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˚.
Finally my engineer/wife figured out how to hack the thermostat to get it to keep the temp in the mid-50's, but it involved a mod that makes the thermo physically fragile, so it's best not to adjust it up and down.
The discussions I've read here previously seemed to indicate that no-one had any problems with the temps of their wine coolers; is that really the case? Would love to hear others' experiences.
