There is a start / run / thermal overload relay on the 3 compressor input terminals that has 3 functions

1. enage the start winding

2. switch to run winding

3. Protect the winding in the event of a bad start or locked compressor rotor.

If it is actually starting but not running at full speed / normal RPM the run capacitor can also be bad.

Unless the compressor is locked up... the cost to repair the unit is worth the expense. The only thing that would be bad news is if the repair person told you the compressor rotor is locked and the compressor needs replaced.

From the symptoms you described you have a compressor run component failure and the the compressor rotor is not locked.

My vinotemp vt60 starts cooling then stops


I sounds to me like the compressor is overheating. There is an overload on the compressor itself. Follow the wires where they go into the compressor. There will be a black wire going from the power cord to the overload. These can be purchased at appliance parts stores. Make sure there is no dirt build up on condenser coils or a kink in the tubing.

MCWC52B wine cooler stopped cooling, compressor hot


Turn it off and place a small electric fan by compressor to cool it down.
When you turn it back on, see if you hear a clicking noise. This would indicate starting components need checking.

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.

Does not cool. Compressor Hot


Sounds like the compressor starting relay. This should be available from from most appliance parts retailers that carry refrigeration parts. It is probably a plug-in relay which is easy to replace. PULL THE PLUG UNTIL YOU GET IT! Constant cycling on the thermal protector will damage the unit.

MCWC30MCG stopped cooling


Handy hubby,
welcome to Fixya,
It sounds like the compressor!
Not worth replacing this very expensive part.


Was it so hot you could not keep your hand on the compressor?
If yes then it's most likely your compressor.
Happy to be of assistance.
Sorry about your lose
Huuum
