My Koolatron Wine Cooler, model WC08 will not turn on. Any ideas what I should check first? I checked the outlet. It is fine.


There has to be an internal breaker that went off or fuse. You may have to remove it from the casing to get to it.

I have a Toyota Tundra. My Koolatron plugs into the cigar lighter but why doesn't it work?


There are any number of variations on the basic plug. Some fit; some do not. You have to decide whether to replace the plug on your Koolatron cooler or the cigar lighter socket in your Tundra. It is possible to purchase aftermarket plug and socket combinations that will resolve both issues.

Do you find water in the bottom of the unit?

Here are some things you can try.

Keep it off the floor a few inches. Use foam or wood blocks or strips.

Keep the inside dry. If ice forms on the cooling unit, it will stop the fan. If this happens, you can defrost it by unplugging it for a short time. Dry the inside good.

Keep the outside fan and heat sink clean. Use the "canned air" and blow off the fan and heat sink.

You can take off the fan covers and remove the fan units ( use care the fans ar easy to damage) Pull the stickers off the back a put a drop of very light lube. Put it all back together and should work.

When you get tired of doing this every month, or the unit fails. Go by a koolatron unit. Better unit, less trouble. Only one moving part. And if it need replacemnt, most truck stops have them.

Koolatron Mini Fridge Overheating


Check the condensor fan behind the fridge which is designed to cool the compressor/gas line by blowing air over the condensor. When this fan motor seizes or stops running, the gas gets very hot and because it is skin cooled too, the outside of the fridge also gets very hot. You can overcome the problem temporarily by putting a standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor and under the fridge untill you can have the problem rectified.
