A wine cooler, known as a wine refrigerator, is used to chill or cool your wines at the optimal for both serving and storage. They can range in size from relatively small for half a bottle case to large models that hold multiple boxes. If your wine cooler doesn’t have the right temperature, it can be harmful to the wine inside. However, regardless of the complexity of the problem, consider fixing it before you replace it.
Wine coolers have a standard service life of 9-13 years and cost anywhere from 150-2000$. Just because it’s not cooling properly or started making a strange noise doesn’t mean that it needs replacing.
Various problems can cause your wine cooler not working properly, such as:
- Improper position – in a room that receives too much direct sunlight or just too warm
- Seals aren’t airtight on the unit door
- Positioned too close to the wall or cabinet, not allowing correct ventilation
- Defective fan
- Faulty thermostats
- Defective compressors
- Defective condensers
- Blocked drain line
Some of them may seem frightening, but it’s best to consult a wine refrigerator repair specialist before spending unnecessary money on replacements.
Wine suffers when stored at the wrong temperatures, causing your favorite bottle to become undrinkable. If you notice problems with your wine cooler, it’s essential to address the problem ASAP.
