wont maintain proper temp!
taking back to the store asap!
We own three of these wine fridges. Two are used at home, one for reds and one for whites. The third unit we brought to our summer home. They keep the wines at a good temp. and the units are quiet. Footnote: the third one I bought failed the first week, but Sears replaced it without a problem.
whether dialed in on minimum or maximum this wine chiller basically holds at 42 degrees no matter how you set it. at that temp red wine doesn't usually make sense.
The Wine Cellar is great! It keeps the wine at a perfect temperature and runs very quiet.We are very pleased with the price, looked at some much higher, but decided this had all the features we needed. We have used the Wine Cellar for a year now, and have not found any problems. I would recommend this product.
This review may sound like a fairy tale albeit a fractured one.The first unit I received via UPS arrived damaged. I returned it to a local store for replacement. No one but the store manager could process the return which took me well over an hour. The second unit from the store had a defective thermostat so rather than wait 2 weeks for a new part according to the sears repairman, I returned the unit again to the store. The 3rd unit I received had a large dent in the side of it. Again, I returned it to the store. I was given a 4th unit which to my surprise was the first damaged unit I received via UPS, having been returned to stock. It was not better the second time around. I gave up and got my money refunded. What a nightmare! I really wanted the cooler.
The unit is very poorly packaged for a fridge. I am surprised anyone got one not damaged or defective so they could review it. While the second one worked for a week until the repairman killed it completely, it was a relatively quiet unit. It clicks fairly loud when it cycles on and off, which it did frequently. It was a little annoying for a main part of the house and we had decided to put it in a back room after it was repaired. Unfortunately I never had that opportunity.
I was so happy with the ordering and pick up at my local Sears facility. Nothing could have been easier. I showed up with my preprinted receipt, scanned the bar code on the receipt where instructed; and miraculously, a very strong lad appeared with my wine 'fridge' in hand at the ready to stow it in my suv. I was so impressed!!!!!
As for the product, so far, so good!
We've only had the cooler about a month, but so far everything is working well. I ordered the wine cooler online and the pickup service was very well organized and quick. We haven't tried to fully load the cooler but I think that it might be difficult to get 25 bottles of wine in the cooler and have quick access. But overall we've been very happy with the wine cooler.
After my thermo cooled unit of 13 months went to greener pastures, I looked around for a unit that uses actual refrigeration. I found this unit at Sears at a very good price for a 25 bottle cooler. It keeps the wine at the right temp. and is adjustable between 25 degrees. The only negative is, is that it's diffucult to get 25 bottle of wines to fit comfortably, it holds 20 easier. I just bought a second one for my daughter and she really likes it.
I am very happy with this wine cellar. It fits and looks great just like the discription. The only problem I had was the glass door was cracked when delievered, but service was great and the replacement was quick and easy.
I purchased this item about 6 months ago and it works just fine. It's reasonably quiet, keeps everything nice and cool and it looks good too. What more can one ask? I use it to store both wine and beer. It works best with the thermostat set at about 75% max. The internal light is a nice feature. I previously tried an Avanti wine cooler, which I decided to return. This is unit is far superior.
