Question about Vintage Keeper Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Vintage Keeper Odyssey wine cellar 250 bought new on 10/2002. Though the cooling fins have been kept clean, the cooling unit can only reach the 57 degree set point on cool nights and during the day can only reach 66 degrees. Given the age of the cooling unit, could it be low on refrigerant and if so is it advisable to have it recharged or is it better to replace it ?

    The solution seems reasonable to me and will take the advice on having the refrigerant checked.

Have it checked on how much refrigerant yo have left before deciding on the purchase of a new unit or recharging it. The cost may be far and from there you can decide on which is more practical. It may also just be a faulty thermostat.

Cannot get temperature below 65F. Probably need replacement cooler unit. Model: AZMN HAL Odyssey Approx Size: 9" H x 15.5" W x 14" D. Serial #: AA4-Odyssey-01201-121


I have never heard of a wine cabinet getting below that range? Has this unit every reach temps that low before? I would make sure the unit is breathing, check the condenser and air flow through the unit. If the unit is not choking, and temps can go below 65, than yes you will need to have it serviced. It can be a thermostat issue.
Good Luck

Cooling unit is running, but interior is not cool.


How long have you had this unit and did it quit suddenly or did it fail intermittently. Do you mean running where you can hear the fan and the light comes on when you open the wine cellar door? If so, I would suspect the starting relay failure on your cooler which should be very easy to replace. There should be a wiring diragram on the back of your unit somewhere and could be labeled (RT). Your compressor would be the last thing I would suspect.

We are looking at purchasing a used vintage keeper. The owner turned it on and it was cooling down to 55 and then it shut off. There are no instruction booklets so we had to guess as to how to restart it....


if the unit was left unused for 4 years chances are its way passed its sell by date,but if you switch it on and it works/was cheap to buy,then what the hell......

My kool space wine cellar is not holding temperature


has the cellar ever worked right in your home? These small refrigeration units basically move heat from a conditioned space to another space that is not objectionable such as your home where your central air system then moves the btu's. This being said, the cellar has a ventilation system that must pull in room air and push out the box air. these vents must be clean and clear of obstrucions to ensure proper performance by the equipment

Koolspace 600 Problem


You'll need to replace the fan. The original fan bearings wear our after a couple of years. It's pretty simple to drill out the rivets and replace the fan. I suggest you replace all four with ball-bearing fan units.

Koolspace wine cooler


I have the Vintage Keeper Odyssey. I had the same thing the other day. Unit is 7 years old. Vintage Keeper web-site suggested to unscrew the control box and remove. (The box with the "Set" and Up and Down arrows. Unplug the wiring and sensor on the back and then plug back in. Plug in the unit and text. It took my "AL" away.

Unit doesn't cool very well. A coolant leak may be my problem. I was looking for solutions other than buying a new refrigeration unit.
