Why Is My Climadiff Wine Fridge Not Cooling?

At Elite Wine Refrigeration, we are committed to providing high-quality wine fridges to our customers from across the UK and are also dedicated to providing the help and support that we can when things go wrong with your cooler.

Wine storage can be a confusing ordeal for people who are new to the industry, therefore it is important to inform yourself of all of the issues that you may come across when creating your dream wine collections.

Throughout this blog, we will be discussing some of the most common ways in which your Climadiff wine cooler may be malfunctioning.


Climadiff Wine Coolers

Climadiff offers luxury in its highest form, providing state-of-the-art wine coolers designed to fit in with your desired cooling space. With an array of key features, Climadiff wine coolers have come with many benefits - temperature and humidity control included. 

One of the most important things to note when buying your wine coolers, especially if this is your first, is the type of wine cooler that you will purchase.


Types of Climadiff Wine Coolers

There are two different types of wine coolers that you should be aware of when making your purchase, Thermoelectric wine coolers and Compressor wine coolers.

Both of these types of wine cabinets have differences in the ways that they will break down due to their distinct compositions.


Thermoelectric Wine Coolers

Thermoelectric wine coolers are composed of a Peltier plate, a heat sink and a heat pump. This low number of moving parts means that these are much more energy efficient than compressor coolers.

These wine fridges are subject to failure as are any other mechanism, below we have noted some of the most common causes for wine cooling malfunctions.


Fan Failure

One of the most common causes for concern when your Climadiff wine coolers are not cooling properly is that there may be an issue with the fan inside the cooler.

The job of the fan is to keep the wine cabinet cool and stored at the correct temperatures therefore can cause major problems when there is an issue with this component.

If you are looking for home remedies for this issue, perhaps try using a soft cloth to wipe over the fan to ensure that there is no debris or dust that is preventing it from functioning properly, if this does not work then you may require the works of a professional to completely replace this part of the mechanism.

It is important to be incredibly careful with your fan as this could cause permanent damage to your cooler.


The Temperature of The Room

Another issue that may present itself, particularly to people living in hot areas of the world, is the storage temperature of the room in which you place your wine cooler.

Your room temperature can cause your thermoelectric wine cooler to not function as expected, meaning that if you do live in a hot area or plan to store your wine fridge in a very hot room in your house, then it may be best for you to consider buying a compressor wine cooler.


Compressor Wine Coolers

A compressor wine cooler is much less energy efficient than a thermoelectric wine cooler however they do tend to have a far larger capacity for storage.

They have many more moving parts however they have the ability to cool at much lower temperatures than thermoelectric coolers making them excellent for storing every type of wine.


Faulty Condenser Fan

The fan in a compressor wine fridge is used to remove hot air from within the wine cabinet to maintain the correct internal temperature and ensure that your wine is stored at the correct temperature.

If the fan is broken, then this calls for quick repair before the quality of your wine is affected. Like a thermoelectric wine cooler, you can gently clean the fan with a soft cloth before sending it to a professional for repairs.

This is one of the most critical components within your wine refrigerator, making this one of the most vital things to mend before the problem becomes irreparable and renders your wine cooler unusable.


Broken Evaporator

The evaporator is a part unique to the compressor wine coolers and is an essential part too.

Similar to the condenser fan, the most common cause for issues with a defective evaporator is that there is dust or debris that is blocking it from working adequately, therefore, it would be beneficial to wipe over your evaporator with a cloth to ensure that this can return to its original condition.

If this does not work, then a professional fix may be in order, you can contact our support team at 0800 484 0929 where we can give you further advice and recommend the next steps you should take.
