Question about Danby DWC310BL Wine Cooler

Open Question

The wine cooler sounds like a dying cow - we suspect it is the compressor but have been told that it is not worth fixing if it is. Does this mean that it costs more than it is worth to fix it? Is there another problem it could be?

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.

SOURCE: wine cooler makes noise and runs hot

The price looks fine for my area its about a 3 hour job done properly. you should consider a new wine cooler and cut your losses because if their only replacing the compressor they should be replacing the cap tube and liquid drier if the cap tube is not replaced could be a waste of money

SOURCE: we have a danby dwc283bls wine cooler that no

that's always a possibility but not always the case. The thermostat may not be cycling correctly or set wrong. The condenser could be dirty or if there is a fan, it may not be running. Freeze ups can also cause an "Out of temp." condition. Check it out.

Sounds like the unit may have lost the refrigeration charge and or there is a problem with the compressor. Check your warranty depending how long you have own the unit it may be covered.

A manual can be downloaded from the following site.

You will need a new fan motor.
A technician can fix that for about $250

Not colling


Check the back to see if the compressor is running or just really hot. If it is not running it could be a thermostat issue, but if it is hot and not running, that means your compressor has problems and will need to be replaced.

My Haier Wine Cooler HVFM30A the compressor or motor over heated and stop working. Can I replace it?


A new compressor for that unit from Sears parts direct costs $206.
The unit itself is worth around $233 and is no longer in production.

After you pay someone to replace the compressor you'll have spent way more than it is worth.
Your best bet is to get a new wine cooler.

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?


Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
THERMOSTAT FAILURE CHECK:
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
COMPRESSOR FAILURE CHECK:
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
REFRIGERANT LEAK CHECK:
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

I have a magic chef wine cooler model mcwc16mcg justs keeping clicking not cold anymore , can this be fixed


A clicking sound every few minutes usually means the compressor is going off on overload when trying to start. This could mean the start parts are bad, or the compressor went bad.

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
