Summary: Because I failed to keep the cooling system of my 5 year old Haier 12 Bottle Cellar it over heated, burning up the compressor. This new model is not as quiet and will not hold chanpagne bottles. This cooler is worht the money but I prefer my older model. Keep your old cooler clean!!
Summary: I purchased this to replace a 4 year old 12 bottle Haier wine cellar. My fault the former cooler lasted only four years as I neglected to clean the cooling fan intake. As a result the compressor over heated. If you want your cooler to last get in the habit of removing the dust from the fan intake at least twice a year. My new cellar will not accomadate champagne bottles and this is a big negative for me.
Summary: The wine cooler works great and is quiet. I had the previous model of Haier wine cooler and whenever the power blinked, the wine cooler shut off and would not turn back on until you reset it. Haier would not correct the problem. This one just goes back on automatically as it should. The price and delivery from Walmart was great!
