Summary: Love this wine cooler. Size is fantastic. Love the look of it and how the drawers pull out. This is my second haier purchase. The first lasted over 9 years. I don't find that the sound is loud and so far the temp. Is staying regulated. Would definitely recommend to others. Very pleased!!
Summary: I have had one for several years and it only worked for about one year. Tried to fix it by replacing the temperature control unit and ended up with a different problem. It just isn't worth having all of your precious wines going down to 33 degress one day, and then they warm up to 60 in the following week.
Summary: Good looking, dual-zone system chills to proper temperatures, but this is noisiest and gurgling refrigeration system I've heard. Tried restarting, still the noise continues. When the system is at temp, quiet.
Summary: This is the third Haier 40 bottle chiller we have purchased and twice they have come in damaged. Amazon was incredibly responsive in taking the damaged one back and replacing it with another at no charge to us, so high praise to them. But Haier seems to have an issue with packaging this item securely. The other 2 we own have been working well for over 2 yrs.
Summary: 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 The bottom portion no longer maintained temperature.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 purchased 2 of these wine coolers 3yrs ago. The first one died after 6months. Haier took over 3 months and replace every electronic part in it to fix it, but couldn't. After much arguing, they finally sent me a replacement. 2yrs later, the replacement fridge and the second one I intially bought have both failed. They all 3 did the same thing. All of a sudden it would show one zone at 45degrees and the other at 77degrees.
Great Unit. Does what it claims. Keeps the wine cool.

Summary: I've had this wine cooler for 7 years now. The ball bearing on one of the sliding shelf broke but Haier sent a replacement part right away. Other than that, it does get a bit humid during the summer months but I believe that's due to the ambient air in the room where it draws the air from. For some reason, the second shelf from the top gets really humid and the labels on the bottles will get wrinkled.

Summary: Haier HVFE040BBB 40-Bottle Dual-Zone Free Standing Wine Chiller We bought the Haier 40 bottle double zone wine cellar 3 weeks ago and received it two weeks ago. Upon receipt it did not work; the dual cooling zones were malfunctioning. We set both to 56 degrees for red wine, the would not cool below 75; the bottom would not warm more than 41.
Summary: I dont have a very large quantity bottles of wine but once in a while I like to enjoy some, so I receive the box with my wine cooler in perfectly condition and I really like the shape and size of this item, I start and I set the temperatures of whites and red wine it was so easy to set and in 1.5 hours the temperatures was set as I put it. Im enjoying this item that Im thinking to buy another one.
