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).

Bottles in candy wine cooler ccv 150bl are not cold enough even with thermostat is turned to cold is there any way to solve this


Check the condenser is clean, and the inside not iced up. Is there a fan inside? Check all is operating normally. When you say it is not cold enough, what temperature are you trying to reach? For keeping / storing wine, 8 to 10 c should be fine. For chilling before drinking, take the wine to a domestic fridge to get it to 4c

Hi My Kelvinator Beverage Cooler fridge has packed up due to power surge. If possible please could you email me a quotation as i need to purchase another one. Description: 1 door which is glass and its...


Hi.

The price depends on the model and on the internal volume. Here a UK seller: Commercial Beverage Coolers & Commercial Bottle Coolers. Here a SA distributor of beverage coolers. The choice includes Kelvinator.

About the fault. If the problem happened after a power surge it is often possible to repair the cooler replacing the starter relay mounted on top of the compressor. The part is not expensive. Call the Kelvinator number listed on the owner manual to know more about the possible repair or to purchase the part.

Regards.

Hi Rich

Sounds like it needs a new thermostat.
If you are competent with electrics its a fairly easy repair, only 2 wires and the ground.
See your local fridge wholesaler and ask for a thermostat for a bottle cooler. They should be able tpo supply one.

Switch off and unplug before starting work

Knob generally pulls off or may have a small screw under the knob cap, then find how the casing is fixed, remove the casing the thermostat is fixed either with 2 screws or 1 center knut, be careful when removing the capilliary (looks like a thick silver wire) don't damage it you really will not like the smell.

Replace exactly as removed, takes lots of care and patience, use your cellphone to take images for reference if your not certain.

Hope this helps

Why is there water in the bottom of my wine cooler


cos you have condensation inside due to the fact that it is not frost free OR you have a seal leak.....OR the door is constantly open and closed (my beer fridge is like that.....)

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

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.
