Ditto- This item just stops working - buy something else
9 September 2012
Summary: I feel lucky that our unit lasted two years before it totally died. I am pretty good at replacing parts, but why bother when the new computer board they send you will just short out again? Too bad, unit looked great and worked good for us while it lasted.
Summary: Simply put, this product is a guranteed defeat. These pieces of crap are intentionally designed to fail shortly after the warranty passes. This company is completely unaware of the term "Customer Service." If getting ripped off or over-paying to rent a wine fridge for a few months sounds good to you, then this is the product for you!!!!!
Summary: Bought a Haier 6 bottle cooler about 15 months ago. It quit shortly thereafter and I exchanged it for a newer model, same size. It worked fine for 5 or 6 months, then one day I found it not working and my wine warm. I contacted Haier and gave them the info I had but could not find the sales receipt. After a couple of months, I just forgot about it until I re-discovered it in my garage and took the back off thinking a fuse may have blown. No re-movable fuses found.
Summary: Nice unit, except function and durability. Paid $155 at Lowe's 15 months ago. I thought at first it should be getting cool faster, but must be the technology used. For white wine, must be set on maximum cool, which means the fans never stop running, and are not that quiet. Month 15, noticed my wine was warm. Found lower inside fan encased in ice behind the panel. Removed the panel, thawed the ice, and let dry.
Summary: Worked well for a few months and then the top fan went out and the warm was getting too warm. Trying to find a replacement fan, but don't want to buy Haier parts as they are obviously faulty. Someone make some replacement parts for this! Will never buy Haier products again. Do not buy the Haier HVTS18DABB Wine Cooler!
Summary: I got this for my husband for his birthday two years ago and it still works great. It has a sleek look to it with a small footprint- important for those of us with small space. It is pretty quiet and keeps his bottles of reds at a good temperature. No complaints.
Summary: Like almost everyone on here, or at least the ones that have had the unit for just over a year, mine has stopped working. My wife and I got this from Bed Bath & Beyond and enjoyed the unit and liked how it looked next to our bar. But a year passed and one day it just stopped working, no lights, no fans, nothing at all. We were out of town when it happened and figured that the person watching the house had left the door slightly open and the motors overheated.
