Check the ptc overload or motor start capacitor on the compressor as these help protect and provide starting torque for the compressor to start

Beeping will not stop on wine cooler - red wine side


Beeping usually indicates that something has gone wrong. Probably not cooling properly. The water coming out would indicate that the unit has defrosted. Turn the unit back on again and see if the red side is cooling properly. Some wine fridges have independent evaporators which allows different cooling temps in different parts of the cabinet.

The wine cooler doesn't seem to be cooling light goes on when you open door so pretty sure it has electricity to it?


Can you hear it running? If there is a question, leave the door open and remain there until you hear it start. This may take up to 15 minutes.
What do you have the control on? Wine coolers ar not refrigerators. (White) wine typically served at cellar temp (around 50 to 55 degrees. My friend, please don't tell me you are chilling quality Reds! You are killing them.

I have the Marvel 70 bottle wine cooler and it is making loud whining noise like if you put a stick in the wheel of spinning bike spokes when it is cooling down sometimes. it does not seem to be the fan...


I believe the 6SBAR has an evaporator fan located behind the evaporator plate ( the cooling plate) inside the unit. They had some issues with the bearings in those fans failing and will sound like a small jet engine sometimes (high pitched whine). When you hear the noise, open the door and if the noise level changes (either gets louder or goes away) then it is the evaporator fan. If your noise is coming from the compressor area and does not change when you open the door, it is most likely the condenser fan blade is loose. The evaporator fan looks like a small computer cooling fan and is located near the bottom center of the evaporator plate (out of site). The factory sells a replacement kit with a much better fan and new power supply. You can reach them at 800-223-3900. Good-luck.

No power, lights or anything


This is easy. It's the power supply problem. I bet you there is no juice coming out of the same electrical plug. So fix the plug or reset the circuit breaker.

Cooler keeps on triggers breaker


If it is tripping the breaker, stop plugging it in. The breaker is tripping because something is wrong, and continually resetting the circuit WILL cause a fire. Either return the unit, or have an electrician look at it. You can also try plugging it into another circuit in your house to isolate the problem, but please don't repeatedly reset the breaker, there IS a problem somewhere.

Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler


Hi, Well not much to go on but this is not a complicated unit. Please bear with me as we go back and forth for this type of long distance troubleshooting. The control board on this type of unit uses ambient temperature and that is what should be displayed when first turned on. Knowing that; the unit will not run if the setpoint is lower than the ambient temp. The unit operates on 27F degree difference from ambient. So lets do this, unplug the unit, remove your stuff if any, open the door for a couple hours till the unit stabilizes to room temp. Close the door, plug the unit back in and note the display. Move the setpoint to just below whatever your room temp is, if there are dashes it indicates a temp problem or the sensor that needs to know the difference. Good for now, let me know. Thanks and Good Luck!

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.

U-line 15" wine cooler not cooling, but light is on.


If the light is on and no fan or compressor is running then its your thermostat that is bad. Thats the only thing that turns on those parts.
