Question about Cuisinart CWC1600 Wine Cooler
The hayni made in china internal power supply has faulty tranformers on it that fail within anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Solution. Remove the back panel, take out the internal power supply and replace it with another compatible AC 120v to 12v DC 5amp power supply. Often laptop power adapters will work. I used this one: 60w-12v-5A-AC-DC-Power-Adapter from the website mini-box and it only cost 15 dollars. The peltier pad draws upwards of 5amps, but the rest of the system is super lower power. Now my wine cooler is more energy efficient and and will run for at least 5-10 years. This power supply replacement takes about 20 minutes. You need: philips screw driver, wire cutter and stripper, two 16 guage wire nuts. That's it.

The picture does not show how the laptop output is to be connected. I only see the white cable with two wires. Can you please add another pic on this? Why do we need a change to a computer fan? Will the existing fan not work?

Thanks, Trick Master PC, for your solution of using a laptop power supply in place of the stock power supply (searched everywhere for it and couldn't find). I purchased from Amazon a 12V 5A laptop cord for $7.03 delivered the next day with Prime. I wired it in, swapped the rear cooling fan with one from an old computer and I am back in business. Works great!
