Unit's upper zone stopped working two month after purchase - fan was running, but there was no cooling function. It looked like the top thermo-elements have been defective. After reading warranty info ( I should had done it prior to purchase - no excuses.) I found that Koolatron is only providing 90 days protection and does not refund shipping charges to Canada or another US location (approx $60 for UPS). I was told that if it fails again I would have to ship at my expense again (no refund even if they find that product was defective) and warranty would not be extended. I found that no local warranty repair service is available anywhere else in the country. Customer rep. would not let me to discuss my options with her manager and simply hang up on me after I started complaining.
I got very lucky that our local Sears store kindly agreed to take this unit back at full refund (including shipping)under their 90 days return policy!
The design is great. It's compact and fits perfectly into my living room between a couch and sofa. Herein is the problem. The unit requires 5 inches of space all the way around. That's 5 inches per side and 5 inches at the rear. You cannot have it right up against the wall or against furniture. Insufficient air circulation will cause the unit to fail. If you don't have 10 inches of extra width and 5 inches of depth, don't bother.
I got this unit mid-December 2012. About 2 weeks after setting it up, all the lights started blinking on and off continuously and the unit stopped working. I unplugged it and moved some things around to ensure proper circulation. Plugging it in an hour later seemed to solve the problem so it was probably just an overheat due to poor air flow.
It's now July 2013. I've had this unit operating for exactly 7 months. The fan for the bottom/red zone has stopped working. There is still 5 inches of space all around and air flow is good. The top/white zone is still chilling. Just the bottom is lame. I'm still using the unit since I can still chill whites, which is most important, but the red zone is basically an expensive storage space.
Save your money and buy a better quality unit. This one won't last you a year.
The unit did not sit square on the floor. It rocked from side to side, the feet did not adjust the rock out. I had to put a felt spacer under one of the feet.
I want to keep the white wine at 45F and the red at 60F. The unit never seems to get to 45. 48 is the best it can do. I also think the lights and temperature gauges are a little gaudy.
The upper zone can support 6 bottles while the lower one holds 12. The product also includes a double-paned insulated glass, soft interiors and seven stainless steel racks which makes Koolatron one of the top leading brands
