In their essence, Sub-Zero wine coolers employ the same principles of refrigeration as other Sub-Zero appliances. It is the unique internal layout and the particular temperature settings that really matter since even a small temperature deviation can become a problem when it comes to wine storage.Here are some common problems we see with Sub Zero Wine Coolers:
- Wine cooler temperature control issues
- Wine cooler won’t turn on
- Door won’t close or seal properly
- Appliance is running hot
- Noisy operation
So, what do you do if your wine cooler stops cooling? First, keep in mind that it may take some time for your appliance to reach the required temperature. Wine coolers are oriented for long-term energy-efficient storage and it may take up to 24 hours to reach the target temperature for them after you plug in your new appliance.Compressor Not Working
If you power on your wine cooler and the controls seem responsive, yet it fails to cool its content efficiently you might have a problem with a malfunctioning compressor. While the sealed system can be difficult to diagnose, a Freon leak is one of the most common problems. We recommend setting up an appointment with us if you believe you have a problem with your compressor or the sealed system.
Is the Door Closed Firmly?
No matter how efficient your wine cooler’s compressor is, it won’t be able to maintain the temperature if there is an air leak. Make sure that the refrigerator door is closing snugly. There should be no cracks or other visible damage on the door seal. We do recommend replacing the seal in case you find out that it’s leaking the cool air since this issue can significantly reduce the efficiency of your appliance.Clean the Condenser
The condenser is located in the bottom rear side of your appliance. Despite it may be difficult to reach that area, it is strongly recommended dusting the condenser coil every 3 to 6 months.
