Customer Question

My vissani wine cooler stopped cooling and sounds like the compressor tries to kick on but doesn't - just a loud click noise. I unlpugged and noticed that the compressor was very warm to the touch. I was going to let cool and try to plug in again. Any other suggestions?

does your model have a fan beside the compressor? if so the fan should be running to cool the compressor down ,if no fan then the comptessor is just faulty , if you have a amp meter? you can check the amperage draw when it starts or tries to start ,if it is drawing high amps 10+ ?compressor is can try cooling it down and see if it starts..but if it continually cuts off on the overload then the compressor is having a hard time starting..check your sealed system warranty?compressors are usually covered for a longer period than the standard 1 year
