Hi,

It seems this is either due to faulty fan or fan motor. This could be a reason that the wine cooler is not cooling at optimum rate. As i cannot see the cooler, this is what i could judge from the information you gave to me.

I would still say, it would be worth repair, if this is due to faulty fan or motor ( motor seems to be the main cause ).

The main tough thing would be to get fan motor. You could try to get a replacement motor or a compatible one from the parts store near your home and give a shot. More likely, you would be successful, if the fault is related to motor.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    It has to be a different fan.You need to mention the model number.However, i doubt fan motor which is available for around 20 bucks ( for most of the models i am aware of ).

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Check the continuity for that fuse. Also, check the fan motor.As i mentioned i would doubt fan motor.Kindly read :-

    the fuse seems to be okay it is hard wired to the board and has continuity. could the fuse still be bad? or do you have another suggestion?

    If the fuse does show continuity, they are fine. Check the fan motor and revert.

SOURCE: Wine Cooler Does NOT get cool.

Here is the web site to locate your closest oster service center. They should be able to tell you what their charge will be up front so that you can compare that charge to the cost of a new one.

Now days, sadly, many of these items are too costly to repair so they go to the landfill..

I have a wine enthusiast wine cooler model 272 03 27. Not cooling,compressor kicks on. The fans are running.The temperature never gets below 64.Is it the temp sensor or Control board? Thanks Randy


It sounds like it is in the correct temperature range. You may ned to adjust the temperature to a lower setting.

Can not get wine cooler to get cool. Red lights keep,blinking. Need structions on how to set it.


If the light is on and no fan or compressor is running then its your thermostat that is bad. That's the only thing that turns on those parts. As you said the unit is new you should contact your dealer either to replace it.

Keep us updated.

Stopped cooling no humming or nothing digtal reading are working but nothing else


you need to replace the fan at the back of the unit. no noise means the fan is not working. The fan removes the heat from inside the unit to cool it. no fan, no cool. Your local appliance repair can fix it. the fan does not cost much and there isn't much labor involved. If you want to tackle it yourself then take your model number to the appliance store and order a fan, remove the back and replace the fan. Some fans are plug and play, some are not. if yours is not plug and play then you will have to splice wires. either way, the fan is your problem.

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.

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.

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.

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...
