    Exactly the same problem and for us the second fix, too! First time was about 18 months after installation and now today. Unit was installed in May 2003.

My wine cooler.


Check the outlet with an appliance known to work. Turn the thermostat control fully both ways. If there is power, then you need a technician or a new one.

best,

Wine cooler just stopped working. light will come


Try disconnecting all power to the unit for about 10 mins, and turn it back on to see if the compressor will kick in. Also check your temp settings and make sure they are properly set. If that doesnt work, you might have a dead compressor which a tech can look at and verify.

Describe your uline wine cooler Problem ULINE WC2015: Light comes on but unit won't run. Cleaned as discussed in owners manual. Need help!


OK if you have a 20 series and you have a light and no fan or compressor then you need a thermostat. This will have 2 wires to it and if you bypass the thermostat the unit should run. If it does then replace the thermostat

How do you use a breville wc15xl wine chiller


HOW TO USE

First you place the Wine Cooler on a flat, dry surface, making sure that the timer is in the "off" position.

Remove the chill cells from the freezer and place around the inside of the cooler.

Thirdly, place the bottle inside the cooler and then pour cold tap water inside, until it just covers the top of the chill cells.

You can then plug the unit in, or if it has batteries you don't need to.

Finally, you set the control dial to the desired time. The following are recommendations for different types of beverages:

Sparkling Wine, Champagne and Dessert Wine.....9 minutes

Dry Wines, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling.....6 minutes

Chardonnay, Rose'....5 minutes

Light Red Wines, Pinot Noir....3.8 minutes

Full Bodied Reds, Shiraz, Grenache, Cab Sauvignon, Merlot....3 minutes


If you choose to chill a beverage without the timer, you just turn the control to the left and when you are done you turn it to the off position.

In addition to wine, the cooler can also chill beer and soft drinks. The only limitation is that the bottle diameter can be no more than 3.75 inches.

Should you wish to chill two or more consecutive bottles, the cells will remain cold enough for you to to do so.

While not in use, the cooler can also be used on the table with ice to keep your beverages cold (much like a regular ice bucket).

The power cord is removable, which makes for an easy clean-up.

The unit comes with a manufacturer's One-Year Limited Warranty.

Water seeping out the bottom of my wine cooler


there should be a drain pan that you will periodically remove. Condensate (water) is a normal byproduct of all refrigeration devices. Also look for a drain fitting that you can run to a waste line.

Too warm


somehow the freon has leaked out, verified by compressor running long times without stopping.
