SOURCE: Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool

If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at www.lifeluxurymarvel.com
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver

you have a restriction in the cooling side sounds like the filter line dryer is clogged up and will need to be replaced. Also the system will have to be recharged by a professional check to see if its in warranty.

SOURCE: marvel wine cooler leaks water

All coolers produce water as a result of condensation which occurs when air is cooled. The water appears upon the radiator (technically called the evaporator) inside the cold area of the cooler. When the water drips off of the radiator, it is caught by a pan which may or may not be a removable piece. The pan should lean toward the rear of the cooler and the water should pour into a drain tube. The drain tube should lead down into the compressor area of the cooler and deposit the water into another pain which is outside of the cooler where it should evaporate back into the air. Sometimes "cardboard" fins are used to help the water evaporate. Sometimes a pan with a huge surface area is used to help the water evaporate. Other times the pan is literally on top of the compressor. Make sure the cooler itself is level. Make sure room air is able to move over the pan where the water is supposed to evaporate. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged. Make sure pans are not leaking.

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?


If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

It just stopt cooling (wgersdorf@yahoo.com)


Hello,

Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.

Lastly, check the compressor.

These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.

Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.

Bye for now.

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

Temperature control does not work. Unit freezes everything no matter where the temperature control is set (Marvel Wine Refrigerator)


Either the thermostat itself is bad, or the relay is sticking. If you break the connection between the T-stat and the relay, and it keeps runnning, the problem is the relay.

If the compressor stops running when you break the connection or disconnect the T-stat, then the T-stat needs to be replaced.

Unit does not run due to faulty thermostat.


The 6SBAR-BS-G most likely has the solid state thermostat that consists of three parts: A solid state control board, a 0-100K potentiometer (connected to the control dial) and a thermistor. The thermistor is the most common part to fail. I would call the factory and ask for technical assistance to help isolate which part has failed. Most service companies do not stock their parts. The factory's number is 800-428-6644 or write an email to marvel@marvelindustrie.com

Noisey, loud shrill


If you just got the unit you should contact your dealer for warranty service. The only noise you should hear is a slight hum of the compressor and the soft blowing noise of the condenser fan. It sounds as if the evaporator fan on this unit is toast. That is also why is it having a hard time maintaining temperature. The temperature indicated is actual air temperature sensed so it will go up and down a couple of degrees above and below setpoint but when operating correctly the product temperature will be very stable.

If the servicer does not fully understand the new digital system, make sure he/she contacts the factory technical assistance rep. at 800-428-6644.

Marvel 61WC Wine Frige Won't Turn Off


Check he frost pattern on your evaporator. That is a plate sensing control and if the system developes a freon leak you will have frost on the beginning of the cycle (middle bottom and travels to the left, then across the top middle, then to the right and back to the lower middle) but not at the end where the thermsitor senses temperature. This will cause the unit to run almost continously no-matter what setting you have it on. If this is so, you need to have the leaking component repaired/replaced. You will not want to let your unit run like this since the longer you do..the more components will get damaged. If you are still with-in your warranty period, contact your dealer to initiate service. If not, contact any appliance repair shop you trust in your area. I hope this helps.

Relay


I truly doubt the control is the faulty component. It has two inputs it uses to decide when to cycle the compressor.

1) the potentiometer with the control dial is connected to terminals # 6 and 7.
2) the thermsitor is connected to terminals # 4 and 5.

Most of the time it is the thermistor that has failed. Marvel Part number 42244531.

You can order it directly from the factory by calling 800-428-6644
