Wine Cooler Issues and Repairs

A wine cooler, also known as a wine refrigerator, is used to cool or chill your wine at the optimal temperature for both storage and serving. These can range in size from fairly small for a half a case of bottle up to large models that hold multiple cases. If your wine cooler is not at the correct temperature, it can be detrimental to the wine inside. If you notice the unit is not working correctly, it should be repaired quickly. Before you replace that wine cooler, consider repairing your wine cooler issues. 

Wine coolers will last between 9 to 15 years and can cost anywhere from $150-$2000 to replace. Just because it started making a strange noise or isn’t cooling as it should, doesn’t mean that it needs replacing.

Several issues can contribute to your wine cooler not operating accurately, such as:

 
  • Improper position – in a room that is too warm or gets too much direct sunlight
  • Seals on the unit’s door
  • Placing too close to a wall or cabinet not allowing the proper airing
  • Faulty fan
  • Faulty thermostats
  • Faulty compressors
  • Faulty condensers
  • Clogged drain line

Consulting a wine cooler repair specialist is best before spending excessive money on a replacement.
