Question about Haier HVF042 Wine Cooler

Open Question

We have a Chigo Wine Cooler, just over a year old. It is a dual climate cooler, and the top is at approx. 56, while the bottom is at 42. There is getting to be a large ice build at the back near the bottom. We admittedly have it over full at times, and nearing empty at others. Is consistency a problem?

SOURCE: Wine cooler gets too cold (freezes)

Check your thermostat setting, if the setting is ok then something wrong with your thermostat control.

Hold + and - keys down together until LED blinds (about 4 or 5 seconds), Then press + or - key to lower or raise temp. Once you've reached the desired temp press the set key.

SOURCE: Haier Wine Cooler won't cycle on and off automatically

Hey all,

For those of you who have problems with one or both or your zones not cooling on the HVTB18DABB or similar wine cooler/cellar, the problem lies the Peltier-style thermoelectric cooling module. The original part is "TEC1-12706" and information on it can be found on google. Finding this or a similar part on ebay can be done by searching for "thermoelectric cooler". If the exact TEC1-12706 part cannot be found, then any similar part that's 40mm x 40mm in size, and 51 to 69 watts should do fine. For $25 I was able to get 3 modules...one to replace the bad zone I had, and then I'll have 2 spares in case the other zone, or this new one, ever go bad again.

To replace the part you must remove the back panel from your Wine cellar. You will see 2 big fans attached to two large heat sinks. (If a heat sink on the back does not feel warm to the touch, the the other side is obviously not cooling, which means that zone is broken.) Remove the screws from the fan and the heat sink of the zone that is not cooling, and while holding the heat sink, pull the whole cooling assembly for that zone out. Dont be alarmed if you feel some insulating foam separating as you pull it out, its a tight fit so that is to be expected. Once you have the cooling assembly out of the fridge, take it apart and you will see the square ceramic cooling module inside. (REMEMBER which way the module was oriented before you remove it, so you know how to put the new one in.) Clip the red and black wires near the module and remove it from the assembly. DON'T wipe away any of the white thermal grease left behind on the heat sinks. If you have any extra thermal grease handy (available at Best Buy, or online at sites like newegg), apply an extra pea-sized dab to both sides of the new module. Put the assembly back together and splice the wires from the new module to the loose wires left behind going into the back of the Wine cellar. Mount everything back in place as before, close up the back, and youre done!

This is really a lot easier to do than it sounds, especially if you're comfortable doing this sort of thing...a few pictures would explain much better if anyone wants to illustrate.

These are actually great units, so I hope this helps somebody fix theirs!

SOURCE: My Haier 12 wine bottle cooler is dead. No fan or cooling .

Check the 2 fuses,one covered with black heat shrink, next see if internal fan is spinning, inside door, the 2 fans on the back should spin when first plugged in. also the 2 led's red and green should light up...if internal fan doesn't spin then check or replace, use batteries to get it to spin as a test...good luck,safety first...

SOURCE: I just bought a wine cooler not sure where to

Hi there.........i take it this is a used / second hand wine cooler......if so you've probably discovered why its been discarded........problem could b due to a faulty compressor unit....the fans are usually wired through the compressor...and run in conjunction with it........if the compressor isnt running then the fans are out .........if the comressor is running then check that there is nothing impeeding the fans rotation.....check for broken or damaged wiring.....check for tampering by someone else....check continuity of wiring through fan coils.........check for faulty starter unit on compressor

Wine cooler frost buildup


Some dual temperature wine coolers build up frost in the rear and top of the main compartment. Check the defrost timer, located either inside the main compartment near the light, or outside on the back of the wine cooler near the compressor. Look in the owner's manual for the correct settings for the defrost timer and adjust yours as needed. Make sure that you have the wine cooler in a spot where the outside temperature remains at or near room temperature to reduce frost buildup.

Are red wines stored on the top or bottom of the Haier BC112G wine cooler? How about white wine? Have lost my owners manual and don't know where to put red wine when the temp is set cooler for white wine


http://www.haieramerica.com/en/asset/archived/BC112G.pdf
is the link to your manual.Typically in a dual temperature zone wine cooler whites are stored in the bottom and reds on top as whites are better a little colder and the cold air will drop to the bottom of the unit.
Hope this helps!

Magic Chef Dual temp. wine Cooler #MCWBC77DZC


I suspect the cooler can only actually regulate one of those temperatures and the other one just drags along behind. Perhaps the weather is now warmer and the cooler has to keep the motor on longer to keep cool. The unregulated bottom temperature ends up cooler as a consequence.

Either that or the opposite effect is doing it.

The answer might be to find a 61 degree place in your house to keep the reds.
