Koolspace wine cooler

I have a code "AL" which is showing up on the unit and the unit isn't cooling. What does "AL"mean and what do I do about it?

    Same thing happened to me just the other day. Vintage Keeper web-site suggests unscrewing the controler (the little box with the "Set" and up and down arrows on it) and check the plugs on the back. Unplug and plug back in everything and test. My "AL" went away. Unit doesn't cool though. Coolant leak I think.

I have the Vintage Keeper Odyssey. I had the same thing the other day. Unit is 7 years old. Vintage Keeper web-site suggested to unscrew the control box and remove. (The box with the "Set" and Up and Down arrows. Unplug the wiring and sensor on the back and then plug back in. Plug in the unit and text. It took my "AL" away.

Unit doesn't cool very well. A coolant leak may be my problem. I was looking for solutions other than buying a new refrigeration unit.

This probably means something is wrong with your unit. Try to unplug it for a few hours and replug it and see if that will make the "AL" go away <a rel='nofollow' href="http://volwinecellars.net">wine cellar cooling units</a> Good luck!

I am on my second KoolSpace Chillr300 in less than 5 years. Unfortunatley the units are not reliable or well built. My neighbor just purchased one and the compressor failed in less than a week.

Apprentice,

thanks for the information. I had already done this and it shows up again. I'm going to take the unit into my local HVAC dealer and have it checked out. I'm thinking it's probably needing a recharge.

This means alarm. Unplug the unit and plug it in again. The unit will not go into alarm on replug for a number of hours even if the unit goes over 70 degrees. your room must have exceeded that temperature for some reason and triggered the alarm feature which shuts the unit off as a precaution. Check your insulation and operating conditions and make changes or just see if it works after a replug.

Cannot get temperature below 65F. Probably need replacement cooler unit. Model: AZMN HAL Odyssey Approx Size: 9" H x 15.5" W x 14" D. Serial #: AA4-Odyssey-01201-121


I have never heard of a wine cabinet getting below that range? Has this unit every reach temps that low before? I would make sure the unit is breathing, check the condenser and air flow through the unit. If the unit is not choking, and temps can go below 65, than yes you will need to have it serviced. It can be a thermostat issue.
Good Luck

My wine cooler is not reaching the set temperature. It stops at around 73 and the display flashed AL. Any ideas?


check to see if compressor cycles, if so you may have a thermistor problem which is intergrated with control, replace if you can find part. make sure to check evaporator, see if ice is forming if so you have a leak,or dry evap. you have a leak. repar.
hope this helps.

I have a Koolspace AA6 Tuscany free standing unit. Sn 05314-11. Power went out cooling unit will not restart. I get the thermostat to read and fan to turn for a while then goes into high temp alarm mode.


It seems like this cooling unit (AA6, also Grand Cru 800) just doesn't last as per numerous postings that I found when I was trying to find a replacement unit. Best advise seems to be get a higher output unit that will fit application.

do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

My Vintagekeeper Tuscany 220 wine fridge is making lots of unnecessary noise.


Hello, this is a common problem when parts start to wear in the motor. They rattle and clang allover the place, depending on age of fridge you can get the motor replaced and regassed. Or depending on age it may be time to replace the fridge. I hope this is of some use.

Koolspace 600 Problem


You'll need to replace the fan. The original fan bearings wear our after a couple of years. It's pretty simple to drill out the rivets and replace the fan. I suggest you replace all four with ball-bearing fan units.
