K-Mart Homemaker brand, 40 bottle wine cooler fridge

Hi there,

We recently purchased one of the above Homemaker fridges off the floor from K-Mart. Unfortunaltely a manual/instruction could not be located for it. We have plugged the fridge on and attempted to set the temperature to -7 degrees C (Champagne) but it seems to be reverting back to 18 degrees C or whatever the current room temperature is. Can anyone help us set the fridge to the correct temperature please? Room temp. wine/champagne NOT appealing!

Cheers,

Sam

    I bought the same Wine Cooler and have exactly the same problem.

    Does anyone know if their is a solution for this? Are we missing something or do we have a faulty cooler.

    My cooler is basically sitting on room temperature. The temperature gauge goes up and down with the temp of the room even though I have set it to 7 degrees celcius (the champagne setting).

    Please help.

    Same problem here. Bought it just before I moved back to Sweden and now its not working. Not really any chance of replacing it so I would like to be able to fix it. Could it be something with the thermostat?

I Have this fridge as well , it stopped working the same as yours. Have had it looked at and been told it is the control board, but there is a problem K Mart do not have spares used to just replace the whole thing, but it has now been deleted from there stock. I did understand that parts had to be available for 7 years after manufacture had stopped.

Are you sure you want frozen champagne? Or do you mean 7 degree C (not minus 7).

I have a igloo 48 bottle wine cooler, and it will show error code "LC" and then you can not adjust the digital temperature or turn the light on. It fridge still feels code? Any ideas would be great!


Could be the temperature sensor. There should be a support number in the manual you can call. Hope you can get it fixed. if not check out my blog for help choosing your next cooler. The Best Wine Coolers The Complete Guide Vino Coolers

Why does My marvel 61WCM wine fridge turn on but right away off again?


First make sure it is not plugged into an extension cord. Low voltage could cause this type of problem. If you have it plugged directly in ,It is probably the compressor or overload relay on the compressor. You can bypass the thermostat to see if it is the problem, by first unplugging the device, then removing the wires from the thermostat, and jumping them together. Then plug it in If it still acts the same way the problem is in the compressor or overload relay mounted on the compressor. Sometimes the relay can be purchased and replaced or a hard start might work solve your problem.

Wine fridge is not getting cold anymore


Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.

Beeping will not stop on wine cooler - red wine side


Beeping usually indicates that something has gone wrong. Probably not cooling properly. The water coming out would indicate that the unit has defrosted. Turn the unit back on again and see if the red side is cooling properly. Some wine fridges have independent evaporators which allows different cooling temps in different parts of the cabinet.

I have barely any space for a wine cooler and need a narrow fridge. Can anyone recommend a narrow cooling fridge for me - preferably something thermoelectric?


Without knowing the amount of space you have to put the cooler, it is difficult to find you one that will fit. What I did though was find a great site with a few brands of slim wine coolers. Look through and maybe they will have something for you.

Other than temperature, is there any other reason not to store wines in a regular fridge? I don't mind my wines being slightly cooler and I can always leave them on the counter for 10 minutes bef


Aside from temperature, humidity is a major concern. The low humidity levels can cause the cork to dry/shrink allowing room for both air and other food odors to enter the bottle and tamper with the quality of the wine inside. Wine coolers offer an optimal humidity level of 50-80% needed to keep your wine in good condition.

Wine cooler Doesn't work


I had the same issue on a Whynter WC28S SNO 28 Bottle Wine Cooler, it even seems like most of the thermoelectric wine coolers, fridges, and such have the same boards by hanny. For cross refference parts I used NTE because Fry's Electronics had them.
Switching transistors - NTE51
1N 4007 - NTE125
Silicon Dual Power Rectifier - NTE6090

Also I have a venotemp wine cooler that has pretty much the same board, with the same plugs for fans, light, control panal, and cooler fan for $45 shipped at their site under replacement parts. Hope this helps people looking for info on this. Also research Switching Power Supply issues for information.

Wine fridge light does not turn off


You may know this already, but for what its worth. There is a small switch on the bottom vent grill for on/off of light. Check there first.....
