SOURCE: Our 18 bottle vinotemp cooler quit cooling, the electrical is ok

Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

Power surge caused wine cooler to quit cooling


Power surges, spike and brown-outs are a nemesis to small refrigeration units. The capacitor for the compressor likey was affected and possibly the start components in general, especially if the unit was operating when the surge occured.

Change light in wine cooler


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.

My Koolspace cooler in my VK250 wine fridge quit cooling


I have the same problem with mine and have tried the same things as you have. I took my unit to a air conditioner service place and they said these units are not worth fixing. It would cost about $150 to add a valve so they refill the gas and then try to find out why it is leaking. I am about to order another one which makes me vary mad. My unit is 1.5 years old.
