Question about VinoTemp (VT60GNV) Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Wine-cicles My vinotemp is broken and I'm trying to figure out how to get a new control panel for it. I called the company and told them the temperature reading said "LL" and they told me it was either a freon leak or I needed a new control panel. The bottom row of wine had frozen, and the rest of the bottles were pretty cold. I had the cooler set back in a designated "nook," but it was removed after the wine froze. I plugged the unit back in when it was sitting in the middle of the room, but it ultimately went back to the "LL" reading. I plan on having a vent cut out in the nook for additional air flow, but could someone please tell me how to get a new control panel within the Vinotemp system? Thanks in advance! Kate

    My cooler suddenly went to 75degrees and will not come down - was told the same from vinotemp, but can't find a repair person in my area.

    I had the same LL issue about three months ago. It was 25 degrees. I had a repair guy tell me to unplug it and it should reset itself and that it is probably the thermostat. I did, but now 2 days ago it went back into freezer mode. I have since unplugged and will be calling to see if they can replace the thermostat. I would like to hear if anyone has fixed this issue with this unit. Also, I have now purchased a temperature monitor that will sound an alarm if it goes out of range. Only $25 on Amazon. I highly recommend.

My VinoTemp stopped working. When I opened the back cover there is a red and green LED light blinking really fast. What does that mean?


This problem is typically found in the control board circuit. Probably the 1000MFD 16V Capacitor on the DC side of the PCB may be at fault. The Fix is to replace the capacitor which can be purchased at any Radio Shack for about $2.00. Procedure is to de-solder the the bad component and solder the replacement. This is a polarized component so pay attention the polarity when installing. Test the fix; Properly reinstall the PCB wiring, and Enjoy your Chilled Wine. Recardo.

Vinotemp VT-16TEDS has light on but doesn't cool


First check the grating over the fan in the back. If it is covered with dust, there won't be enough air flow and the unit won't cool. Clean the dust off and see if it cools back down. It may take a long time to cool down if it is full of wine, so I recommend taking the wine out to test if it works.

Vinotemp not cooling


You can fix this for $5. You can confirm the problem by taking the back off and see of the red and green led on the circuit board are flashing. They will be steady if the board is ok. The fan is usually just rocking too like it is trying to start. The part is a capacitor and is $5, but you will need to be able to remove and solder this part on the circuit board. If you need the part, just let me know.

It sounds like your control module is bad. Vinotemp does list the replacement part as available at a cost of around $35

Cannot close vinotemp


The bottles are too long, and its probably hitting the glass. Try installing without it being double deep and see if that works.
