    I have the same frig and same issues. Seems like the power source is good (lights and controls work) but neither the inside or outside fans work. Can you let me know if getting new fans installed resolved the solution?

  • Anonymous Apr 27, 2008

    We had the Oster 12-bottle wine cooler in use for about 2 weeks before it quit cooling. The interior light and temp controls work, just no cooling. When troubleshooting on the Oster website, this product does not appear to exist. I have recently contacted an Oster repair shop for advice.

    Is there a manufacturer's product warranty for this product?

  • Bohicatra May 07, 2008

    Same problem, ours has gone out after 5 months. Lights work, temp dial works, you can put it on 50 and it just goes back to 76, The fan will not kick on and the power source won't even try to come on, there is a green light and a red light in the back, but I can not find a reset button on this thing

  • cpxl8 May 08, 2008

    Noticed that the wine fridge temperature was a 74 degrees. opened the unit and could smell a slight burning odor. The fan and quit working and I have only had the unit since the end of December of 2007. Has anyone had any luck getting the unit replaced by Oster or should I go through BestBuy.

  • Stickman52 May 23, 2008

    I have the same problem with my cooler. The fans stopped working a few days ago and the temp. went up to room tempature. i plan on trying the solutions listed and if one of them works, I'll repost. If someone comes up with another solution, please let me know.

  • Martz54 May 27, 2008

    The unit never cooled very well, but now is at 72 degrees.

    Our wine cooler quit working after about one month of use. It is getting power to it. Now it will not cool at all.

  • Anonymous Jun 03, 2008

    I have the same problem with the fan that everyone else is reporting here. Just stopped working the other day. I have only had the unit for 5 months. Would not recommend buying to anyone else.

  • eighty-one Jun 16, 2008

    Have had our cooler since Christmas '07. Working great until today,
    temperature up to 71 degrees and will not lower. I have totally enjoyed
    this unit until now. I have it loaded and am very disappointed in its'
    short lifespan. Please let me know if anyone else is having this
    problem. What I really want is a solution to fixing it. Thanks Jill

  • phathaway Jun 18, 2008

    The fan stopped working and the cooler no longer cools. It it is room temperature. I tried all the trouble shooting solutions and then brought it to my repair guy. He says he can't figure it out, He also can't figure out how to replace the fan and with what. I've only had this cooler does not workrk.


  • Angelived Jun 19, 2008

    I noticed that the temperature on my wine cellar started to slowly rise and about 3 days ago it completely stopped cooling and is now at room temperature. I have unplugging, cleaning the fans and it still is not working. Very disappointed since this was a christmas gift and do not have the receipt or warranty info anymore.

  • Anonymous Jul 17, 2008

    Same problem, and I called the 866-866-6283 number and they said I could get a refund if I still had the receipt - which did not help since it was a present.



  • Anonymous Jul 30, 2008

    Wow! I'm glad to see we're not the only ones having this problem. We got ours as a Christmas gift, too, so I guess we're out of luck. I've tried unplugging, cleaning, moving to a cooler area of the house: no luck.



    I guess it's back to the big ol' fridge for all my whites! :-(

  • juliewillits Aug 05, 2008

    unplugged unit and plugged back in.

  • isadaqueen Aug 07, 2008

    Same problem here. I've tried looking online for troubleshooting manual but I am not going to commit hours to it. I'm just going to take it back to Best Buy and save for a commercial chiller. For now, the fridge will do, although I will need to "warm" the wine before enjoying.

  • Anonymous Aug 21, 2008

    Had the same problem. No fan and no cooling. Checked the fuse as
    recommended here, yep, blown fuse. I replace it with a 6A fuse and it
    was good to go. One note, it is not the main fuse that you can easily
    see, it is the fuse on the uper left side that is covered in the black
    heatshrink. That is the fuse to check. Thanks for the help. It saved me
    a lot of time and trouble!

  • Anonymous Sep 23, 2008

    I have the exact same problem, except that now the 866-866-6283 posted in my warranty card can't be dialed from my area. I'm reasonably handy, but my fuse does not show any sign of being burned out.



  • kingcornea Oct 29, 2008

    Has anyone fixed their cooler yet? Same prob showed up 4 days ago.

  • swa826 Nov 04, 2008

    I have the same model, same problem - power but no cool, same age, same purchase date and same place. I called 800-528-7713 which is a customer service line for Oster. Got right through, but highly automated. Ended up in Oster Kitchen Appliances and then (I think) I chose "other". Talked to a CSR who took all my contact information down and said a supervisor will call. Told her I'd read on the internet that this is isn't an isolated problem (she definitely agreed) and told her others had been told the same thing but no phone call from a supervisor (she said that's because they haven't started calling back - still working on the issue). She explained that it was a Licensee Product and that they're out of business. Also said NOT to cut the cord off and send it with the receipt - that was instruction from the out of business company. She said hang onto the receipt and sit tight for now. I mentioned that the warranty would be coming up soon (1 yr = 11/23/08) and she said it would not be a problem since I have registered my problem prior to the expiration. She was very cooperative, instructive, etc, so I'm hopeful. MIght have helped that I called from my office which is a law office Caller ID!

  • Anonymous Dec 24, 2008

    I also had the fan not working so the cooler did not cool i changed the suggested fuse and it's running good now,i had one fuse holder from a power supply that i had from all receiver amp, so i re-soldered the two holders to the board i had to make place for this two holders by changing the red wire to the middle hole so i could fit it, now in the near future if it blows it's easier to replace.

  • oggcouple Feb 08, 2009

    We actually bought 2 of these wine refridgerators in Dec of '07. Put them in storage until last month when we finished our remodel. The cooler with the red wine, set at 62 degrees is still running, the one set at 54 degrees obviously had to work harder and quit.

    A HUGE KUDOS to the guys with the fuse answer. We bought an inline fuse holder at Radio Shack and extra 6.3 fuses (cost $6.11), replaced the fuse and viola--colder than ever and working better than ever. We will be replacing the other coolers fuse, just in case. Called our son--same problem to share with him. He'll have to purchase a new cord as well since he went the route of the warranty request with no answer of course.

  • kmauryo Mar 21, 2009

    Only had the Oster 12-btl. wine cellar for 1 month from Best Buy, returned it to best buy and was told my 30 days were past.. what a Rip! We need to all file a class-action lawsuit. I am out $129.00 and know nothing about changing and "soldering a fuse" Are you people all techs? damn I feel inadequate. someone instruct me pls. on how to change this so-called fuse...thanks

  • Generik Apr 03, 2009

    Looks like mine is blown too. I did have an earlier issue where the black plastic filter in front of the fan had accumulated a bit of dust and that brought the temps up from 52 degrees to around 63. I took that off and blew it out and within a couple hours the temp dropped back down. Unfortunately now the fan on mine does not even spin so I am hoping a friend of mine with some soldering experience can help me replace that fuse.

  • Anonymous Apr 08, 2009

    Has anyone actually recieved their full refund after you got your case number from the Oster Appliance Support and mailed it and the cut off electric cord from the failed unit???? I mailed mine in September 2008 and have heard nothing from them. I called the 866-866-6283 and it is no longer a working number. I also sent an email to customerservice@servicersupport.com which is where my case number for the refund came from.... It's no longer a good email address... HELP !!!!

  • Sonnyhwh8 Apr 11, 2009

    I have the same problem and due to my lack of soldering experience, I will need the assistance of another to help me replace the fuse. Also, I plan to submit a complaint to www.consumeraffairs.com thanks to the advice of "eosglass".

  • shutchdix May 18, 2009

    I have the same problem and will definitely look into replacing the fuse to see if that works. Can anyone tell me what order to reconnect the 3 connectors (6 pins) on the front panel? Is there a wiring order or diagram?

  • Mike Jones Dec 28, 2011

    Just Fixed a NON WORKING COOLING UNIT. the fuse on the board looked good "the one you can see" THERE ARE 2 FUSES ... the other is covered by HEAT SHRINK and it was blown... De-Solder and replace with a Radio Shack 5amp 205V fuse ...

    You need to replace the fuse with a 7 amp fuse!

I had the same problem as other bloggers--temp would not decrease and fan did not run. . . as suggested by others, I replaced the 5A heat-shrink wrapped fuse in upper left corner of circuit board (fuse is covered in black heat shrink wrap and is in a U-shape). I unsoldered the two ends of the fuse on the circuit board (be sure you locate the correct two holes) and then replaced it with two parts from Radio Shack--a 5x20mm Inline Fuse Holder rated at 250V AC, 5A (part # 270-1238) and used a 6.3A slow-blow 250V fuse (part # 270-1066). Now the wine Refir works great!

To replace the part take all the screws off the sheet metal covering on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the circuit board from the plastic holder. I left all the wires plugged in and just unsoldered the fuse with the circuit board still connected--but to solder you will need an extra pair of hands to hold the board while you solder.

If you don't have it, get some silver solder while at Radio Shack and a thin, needle-point soldering iron tip. Radio shack has 30W soldering irons for less than $10. You really don't need soldering experience--just a steady hand. Even if you have none of these parts your total outlay at RadioShack is less than $25 for everything.

    Worked perfectly. I agree with Solution 10 as well - the unit definitely cools much more quickly. I did not have to alter the board at all - total cost was $8.59 (fuses, holder and solder).

I followed someone else's advice on this string about replacing the fuse on the upper left side of the circuit board (as you face it from the back of the fridge). It was not easy to find this 5 amp fuse because its covered in black plastic (heatshrink), and is soldered on to the circuit board. There is another glass fuse that's easy to see, that is not the one. I checked the continuity of both the fuses and found that this one WAS out. I removed the fuse by locating the connections for the fuse on the back side of the circuit breaker and heating the connections with a soldering iron. I picked up an in-line fuse holder and a 6.3 amp 5x20mm fuse at Radio Shack and soldered it in place. I had to make the holes on the ciruit board a tiny bit larger to fit the fuse holder in. It's working great now. Actually, it's cooling off 3 or 4 times faster then it did before. I think a 6.3 amp to 7.0 amp fuse is perfect. The 5 amp was definetely too small.

I also have this model and upon opening the unit the fuse encased in shrink tubing was indeed blown. As per the suggestion above I de-soldered the fuse and added a 5x20mm in-line fuse holder and picked up a few extra 6.3 amp slow blows (all they had). Works like a charm. Cost me maybe 5 bucks. If your unit is dead and you can't get a refund and you have some soldering experience give it a try.

Found the fuse that I read in some of the solutions. The fuse is on the circuit board covered with a black tube. It looks like a upside down "U" on the upper left hand side of the board, next to a copper coil. (The shrink tube keeps the fuse from shorting out with the copper coil.) It is not the fuse on the lower right that you can easily see. I'm an electrician and I even had a hard time finding it! This is not a real easy fix unless you are a little adapt at working with electronics or a small soldering iron. I wonder how many of these units were thrown out because of a $.25 stinking fuse? Hope this helps. Bone

The problem with the unit is that the fan stops working. I was told that the problem occurs because the fuse installed is 5 amps and should have been 6 or 7 amps. The fix: As you face the back of the unit, the glass fuse is on the left, protected under a black plastic cover. The fuse is soldered in (of all things). I took the circuit board out and spent 30 bucks to have the fuse replaced. Works fine. Want to try a number? 800-605-5364 You're welcome.

Yep it was the fuse on the upper left corner covered in heat shrink. Replaced the fuse and good as new.

Same problem. After reading this thread I purchased an inline fuse holder and a 7 amp fuse at Radio Shack. [less than $5] I took a digital picture of the circuit board before removing it as there are several plug-in connectors. After thirty minutes of work I had the connector soldered in, 7 amp fuse in place and everything back together. Everything is working fine. I might investigate getting a higher quality fan.

Had the wine cellar one week, ran it empty for a day in the hot weather and the fan stopped working just like for everybody else. Followed the advice from Jack Dx and Jet_mm and yes the 'hidden' fuse had blown. Replaced it with a 7amp fuse and even with the weather still hot it is cooling down very quickly.

Posted on Aug 06, 2008

  • William Holmes Aug 06, 2008

    I have discovered that because of the heat dissipation design of these wine cellar units they will not cool if the ambient temperature is above 80. That is why the fan stops working blowing the fuse from overload. They cannot cope with temperatures above 80. The solution is, if it is hotter than 80 in your house switch off the unit or switch on the central air or put a fan so it blows behind the unit, lots of air keeps the unit cool.

If its only a little job to do to clean first for most profit to help the cause of this problem is to remove the dusty lubrication of the axle of the motor because everytime it started IF the FAN axles are NOT clean and good lubricated then it will suck to much by every startup once in a year can sometimes neccesary to clean because dust turns easely in the front sinterbearings of the fan motor(s) andthe whole motor becomes warmer and lubrication need to refreshed is much better, and thats the same thing as you have a as a suggested cheap living room fan there is inside the coil a temperature fuse build in but there are no glass fuses to find and if its not properly maintained as every summer use a little bit wd40 or some handy oil on the motor axle to have a much lower resist for the start because thats the moment that the coil temperature fuse inside the electric field coil (most to find inside a wrapped heat shrink or cardboard tube) so if that is doing each time then fuses are not neccesary to change with higher ampere ones because its just to prevent thermal failures in the coil of the motor by a to high heat dissipation. factories have special calculated the choice for the fuses in order for CE comformation on fire insurance and more .

I got tired of my wife using it as a Wine Storage Cabinet, so I decided to tear into the back. Yes there are 2 fuses one on the bottom that is mounted horizontal that you can see and there is one that is in the middle of the Circuit board that is covered with black shrink wrap. All I did was snip It off and solder the wire direct.

As everybody else said, I un-soldered the existing fuse, which was without a doubt blown, and re-soldered a new one in. It's working great now. Instantly started cooling off and the fan came back instantly, things it was not doing in the past. 

I left the metal road coming from the other solder-point in the board, and just re-attached it to the new fuse at the other tip. The rod is quite stupid in my opinion, as the placement of the fuse too.

This fuse issue was the problem with mine - thanks. I installed a fuse holder, had to drill out the board to take a the larger wire size of the fuse-holder wire, soldered it up and were back in business.

To clarify, the problem fuse is mounted end up, with a jumper wire up to the end of it and covered in heavy shrink tubing. The pc board is single sided, so drilling it is ok. It is not like a more sophisticated board with multi-layers or plated through holes.

To clerify, that nortorious 5 Amp fuse, in black heat shrink, is "F2". The main fuse "F1", not covered in heat shrink, doesn't seem to give any problems.

I JUST replased my fuse yesterday. and cooler is working great now. If you cant do it yourself, take to an electrician. tell him it is the fuse on the upper left of the board that is black shrink wrapped. It will be a kindrgarten job for him and probably not very expensive. buy the parts yourself and save evn more. this was an easy fix!

I've read all the posts and I'd like to add 1 more person with the same problem. I can't find a troubleshooting guide anywhere. the fans stopped working, there is a red and green LED light on the back circuit board. I can only assume the red means there's a problem (duh). Is there a reset button? I only had the cooler for 8 months and was working fine until 4 days ago.  Did anyone bring it back to Best Buy for a refund? Do they keep copies of the receipts in their computers?

Wow, there is a lot of misinformation in this thread. This unit is not made by Elite Classics, so do not call them. The correct number is 866-866-6283 (the same one as on your warranty card). This will get you in to the service center and they will take care of your problem.

Jack Dx is correct in that the problem is the fuse. If you are handy you can solder in a new fuse yourself, it is a standard 5mmx20mm glass fuse. Use a 6.5 or 7 amp fuse.

I have same problem. I went to Oster.com and under customer service there is a link to locate the local oster service center. I dropped it off and oster will fix/replace under warranty (Dec 2007/BestBuy).

Posted on Jun 02, 2008

Problem:

We got our for x-mas and about 4 mounths after we got it the temp slowly rose. It said of the inst. book that the temp can go down to about 50 but ours only went down to 51. About 4 mounths after we got it it went up to like 54-55. We returned to best buy for a new one and tried that one out. The new one had the same promblem but only we couldnt find the return slip so we couldnt return it. (the built in fan on mine works) so...

Solution:

I took a fan from an old computer of mine and connected it on the back of the unit were the holes are in the metal at the top. (above the built in fan). If you are facing the back of the unit the fan would be on the left upper hand corner of the unit. This was the area the was the most hottest. After about 2 days the temp went back down to about 52 but it wont go any lower.

Hope that helps. (if you use a computer fan, then use a 9v dc cord to hook it up with.

Posted on May 11, 2008

I called the local tech service center here and they told me they did not have much luck with these coolers because parts where unavailable, Why can't you even find this cooler on the Oster web site? The tech said it's like someone else makes it and they sell it. I am very unhappy with this company at this time and plan on NOT buying any of their products again

I have a oster wine cooler OW0912H6H the fans on it quit working the inside light and the temp controls seem to be working ok any tips?

If the fans have gone out then I would replace the fans as it does spread the cool air inside of the wine cooler to keep the wine cold – other wise the air just sits and will not circulate – if you cannot serv the fans yourself – call a serv tech and they will do the repair for you ---- for parts you call 1-800-786-2326 or the parts website of:

Wine fridge is not getting cold anymore


Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.

My wine cellar (Model: ow0912H6H) still runs but it does not cool. What can I do? I don't believe that there is a compresser in ot. I don't know what cools it.


I had the same problem and noticed that the lint screen behind the cooler was full of lint where it was almost completely clogged. I vacummed it and it seems to have done the trick.

Check the lint trap behind your cooler to make sure it isn't clogged... I had the same problem and after vaccuming the lint trap, my cooler started cooling again

Wine cooler does not get cool - fans do not run the light and temperature display do work


if you hear the compressor tun on but not the fan, replace the fan and you may have to defrost the evaporator coils. if the compressor does not turn on either, it's the thermostat, the defrost timer, or a relay on the main board.

I have an Oster 12-bottle wine celler model OWO912H6H that was a Christmas gift in 2007. I just noticed the temperature is 98 degrees and I cannot get it to come down with the down button. I am very...


Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.

Oster 12 bottle wine frig, how to set temp instructions please


I suggest you return that puppy as fast as you can.
The company that makes them took bankruptcy and warranties are no good.
To top it off the fans usually **** out in 6 mos or so.

Don't cool-no refund/satisfaction from Oster.


Ok, fist problem was unit quit working..if it quit cooling yet lights still worked inside and still had power readings on door is not power coord. If the unit stoped cooling is probably fuse and there are two of them in back of unit. One fuse clearly can be seen, the other is coated with a black shrink fit coating and is not well seen. This second fuse is the problem, you will need to replace it. I have same unit and this is what I had to do to get it cooling again.

Fan doesn't work on oster wine cellar


First question, do you have power to the unit and the cooling fan is not working? If this is the problem then sounds like one of the two fuses in back panel has burnt out.
