No I just installed the new CB and that did the trick.

Insurance had me cut the power cord and return it to them before they would reimburse me the purchase price. I was going to buy a new unit but I found an old fridge and cut the power cord from that one and attached it to my unit and installed the new CB and my unit is working as good as new. No more water collecting in the back and no more pooling on the bottom.

I saw some SC on Amazon a while back for $15, meant to buy a couple thanks for the reminder. I actually have one and that I bought and have had it for a long time. Just ordered another oen $13. Also Neptune cigar has them for 12.95 ea. You will have to sit on a shelf since their not slotted to be a perfect fit for the cooler.u what @BOSSTANK posted looks better doesn’t say it’s SC. May order one of thoses as well.

Have the Whynter CHC-251S, my question is this, I was always told that the best temperature/humidity is 70/70. So with these cigar coolerators why does Whynter set them so they start to cool at 66 instead of letting the cooling process begin at 70.

While the 70/70 axiom still circulates, most experienced cigarists, at least around here, no longer subscribe to it. 70F and under is best for avoiding beetle outbreaks, and 66F is just fine. For RH, 65% is most commonly recommended on Puff now (some even drop down to 60%-62%). 70% RH tends to cause burn problems and bitterness.

I have the wynter ch251s..thankfully I'm not having issues. I keep mine at 65/65 with 4 x 360 gram bovedas. It appears rock solid and has for sometime, though methinks I'll he checking the back for issues now! I have at least 8 inches of unobstructed air space around the back top and sides, in my youth I worked with appliances and found insufficient air circulation to be the cause of many issues with refrigeration..not sure that applies here per se..

Good day, first time post. Hopefully you gentlemen with more electrical experience can lend some advice. My CHC-251S gets way too cool (set at 66, drops consistently to mid 50s). I'm in Canada and don't really need the cooling function of the unit. Looking at the back of the control board, if I simply unplug NTC2, FAN1, and FAN2, will that turn everything off other then the interior fan for circulation, or am I risking over heating something in the unit or worse? Attached is a picture with what I'm thinking of doing. Thanks
