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 have an average lifespan of 9-13 years and can cost anywhere from $150-$2000 to replace. Just because it started making a strange noise or isn’t cooling properly doesn’t mean that it needs replacing.
Various issues can contribute to your wine cooler not operating correctly such as:
- Improper location – in a room that is too warm or receives too much direct sunlight
- Seals on the wine cooler door
- Placement too close to a wall or cabinet not allowing proper ventilation
- Malfunctioning fan
- Defective thermostats
- Faulty compressors
- Faulty condensers
- Clogged drain line
Some of these may sound intimidating, but consulting a wine cooler repair expert is best before spending unnecessary money on a replacement.
