Continue reading to find out what you should do in the case of any of the following malfunctions in your wine cooler: leaking water, failure to turn on and not cooling properly.


Wine Fridge is Leaking?

If you have come to find that your Dunavox wine fridge is leaking water, there could be a number of things running through your head - for example, you may think a certain component needs to be replaced or perhaps you need an entirely new cooler. However, this tends to not be the case.

The majority of wine fridges that are found to be leaking water often just have an excess of condensation on the interior of the cabin that the drainpipe is unable to cope with - which has forced liquid out making it leak.

When you come across this leakage scene, you should wipe up all of the water and then take a look around your wine fridge to make sure there is not something physically wrong with any components that may be causing it to leak.

Then, you should make sure that the cooler is being stored at a constant temperature - any temperature fluctuations could be the cause of the excess condensation.

This could also be a result of storing too many bottles of wine in your cooler, if you have exceeded the total bottle capacity as recommended by the manufacturer, you should remove the excess bottles and your wine cooler should remain leak-free!


Wine Fridge Won’t Turn On?

If your wine cooler is not turning on at all, this can be a much more concerning issue initially - however, there are some rather general fixes for you to try before trying to get it completely replaced.

One of the first things you should check is that your wine fridge is receiving ample power from the mains and that the appliance is properly plugged in. This is a lot more common than you might think.

You should also make sure that your thermostat is working properly by using a thermometer inside the cabin to ensure that it reads the same as the screen on the thermostat.

If not, then this will affect the workings of most of the components inside the mechanism such as the compressor, evaporator and condenser.

To fix these issues, all you have to do is make sure that your power cord is not frayed or broken as well as ensure that there are no rips or tears in any of the wirings in the cooler.

For the thermostat, this will likely require an entire replacement of the component or maybe even the cooler itself, which is why this can be one of the more concerning issues when your wine cooler is malfunctioning.


Wine Fridge Isn’t Cooling Properly?

If your Dunavox wine fridge isn’t cooling properly, this can be because of a great number of reasons why depending on the type of wine cooler that you have purchased.

For example, if you have purchased a thermoelectric wine cooler then you will not need to worry about an evaporator as you would in a compressor wine cooler.

If you have a thermoelectric wine fridge, then one of the things you should think about is the temperature of the room in which it has been placed. Having it in too hot of an area can cause issues in the mechanism leading to it not being able to cool the cabin properly.

Compressor cooler issues are much more likely to be caused by a problem with the evaporator fan as it is one of the most integral parts of the cooling system.

To fix this issue, as with any type of fan issue, you can simply check to see if there is any dust or debris blocking the fan from moving freely - if so, you can give it a wipe gently with a soft cloth to remove everything.



To conclude, there are a number of things that could cause your Dunavox wine cooler to stop working whether this is because it is leaking water, not cooling or not turning on at all.
