Whisperkool Repair Help???

kaleokahu | Jul 8, 201005:00 PM     28

I'm a (heavy-hehehe) recreational winemaker, and my wine cellar reefer unit just died. It's a Whisperkool XL8000, rated to 2,000 cubic feet. Wondering if anybody on here has tried having theirs repaired locally.

The compressor, evaporator and fans run, but it acts like it has no coolant left in the coils--no hot air gets vented and the cellar does not cool. The manufacturer (Vinotechque) wants you to EXCHANGE broken units for new ones--for ONLY $2,500, so the SOBs RIVET the enclosure closed.

Anyone out there tried having a reefer tech break one of these open for repairs? Ever try to get parts? Any help is much appreciated!
