20 Most Recent Breville WC15XL Compact Wine Cooler Questions & Answers


HOW TO USE

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.

The Igloo 100 series portable icemakers that are sold all over for about $100 have several minor issues. For ADD WATER light, there are 2 main ones. The water SENSOR is located at the top right of the unit. Remove the BACK cover with 6 screws on the bottom. Remove the TOP assy with 4 screws from inside the case. When the TOP is off, facing the unit from front, you see the small silver wire at the back right. Clean it AND the screw visible thru the hole in the plastic at the end of the sensor wire. The screw is the GROUND side of the sensor. This fixes many of the issues. But the SENSOR senses water FLOW, not water LEVEL. If the PUMP is not moving water, the sensor assumes you are OUT of water and turns on the ADD WATER light. The pump apparently burns out easily. Remove the PUMP wire connector from the CONTROL BOARD and check for continuity in the motor. Be sure your multimeter leads actually touch the connectors. The connection end is too small for most meters, so probe from the backside of the connector. If motor is good, check for 12vdc at the board side of the pump connector. Plug in, turn on. Should be 12vdc within 45 seconds. See, the water pump comes on first. When water is moving over the sensor, then the board will turn on the compressor and start freezing.

The other issue with not making ice is the crazy condenser coil is a PULL THROUGH. Air enters the machine through the bottom and exits the side. Should be the other way around, because the condenser coil easily stops up with lint and other debris in the air. This creates a high pressure condition for the compressor that will either shut the unit down or cook the compressor. Clean the entering air side of the coil with a brush and blow compressed air through from the fan side. to clean the inner portions of the coil.

What type device is the wine opener? Who makes it? There should be a manual for it.

WITHOUT ANY TESTING REALLY HARD TO GUESS

Refrigerators | Answered on Dec 07, 2019


maybe it is lack of oil inside its bearing that causes noise and stop by high friction inside.

okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---

Sounds like the evaporator is icing up, possibly the defrost thermostat. Find where the cold air comes from and follow it back to the cold source, remove the covers. Your problem is that it only got seasonal use. Fridges are freezers need to be left on all the time.

The replacement thermostat also may be defective (it happens). However, there may actually be a circuitry problem that replacement thermostats can't fix.

Often indicative of a clogged defrost drain

Refrigerators | Answered on Dec 02, 2019


Fully defrost it.
Check the internal fan is working.
The ideal setting is half of its maximum. If the dial goes to 8, set it at 4, then adjust a little colder of a little warmer.

The thermostat may be failing, or has failed and it is running flat out and icing up?
or
The defrost system has failed - defrost timer or heater.

I had the same issue. It was the defrost timer at the back of the freezer and the evaporator was a solid block of ice.
