Re: Marvel Cooler/Fridge Light Not Working
It sounds like the bulb is not getting power. There is a door switch that turns it off when the door closes...this may be stuck. There is usually an optional (depending on age) ON/OFF switch that overrides the light to be on full time. If the light will also not turn on with that switch then there must be a disconnected or broken wire either going to the light switches or going to the light socket from the switches. I hope this helps.

First make sure it is not plugged into an extension cord. Low voltage could cause this type of problem. If you have it plugged directly in ,It is probably the compressor or overload relay on the compressor. You can bypass the thermostat to see if it is the problem, by first unplugging the device, then removing the wires from the thermostat, and jumping them together. Then plug it in If it still acts the same way the problem is in the compressor or overload relay mounted on the compressor. Sometimes the relay can be purchased and replaced or a hard start might work solve your problem.
Without knowing the amount of space you have to put the
cooler, it is difficult to find you one that will fit. What I did though was find a great site with
a few brands of slim wine coolers. Look
through and maybe they will have something for you.
its the ptc relay go to repairclinic.com...type in model #...its a cheap and easy fix.if you see what the part looks like on line youll find it on cooler.should be left of compressor behind black plastic cover with 1 screw
The 3BAR cooler has a 10-inch light bar that has multiple indicasent elements and is plugged in to the ceiling receptacle via a three pin plug. If you have a resistance/continuity tester you can unplug the light and check it for continuity across the two outer pins. (the center is ground). You can can also loosen the two screws that it the assemlby to the ceiling, remove the assembly and carefully test it with power. Most likely, it has burnt out. If the light checks good, then power must not be reaching the recepticle. Power is routed to the recepticle directly from the power cord via the door switch (when open) or from the ON/OFF rocker switch in the toe-kick. I hope this helps.
There is also a light override ON/OFF button next to the door switch to allow the light to remain on for display setups. Make sure that switch is off. If it is off, then your door switch must be shorted out and should be replaced.
Took everything out and got on my back with flashlight to find a tiny screw holding lens in place. Found that a little night light fit and worked fine. Wish the manual had a simple direction to fix the problem.
