20 Most Recent Breville WC15XL Compact Wine Cooler Questions & Answers


First you place the Wine Cooler on a flat, dry surface, making sure that the timer is in the "off" position.

Remove the chill cells from the freezer and place around the inside of the cooler.

Thirdly, place the bottle inside the cooler and then pour cold tap water inside, until it just covers the top of the chill cells.

You can then plug the unit in, or if it has batteries you don't need to.

Finally, you set the control dial to the desired time. The following are recommendations for different types of beverages:

Sparkling Wine, Champagne and Dessert Wine.....9 minutes

Dry Wines, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling.....6 minutes

Chardonnay, Rose'....5 minutes

Light Red Wines, Pinot Noir....3.8 minutes

Full Bodied Reds, Shiraz, Grenache, Cab Sauvignon, Merlot....3 minutes

If you choose to chill a beverage without the timer, you just turn the control to the left and when you are done you turn it to the off position.

In addition to wine, the cooler can also chill beer and soft drinks. The only limitation is that the bottle diameter can be no more than 3.75 inches.

Should you wish to chill two or more consecutive bottles, the cells will remain cold enough for you to to do so.

While not in use, the cooler can also be used on the table with ice to keep your beverages cold (much like a regular ice bucket).

The power cord is removable, which makes for an easy clean-up.

The unit comes with a manufacturer's One-Year Limited Warranty.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a washing machine hookup. Most washing machines hookups have two hose bibbs (faucets that a hose can screw on to), one for hot and one for cold. Refrigerators have a 1/4 inch flexible line, either copper or plastic. So, I'm assuming that you mean you have a hose bibb for the water supply and you want to connect it to the quarter inch line on the fridge.

The best approach would be to remove the hose bibb and connect to the line that is feeding it. Assuming that it is a 1/2" rigid copper pipe you can get adaptors at a plumbing store or at a store like Home Depot to step it down to 1/4", then connect to the fridge line with a compression fitting. If your hose bibb is threaded, you would start at the wall with the same size threaded connection and see what your local store has available in the line of adaptors. Best would be if you can find a single adaptor that will go from 1/2" to 1/4". You may need one to go from 1/2" to 3/8" and another to go from 3/8" to 1/4".

A second approach that would be a jury rig type of thing (say if you can't get the hose bibb off) would be to get a hose end connector to attach to the faucet and step it down with clamps and tubing. Use adaptors that fit inside tubing of successively smaller sizes (2 steps will probably do it) ending with 1/4" plastic that you can attach to your fridge with a compression union. (they make 3/8" to 1/4" compression unions, so you would only need to end with a 3/8 inch tube making the connection with the adaptor/union.

Modify this according to what you have in the house (say if you have 5/8" water lines instead of 1/2").

If I'm not understanding your problem correctly, please clarify.

It must be broken.

The little bucket is to collect water which normally condenses from the air in the fridge as it cools. [This is because each time you open the fridge, warm humid air comes in to replace the drier cooler air inside. Warm air can carry more moisture than cold.] The container is usually placed near the compressor so that the warmth will help it evaporate into the room. But if something in the fridge has spilt or leaked then it will find its way to the container, hence the smell!
I suggest a good clean out of the whole fridge. Be careful as you remove the shelves and/or drawers, and do not scratch the surfaces inside the fridge. If there is a lot of ice, you might need a bigger container behind to catch all the water as the little receptacle won't hold it and it will spill onto the floor.

Hope this was helpful. If so please leave a comment, thanks.

Your fridge's thermostat (properly speaking, thermistor) is broken - to replace it is a bit tricky, but search the links under "waeco cf60 thermistor replacement" and check the videos given. Be careful not to cut the coolant pipe (!) while you are cutting away the foam to extract the thermistor with its wire. [You'll know if it's damaged as it will smell of gas, and after a while the fridge won't work at all!]

Hope this helps, please give feedback, thanks.
