My old WhisperKool failed. $1,400 just to replace the compressor for 200 bottles.
Have been offered a Transtherm Ermitage of the same capacity for $1,000. It's 9 years old, owner says it's only been used for a "few months" and have been sitting unused in a clean, contained environment for years. Apparently, they built a wine cellar and never used the cabinets again. Super hard to find replacement cost on these compressors. I called IWA wine and they couldn't quote me a price.
1. Any Transtherm owners out there and have you replaced your compressor?
2. Who services these babies?
3. Anyone know if these things and the freon go bad sitting around? Not sure if it's like a car that needs to be driven now and again to keep the valves and seals working.
