Why is My Wine Cooler Not Cooling?
When your wine cooler fails to cool as it should, several factors could be at play.
Here's a list of troubleshooting steps you can try before seeking professional help:
- Check the Temperature Setting. Ensure the thermostat is set to the desired temperature and hasn't been accidentally adjusted.
- Clean the Coils. Dirty condenser coils can hinder cooling. Clean them with a brush or vacuum.
- Inspect the Door Seal. A faulty door seal can allow warm air inside. Test the seal by inserting a dollar bill; if it slips out easily, the seal may need replacing.
- Clear Ventilation. Ensure there's adequate space around the wine cooler for proper ventilation. Overheating can affect cooling.
- Check for Obstructions. Make sure there are no obstructions blocking the air vents inside the cooler, preventing proper airflow.
If these steps don’t work, give us a call to schedule your wine fridge repair service. You might have an issue with your thermostat, compressor, or condenser fan. Or you might have a refrigerant leak on your hands. Regardless - trust us for speedy, expert service. We offer up-front, honest pricing.
Is it Worth it to Repair My Wine Cooler?
On average, wine coolers should last 9-13 years. If your wine cooler is under the life expectancy and doesn’t need extensive repair, then it is probably more cost-effective to repair it.
If your wine fridge is nearing the end of its life or if the repair costs are more than half the cost of a replacement, replacing it may be the best option. Once we’ve diagnosed the problem, we’ll review our recommendations and repair options with you. That way you can make an informed decision.
