Question about Oster 12-Bottle Wine Cellar - Black

1 Answer

Can't find the fuse

I have the same problem. Bought this wine cooler for Christmas from Best Buy. It died in August. I have contacted the company and been authorized to mail them the cord, original receipt and other information and get a full refund. Not sure that includes taxes or the cost of mailing back the cord, but I would rather fix it if I can. I see no shrink wrap when I look inside the back panel. I see the red and green lit pieces, when it is plugged in. Where is the fuse that needs to be replaced, and how hard is it to do. I have fixed our dryer, microwave and other household appliances, though I haven't soldered anything yet. Please help me locate the fuse. Is it on the white plastic panel full of electrical looking stuff? Where is it in relation to those red and green lit items? I guess whoever built this thing blew it for them to offer full refund with no hesitation!
Thanks,
Wendy

Welcome to Fix ya,
You said, You have the same problem. Bought this wine cooler for Christmas from Best Buy. It died in August. I have contacted the company and been authorized to mail them the cord, original receipt and other information and get a full refund. Not sure that includes taxes or the cost of mailing back the cord, but I would rather fix it if I can.

Wendy,
They have many,many problems with this defective wine cooler as so they dropped this model!
You do not want it even if you can fix it!.
That model is an accident waiting to happen.
Take their refund and trash the unit!
This just saved your house and family!!!!!!!!!!!!
God Bless you.

Haier makes a great cooler that my customers all ask for!

Thank You for using Fixya, Huuum

E1 error code LFWC38F6LS


Good Morning Chris,

I see that you are receiving an E1 error code on your wine cooler, model# LFWC38F6LS, even though your wine cooler is still working. This could possibly be a false error code, caused by a miscommunication between the different control boards inside your appliance. I suggest resetting it by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. If when you bring power back to your wine cooler, you are still receiving the E1 error code, I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The refrigerator just stopped working. After looking at some complaint boards on the ewb it could very well be the compressor


compressors work for a long time the first device to check is the thermostat this is the most common fault in fridge units that are not turning on ( kicking in )

Don't cool-no refund/satisfaction from Oster.


Ok, fist problem was unit quit working..if it quit cooling yet lights still worked inside and still had power readings on door is not power coord. If the unit stoped cooling is probably fuse and there are two of them in back of unit. One fuse clearly can be seen, the other is coated with a black shrink fit coating and is not well seen. This second fuse is the problem, you will need to replace it. I have same unit and this is what I had to do to get it cooling again.

blown fuse in back panel, there are two of them, one you can see, one is in black shrink rap, this is probably problem fuse. It was on my unit and had to cut away the shrink rap and solder in new fuse. Found the problem fuse in top left of panel in back of unit, hope this helps.

No response from company on Oster 12 bottle wine refrigerator


just replace the 5amp fuse on circuit board with a 6.3amp. tada!
use an exacto knife to remove the shrink wrap on both ends of old fuse. heat ends with a soldering iron and pull away old fuse. solder new 20mm in line fuse holder from radio shack to both poles insert 6.3amp fuse and done. at least mine works again! $6.00 total cost!

You must remove the fuse from the circuit board to check it. More than likely it's blown. A continuity test while in the circuit will always show the fuse as being good due to feedback through the circuitry.
