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.

The temperature was set in the mid 50 range, but dropped suddenly to below freezing. I heard a loud "clunk" type noise just prior to that. I assume it is a faulty thermostat. How can it be fixed?


This uses a temperature sensor and control board.

Vino temp @ 1-800-777-8466

The "clunk" noise sounds like the internal compressor motor mounts have broken.

Our 18 bottle vinotemp cooler quit cooling, the electrical is ok


Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

I have Vinotemp wine chiller model number VT-21TEDS-2Z. It is Dual zone and the bottom zone temperature is to low. I set it to 60 but it is at 49. The temperature controller does not seem to control it.


It will either be the thermal resistor or the controller of which the electronic thermostat is a part and yes it can be repaired. It is a reasonably common and cheap fault to repair. If you go to the following link you can get the service manual FOC

Vinotemp (VT-60), cools, but doesn't turn off regardless of the temp setting. It will run, cut off for aprox 5 seconds, then continue running. Is thermostat broken? Can it be repaired?

My Vinotemp VT-12TEDS has no front panel lights or temperature reading. The unit flashes the red and green LEDs and clicks in sync with the flashes. The external cooling fans attempts to move, but does...


I also have the same problem and am looking for a solution short of buying a $35 replacement board with $10 shipping for a fridge that costs $60 new.

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.

Thermostats, the dryer temperature control switches, are controlled by the temperature inside the dryer or by the heat of the motor. One or more thermostats on the panel can be adjusted to control the temperature in the dryer. Operating thermostats sometimes stick, causing control problems. These thermostats are usually positioned near the exhaust duct bulkhead or the fan housing of the dryer. Remove the back panel of the dryer to get at them. 

Before you make any checks, try tapping the housing of the thermostats lightly with the handle of a screwdriver. This may jar the contacts loose. Temperature control switches are located behind the dryer control panel, and the panel must be removed for switch testing or replacement. Here's how to test and replace the thermostat:

Step 1: To check the control panel thermostat, make sure power is off to the dryer. Test the thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 2:
 If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type. Connect the new thermostat the same way the old one was connected.

Step 3: To check an operating thermostat, first make absolutely certain that the power to the dryer has been turned off and the dryer is cool. Then disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat. Test an operating thermostat with a VOM set to the RX1 scale; clip one probe to each terminal of the thermostat. Disconnect the leads to one side of the thermostat so that the meter won't give a false reading. If the meter reads zero, the thermostat is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.
