When your wine cooler stops working, you risk losing hundreds if not thousands depending on how many wine bottles you’re storing.

When Do You Need Wine Storage Repair Service?
There are a variety of common wine storage issues that can warrant a service call and repair for your wine cooler. Here’s a list of some of the most common reasons you might need a wine storage appliance repair.
- Wine Cooler is too Warm – The problem could rest in the thermostat, condenser, evaporator fan, or compressor. You want to repair these problems quickly because they can affect the aging and quality of your wine.
- Wine Storage cooler is unreliable – Sometimes the cooling system fails to turn on when you need it most. This failure could be the result of a faulty fuse or even a power cord that is broken. Other common reasons for this problem include a bad condenser fan that needs to be replaced.
- Wine Cooler evaporator coil is frozen – Without an evaporator that works, your cooler is never going to get to the appropriate temperature. The process of fixing the unit could be as simple as getting ice and other debris off the coil, but sometimes the problem is worse.
- Wine Cooler is leaking water – If the wine cooler leaks only once, someone might have left the door open. Otherwise, you might have a problem with a hose or sealing around the door. Fortunately, these are problems a technician can address easily.
- Wine Storage is making strange noises – If you have a smaller cooler or cellar refrigerator, you might hear strange sounds if the placement is off or if different parts are loose, creating a vibration. Otherwise, you might have a problem with ventilation. The cooler may need to be pulled away from a wall or other furniture.
