Wine coolers are popular among wine lovers, because they provide superior storage conditions thanks to their advanced thermoelectric systems. Here are some tips and tricks that can prolong the lifespan of these kitchen appliances and several signs that indicate a malfunction. If you notice a problem, don’t hesitate to contact the expert technicians at AAA Appliance Service And Repair.
The first key ingredient to a functional wine cooler is proper storage. It might sound basic, but this is the first reason why the wine loses its quality in a very short time. Always store the bottles horizontally to prevent the cork from drying and air entering the bottle. If you’ve already done this, but you are still not satisfied with the quality of the wine, check if the temperature is adjusted properly. Anywhere between 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit is good, but you also have to make sure the temperature remains constant. In fact, fluctuations in temperature are very dangerous and a temperature that drops and rises every day will affect the wine quality more than a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, for example.
The second aspect that you should check is humidity. The optimal level should be between 50 and 80%. Anything lower or higher than that will cause the cork to try or inflate, which affects wine quality. You can tell that the wine is no longer good if you notice a change in color or taste. Another problem caused by user error is related to wine cooler placement. Wine is extremely sensitive to light, so it doesn’t matter that you have spent a huge amount on a wine cooler if you then store it near a light source. Needless to say, you should keep food and odors away from the wine cooler.
Last, but not least, wine coolers malfunction at one point or another. Apart from temperature problems, which are the easiest to detect, there is also the less known issue of vibrations. Even though subtle vibrations might not seem to do much harm, they are in fact quite dangerous, because they affect wine quality. If the vibrations don’t stop after you’ve plugged the wine cooler off and on again, contact the professional technicians from AAA Appliance Service And Repair and we will perform all the necessary replacements and repairs on site.
