Re: my wine cooler does not cool
The fuse is one problem. The other is the fan motor is dead. If you can check voltage you'll find 2-7 volts at the CN red plug on the circuit board. Or power up the fan with batteries. If fan doesn't spin then you have the solution...Safety first unplug...

It is important to keep the wine cool and in
stable temperature that doesn't fluctuate very often. Bright tart white wine:
48-52 degrees; sparkling wine: 50-55 degrees and rich white wines: 58-62
It's between 55 and 65 degrees fahrenheit. If you're storing a lighter red wine, you'd want to keep it on the lower end (55 degrees). And for the darker (deep) red, you'd want to keep it on the higher end (65 degrees). All white wines should be on the lower end, and below. You can drop down to 50 degrees if you'd like. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
Not sure, but did you clean the filter in the back? Ours has that, and the temp starts creeping up every few weeks until I clean it. But we've never been able to get it below 58 or so, and in the last year, not below 60. I think that's just the nature of this type of cooling. Our house is also at 80. But, can keep it at 60 with the above cleaning.
I suspect the cooler can only actually regulate one of those temperatures and the other one just drags along behind. Perhaps the weather is now warmer and the cooler has to keep the motor on longer to keep cool. The unregulated bottom temperature ends up cooler as a consequence.
Either that or the opposite effect is doing it.
The answer might be to find a 61 degree place in your house to keep the reds.
You can fix this for $5. You can confirm the problem by taking the back off and see of the red and green led on the circuit board are flashing. They will be steady if the board is ok. The fan is usually just rocking too like it is trying to start. The part is a capacitor and is $5, but you will need to be able to remove and solder this part on the circuit board. If you need the part, just let me know. David
You said, your Oster wine refrig won't lower its temperature below 76 degrees. I
have it for about 5 months, and it worked fine all this time with a
setting of 50 degrees. Now it refuses to lower its temp. It reverts
back to 76 everytime. Can someone give me any ideas about what is
wrong? FYI Mine did not come with an owner's manual. Sounds like the Thermostat is bad. http://www.oster.com/CustService.aspx?content=manual The tel # in your Oster Manual is a recording and will not help you! But New appliances are under Factory warranty and are fixed or replaced no cost to the customer!you are under
I bought 2 of these wine coolers and both of them ****! You would be better off returning it if you can or putting it in the trash.Both of mine did not keep them cool. At first they worked for about a day and then they stopped. They refrigerate around 70 to 76 degrees and stay there.
