Wine Cellar Cooler Maintenance Services

With the proper maintenance, your wine cellar cooling unit can last a long time. Much like any other mechanical or electrical system, your wine cooler requires maintenance to keep it running at optimum efficiency. Wine cellars consist of parts such as compressors and motors that need service, while the coolants need recharging and the filters and gaskets occasionally require replacement. Even if your wine cooler appears to be working fine, it should be inspected annually to ensure all of its components are in excellent working order. Red Leaf Solutions can maintain your wine room cooler, no matter its make, model, or size.

Common Wine Cellar Cooler Problems

Wine cellar coolers provide many benefits, but that doesn’t mean they don’t sometimes have problems and require repair. Wine cellars are designed to keep your wine room at a constant temperature and humidity to ensure proper aging. If your wine cellar conditions are deteriorating, there are some things that can be assessed prior to contacting us for service.


The temperature of your wine cooler cellar affects the way your wine ages. Tannins and other components of wine react differently to heat. The ideal temperature for storing wine is between 55 and 59 degrees. You can use a digital thermometer to measure the temperature in your wine cellar. IF the room is too warm, check the breaker box to ensure the cooler has power. You can try shutting the unit off and letting it rest for a couple of hours before restarting it. If water is dripping from the unit or ice is built upon the evaporator, turn your cooler off and contact us right away for service.


Your wine should be stored in a dark place because UV light can break down the chemical compounds that give the wine its flavor and character. If you own a wine cooler with a clear glass door, be sure to position that door away from the direct sunlight or any fluorescent lights.


While humidity doesn’t directly affect your wine, it does affect the bottle, and that could end up ruing your wine. Wine should be stored between 50-70% humidity regardless of type. Low humidity can dry out the cork, causing it to shrink and allowing air into the wine bottle. If your wine cooler doesn’t have a humidity controller, you can place a pan of water or a wet sponge in it to raise the humidity. Levels of humidity that are too high can also cause labels to peel off or disintegrate. Check your door gasket to ensure there are no gaps allowing the moisture to escape. If you own a humidifier, but the humidity level is still too low, be sure to contact us for service.

Other Wine Cooler Problems

Our team can also repair your wine cellar cooler if it doesn’t turn on, your wine isn’t cooling, the cooler is leaking water or making noise, or the door does not close properly.
