How to troubleshoot common issues with your wine fridge ?

If you’re a wine lover, you’ll likely be less than pleased if your wine fridge suddenly stops working. In this article, the experts in appliance repair at Ateliers G. Paquette in Montreal provides some troubleshooting tips for common issues with wine fridges (also called wine cellars, cabinets and coolers).


Your wine fridge is noisy

There may be no need to worry, as it’s normal for a fridge to make noises. In fact, a wine fridge is made up of numerous components that can produce sound. This includes the low-and high-pressure piping, solenoid valves, electric air heating system and fan motors. To find out if the noise you’re hearing indicates there’s a problem, simply contact us.


Your wine fridge isn’t cold enough

If your wine fridge is unusually warm, you may have mistakenly left the door open the last time you grabbed a bottle. Alternatively, the settings may need to be adjusted, in which case you should refer to your user’s guide for more information.


If your fridge still isn’t cold enough, you’ll need to inspect the various parts of your appliance separately. The compressor, compressor cooling fan and evaporator fan will all need to be checked. Our experienced technicians are available and happy help perform this inspection.


There’s frost at the back of the fridge

While it’s normal for a thin layer of frost to form on the back wall of certain wine fridges, a significant buildup of frost is a problem. If you’re dealing with frost issues,start by ensuring that the door of your fridge remains well closed at all times. If the problem persists, check the door seal for cracks.


Is the source of the problem still eluding you?If so, the buildup of frost may be pointing to an issue with the compressor, piping or refrigeration system. If this is the case, you’ll need one of our technicians to take a look.
