I found the solution to my case. The continuous compressor running problem started a few days after we moved the unit from a hardwood floor to a room where it is on a carpet. For some reason, this caused some sort of freeze up. I solved the issue by raising the unit about 1/2" using a couple of boards I had and placing them under the legs. Now I need to figure out a bit more visually pleasing solution, but raising it up cured my freezing problem.

SOURCE: thermal coupling in wine chiller

No, I would not recommend putting water into the chill chamber since if there is a "gap" hole in this compartment, the water could get inside the unit's electronics etc.. which could at the very least short the unit and at worst electrocute you as you take the bottle out/touch the unit. That's the problem with this or any other Peltier/thermoelelectric type of chiller. They are only good for maintaining an ALREADY cold bottle's temperature, not for chilling it rapidly. There is no good or inexpensive way to get better chilling from these types of units. It's the law of themodynamics and heat transfer. Water is the best/safest/most inexpensive medium to use, not chilled air or even super cold air. Cold air or even super cold air just does not match the chilling potential of a liquid like water. The reason why 50F air is no problem, for you to be out in for hours, but 50F water you'll get hypothermia in 20-30 mins.

The best unit for chilling a warm wine bottle is the cooper cooler. Go to www.coopercooler.com. It uses ice and water and sprays the ice cold water over the bottle while spinning it to chill it quickly. This unit is great since it can also chill single serve drinks like beer/soda etc so is more versatile than the other chillers. Cheapest is about $59 which is much less than the waring at ~$100

I have an older model Avanti Wine Chiller that began making a very loud almost-grinding noise last night. It continues to cool but I have turned it off due to the deafening sound. Any ideas?


first off determine where the noise is coming from what area? I suspect u may have a fan or condenser fan problem restricted , impeded or going out?

Has anyone replaced a compressor relay on this chiller? Looks like it is not designed for replacement, but if it can be done with a generic relay I would like to know. Thanks.


The cost of one of those compressors is over $100. When you factor in tax and labor you're better off junking it. Its also possible you have a compressorless cooler called Peltier.

Wine cooler does not stay cool


Do only if you are properly trained on live circuits.. Do at your own risk. Check the compressor's capacitor and the relay. Is the compressor getting juice?

Hi, I have a WCR524SDZD wine chiller and the fan has started to make noises, and also the temperatures seem to not drop to the temperatures we expect. Where can I get a new fan? or parts for this...


your unit uses a generic fan motor that a lot of refrigerators ect.. use. If you take the fan to a local shop that sells refigerators they will match up one for you. Avanti's phone number is 1 800 220 5570. good luck

Oil appears to be leaking from my Avanti Wine Chiller


Is it cooling ok?Where did you find the oil? If is not cooling and you see an oil spot inside or outside where the compresor is that means there's a refrigerant leak.
