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!
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.
I am about to buy the same fridge from K-mart.....expecting it delivered by this weekend. I will take a test and see if I can help you set your temperature right. hopefully I may have a manual thrown in with it.

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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
