20 Most Recent Breville WC15XL Compact Wine Cooler Questions & Answers


HOW TO USE

First you place the Wine Cooler on a flat, dry surface, making sure that the timer is in the "off" position.

Remove the chill cells from the freezer and place around the inside of the cooler.

Thirdly, place the bottle inside the cooler and then pour cold tap water inside, until it just covers the top of the chill cells.

You can then plug the unit in, or if it has batteries you don't need to.

Finally, you set the control dial to the desired time. The following are recommendations for different types of beverages:

Sparkling Wine, Champagne and Dessert Wine.....9 minutes

Dry Wines, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling.....6 minutes

Chardonnay, Rose'....5 minutes

Light Red Wines, Pinot Noir....3.8 minutes

Full Bodied Reds, Shiraz, Grenache, Cab Sauvignon, Merlot....3 minutes


If you choose to chill a beverage without the timer, you just turn the control to the left and when you are done you turn it to the off position.

In addition to wine, the cooler can also chill beer and soft drinks. The only limitation is that the bottle diameter can be no more than 3.75 inches.

Should you wish to chill two or more consecutive bottles, the cells will remain cold enough for you to to do so.

While not in use, the cooler can also be used on the table with ice to keep your beverages cold (much like a regular ice bucket).

The power cord is removable, which makes for an easy clean-up.

The unit comes with a manufacturer's One-Year Limited Warranty.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a washing machine hookup. Most washing machines hookups have two hose bibbs (faucets that a hose can screw on to), one for hot and one for cold. Refrigerators have a 1/4 inch flexible line, either copper or plastic. So, I'm assuming that you mean you have a hose bibb for the water supply and you want to connect it to the quarter inch line on the fridge.

The best approach would be to remove the hose bibb and connect to the line that is feeding it. Assuming that it is a 1/2" rigid copper pipe you can get adaptors at a plumbing store or at a store like Home Depot to step it down to 1/4", then connect to the fridge line with a compression fitting. If your hose bibb is threaded, you would start at the wall with the same size threaded connection and see what your local store has available in the line of adaptors. Best would be if you can find a single adaptor that will go from 1/2" to 1/4". You may need one to go from 1/2" to 3/8" and another to go from 3/8" to 1/4".

A second approach that would be a jury rig type of thing (say if you can't get the hose bibb off) would be to get a hose end connector to attach to the faucet and step it down with clamps and tubing. Use adaptors that fit inside tubing of successively smaller sizes (2 steps will probably do it) ending with 1/4" plastic that you can attach to your fridge with a compression union. (they make 3/8" to 1/4" compression unions, so you would only need to end with a 3/8 inch tube making the connection with the adaptor/union.

Modify this according to what you have in the house (say if you have 5/8" water lines instead of 1/2").

If I'm not understanding your problem correctly, please clarify.

You will have to defrost the freezer and sponge the water out. Not a fun job by any means.

There is no drain because the manufacturer did not want to have water leaking onto the floor.

If your refrigerator has an in-door ice dispenser, the solenoid valve is defective and will have to be replaced.

send the model number?if the freezer is cold but in fridge the top is warm and the bottom is cold it sounds like you have a bad evaporator fan motor,all it does is cold starts in the freezer at the evaporator coil,and the evap fan blows the cold air into the fridge section,warm air rises so if the fan isn't working the cold air will stay down low and the warm air will stay up on top,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing in the freezer i would have to say the evap fan motor is bad,if the fan is working one of the doors could have been left open and the air ducts froze up or you could have a damper in your model,it's just a door that opens and closes to let the air blow in but send the model number so whoever helps you can look up your fridge,usually the model number for a sxs is in the fridge section open the fridge door look up on the right hand wall up near the ceiling or in the middle of ceiling and there should be a tag with model and serial numbers just send the model number,

Over time, there is the possibility that minerals from the water will build-up in your system.

This is a common cause for leaking water from the taps.

To resolve this issue, you will need:
  • 1/4 cup of bleach
  • 1 or 2 empty water jug (same ones you use for the dispenser)
  • 1 bucket (preferably 6-8 liter capacity)
When you're ready to begin, turn the unit off.

Then, unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet and remove the water bottle.

Dispense water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket in order to remove the remaining water from the reservoirs in the unit. Be careful with the hot water. Then empty the bucket.
.
Next, take the empty water jug and pour the bleach in and then add tap water into the empty bottle about 1/8 full. You want it just a little more than what it will take to fill the reservoir in the unit.

Now you will place that jug onto the dispenser.

Plug the the power cord back into the outlet and turn the unit on.

Allow the solution of bleach and water to fill the reservoirs. Once this solution has filled the reservoirs, wait about 15 minutes.

Then dispense the water from both the hot and cold taps into the bucket to remove all the water from the system. Again be careful with the hot water.

Next, turn the unit off again and unplug the cord and remove the jug.

Now you'll need to rinse the current bleach solution jug, or of you have another spare jug, use that instead.

Refill the jug again with hot tap water about 1/4 full as you want double the amount of water this time compared to the bleach solution. Then place the jug back onto the unit.

While keeping the machine off and unplugged, let the hot water fill the reservoir again and let it sit for about 10 minutes and then dispense all the hot water from both the hot and cold taps into your bucket. Then empty the bucket.

Now remove you can remove the jug and pull the unit away from the wall. You'll then need to place the bucket below the drain spout which should be on the back on the unit.

Remove the cap and plug from the drain spout and let the water drain out of the system. Once the water has drained, reinstall the plug and cap.

Now you can reuse the jug that you originally removed if it was still full, or you can use a brand new jug. Plug the unit back in and power it back on.

This method should have removed all the mineral deposits that was preventing the rubber inside the spout to form a proper seal.

You just have to find where the leak is and then dry it and add silicone. At this time of year, many refrigeration appliances sweat from the high humidity.

Many residential refrigerator / freezers are designed to work at temperature considerably above above freezing. Most modern refrigerator / freezer have a single electric thermostat - located in the fresh food compartment. This lone thermostat will control the compressor to keep the fridge (fresh food) section at the desired temperature (usually between 34 - 38 degrees F). The freezer will get colder regardless of how cold it is already whenever the fridge thermostat turns the compressor on.

Now that you see how the thermostat works, let's look at what happens when the fridge is placed in an unheated space - like a garage. In winter time, the temperature can drop considerably below 38 degrees. If the outdoor temperature remains cold enough, for long enough - it will affect the thermostat in the fridge. The temperature inside the fridge could drop below 38 degrees, preventing the thermostat from telling the compressor to turn on. Meanwhile, the temperature in the freezer compartment slowly rises from the normal -10 to 0 F degrees. It will continue to rise until it is the same temperature as the fresh food compartment or until the thermostat in the fresh food compartment tells the compressor to turn on again. This means the freezer contents will thaw.

If the temperature in the garage is even in the 40 to 50 degree range, the loss of cold in the fridge may not happen often enough to keep the compressor coming on often enough to keep some freezer items frozen solid - such as ice cream. Remember, water freezes at 32 degrees F, other products may require lower temperatures to remain frozen, and could thaw at 28 or other temperature.

Good luck!

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

First thing is to vacuum all the fluff off the condenser coils. always a problem with air flow and high ambient temperatures in the summer. I did mine last week.

Soft ice cream is the best :>) Check the temperature inside the cabinet with a thermometer.

And finally, it that is minus 5 Fahrenheit, it may be too cool. If it is minus 5 on a dial where Zero is the median and there is a plus five as well, the PLUS side makes it colder.
