Customer Question

I purchased 4 built in Wine Refrigerators
CWR461DZ. I had them put into a piece made for them. Two have stopped working as there is not the proper ventillation. Can they be repair. Or have they burned out. Thank you for you time. Nancy Lew Los Angeles, CA

So it's hard to know exactly what's wrong, but you'll want to pull the refrigerator out and remove the lower back panel to see the compressor. Touch the compressor and if it's really hot, then maybe unplug the unit for 24 hours to let the unit cool down and try again. If it still doesn't cool, then the compressor has gone bad due to the poor ventilation as you suspected. If the compressor isn't warm at all, then you likely have a bad thermostat not telling the compressor to turn on.
