Question about VinoTemp (VT60GNV) Wine Cooler

Open Question

My wine cooler is blowing hot air I took the back off to vacuum the coils and found that the fan was not cooling the coils. The fan was running intermittent. So I sprayed the shaft with light oil and it still is not spinning successfully. Where can I purchase a new fan to install and is this the reason for the overheating?

You may need to change the cooling system on the unit if the unit is free of dust and still does not cool.

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

Tip

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.

Not colling


Check the back to see if the compressor is running or just really hot. If it is not running it could be a thermostat issue, but if it is hot and not running, that means your compressor has problems and will need to be replaced.

Temperature in both upper and lower zones will not go lower than 50F. Cooler has 3 bottles of wine. Is there away to recharge with coolant/clean fans...? Thank you


The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor.

Before cleaning the condenser coils, unplug the refrigerator to avoid a shock hazard.

Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.

On two recent occasions, my unit has chilled the wines down to about 36 deg.F. It has otherwise run fine for about two years, maintaining about 57 deg. F, consistently. Any idea what would cause such...


wine coolers are usually installed in cabinets or in a bar type situation where the airflow to them becomes more critical. the cooler has two sets of coils that can collect dust and dirt. once the coils clog with dirt, the fans cannot do there jobs by passing air over the coils. This is how the heat transfer takes place. One coil absorbs the heat from the inside of the cooler and the other rejects the heat into your home or outside of the unit. They should be cleaned once a month just like your refrigerator. This will make it run more effeciently. If this is not the problem, check to see if there is a supply register from your central heating and air system close to it. you may be able to get a diverter to push the air away from the cooler

Motor very hot; not cooling


If the compressor is hot it is possible that it is short cycling. Make sure the compressor is running and that the condenser fan motor is running if air cooled.

Compressor runs and gets hot but does not cool unit


This product has been discontinued
i dont think many danby units are parts supported
more likely generic after market parts fitted by air con mechanics do the job
relay first might be a thematic one and an compressor motor fan relay
then check gas pressure
