Hello, I have a discontinued product "Avanti WC400YGB" wine refrigerator that has failed. Light bulb still works but nothing else, no cooling, no sounds, no moving parts, nothing. Appears to be completely dead. Wondering if there is a way for me to confirm that it is indeed a failed compressor and if so, where one might find a replacement or substitute? Would like to get a new fridge but unfortunately, the Avanti WC400YGB is not a standard size so can't find a new one that would fit. Thanks in advance for any assitance. Dave

More than likely its not your compressor..
normally on these units its the cold control (thermostat)

unplug the unit and unmount the thermostat..should have 2 wires and (maybe) a ground wire
unplug the 2 wires to the thermostat and splice them together safely...

reconnect power to the unit and see if it comes on and runs.....if so, you can probably
buy a universal refrigerator thermostat and your unit will work properly again.

if the unit doesn't come on let us know and we'll go into further discussion on testing other components.

From a previous post, dated 5/2010, someone used a Robertshaw 3030-702......BUT, no results if it actually worked out to the users satisfaction... :confused:
