The line at the back is not cold & I am wondering if the coolent is gone, but there is no leakage now or prior noticed.

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.

Haier Thermoelectric Wine Cooler


This wine cooler hasn't held temperature for months, even though during the winter my living room gets to 58 F at night. I've had it maybe a year.

I took the back off, and 2 of the 3 heat sinks felt cool, which means the thermoelectric pack was just conducting cold out of the cabinet in 2 of 3 cases. The third one felt slightly warm, as it should. I checked that the cool ones had 12 v to them, they did, so they should have been pumping heat out.

I put bowls of ice inside the unit, and when the temperatures got down to the set points, I heard relays click, so I figured the control unit was OK.

I removed one of the TEC modules that was cold on the outside, and taped up the hole with masking tape.

I unplugged the fan from the circuit board and unscrewed that fan assembly from the heat sink.

I then clipped the leads to the TEC unit, cut away the blobs of hot melt glue, and disassembled the cooling module. I took the TEC device and hooked it back up, making sure it had voltage to it. After awhile, both sides just felt slightly warm so I knew it was bad.

Got on line and ordered 4 (to have spares) TEC1-12703 coolers. I have thermal grease. When the parts come, I will re-assemble and should be good to go.

I don't know what blows the TEC devices, they should be very robust. Maybe Haier got a bad bunch of them, I read almost all bad reviews on these wine coolers.

Wine cooler cools but it does not turn on again . need to unplug and plug again ,but in doing so I erase settings thank you


Possible that the error is in the main program controller unit of the coolerr. It might be hanging up due to some errors in the voltage or the sensors.
make sure the connections are tight , check the thermostat settings, reduce to lower level, allow the unit to cool off , unplug for few hours and check again. if not check your program controller unit.

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

After only 3 weeks it no longer cools. I feel we have done everything recommended in booklet. Power is on, light works fine.


This sounds like one of two things. Either the system had a freon leak or it is froze up inside where you can't see it due to not defrosting. A good way to check to see if still has freon in it is to unplug it.. place a fan blowing into the unit for about 2 hours then plug it back in and see if it gets cold. If it gets cold then it is not defrosting. If it does not get cold at all it has a freon leak or a blocked freon flow. In any cause this is a valid warranty repair. Call for service after the fan episode, tell them it is less than a month old and a warranty repair.

Vinotemp VT-60 Condenser won't shut off, unit running way too cold


It might be a sensor or control board problem. Any appliance repair place should be able to help you out with this. Or you can try contacting the manufacturer directly for help or if you need to purchase replacement parts. Otherwise, my cheapest suggestion would be to hook the cooler up to a timer, so you can turn the unit on and off maybe every 20 minutes or so. That should help keep it from causing more harm and then you can monitor the temperature with a thermometer. Hope that helps!
