Jaybeeasked

I have a Lemair LWC694 Wine Fridge and today I noticed that nothing was showing on the display. I checked connection to power and it is ok but the unit appears to have stopped working. I unplugged and replugged in to power and held the power switch on the unit down for 10 seconds but no response. Also tried turning the light on but no response. It is a hot day today in Melbourne and wondered why f the unit has overheated somehow?

If ice is inside back, maybe you have not had the door closing properly.

i tried making sure the door was closed tight. i wonder if it the seal.

Looks like you have the Technical people following up.
If the power is still on it may be the thermostat has given up.

i have the bubbling sound when the compressor turns off - sounds like crickets in the room. Does it settle with time or is this a permanent noise?

Hi Ralph,

Water bubbling comes from the refrigerant circulating of the wine cellar, this is normal

Thanks :)

Hello John, I'm not sure of what the number of bottles it is supposed to store. I have just checked and I have 40 in mine. Rgds Picante

Hi John, Yes that's accurate, our fridge holds 59 bottles, our instruction manual has a diagram on how to stack the bottles. Thanks.

Hey all,
I have recently purchased one of these units.

My unit makes a frog type sound nearly the entire time. It is levelled and plumbed true... Any ideas..? Limited knowledge here.

Is the thermo cooked as the sounds is a constant the fridge is far too cold, regardless of the temp. setting.

They replaced mine and it does the exact same thing as the original unit (frog noise) so I've just resigned myself to the fact that that's what they do.

I am not sure what the "frog type sound" is, unless you are referring to a noise of bubbles going through the system noticeable after the compressor has stopped. These bubbles which I have in mine, are gas trying to pass through the condensed liquid in the condenser normally after compressor stops. If the T/Stat is permanently stuck on, the unit would freeze. Normally, if the T/stat is not working it will not turn on, so will not cool at all.

How noisy are these?
I read some reports saying saying not noisy at all, others say they can hear it across the room.
My wife is quite noise sensitive, especially to low humming sounds.

Cheers, Tim

Like any refrigerator there is a light motor noise when running. This is to be expected and has not been annoying. When it turns off there may be a sound of the liquid refrigerant dripping in the condenser coil for short while.

Hey Hector,

41dB! Hope that helps :)

Compressor isn't any noisier than a normal fridge's.

What causes the back plate in the fridge to freeze with a thick layer of ice?

Hi

My unit does not have this problem. A couple of suggestions -
* Have you adjusted the thermostat ? Mine is just above the WARM setting - way warmer than normal - and the reds come out just fine.
* Is the unit full of bottles? I imagine if its empty, the unit may be over-chilling.

Let me know how these suggestions go.
Regards
Tony

Hello
i have no problem like that with my unit. In my years of experience in refrigeration, I would suggest that there is an air leak in the door seal or some such allowance of humid air getting in and being attracted to condense on the evaporator panel ( coldest part). It is not a matter of how cold you set it, just a matter of how often and long you may leave door open to allow outside air to replace the dehumidified cold air. Turn off the fridge and allow it to defrost with a towel in the bottom to soak up the moisture. Then start again keeping watch that the door is closed properly.
