    I have the same problem. The fan stopped working. I got it on Black Friday of 2007 - surely the thing should work loner than 6 months!!!!

  • dameen5086 Jul 11, 2008

    it must be every single one then because I have 3 and all three stopped working. I guess there is no way to fix it.

    Am currently been shifted around because our Christmas gift first had the display quit working and now it is hotter than our house.  I have been directed to Elite Classics for repairs but their office hours are difficult.

    My Oster 12 bottle wine cooler is only 5 months old & fan out so wine temperature is same as house temp.

    No service agent in Houston .. no help on Oster web site .. so I reckon it's "trash time" for Oster.

    Oster 12 bottle wine cooler fan not working & temperature reading fixed on 77 degrees. After looking at Oster web site, I calledthem .. after being shuffled to 4 different phone #'s I finally got a phone number for a service rep (866.866.6283) who asked a few questions about my purchase (Feb.27, 2008 from Best Buy) and then sent me a form to fill out for reimbursement of my purchase price. There was no problem once I finally got the right #. Others with a similar problem may want to follow up on above #.

    My Husband bought the Oster 12 wine chiller for me for an anniversary present in June 08; by July, it wasn't working (cooling).  Same problem as most other emailers it seems.  The light comes on inside, and the light is on in the back, and the temperature seems to read the room temperature, but no fan.  I called the 866# and although it may be a good number to call for service, I have yet been able to get anyone to pick up.  I have constantly been put on hold, and the voicemailbox says it is full.  I am not surprised!  My unit worked only about a month.  What a disappointment.

    SAME THING HAPPENNED- iT'S LESS THAN A YEAR OLD! Bummer! The fan does not keep cool. I thought the black Friday price last year $60.00 was too good to be true- Darn it - it was too good to be true!

I have the same problem. my oster 12 bottle wine cooler was only six months old. the temp of the cooler won't drop. stay at least 80 F and up. Bestbuy don't even carry this product anymore.

My fan went out as well this past month. I got it at Xmas 07 and its broken. I thought i was getting a bargain. I guess not. I'll try that number above and see what happens. I doubt i'll spend money to fix it though.

Well... the best solution is use it for parts and toss the rest in the trash. Go to any web site that sells it and has reviews, read the reviews, and you will see why I came to this conclusion. I got one free on After reading reviews decided it was not worth fixing. She had dropped the one I had, door broke.

My 12 bottle cooler is still cooling OK but it is making a strange loud throbbing or pulsating noise. Is there something I can do to stop this noise?

Mine is too. It\'s the fans they are very cheap and I don\'t think you can find a replacement for them. It\'s the usual stuff made in China that we Americans buy.

Wine cooler displays temperature setting but does not run or cool wine.

It's 1 of 3 things...

A. The fans are not turning. Remove the back, and see if the fans are getting 12 volts, and spinning freely. Remove them and clean off the dust from the heat sink.
B. The Peltier Chip is shot. If the fans run, check for 12 volts on the power connector that's on thelower left of the curcuit board. If there's power, but no cooling, the Peltier is shot. These are available from E-bay for ~$13, but it's a major dissassembly to get it out.
C. If you don't get 12 volts to the fans or the Peltier chip, replace the circuit board.

Wine Enthusiast 16-bottle thermoelectric wine refrigerator DEAD

usually bad power supply, if the cooling fan isn't running either. These are horribly inefficient coolers that use a lot of power to accomplish little cooling. The power supplies are quite notorious to burn up.

If your supply is 12vdc output, you might be able to replace it with a supply from radio shack. dont use a battery charger though.

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.

Chamber wc902 wine cooler which wont set temp

I have the same issue especially when there is a power outage. To reset it, press the preset until "1" appears, then adjust the temperature as low as it will go by repeatedly pressing the temperature "-" button. Usually works.

My Haier 12 wine bottle cooler is dead. No fan or cooling .

Check the 2 fuses,one covered with black heat shrink, next see if internal fan is spinning, inside door, the 2 fans on the back should spin when first plugged in. also the 2 led's red and green should light up...if internal fan doesn't spin then check or replace, use batteries to get it to spin as a test...good luck,safety first...

Does not chill drinks

you wrote that the wine cooler "only cools to 12 degrees minimum" I don't understand the problem?
12 degrees is really cold, in fact its freezing.

If I was abetting man - I would suspect that the fan is polarised, and has been wired incorrectly..

Check that there is nothing obvious in the way of the fan blades..
