Question about Viking VUWC141 Wine Cooler
I've noticed my Viking Wine Cellar randomly dropping its temperature to below 40 degrees despite being set for 55 degrees. The temperature read-out still displays 55 while the actual temperature is much, much lower. When I unplug and replug the unit, the temperature gauge finally starts displaying the accurate temperature.
Question is: What are possible causes for the wine fridge to be over 20 degrees colder than setting?
Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

The beverage center and wine cellars have a temperature display for each zone. 12 volts
AC is supplied to the display board from a transformer in the unit compartment. The displays are only temperature displays and have nothing to do with any cooling function. A thermistor is used to sense temperature for each zone. The thermistor for the bottom zone is located inside the lower portion of the separator. The thermistor for the top zone on the wine cellar, (mid zone on beverage
center), is located in the upper portion of the separator. The thermistor for the beverage center upper zone is located on the inside of the 2-piece evaporator cover. It is on the right-hand side.
The mid temperature for the bottom zones on either unit are 60? Fahrenheit plus or minus 5 degrees. The mid temperature for the mid zone on the beverage center and the top zone
on the wine cellar is 45? Fahrenheit plus or minus 5 degrees. The mid temperature for the
top zone on the beverage center is 38? Fahrenheit plus or minus 5 degrees. I think at tis time you should check each section with a pocket size digital thermometer to cofirm tha the mechanical thermostat is within calibration. Click Here=> 4344690 Temperature Control

I believe the problem may be in the PCB transformer shown at the bottom right corner of the wiring diagram. It is possible o change the transformer but I have not been able to find the board that powers the LED temperature readouts. If needed let me know and I will call Whirlpool mfor you, Thanks, Sea Breeze
