Question about Vintage Keeper chillR 300 Wine Cooler

Open Question

Only chills to 66 degrees, shuts off before getting to setting of 58 degrees. Seems to run fine, it's as if it thinks it hit 58. I have unplugged, waited and plugged back in. Worked great for 6 years and all of the sudden.. Thanks for advice! Brian Hall

Why is my heating system short cycling?


What is your Temperature Rise across the furnace? Match this with the name plate. This tells you a lot. Is the t-rise higher or lower? If its higher, you could have restricted airflow or exhaust issues. If its lower, could be gas pressure or duct work problems, pulling in colder air somewhere. More info is needed to help. I am assuming the furnace is operating continuously when you say it will not heat over 66 degrees?

Still not getting cold


First, if the compressor doesn't run, it'll never get cold. You didn't say if it ran or not.

The defrost circuit is *designed* to cut the compressor out of the circuit during the 2 - 3 times (8 to 12 hour intervals) each day it goes into defrost mode. The compressor will remain off until the defrost temperature sensor (hidden in the freezer section) reaches 50 degrees (or so) *OR* for 20 to 25 minutes each time the defrost timer cycles on. If it is stuck in defrost mode because it failed to advance due to a bad clock motor or because of bad contacts, it will *prevent* the compressor circuit from ever being energized.

Check into this circuit and the location of this timer for your particular fridge. You should not need to worry about the defrost terminator, thermistor, sensor, heater or anything else in the *defrost circuit* at this time to get the compressor running.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My refrigerator/freezer is warm


If the motor is running but it's not getting cold then you may have lost coolant. Did someone clean the ice out with a knife?

I have a westinghouse 2 door fridge that is not getting cold enough, 7 degrees in the fridge, freezer seems ok. not sure where to set the controls as i have no manual. its a 2 door,freeze at the top and...


i think your ref working normal try to adjust thermostat setting on the fridge if you want to cool lower than 7 degrees but this temp. allready can chill the food. then you said that freezer ok.

I just installed a honeywell 5-2 progammable thermostate.. Everything is hooked up fine and I have my days, hours wake, sleep, leave...etc all set, but when it goes on.. for example, I have it set for...


You didn't include a model number, so it's hard to know for sure - but I'll take a stab at this one. Many of these t-stats have a programmable offset to reduce "hunting". This can be as little as 1 degree or more than 2 degrees.

This means if you set the offset to 1 degree and the room temperature to about 65 degrees, the furnace will heat the room until the t-stat registers a rising temperature of 66 degrees. The furnace shuts off and will not turn on again until the t-stat registers a falling temperature of 64 degrees. The average is 65 degrees, and prevents the furnace from starting and stopping numerous times instead of just once with the 1 degree offset.

You can further reduce the number of furnace start and stops by increasing the offset to 2 degrees. This would work like this when the t-stat is set to 65 degrees and the room is cool:

Room Temp Furnace
63 On
64 On
65 On
66 On
67 On
68 Off

The room is now warm and heat or furnace is off. The room begins to cool like below:

67 Off
66 Off
65 Off
64 Off
63 Off
62 On

With a 1 degree offset, the room temperature varies +/-1 degree (about 2 degrees total). With a 2 degree offset, the temperature about varies +/ -2 degrees (about 4 degrees total).

Also, when the thermostat shut the heat off, the heat that was made is delivered to the space instead of wasted by sending outdoors - so the room will get a little warmer even though no fuel is being burned. The same holds true at the other end. When the t-stat turn heat on, fuel is burned, but there's little heat until the source has reached the optimum temperature and then the heat is delivered to the space.

I hope this helps & good luck! Pleas rate my reply - thanks!

I just got a new heating unit installed. However it runs constantly. If the target temp is 68 degrees it will hit 68 degrees and just keep running. It does the same at 63 degrees. Is this normal?


Dear friend! Any thermostat, it's calibrating to cut off at the end of 2nd beginning and cut in 2nd ending of temp.
Ex: In heat mode, If you set @ 68 degree, it will cut off 70 degree beginning and cut in at the end of 66 degree.
Hope it's helpful to you?

Beer is not chilling and the display keeps blinking


Let me know what you find out. I un plug the thermastate and it stops blinking. If I plug back in. It starts blinking again. Regardless with or with out it plugged in the unit will
not cool below 66 degree's. I think there isosomething wrong with
the cooling agent or the thermastat

Freezer works fine, refrigerator only cools to 58 degrees on coolest setting!


replace the evaporator fan, this fan problem is hard to diagnose because the fan will spin but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and the refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace is around $300.00

I'm not a fan of zoning but it sounds like they don't have the ducting done correctly. There has to be bleeder trunks installed in the unit because your are taking a unit that is designed to cool or heat a particular square footage and make it cool or heat a smaller area. This makes the unit way too big for the job you are asking it to do. If the ducting is improper, you are going to have issues like this. A lot of contractors will not admit that the ducting isn't correct due to the cost to correct it. I personally think (my opinion) that 4 zones are a little excessive. Sounds like you really need 2 units. It's hard to tell from my point of view since I'm not there to actually see what is going on. I would have a couple of different contractors come out and give you an estimate to fix the issue and then tell the installer to come and fix what they say is wrong.

Getting cooler air


if you are desiring to have it 62 degrees in the house, the cool setting needs to be more to like 66 deg and the heat setting needs to be like 58 degrees. that would make it more around 62 degrees in the house.

change the heat setting first to 58 and then change the cool setting to 66. this gives your temperature 62 +/- 4 deg.
