Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 345678 Broken from Day 1
We received this item in 4/10 and set it up right away. Packing was good and the item seemed secure and undamaged. However, when we set it up we found it does not work. We followed the instructions to set the temps for each zone but neither zone cooled down. The instructions said it could take up to 6 hours for the temp to stabilize. Neither chamber cooled at all and even worse the lower chamber said it was 54 degrees but it was ambient room temp. Don't bother with this fridge. I saw two other negative reviews online and had hoped they were just outliers but I think it's a dud.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arya For connaiseurs
This cooler is for connaiseurs only. The top compartment is for red wines. Connaiseurs know red wine is to be served at room tmperatue (castle room temperature). Lower comparrtment is for white wines. Also connaiseurs know white wine is to be served at castle cellar temperature. For non-connaiseurs and beer drinkers an advice: use the fridge in the kitchen.
Nothing stops working on this product; just does the job right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pabloeh Exactly one year later
This wine cooler functioned well for exactly one year! Then it suddenly stopped. Seems to be an internal power failure as the interior and indicator lights are all out too!
There is no reset button.
I expected there to be at least a year warranty.
However I see just how much faith Koolatron have in their products by offering a NINETY day warranty.
That is a joke!
Would gladly pay double for a German made product!

Attention Home Depot!! This wine cooler is junk, do not sell this any more...I received it as a xmas gift, the cooler stopped working after 6 months and bottom cooler says 56 degrees but wine is room temperature. 90 day warranty says a lot about Koolatron...they know it is junk. Like other reviews, save your money, look elsewhere and do not buy this wine cooler.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 71hokie Second one arrived damaged
Had to send first one back because it would not cool down to advertised temperature in lower zone and one of the LCD displays had bad element. Second one arrived and I was damaged in 4 places. One of feet was seriously dented up and into the body of the unit. Top silver plastic door was cracked in two places and top edge was dented. Only reason I gave it a 1-star was because there was no way to rate it lower.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bien 18 Bottle Dual Zone Wine Cooler
We received this item and set it up right away. Packing was good and the item seemed secure and undamaged. . Only one chamber cooled at all and even worse the lower chamber said it was 54 degrees but it was ambient room temp. The bottom chamber keept on freezing up and causing the fan to stop working. I had to defrost the botton chamber several times for the fan to work again. Don't bother with this fridge. Too much trouble for the cost.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mick63 not worth it, look elsewhere
just over a year old and the top section is not cooling anymore
even though the fan is still working.
The size was right but the quality is poor.
Don't buy it.
The store should not be stocking it.

This product started out great but after 6 months the top compartment stopped working. I could not get the temperature in the top below 26 degrees!
