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!

    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 am in Perth WA and I need a fan belt for my washing machine as it snapped my washing machine is a Homemaker HMWM8000. I would like to know where I can purchase the belt and the price. Thank you,

Hi, I have the same problem. I rang KMart who advised they don't stock washing machines anymore but gave me the manufacturer's number which is 1300 366 155. I rang them and they said it is probably a generic belt which you could purchase from most repair shops, but you can purchase them through Homemaker. They were going to charge me $20 and it would take 7-10 working days to deliver. I am trying to source locally (Albury, NSW) as it may be cheaper if it's generic.
Hope this helps.
