Won’t chill below 15 degrees
The display panel failed outside of warranty, so I ordered a new display panel and PCB. Installation of these was relatively easy (though it did involve door removal and dismantling of fridge fascia, so not child’s play).
This fixed the display, and it was working fine for about 2 months, but then the temperature started rising. We were running it at 8 degrees, but the temp rose to 15 by itself.
After this we shut the fridge off, and will be throwing it out at next council cleanup.
All the reading I’ve done on it leads me to believe that these issues are common across the Delonghi wine fridges, and it’s not a matter of if it will break, but when.

Switches off all the time
This wine fridge has never worked properly have had service people out numerous times to find the problem - they put it down to display panel and parts took forever to come. So they replaced the whole fridge and is still doing the exact same thing !!’
Keeps shutting off
Not noticed it being noisy but it constantly shuts off. Come home to see the two blue lights on only. Manual states it will do this if overloaded but even with only a few bottles per shelf it shuts off. Was doing it every month and now it is every day. Bought in late 2013 so out of warranty. We didn't contact Harvey Norman during warranty to report so will replace with a more reliable brand.
Update: Jan2017. Was in warranty plus we had extended warranty. Repairs effected very quickly and so far it is running perfectly. Although my husband now says it runs a little loud.
Rubbish. Do not buy.
I have two of these wine fridges and they both stopped cooling within a month of each other. Add to this the temperature display are faulty on both units. They are poorly designed and the shelving layout is not flexible to accommodate different bottle shapes. I will add these fridges to the hard rubbish collection.
Stopped working immediately after warranty ran out
Stopped working shortly after the warranty ran out, and would cost more to fix than to buy a new fridge. The temperature is currently 30 degrees, and quite worried that we have lost some good wine. When it was running, it was very noisy. Would not recommend. Rang DeLonghi and they seemed completely disinterested.
Delonghi product is rubbish despite being well known brand, wine fridge makes noise every 15 seconds when on and drives me nuts, Do not buy Delonghi!! 12 months old and looks great, but performance simply terrible, will be replacing with another brand....delonghi support is hopeless too.

Looks good and is syllish but very noisy fan which is disappointing. Also top gets hot. It is in our formal dining room and is very annoying and distracting when entertaining guests. Energy rating was not available at time of purchase so not sure if the noisy fan and hot top equates to poor energy rating?
Noisy, top gets hot and door gets condensation buildup on warm days.
I recently purchased this product and am disappointed with the constant noise of the circulation fan. It operates every 15 seconds for around 10 seconds. What a shame. I contacted Delonghi and apparently this is normal. Problem is, it currently resides in our dining/lounge room and kitchen area making it difficult to listen to the television.
Looks stylish and shelves have quality shelf runners.
Constant running of circulation fan
