Bought this wine cooler and thought it would be perfect. Thermoelectric is an energy saver, it was supposed to be quiet (although online reviews told us it wasn't "whisper quiet") and with the dual zones, we could store reds & whites at the appropriate temps. But hubby was happy, so I was happy. . . Then we realized that it never stopped running. Contacted EdgeStar, they told us this was normal for the unit. The sound got louder. The smell started. EdgeStar told us this was typical for the "breaking in" period and we should move the unit to a place where it had more room (as opposed to the 2" of clearance it had, which was twice the required amount). The burning smell got so bad that I kept unplugging it. Finally, it died, after only 4 months. EdgeStar spent 6 months jerking us around, sending out various circuit boards (none of which worked), then told us we were out of luck because the unit was out of warranty. Do NOT buy this unit! At this point, I'm looking for a replacement, but don't even trust EdgeStar as a manufacturer anymore.
