If possible, set the thermostat higher to see if the beeping stops. If it does, then the beeps are a warning to indicate that cooling is insufficient to maintain the lower temperature to which it was set at. Now why there is insufficient cooling could be due to a number of causes. If you put in a number of bottles of wine, then there would be a period required by the refrigerator to cool everything down again especially if there were few bottles initially and you had put in a large number of relatively warm bottles. If you are having the beeps even after several days then there may be a leak in the door's seals. In this case cleaning the seals with a cloth in soap and water may resolve the sealing problem. This may not help if the seals have become hardened with age. In this case you could try applying a very light coat of grease to help make a better seal. Finally, if the seals appear OK, the problem may be the refrigeration system itself. Make sure any coils or fins in the back or bottom of the unit are cleaned of any dust which may be hampering the removal of heat generated by the refrigeration unit. The coils or fins should be hot to the touch. If they are not, then for a compressor based unit, there may be a leak of the refrigerant. If it is a thermoelectric unit, there may be a problem with its power supply.

Beeping will not stop on wine cooler - red wine side


Beeping usually indicates that something has gone wrong. Probably not cooling properly. The water coming out would indicate that the unit has defrosted. Turn the unit back on again and see if the red side is cooling properly. Some wine fridges have independent evaporators which allows different cooling temps in different parts of the cabinet.

Other than temperature, is there any other reason not to store wines in a regular fridge? I don't mind my wines being slightly cooler and I can always leave them on the counter for 10 minutes bef


Aside from temperature, humidity is a major concern. The low humidity levels can cause the cork to dry/shrink allowing room for both air and other food odors to enter the bottle and tamper with the quality of the wine inside. Wine coolers offer an optimal humidity level of 50-80% needed to keep your wine in good condition.

Fridge makes a fairly loud popping noise at intermittent intervals...otherwise works fine and maintains wine temp as set....makes this noise approx 10-15 times a day....unable to determine any set pattern...


What you are hearing is the new refrigerant going through the system. The old Freon 12 did not make that noise but the new stuff does. Nothing to worry about, it is normal. Thank you for using Fix ya and I hope you found this info helpful.

Received apparent error message "E3" for upper


E3 is a fan error. This is usually caused by poor connection to the fan. Remove all connectors and reinstall assuring tight connection. This should remedy it unless the fan is bad, which is very rare!
