Have you cleaned the coils? They have a coil brush or you can use a spray bottle with hot water to remove dust and debris.

SOURCE: 8 bottle wine cooler unit won't cool

First, see if the fan is actually blowing anything out of it. YOu may have an obstruction. If not that...Generally, there are three reasons that you won't get cooling:

  • The condenser radiating fins on the unit are dirty which won't allow cooling air flow to liquify refrigerant. Clean them.
  • The unit is frozen up inside because of excessive humidity. Defrost the unit by leaving it off and open for a day.
  • The unit is low on refrigerant. Check this by leaving the unit off for one hour. Locate the pipes coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. If the larger pipe stays frosted up for more than 15 minutes, you need to get the unit charged.

SOURCE: Everstar Beverage/Wine Cooler HDBC36ID not cooling

I returned our unit to Home Depot with relative ease... I think they were all aware there is a problem with these units.

They refunded the full purchase price (even though I was well past the 12-month warranty period). I put the money toward a GE Profile unit that's a little bigger - more expensive, yes; but it works, priceless!

SOURCE: Both zones of the wine

Hello,

Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Also check the condenser coils and clean them if found clogged with dust. Unplug the wine cooler and wait for a couple of hours before plugging it again. If you can hear it running or whining, perhaps the compressor is being overheated. Test various components such as temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer, compressor relay, overload protector and the compressor motor.

Take care.

My dual zone wine cooler stopped cooling. Power is good and fan is working.


Fan is wired separately from the cooling unit. you may have a wire corrosion issue. take put the shelves, disassemble the back of the unit from the inside and observe the wiring to see if there are broken or corroded wires/connections. R/R if necessary.

Doesn't cool


You have troubleshot this thing well. You may have a capacitor problem or starter problem. It will not be design let the unit come on. This is all to protect the expensive compressor.

The alarm in our Franklin Chef model FWC100 wine cooler keeps going off even though everything stays cool so we want to know how to turn off the alarm or cut the wire to the alarm. Thanks.


Love this machine. Works great. Have had it for 6 years. Now it has a problem. The lights and fan work, and the temperature settings work. It behaves like either the freon is low (I don't hear the compressor starting), or whatever causes the compressor to start is crippled... Fuse looks good, nothing visibly burned on the motherboard, haven't opened the bottom.

I Have a Magic Chef MCWC44DZ and it is reading 82 for both zones. When i try to set it back to the normal temps it just locks up and goes back to 82


try to reset your unit unplug it then after a several minutes plug it on then observe unit. check your condensing unit the fan motor if working smoothly or clean your condenser possible dusty. use pressurized water. adjust your thermostat setting.then observe it.

Replacement Parts


Would suggest you try a distributor for this cabinet as sometimes they have more leeway with the supplier. Looking through sites would suggest someone like BeverageFactoy.com may have a route to the spares youre after. Hope this helps.
