Temperature is too Warm/Not Cooling Properly - Wine Cellar

Possible Solutions

Is the door opened often?

Be aware that the wine cellar will warm when this occurs. To keep the wine cellar cool, try to get everything you need out of the wine cellar at once. Keep wine bottles positioned label side up so that they are easy to find, and close the door as soon as the wine is removed.

Is the base grill blocked?

For best performance, do not install the wine cellar behind a cabinet door or block the base grille. Blocking the base grill will prevent proper airflow and could cause the refrigerator not to cool properly.

Has a large amount of food or beverages been added to the wine cellar?

Adding a large amount of food or beverages warms the wine cellar. It can take several hours for the refrigerator temperature to stabilize after adding many warm items.

Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding conditions?

The preset settings should be correct for normal household usage. Setting the controls to a colder setting could cause the wine cellar to run longer or more than needed. Refer “Controls” section from the Owner's Manual.

Is the room temperature hotter than normal?

The motor will run longer under warm conditions. At normal room temperatures, your motor will run about 40% to 80% of the time. Under warmer conditions, expect it to run even more of the time. Do not install in a location where the temperature will fall below 55°F (13°C).
