Question about Oster 12-Bottle Wine Cellar - Black
The plastic frame around door cracked which holds the door on broke on the hinge side of the cooler. Do you have parts for this Model No. ?

SOURCE: Fans not working
I had the same problem as other bloggers--temp would not decrease and fan did not run. . . as suggested by others, I replaced the 5A heat-shrink wrapped fuse in upper left corner of circuit board (fuse is covered in black heat shrink wrap and is in a U-shape). I unsoldered the two ends of the fuse on the circuit board (be sure you locate the correct two holes) and then replaced it with two parts from Radio Shack--a 5x20mm Inline Fuse Holder rated at 250V AC, 5A (part # 270-1238) and used a 6.3A slow-blow 250V fuse (part # 270-1066). Now the wine Refir works great!
To replace the part take all the screws off the sheet metal covering on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the circuit board from the plastic holder. I left all the wires plugged in and just unsoldered the fuse with the circuit board still connected--but to solder you will need an extra pair of hands to hold the board while you solder.
If you don't have it, get some silver solder while at Radio Shack and a thin, needle-point soldering iron tip. Radio shack has 30W soldering irons for less than $10. You really don't need soldering experience--just a steady hand. Even if you have none of these parts your total outlay at RadioShack is less than $25 for everything.

You are going to have to replace the display. Easy fix even if you are not very familiar with this system

Testimonial: "Thank you for the quick response!!!!"
Check the lint trap behind your cooler to make sure it isn't clogged... I had the same problem and after vaccuming the lint trap, my cooler started cooling again

The outside rear fan on my wine cellar seized and caused the unit to stop working. I replaced the fan with a close match (12vDC, 0.16amp) and the unit is working again. I also took the time to replace the in-line fuse in the upper left corner of the circuit board, just based on all of the blogs I read about it failing. I did all of this only becasue the unit was past it's warranty (>1year) I think however that the main problem with these wine cellars is that the two fans (one on outside, rear and one inside) are just too weak. They can easily be stalled if the air flow is blocked. Oster should have spent a little more money on a good fan and they might not have all of these dissappointed customers.
