Stopped Working - short warranty

Elijah, Amazon
22 August 2011
  • Summary: After about one year the unit simply stopped cooling. We could hear a fan but no cooling. Since the warranty is only 90 days, we now have a piece of useless junk where we can store bottles at room temperature. Cannot recommend because of poor reliability.

Stopped cooling

Cionmonge, Amazon
17 July 2011
  • Summary: This wine cooler worked like a champ right when I first plugged it in. Almost as soon as the 90 DAY WARRANTY expired, so did the cooling feature. It will get no cooler than 72 degrees. Heed my warning when looking at this one.

not enough cooling

martha, Amazon
25 April 2011
  • Summary: It should come with more settings to give more choices as how cold you want your wine. Some people like their wine colder than others. Than why bother with a wine cooler.

Performance Doesn't Last

Rocketman, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: My Koolatron WC08 is only about 2 years old. When new, it performed just fine. If I set it to say 50F, it would stay within one degree of that setting. Later I noticed it couldn't keep up in the summer when the house might get up to 80F inside. Now it can't maintain proper temp at all....It always runs at least five degrees warmer than the setting. This unit is not durable.

Maybe it's for Chinese wine bottles?

A. Seidel, Amazon
20 June 2010
  • Summary: It appears that Koolatron did not measure current wine bottles: Forget about putting Sylvaner, Gewuerztraminer, Pinot Gris, Rieslings from France into it (bottles are too long); forget about Alban's (CA) Viognier etc. (bottle has too large a diameter); forget about some Loire Valley whites (again diameter). That's all I've tried before giving up.

warranty

Doris Honig Guenter, Amazon
16 June 2010
  • Summary: I did not know until I got the Kooler that it only came with a 90 day warranty. I have contacted both Amazon and the manufacturer about this and have not received a response. I fully expected a year's guarantee.

Great Wine Cooler

Red Mare, Amazon
7 April 2010
  • Summary: This is a great size and runs quiet. It keeps the wine at perfect temperature. The inside light is not very bright and makes it hard to read the wine bottles so I have to turn on another light.
