Summary: Was very excited with the purchase of this cooler because of it's compact size. After only 3 months of use it started to emit a clicking sound and stopped working. This now seems to be a common problem that the manufacturer should be responsible for fixing.
Summary: I purchased this unit in 09 from COSTCO. As the rest of the reviewers have indicated with in 6 months the control board went out. Vinotemp sent me a new board of ~$40 and it worked. One year later we repeated the process....bad board. They sent me a board for free.
Summary: I recently purchased a Vinotemp VT-12TEDS-2Z from Craigslist. The lower zone did not work. I removed the back and found the lower fan was not moving and was full of dust and lint. After cleaning it, it was still stiff to turn. The blade on these little fans should spin freely.
Summary: I got this for christmas, and it just stopped working a week ago. I contacted customer service, and they said for $45 plus $15 shipping that I could get a new board. Invest in a better product with a warranty of at least a year.
Really great wine fridge - shockingly good for the price!
7 February 2014
Summary: We've had three different wine fridges in our kitchen in the past 7 years…one was cheap (lasted a year) one was expensive (lasted 3 years) and one died almost right away. This fridge got good reviews and figured it was worth a try b/c the price was fair.
Summary: I purchased this because my wife wanted a wine fridge and she found this. Price was good and with Prime shipping I couldn’t say no. To say the least I read the reviews after purchasing it and was a bit scared and almost canceled.
Summary: I got this and about 10 others free. Replaced the cap on the electric ones from radio shack. I replaced with a the 35v 1000u one and been working every since. Forget vinotemp and buying bs board. Just make sure the cap is drained and the unsolder it.
