    My Whirlpool refrigerator (Model: ED25RFXFW01, Serial: SJ2958667, Date: 07/1999) has similar problem. Its inside lights work fine, the fan can start running after waiting a long time, but the compressor doesn't start. The problem started about two weeks ago when I found all frozen food were melted and refrig stopped working. I tried to change both the freezer and refrigerator temperature level, it started working again. Five days later, it did the same thing again. Now, after another 3 days the compressor doesn't start at all. I did check the "Starter" attached on the compressor according to the Expert suggestion, and I don't hear any rattle sound when I shake it. I don't know what else I should check.



    Please help and send me an email zcui@yahoo.com if possible.

Wine Enthusiast Silent Wine Refrigerator is making a loud buzzing/whirring noise.


Since this unit doesn't use a compressor, the only moving parts are the whisper fans inside of it that circulate the air. One of those fans may be going bad. If you are handy you can remove the back to see if all the fans are working but your best bet is to use the one year warranty and have a qualified techncian figure it out.

More than likely it is the temp control (thermostat) it is what controls the on and off

I am looking for the cooling fan for a Danby Silhouette DWC512BL-1 wine cooler. A google link took me to your site but I don't see any links to Danby parts.


As I have worked on a few ELECTROLUX wine coolers and they do not have a cooling fan for the inside of the unit are you speaking of the one under and in back of your cooler if so then it is a condenser fan motor it will be 110v and your local appliance store should be able to order one close enough to work in design and rotation of it. Hope this helps.

MCWC52B wine cooler stopped cooling, compressor hot


Turn it off and place a small electric fan by compressor to cool it down.
When you turn it back on, see if you hear a clicking noise. This would indicate starting components need checking.

Wine cooler just stopped working. light will come


Try disconnecting all power to the unit for about 10 mins, and turn it back on to see if the compressor will kick in. Also check your temp settings and make sure they are properly set. If that doesnt work, you might have a dead compressor which a tech can look at and verify.

Wine Enthusiast 16-bottle thermoelectric wine refrigerator DEAD


usually bad power supply, if the cooling fan isn't running either. These are horribly inefficient coolers that use a lot of power to accomplish little cooling. The power supplies are quite notorious to burn up.

If your supply is 12vdc output, you might be able to replace it with a supply from radio shack. dont use a battery charger though.

Kitchenaid Wine Cellar-model # KUWS2246EBLO Power on switch does not turn on cooling compressor. Lite will come on.


Try tapping on the thermostat it is probably sticking.
If it comes on then you will need to replace the thermostat.
Check the start relay on the compressor.
Check the fan motor on the compressor is it running?
Clean lint from underneath on the condensing coil.
