Breezaire Keeps Turning Off

Breezaire Keeps Turning Off

If your Breezaire wine cooling unit won't stay "on", it's probably because the protection mechanism is becoming activated.

The protection mechanism is designed to turn off the wine cooling unit after 45 minutes if it registers 70°F or above and then can't reduce the temperature below 65°F within 45 minutes. 
This situation usually occurs when ambient temperatures become warmer and/or the condenser coils haven't been cleaned.  The instructions below should be followed in these circumstances:

  1. Reset the cooling unit:

    • Unplug the cooling unit, wait 5 minutes and then reconnect it to the outlet;
    • Change the temperature set-point to 60° F;
    • Turn the light on and off;
    • Close the cabinet doors for 45 minutes.
    • After 45 minutes, open the cabinet doors and check the temperature on the display. If the temperature is still above 65° F, you will need to unplug the unit and repeat the procedure.
  2. Clean the coils on the back of the cooling unit.
  3. Consider using a bottle probe during hot weather conditions. With a bottle probe, the cooling unit will cycle on and off based on the liquid temperature inside the bottle, rather than the air temperature inside the cabinet. Because liquid temperatures change more slowly, the bottle probe will help override the protection mechanism during hot weather conditions. You can purchase a bottle probe on our website, or from any of our dealers for approximately $20.
  4. If the cabinet doors have glass windows and the wine cabinet is located in a garage or another "extreme" environment, consider placing insulation on top of the windows during hot weather conditions to reduce the transfer of heat through the windows.
