Normally a wine cabinet with compressor cooling technology is accompanied by an occasional humming sound. If the sounds become constant and too loud, it is an indication of an abnormal situation and should be diagnosed immediately.
The correct positioning of the compressor is very critical to ensure operation. If the wine cabinet is not level, but is misaligned, the compressor parts will rattle against each other.
In case your wine cooler is pretty old, there is natural wear and tear on the compressor motor. Typically, wear causes backlash, abrasion of pistons or piston rings. If this problem is ignored, decompression of the motor will occur and in addition to noise, you will see a long running compressor.
Compressor springs or shock absorbers are worn out
Special shock absorbers or springs are designed to neutralize compressor vibration. Over time, they can fail, crack or tear. As a result, the metal parts of the unit bodies will touch and vibration or metallic sound will occur when starting and stopping the compressor.
To fix the problem, you need to correctly align the cabinet by adjusting its position with special feet. If the problem is related to wear of shock absorbers or springs – replace them by contacting the service center. If the problem is due to wear of the compressor itself, there can only be one solution – it must be replaced.
How to preserve wine during repairs
To keep wine from losing its flavor, it must be stored in comfortable conditions. The bottles can be placed in an ordinary cellar or in the attic while the wine cabinet is being repaired. In this case, the room should be dark, cool and free of extraneous odors. If you do not own such storage, you can organize a place for wine bottles in the closet, on the top shelves. Don’t consider a regular refrigerator as an alternative place to store wine. Too low temperatures, vibration, and the proximity of products with different smells will have an extremely negative impact on the properties and taste of the wine.
