Summary: We have had several problems with this wine fridge. The fans for the upper compartment (white wines) regularly seize when too much ice builds up behind them. Since the fans aren't running, the compartment (and wine) warm up. To get rid of the ice you have to unplug the unit, which causes all of the wines to warm up. Thus some of the wines we've wanted to save have both 1) gotten too warm; and 2) been through several temperature cycles.
Summary: I bought this at Fry's for $299. At first I was pleased with the product. About 1 month later the fun began. The bottom portion no longer maintained temperature. I called and was surprised when they sent a technician to my house within 2 weeks. The technician said the cooling unit was bad. He ordered the unit and scheduled a follow-up appointment for two weeks from that day. I could elaborate but I will say that the part never came.
Summary: I too bought this item from another dealer for $100 more in price and am having the same experience. The concept was just what I was looking for, but there is absolutely no quality to the product. My problem started with the upper shelves not fitting properly and the temperature never going as low as I wanted for white wines.
Summary: I bought this wine cooler and it was never right from the start. It had wiring problems, and the parts were not available. After a month of trying to get it fixed, the company shipped 2 replacements to me (over 2 more months), both of which were damaged at the factory. Four months later I still do not have a working wine cooler. I have applied for a refund, which they tell me will take another month. More junk made in China!!
