Question and Answers

Q:

Wine Cooler frosting up and not getting cold enough VUWC140 Viking Range Corp. Wine cooler

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 
Sorry to hear of the defrost issue you are experiencing with this wine cooler, I know how frustrating these issues are to have occur.

The evaporator in this unit will frost up. This unit has what is called a cycle defrost. In other words the evaporator relies on the off cycle (thermostat satisfied) to defrost. If it runs for long periods of time without cycling off, the frost will get too thick for it to defrost in a short off cycle before it comes back on. Most of the time adjusting the control to a warmer setting will correct this problem. If adjusting the temp to a warmer setting doesn't help, the thermostat could need replacement.
Now, if it's loaded with a lot of wine at once, this condition could also happen because it will take longer to cool it back down. Another possibility is, if only part of the coil is icing, it will indicate a possible low charge. This would be a seal system problem and will require a technician to check it.
If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.
Hope this helps out and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Recently, the wine cooler only gets to be about 50 degrees on setting 7. The condenser is working, the fan is working, and the light is working, but the coils in the back of the fridge have frost build up. I have defrosted the cooler and the frost melts and water collects in the tray in the back, so the hose is clear. The condenser seems to be working too much and the right side of the white cooling unit is not too cold.
