Yep...no freon. My thermoelectric disc was blown. Replaced for $6 from Ebay. Let me know if you want step by step instructions with pics.

    Can you send me the step by step instructions with pics and the part number that you ordered?

  • Cherie Juneau Jul 10, 2012

    Would love the step by step instructions and the part you ordered-my CWC-1200 is not cooling-lights and fan are on. Water pooled at bottom before it stopped cooling.

    I need the step by step also. Mine just quit. I had water pooling at the bottom before it quit also.

Try cleaning the coils this is what the fan blows on to cool the condenser if this doesn't work, it might be low on freon, U will have to take it to a A/C,Refrigeration Tech to have it recharged

The cwc-1200 has an electric cooling plate and does not have any freon refrigerant, just FYI.

It is out of warranty if more than a year old.

I can find no service manual. There is a generic video: http://www.newair.com/kb/repair-cooling-kit-wine-cooler/


Replacement parts were sold at Truck Stops. That said, coolers are not known for their longevity. Source: http://www.truck-drivers-money-saving-tips.com/thermoelectric-cooler.html

What to Do When your Wine Cooler Wont Cool

Wine Enthusiast Silent Wine Refrigerator is making a loud buzzing/whirring noise.


Since this unit doesn't use a compressor, the only moving parts are the whisper fans inside of it that circulate the air. One of those fans may be going bad. If you are handy you can remove the back to see if all the fans are working but your best bet is to use the one year warranty and have a qualified techncian figure it out.

My Cuisinart cwc-600 does not cool. It registers 45 degrees but is not cold enough to make white wine palatable. No matter where it is set, it seems to be a room temperature. We live in a small house so...


I have been all through these, and they are not very repair friendly. If it's under 3 years old Call Cuisinart, they will exchange it.

They are solid state cooled using a peltier chip cooler. There are 2 fans in the back cavity, and 1 inside. Remove everything from inside, and set the temp to cooling. Do all 3 fans run? If the inside fan does not run, no cooling. The fans are common 2 wire 12 volt computer fans, and available at computer parts stores that sell PC cases and components. Next is to check the cooler itself. Remove the inside rear cover. There's heatsink under the inside fan. Does it get cold when the fridge is running? If not, the next step you will need to get the back off. The Torx screws are special, but a quick slotting of the screw heads with a dremel or a hacksaw, and a regular screwdriver will remove them. Once off, note the red/black fan wires. Also see if there is a load of dirt in the heat sink. If it's plugged, no cooling. Back to the red/black wires. The fan wires are thin. The peltier cooler is heavier. Set to cool, Check for 12 volts on all 3 pairs of wires. If there's power, the fans run (inside and out) and the inside heat sink does not cool, the peltier chip is bad. It's major surgery to replace the cip, but it can be done, and there are scads of sellers on E-bay selling 60-90 watt peltier coolers that will work. They are standard millimeter square sizes, just match the thickness, 12-15 volts, and wattage (around 60-90).

If you are not getting power on the peltier cooler chip lines, there is a tiny fuse on the lower left of the circuit board. Check it.

These are not servicable from cuisinart. Even the silly screws to change the light bulb are security torx type. Fans are available at computer parts stores. Fuses at electronic supplies. The peltier chip can be had from E-bay. That circuit board is impossible to get. Any other parts are impossible to get to by the way it's built.

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.

My wine cooler stopped cooling and running

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.

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...
