Tips In Keeping Your Wine Cooler Working Smoothly


Whether you have a brand new wine cooler or have had one for years, it is vital to ensure you do all the best you can to keep it running and working smoothly. Though wine coolers are low-maintenance appliances, there are things you can do to help increase their efficiency and extend their useful life.

We at Platinum Subzero Repair provide you here maintenance tips that you can use in ensuring your unit’s efficiency and extending their life expectancy.


Determining where to place your wine cooler can mean all the difference. When choosing where to put them, consider the following factors:

  • Proper VentilationPlace your unit under the counter, build it with cabinets, or place it somewhere on its own. If you put it in a tight space, make sure you leave 2 to 4 inches on each side for proper ventilation.
  • Ambient TemperatureWine coolers are sensitive to heat, as well as sunlight. No matter what type of your unit is, you should not place it in an area that receives lots of direct sunlight.

Properly Installed

Once unpacked, let it stand upright for 24 hours or more, as it allows all of the inner components to settle themselves that may have rattled during the shipping or delivery. Then plugged it into a leveled and proper grounding place. This decreases the possibility of a shock hazard.

Know the Right Capacity & Never Overload

It is better to purchase a larger capacity rather than to try to force your wide collection of wines to a too-small wine cooler. If it is overloaded, you run the risk of hot spots that may lead your wine to perform poorly.

Clean Regularly

Occasional cleaning of your wine cooler will ensure that it will perform to its optimal performance and extend its lifespan. It is also a good opportunity to ensure there is no frost or moisture buildup.

Upkeep the Filtration

Some wine coolers available in the market come with a filtration system. Change the filters every 3 to 6 months, or they may cause blockage and will no longer work as they should. 

For most people, their wine cooler unit is their biggest investment. So, always be sure to pay attention to your investment by taking good care of them.
