    my oster 12 bottle wine chiller has stopped cooling as well. we have had it two weeks. it was set at 53 and was holding at 54... i left for an hour... and it had gone up to 65. investigation of the situation indicated that the fan had stopped running.

    I got my Oster wine cooler for my birthday in February, 2008. I noticed last week that the temp. went up to 70 degrees and now is up to 80 and has not come down. It's only 7 months old and it's clear the fan stopped working. Sounds like a lot of other people are having the same problem with this product.

    Our's did the same thing. I contacted warranty & followed their instructions. It's been months & no refund. I called the # on my warranty card & it isn't a working number now. Does anyone have a different # than 866-866-6283? What a rip off.

    After about a couple months the temperature display lights started going out one by one. Then after 10 months or so the fan died on me too. It sounds like the Oster wine coolers have a lot of problems, that's why they are so cheap. I went to Best Buy and the manager gave me 10% off on a Vinotemp. 200 bucks, but you get what you pay for.

Do not bother trying to contact the company which made the unit they are being indigted on fraud. The good thing is that there is a simple solution to your problems. Replace the small fuse under the electric shrink wrap. This fuse is located near the red and green led lights on the electronic panel in the back of the unit. Replace with a 6.3 or 7 amp 250 volt fuse 3 x20mm , which can be found at Radio Shack. You will need to know how to solder in order to replace. All total cost to replace the fuse is about $3.00 and a half an hours time. The unit works great now, I paid another $3.00 to put in an inline fuse holder for the future when this fuse blows, if it does.

My power supply keep on blowing fuse. I tried replacing fuse twice and immediately blown when plugin power. What could be the reason?


A dead short is more than likely. Potentially a shorted out compressor or wire pinched or a bad control board. I'd check the compressor terminals to ground, any motors to ground. With and without the wires hooked up to them. If the compressor or fan motors are grounded out it could cause that symptom. If you test them with the wires hooked up it will tell you if the wiring is shorted to ground.

Cooling unit is running, but interior is not cool.


How long have you had this unit and did it quit suddenly or did it fail intermittently. Do you mean running where you can hear the fan and the light comes on when you open the wine cellar door? If so, I would suspect the starting relay failure on your cooler which should be very easy to replace. There should be a wiring diragram on the back of your unit somewhere and could be labeled (RT). Your compressor would be the last thing I would suspect.

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.

Kitchenaid Wine Cellar-model # KUWS2246EBLO Power on switch does not turn on cooling compressor. Lite will come on.


Try tapping on the thermostat it is probably sticking.
If it comes on then you will need to replace the thermostat.
Check the start relay on the compressor.
Check the fan motor on the compressor is it running?
Clean lint from underneath on the condensing coil.

Haier Dual Zone Wine Chiller - One Fan wont run


I have the same problem. When I first discovered this, both fans had stopped working and the temp for both zones was over 80. So much for the wine that had been stored there. After leaving the unit unplugged for a few days, the fan for the lower section started working again but the upper fan is still overheating. Haier customer service says too bad, so sad (I discovered this problem in the 13th month of ownership). I'm sure it is not worthwhile to fix this so it is going out with the trash and I'll look for a different brand for the next wine cellar that I purchase. Any ideas?
