Question about GE PWR04FANBB Wine Cooler

Does not cool. Compressor Hot

My GE wine cooler, model PWR04FANABB, suddenly stop cooling. The compressor is hot and I hear a periodic clicking noise which I assume is the overheat protection?

I've tried unplugging it for 8 hours and plugging it in again. Same issue.

Sounds like the compressor starting relay. This should be available from from most appliance parts retailers that carry refrigeration parts. It is probably a plug-in relay which is easy to replace. PULL THE PLUG UNTIL YOU GET IT! Constant cycling on the thermal protector will damage the unit.

My vinotemp vt60 starts cooling then stops


I sounds to me like the compressor is overheating. There is an overload on the compressor itself. Follow the wires where they go into the compressor. There will be a black wire going from the power cord to the overload. These can be purchased at appliance parts stores. Make sure there is no dirt build up on condenser coils or a kink in the tubing.

Wine fridge not cooling


It is normal for a compressor to be hot to the touch, but not super hot. clicking noise sounds like the relay located on the compressor terminals is bad. Hope this helps

Making clicking sound motor gets hot but not cooling


Your PTC relay on the compressor is bad needs to be replaced.

First be sure to unplug cooler. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

Loud noise


The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck

Motor very hot; not cooling


If the compressor is hot it is possible that it is short cycling. Make sure the compressor is running and that the condenser fan motor is running if air cooled.

MCWC30MCG stopped cooling


Handy hubby,
welcome to Fixya,
It sounds like the compressor!
Not worth replacing this very expensive part.


Was it so hot you could not keep your hand on the compressor?
If yes then it's most likely your compressor.
Happy to be of assistance.
Sorry about your lose
Huuum

Brand new out of box and will not cool - after 12 hours - compressor is very hot ?


First question is, are there any fans that are built in that are not running? next is there may be no freon in the unit. Ive seen new stuff from the factory have no freon inside. feel the suction line (the bigger one) from the compressor. It should be cool. The discharge line (smal one) should be hot.

U-Line no longer cooling


This sounds like the thermostat is the problem. I wouldsuggest touching the compressor at the back of the unit to see if it is hot or cold. If it is hot then you have probably have power down to the compressor, if it is cold you could (if capable) bypass the thermostat to see if it kicks in. Hope this helps.
