Durabrand wine cooler

I have an RB-22J1A Durabrand wine cooler. After a power surge, it quit cooling. I disassembled it and discovered it was cooled by a die-electric device. After checking the board with my VOM, I found the board put out the required 12 volts. Although the die electric coil reads continuity on my meter, it does not develop any temperature differential upon energizing. I probable need a new die electric device, but am having trouble finding this part. Can you help??

    Did you manage to solve your problem? Mine is doing the same thing, I suspect there is an issue with one of the capacitors on the board. Compufixit, please do let me know how you made out. Thanks shellinbox at gmail dot com.

I bought 2 of these wine coolers and both of them ****! You would be better off returning it if you can or putting it in the trash.Both of mine did not keep them cool. At first they worked for about a day and then they stopped. They refrigerate around 70 to 76 degrees and stay there.

Why is my wine cooler not cooling?


quite likely it needs a recharge of the gas they use as a refrigerant

My dual zone wine cooler stopped cooling. Power is good and fan is working.


Fan is wired separately from the cooling unit. you may have a wire corrosion issue. take put the shelves, disassemble the back of the unit from the inside and observe the wiring to see if there are broken or corroded wires/connections. R/R if necessary.

Power surge caused wine cooler to quit cooling


Power surges, spike and brown-outs are a nemesis to small refrigeration units. The capacitor for the compressor likey was affected and possibly the start components in general, especially if the unit was operating when the surge occured.

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

Wine Cooler not Cooling


I think the compressor of the cooling refrigerator is not working. Otherwise the refrigerant gas has escaped from any leakage. Please check two above mentioned things. Gautam Kr. mandal, Durgapur

Wine Enthusiast 16-bottle thermoelectric wine refrigerator DEAD


usually bad power supply, if the cooling fan isn't running either. These are horribly inefficient coolers that use a lot of power to accomplish little cooling. The power supplies are quite notorious to burn up.

If your supply is 12vdc output, you might be able to replace it with a supply from radio shack. dont use a battery charger though.

Durabrand rb-22j1a wine cooler----no power to unit at all after being plugged in, all fuses are good.


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,

Wine cooler doesn't cool properly


Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.
