Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

E4 Code C'mon, Danby! At least provide a key to the error codes! Our wine cooler reads "E4." What does that mean? Danby's manual does not provide any troubleshooting information. NOT HELPFUL.

Dear moriquenda
welcome to fixya.
Did you try resetting the system by pulling the plug and waiting 5 minutes then restarting the wine cooler?This may solve you problem.

Danby expects customers to call service and does not imagine the rest of the world being able to utilize these codes.
Closed minded, Huh?

E4 code on display


E3 & E4 error code means problem with the connectors for the fans to the middle separator shelf are put in the pathway of condensation. This causes them to get wet and rust.

Check the fan connectors by removing the two screws that hold the shelf in place and cafefully slide out fron the cooler. Just replaced the factory connectors with insulated bullet connectors.

Hope this helps; and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment.

Have a nice day and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a e4 code on my wine cooler


Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This is a common problem on this unit. E4 refers to a faulty control board failure. Unplug the unit for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it on. If this would not reset the error code, the only solution is to replace the board.

I wish i could have a better solution.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Code E4 on dandy wine cooler mod # dwc283bls


We had that problem in 2007, about 10 months after buying it from Costco. It was under warranty so the tech came and changed both sensors. It's worked fine until Feb 11. Now, the lower section ran so cold it froze some bottles. I am looking for a solution to that problem.

E4 message


Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet and wait 30 minutes before pluging back in. This should clear all settings on the cooler.

E4 Code


Between phone calls to danby and my neighbor, we fixed this problem. My E4 was on the left (lower chamber). If you have one on the right it is the upper chamber. The E4 is a defrost sensor that can be ordered from Danby's distributor (call Danby for the one in your area). The part and shipping were around $30.

If your E4 is on the left...

- remove the top shelves
- open the cover inside the cooler above the digital read outs (the top unscrews)
- inside is were the repacement sensor plugs in
- replace the one with the long cord
- run the sensor down the back to the lower chamber
- replace all covers and parts

If the E4 is on the right...

- remove the top shelves
- look on the right hand wall for a black plastic grate, the sensor is under this grate
- replace the sensor (simple plug and play)
- replace the racks.

Please pass this on, it was a ***** to deal with Danby and I nearly trashed the cooler out of sheer frustration.

Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
With an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works! Waiting for your reply!

If you are getting the E4 error code, try replacing the defrost sensor. The part might take forever to get to you, but we replaced the sensor on the wine cooler and it's working.

Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler - Error message E3 & E4


Is the compressor running? I don't know this unit, but know that if you are too warm that is the first thing to check. In reading about another unit that had a different problem, it was mentioned that there is a ciruit board. If it has relays on it then these are the most likely culprit. They are either not making contact or staying in contact too long... sometimes just tapping each relay usually a black plastic component will cause it to work intermittently..Not sure if you can get these but call the company help line at 1-800-263-2629.
