Hello. I purchased a slightly used fridge from someone moving interstate and even when he had it he thought it took a long time to change the temperature.
We have had it for under six months and I hear the wine fridge working all the time to maintain the 12 degree temp. When our Samsung main fridge in the house seems to be so much more efficient. Please advice what can be wrong with this thanks.

Wine fridges are designed to work differently to normal fridges. The way to kill good wine is to change the temperature quickly. They therefore have small cooling systems
which are only capable of changing the temperature very slowly. There is NOTHING at all wrong with this. They still have the capacity to slowly cool to 12-13 Deg C which is ideal storage temperature .. without the risk of sudden temperature change.
Also when a wine fridge is filled up, the thermal capacity of a large volume of liquid (many wine bottles) is large and helps to prevent sudden temperature changes.
Cheap young wine is not very sensitive to sudden temperature change but older expensive wine becomes very sensitive to rapid temperature change which is why the fridge works in the manner you have observed. Cheers

Thank you very much for addressing my concerns Dave. Please let me know if it’s normal for the wine fridge to work much longer than a normal fridge to maintain the temperature. I called two appliances technician and explained the situation and one of them said the cost to repair this would be around $600 and the other said it need to be re-gassed for under $100 please let me know if I should continue to use it this way. Thanks so much. Sanath.

Hi Sanath,

As long as the temperature in your wine cellar is being maintained, there is no fault with your appliance. It can be normal for the fan to run continuously in the Liebherr Barrique wine cellar range if the temperature set to 12° and above (depending on ambient temperature and bottle capacity). If the temperate is set between 5° - 11° the fan will cycle. This is normal operation. If you wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact us on 1300 650 020 or service@andico.com.au.

Warm regards,
Taneille
