Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony Why does anyone keep buying this junk?
I bought this early 2015 and like clockwork, 2 months after warranty the compressor is broken. If you are reading this review, it's very simple, THIS COOLER WILL LAST YOU MAYBE 1 1/2 YEARS TOPS AND YOU WILL BE STUCK WITH A LOUSY NON WORKING APPLIANCE.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Worst purchase ever
Purchased this wine cooler new when the kitchen was being remodeled. After one year, the refrigerator stopped working completely. I checked with some companies in Houston Tx to see if they could repair it and no one wants to look at it since Whynter will not release parts to them for repairs. I contacted Whynter and they told me it had to be sent to their California location for repairs. It also has to be shipped in the original container it was purchased in which I don't have. If I had the shipping box it would cost me $270 to send it one way. This is not counting any repair cost and then I also have to pay return shipping which is far less since Whynter ships so much merchandise out daily.
This is a worthless until and I will not buy it again nor ever buy any Whynter products. DO NOT buy any Whynter products or you can end up like me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by extracaringer Fancy looking in counter wine storage
More or less what I was looking for. The price from HD is definitely what I liked best. My first impression after just installing the unit is that it's fairly well made. Holds a good number of bottles. What I think is the best characteristic is the ability to cool fast and to maintain a constant temp over time. That's the whole point of getting a fancy wine fridge. This does it well and I would not hesitate to purchasee it again i f needed.

Bought this unit 1 year ago. Kept in storage while new house was being built. Installed it in March of this year. Unit is now dead - runs but no cooling. Compressor, all fans operating-surmise bad compressor valves or plugged cap. tube. Low current draw so compressor is not working (no compression). No response back from Whynter yet. Will follow up if Whynter responses.

Unit is pretty much as expected. Fan short-cycles about every 20 seconds, which seems excessive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LCRinSanFrancisco Works ok - but doesn't hold amount of bottes advertised
I have had the cooler about a month. It was easy to install however hard (or impossible) to fit all the bottles in as advertised. Bottles don't fit between shelves so I had to remove several shelves. Also, the front decorative metal trim pieces on most shelves came off so I had to re-glue back on. Cooler turned off once for no apparent reason...not sure why. It does look nice and fit well into exiting spot where 20 year old cooler was installed. I don't particularly like the blue, red and green lights on the front panel. I don't need a lot of storage and as long as it continues to work I am happy with it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick First wine fridge
Bought this wine fridge for a little kitchen area I put in my basement rec room. One problem is the thing runs constantly. The area is heated with a wood stove so sometimes it's a little chilly down there when the stove is not on. The manual says the problem could be that room is too cold. But the problem persists even when the stove is running. Also it sits on a tile floor that is on the concrete so the floor is always on the cold side. Also it's rated as a 33 bottle fridge but that must be 33 really small bottles. With normal sized wine bottles it's probably more like 20-25. It does look good and seem to be built well.
