I purchased this wine cooler through Howdens, at considerable expense, only 3 years ago. It's now not working with the engine making a lot of noise (sounds like it's going to blow up).

I wouldn't recommend you buy one of these, others are also complaining about the unreliability of these machines.

This AVI 300mm wine cooler was installed by our kitchen supplier. The fan packed in within 3 months and was repaired (no thanks to AVI wanted us to re-package the item to be sent away for repair). After another few months the fan got noisy and eventually the unit gave up cooling altogether. The compressor and the coolant system were defunct. The LED failed after a couple of months, with only half of the number lighting up.
