Have had 2...both stopped cooling

osu_buckeye_alum, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had two Haier wine coolers now. The first, I had sent the warranty card in for and it stopped cooling within the 1 year period. It was an absolute nightmare to get Haier to replace it under warranty, but I finally succeeded. I figured maybe I'd just gotten a bad unit the first time, but the second is less than 3 years old and again doesn't work. I will not buy another Haier.

Good while it lasted

  • Summary: I loved this wine cooler until it died on me me. It continues to click like the temperature is trying to adjust, but it is not cooling at all. The LED lights work, but that is about it. I received it as a gift about three years ago. I've been researching getting it repaired, but it seems to be more expensive than the product itself.

Will stop working after 2-3 years

  • Summary: This is a handsome wine cooler and works fine while it works. But like many other owners, mine died after 3 years. The lifespan for the condenser on this Haier product seems to be 2-3 years.

Perfect for storing my wine

R. Buchanan "happyrobot", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this cooler for a couple of months now, and it has worked great. The temperature stays consistent. It's relatively quiet (minor compressor noise when it turns on). And depending on the shapes of the bottle, you can fit more than 30 bottles in - I think I have 38 in there. It is a bit more attractive in real life than in the photo here on the site.

A must for any wine enthusiast!

  • Summary: I've had this bad boy for a year now and I love it. It's been through two moves in that year, and it's still running strong. The cons: First, yes - there's a slight hum and gurgling every now and then. If you have a regular fridge right now, you'll be fine with the noise output of this unit. Second, and this is hardly a con, the AIR temperature (and therefore the temp on the display) does fluctuate sometimes up to 7 degrees.

So far so good

CC, Amazon

  • Summary: I read the other reviews and ended up buying the wine cooler at Lowes, which was cheaper than anywhere else I had looked. It was the last model at Lowes and I bought the one on display for 30% the retail price of $268, so am very happy with the price. The only problem is that it did not come with the key to the lock, not a big concern for me.. But also it did not come with the owner's manual which is a bit of a bummer.

Buy cheaper elsewhere!!

MauiJim, Amazon

  • Summary: I give it 4-stars because so far it seems to work like it says it's supposed to. It's very attractive with the two-tone paneling & smokey glass and is a good size. Though, it's not a wine frige with all the bells & wistles. We did a decent amount of research in advance and this seemed perfect for what we want it for ... the great price didn't hurt, either! As of yet, I have absolutely no complaints about noise; There's virtually none to speak of.

found it at lowes 70.00 cheaper

Colleen Damico, Amazon

  • Summary: I am looking for a wine cooler and chose this one for the reviews and looks. Found it 70.00 less at lowes and told amazon about it. Never received a response. I have bee ordering from them for a long time and they NEVER reply to my questions. I guess they have so much business that they do not care about 1 customer. I do not think I will order from them anymore.

Too difficult to get fixed to make this worth buying!!!

Karen M. Kilty, Amazon
9 November 2004
  • Summary: I recently ordered and received this wine cooler. Unfortunately the cooling unit was broken upon delivery. Following Amazon's recommendation, I directly contacted the manufacturer. They gave me a list of 9 different repair people within my area. I called all 9. None of them service Haier Wine Coolers. Finally, Haier found someone who actually services their product. He recommended replacing the unit. However, this is not as easy as one would hope.

Another - "Good while it lasts"

TonyJF, Amazon
24 August 2004
  • Summary: I've had mine for about 2 years with no complaints at all. Yes, the temperature fluctuates a little too much, and yes it does make a (quiet) gurgling sound, but for the price you can't do better. Until the other day when I noticed that the unit had shut itself off completely. It's plugged in, but it's not getting any power. No LED, no interior light, no gurgling sound. I tested the outlet, and it's fine.
