Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Teebee No replacement parts
If anything goes wrong no with this unit, you're buying a new wine cooler. You can't get parts for this. The tempered glass on my unit randomly *popped* one day... So I'm in the market for a new cooler

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hot under the collar It once worked
Purchased the wine fridge due to good price. It iced up in the upper left hand corner but it was working and defrosting is no big deal. For the past few months the compressor has been turned off because the contents was empty. Moved it to another room and plugged it in. Compressor is hot, refrigerator is not working. Nothing suggested in the manual to do besides take off the door when I throw it away. It is unfortunate that refrigerators and similar items are so disposable because they are not made to last.

I bought this several months ago and it seems to do the work. I am not a big fan of wine, but I needed to fill the dishwasher space up with something.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WineNthusiast Great value but tricky to set temp high enough
This cooler is the best value I've seen in low priced wine storage units. But there is a trick to setting temp higher. Turn knob to "cold" (lowest marked) setting. Allow cooler to stabilize (at least 4 hours empty). It will probably read 50 degrees. Then, turn unit to off. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Then turn knob to "Cool" again. compressor will turn on. Back it down about 1/16 " (you will feel friction, but compressor will still be running). Wait overnight and see if temp has risen. If too much (say 60-65 degrees temp), repeat same procedure, not turning knob as far after activating compressor in "Cold" position. I know this sounds complicated, but once you hit the sweet spot, 55 degrees, it will remain there. Another recommendation: pre-cool wine in kitchen fridge for 45 min prior to adding to cooler and only add one or two bottles at a time, if possible. This will keep temp stable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marty Defective Design
Do not buy this appliance if you value the contents that you will store in the product. Due to a design defect, the unit may not restart after a power failure. If you are not available to restart the unit manually, the interior temperature will soon return to room temperature potentially ruining the contents. If you contact Frigidaire regarding the failure of your product to restart, they will tell you that on page 7 of the user guide it states that ”To prolong the life of compressor, please wait for at least 5 minutes before the unit is restarted after power failure” I purchased this product since I travel frequently and wanted the ability to maintain a 85 degree thermostat setting at home while away. Upon return from a recent trip, I found that a power failure had caused the appliance to go dead. The contents of the cooler (wine, olive oil, chocolate) all spoiled!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stormy weather Works fine
Does what it's expected to do. Single zone for 1 type of cooling -- can be set up for either reds, whites, or other beverages. Not noisy which it good. Need to regulate the temperature depending on season but that is expected.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kat It does the job
We purchased this wine cooler to store not only wine, but beer, soda and bottled water. It keeps the drinks cool and basically does what we expected. However, you have to be very careful about closing the door completely and holding it shut before you walk away. If you just try to give it a push to shut (like we do with the big frig) the door bounces back open and will stay that way until someone notices...with kids this means the door has been left open for hours. Also, the lock on the door is difficult to use.
