Haier Complaint - Short-life wine cellar
I am having to throw out a 12-bottle wine cellar (Haier America Trading LLC -- model #HVT12ABS) made in China, which was bought and given me less than 2 years ago. After about a year of use it stopped working because it had blown a fuse. Both fuses in the machine are hard-wired, which is cheaper to do because no fuse connectors are required. It also means the fuses can't be replaced easily: you'd have to unsolder them, replace them, then resolder -- not something the ordinary customer can do. Haier customer support was nice but had no replacement to offer. This is yet another example of why not to buy "made in China."
