Question about Refrigerators
I have a Kenmore 6 bottle thermoelectric wine cooler. It is only 6 months old and it has stopped cooling. Warranty was only good for 3 months, so I'm out of luck. I looked at the parts listing and can only figure it is the computer board or the evaporator. Can someone give me some advice or tell me how to test the PC board?

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.

This cooler uses the Peltier effect = the current passing thru a very special resistance provides the cooling. Because of that there are effectively 2 separate electrical circuits inside your cooler:
1, the mains voltage that powers the Peltier element and the cooling fan - controlled by a relay
2. the low voltage that powers the control board and the display - this is the one that failed in your case.
To fix it you will have to open the front cover , access the board and test it: if it gets power then the board itself has failed; if it doesn't then its the power source and you will have to find out why it failed - probably it was damaged when another component failed and you will have to find out which one before putting a new source in.
It's a relatively complicated job that requires a good experience - if you don't have it then call an certified repairman.

Koldfront makes a great dual zone cooler. I found you one that holds 18 bottles with
space for 6 bottles of white wine and 12 bottles of red.
