Thermoelectic cooler not cooling properly

I have a Rubbermaid thermoelectric car cooler. recently it startted flashing the ";low vehicle battery" red light,. when it comes on and the green cold; light goes off. Sometimes it continues cooling and sometimes it doesn't. Is there a authorized repair facility in so-cal Calif. I can visit for warranty service ?
Power supply is not a problem, power port is live and I tried the cooler in two other cars.Ventilation is good ,not blocked or restricted, although I don't feel the fan blowing through the vent on top like it did before

Purchase date is 11/16/2007

I think you've actually diagnosed your problem. Get that fan moving and you'll probably make this go away. Rubbermaid has a website and decent customer service. If you're in warranty...go there first.

Does a thermoelectric wine cooler have a ventilation system?


Absolutely, every wine cooling system has to have a ventilation system that will channel the heat generated in the operation, outside of the unit, including the thermoelectric wine cooler.

Why should I buy a thermoelectric wine cooler as opposed to a compressor model?


There are many reasons to purchase a thermoelectric cooler including, but not limited to, being quiet and eco-friendly. Personally, I prefer thermoelectric coolers because they don't vibrate. The vibration of a compressor cooling system can cause the sediments in the wine to be disturbed and affect the flavor/taste of the wine.

How do I know whether a thermoelectric cooling system is better for me than a compressor?


This depends on several factors: how much wine you keep on hand, where you will be putting the cooler (cool/warm room in the house) and if you are buying a freestanding cooler/built-in. If you never have more than two cases, plan on keeping the cooler somewhere it won't get too warm and you want a freestanding cooler, you should look into purchasing a thermoelectric cooling system.

What is a thermoelectric wine cooling system?


Thermoelectric cooling is best used in small wine coolers. Small fans from inside the cooling fridge evenly dispense cool temperatures throughout the interior of the unit.

Broke the 12v DC plug on our Rubbermaid/Vector Thermoelectric cooler. Can't find a specific replacement plug. Any specific specs I need to look for in a replacement?


A generic plug should work...just be sure to size the fuse correctly to protect the unit. Most thermoelectric units draw about 4 to 5 amps...so a 10 amp fuse usually works.

The 5640 Coleman cooler motor runs, but unit does not cool.


This is a thermoelectric (TE) cooler. There is no gas' to replace in it's cooling system. It is possible the thermoelectric coupler has gone bad. Unfortunately Coleman does not seem to offer a replacement part. If you Google thermoelectric couplers, maybe you can find something on the web. Good Luck.
