporate in those. If you can get to it put a drop of 3 in 1 oil on each end of the motor.Some of those little bottles of oil have a telescoping straw like piece that extends out a couple inches.

Fan runs but it isn't cooling. Is there something I can replace or should I dump it?

For most of those little coolers it will cost way more to repair them then a new one costs... they are made to be disposable...

Avanti Beverage cooler gets too cold

Hi, sounds to me as though your temperature control is faulty, and the unit is running all the time. This control will have to be replaced. This is something you can do if you take your time and draw a wiring diagram in case you forget. It will have a long coiled up wire with a bulb on the end of it mounted in the evaporator section in the refrigerator section. This all comes out together. This is the only thing that would cause this problem. Get all of the numbers, model, serial, and part numbers when you go to the appliance parts house to get one. You should have no problems in doing this. Please keep me posted as I am sure this unit is worth changing out the stat.

Avanti Beverage Cooler BCA5105SG running very loud.

Inside the cooler is the evaporator fan usually right in the middle behind a cover. As it slows down you have less circulation and ice forms quicker and cooling is diminished. Sounds like it is going out.

Where can I get a wiring diagram for an under-counter Beverage-Air cooler. The condenser runs then stops after a few seconds. Figuring a bad relay? The power runs but the condenser kicks off immediately...

If it's the condenser fan you are talking about you will not need a wiring diagram. The fan should be wired to the compressor and the thermostat. the thermostat is the relay to start the fans and compressor. I will continue to look for a wiring diagram. When the fan wears out they will stop causing the cooler to overheat. I think replacing the fan would be what you need. I believe that Beverage Air used the Copeland compressor with the condenser fan mounted on the one end of the the same slide in compressor. Check your voltage on the 2 wires going to the fan. When compressor is on the fan should also be running. I just have the feeling that condenser fan is defective.

Avanti N252BG beverage cooler does not get cold enough

Brand new installed avanti beverage cooler. In a basement undercounter so room temp. around 65 degrees. Only gets to around 45 degrees inside even though temp is set to 34 degrees. Most of the time it sits for days without being opened but still not cold. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

No longer cools.

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