replacement universal wine cooler thermostat for Avanti WC400YGB

9 posts in this topic

We have an Avanti WC400YGB wine cooler which completely stopped working. I opened the thermostat housing on the back of the unit and shorted the two leads (it is a 2 lead thermostat). It immediately came on. Of course, Avanti no longer stocks parts for this unit.

Does anyone know where I can buy a universal 2 lead thermostat? The numbers on it are: WPF14P-101-111 and 00.P4761A.Q The unit uses 1.7A at 110V. The thermostat is made by Foshan Tongbao. Thanks.

If you need to get it running on monday get  a temporary cold control Supco p/n SC1002..................that  will keep the vino cold............What is the temperatures you are looking for??  A ranco with the range   37F to 61f.....Do not know your  the location of your "crib" but look up  Armstrong  ( Nor-Mon on the west coast) see what you come up with......

Mine is attached on the back of the wine cooler(outside the unit). Unfortunately, mine has only 2 contacts. This has 3....unless one is a ground.

I don't have my digital camera with me. I left it at work. Will post picture later this evening, but it does look remarkably like the Magic Chef except it has only 2 contacts.

A cold thermostat with the following temps would be perfect: 41.9F to 66.2F. Does Ranco have a website? I couldn't find one. We are based in NYC.

I found a universal cold control (for an a/c unit) that operates between 52 and 93 deg with 6 deg differential. I would think that should work. We normally keep the wine at about 60-65 deg. The unit is Robertshaw 3030-702. There are several on eBay.

The thermostat unit itself is screwed via a bracket to the outside back of the unit so it will notbe seenunder the counter. Here is a photo of my existing control removed from the wine cooler. The bracket just screws to the outside back wall of the wine cooler. What do you think?
