I had this problem, no power, no light. It was the power supply output fuse. It appears to not be blown, but a continuity check across the fuse shows an open. Unsolder and replace the 5A, 250V fuse with some locally available Radio Shack parts (holder - 270-739, fuse 270-1071). Access to the power supply board is on the rear, remove the screws on the plastic plate, including the one hidden under the QC sticker. While you are in there, clean the fan and the aluminium fins on the heat sink (cools the Peltier device).

If your fuses are not blown, look at the electrolytic capacitors (the black or blue round metal cans with the aluminium X on the top) to see if they are bulging. Replace any that are bad (a common problem in switching power supplies).

Hope this helps,

Andy B

I have a 100 bottle wine cooler. How do I turn off half of the unit


Unplugging it will shut down the whole unit. Unless it was built with two refrigerant circuits to only use half with controls to do that, you can't just shut down half.

Compressor want come on


Here is what to do . Pull out or turn off Electrical disconnect behind unit . Carefully remove panel covering controls in unit . Note most units have a flat panel with a few screws, but some GE units have a welded metal box on top of unit which needs to be removed. After exposing controls. replace or turn on disconnect. Then take a plastic handled screwdriver and push in on center of contactor (boxlike part with a lot of wires hooked ) If the compressor now comes on release contactor , and check for 24 Volts AC at base of contactor where thermostat (small wires that run on outside of black refrigerant line ) with thermostat on and calling for cool you should measure 24 to 28 volts . If voltage is present replace contactor after disconnecting from power. If no voltage go inside , remove cover from thermostat, and check for 24 volts between red ( R) and yellow (Y ) terminals on thermostat , If voltage is present , replace thermostat , no voltage check voltage in heater / air handler if you have voltage at air handler , replace thermostat wire from heater to thermostat / if no voltage check for blown fuse in heater , this should be either an inline fuse or an automotive type fuse plugged into circuit board (with power to heater disconnected check broken wire or black mark in fuse when held up to light. If fuse good turn on power to heater and check for 230v to one side of transformer, if you get voltage to Primary (incoming side ) of transformer, check output side of transformer for 24 - 28 volts. If transformer shows input but no output replace transformer after turning power off. If you heard a buzzing or grinding noise , when pushing in contactor , but compressor didn't start look at run capacitor (this is round or oval shaped object with wires going to contactor and compressor ) Looking at area where wires plug this should be a flat surface , if it looks domed shaped or bulging out , it is blown and needs replaced , use same mfd rating and 440 Volts to be on safe side. / If there was no noise from compressor when contactor was pushed in , put your hand on top of compressor (black object in center of unit ) If hot , allow to cool for at least three hours with power to unit turned off and retest . If compressor comes on after cooling , check for bad fan motor in outside unit (it may make a squealing or wining noise and stop runing for a while , also check for / clean outdoor coils
Hope this helps .
Thanks,
Alex

Wine fridge is always running but never cools below room temperature.


the processor cooling fans for the CPU and case fans are 3 PINS.. you can use them but remember that these are 12V fans. once its the same power it will work. Ps if needed you can cut the connects from your old fan and connect it to the new ones to get it to fit properly..

My kool space wine cooler no longer is functioning. Can it be fixed? Or should I buy a new unit?


I recommend that you will post your question under a different category (perhaps wine coolers) and maybe add more details to it, so it will be easier for Experts to understand the question and answer it.

Bonaire evaporative water keeps running whne the unit is turned off


I would check electric solenoid valve on water line to make sure it is shuting when power is off to blower. Some of these valves can be taken apart and cleaned if it has debris stopping valve ffrom fully closing. To do this shut power off to unit, shut main water supply to cooler. Usually there are four screws holding top cover on valve remove these,remove cover and clean valve. Reassemble making sure that cover gasket is in good condition and properly placed. Turn water and power back on and try unit. Hope this helps you. Thanks
