Retarder Problems

January 3, 2012 - 12:19am -- Scusi

    Has anyone else had problems with the thermostats on wine coolers? My wife bought me a Kenmore (Sears) wine cooler to use as a retarder. The (non-digital) thermostat could not get the temp any higher than 47˚, ten degrees below the advertised max.

    Sears sent out (over a few weeks) three repairmen with two replacement thermostats. They were all junk from you-know-where; all covered variable ranges between high 20s and low 50s. None got to 55˚.
