The problem with the factory fan is that it is a sleeve-bearing fan. On average, a fan should operate for about 50,000 hours, which if it runs continuously would be over five years. However when the operating temperature rises or the fan is installed "not exactly" vertically, it will have shorter life.
I had to replace my fan two times withing two years since we bought the unit! Plus the stock fan becomes quite noisy after a couple of months of work.
With all of these problems I did some research for better fans and decided to purchase a ball-bearing fan to install it into the cooler by myself.
Ball-bearing fans on average outlast sleeve-bearing fans by 50 percent and produce less noise.
It's very important to purchase the right AC 115 Volts fan for this Danby wine cooler.
The original fan is Rullian Science RAL 1225S2 (120x120x25 mm in size, 100-125V AC, 0.09A)
The replacement model is Orion OA12AP-11-3TB which I got for $16.75 from Mouser Electronics (mouser.com). The replacement model is ball-bearing cooling fan with slightly higher/better parameters, which will help to cool down the wine cooler coil faster.
To replace the fan you need to tilt the wine cooler on the side and unscrew two small screws at the bottom that keep the original fan in place, remove one screw to the black box where the fan wires are attached and unplug these wires. Then you just need to replace it with the new fan and test that it works properly. If you never used Soldering Tool before you probably will be better off with getting some help from certified electrician - it still will be less expensive than getting this fan ordered every year from Danby.

Are you certain the evap fan is bad? If it is, you can access it through the freezer section. Either the floor, or the back wall of the freezer. The associated screws should be easily seen.

SOURCE: Danby DWC513BLS does not cool. Fan is on, but

Before you worry about where to get parts,you need to know what is wrong and what parts you will need. When a compressor does not run but the fan motor does, then either the compessor is bad (in which case you need refrigeration expertise) or the starter components have failed ( in which case you can replace. The two most common failed parts are the start relay or the overload (both attached to the compressor. Goodluck, Macgivor

The freezer not getting cold enough is defiantly due to the condenser fan motor not working. You would be best served to replace the fan motor with the correct part number though others will work, a small desk fan blowing in the back would work. As to the temperature issue in the refrigerator, you might have a bad t-stat.

Where could I buy the motor for a Monte Carlo 5KBR54 Kimberly (Tuscan Bronze) 2+4 Light, 5 Blade Ceiling Fan?


If you go to Monte carlo's website, www.montecarlofans.com, and in the upper right hand side of the screen there is a search bar. If you search for your model number you will realize that they discontinued that model of fan. They won't have a motor for a discontinued fan unless they use the same motor for another model fan (not likely), but I took the liberty to call and find out for sure. The answer is no, they are discontinued. Sorry, but looks like you need a new fan.

I have a Danby small refrigerator model DCR412BLS. It turns on but it doesn't cool (i can hear the motor running in the back). It the motor blown?


You need to check the Condenser coils, these are copper coils of tubing usually located on the back of the unit. They need to be free of all dust and grease to work at maximumefficiencyand it is recommended to clean them every 6 to 10 months. If those coils are already clean, the next thing to do is check the evaporator fan(The fan inside the unit). See if it's running. If it's not, check the coils behind it. If the coils are frozen up then you probably have to change out the fan motor.If they aren't frozen up then there may be a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor*. In order to legally reclaim, recharge, or test refrigerants you need a special certification2_bing.gif from the EPA. If you need to do so I recommend you call in a certified technician.
*To replace the compressor you need to reclaim and recharge the refrigerants from the system.

Help frig not cooling model # FRT21LR7A


Hello,

You have to replace the electrical components on the side of the compressor. The heat from the fan not running by the compressor more than likely has damaged them. These are a safety feature to save the compressor from damage when it overheats.

You can find the factory repair manual here. This will have all the part numbers and what you need to replace to take care of your refrigerator. The Top Freezer Refrigerator one will be about your machine. It covers all the FRT Models.

Thanks

Noisy Wine Fridge


The problem is likely with one of the two fans. A new fan is available from Danby (1-800-263-2629). My noisy fan is the condensor fan located at the bottom rear of the device. After removing the cooler from under the cabinet, the source of the noise was obvious. You will need to tell them whether it is the upper fan or lower fan. Leave the cooler upright for a few hours before you plug it in so that you do not damage the condenser. Price for the fan from Danby is $20.15 including shipping.

Check for obstructuions in the fan housing that may be hitting the fan blade, causing the noise and improper air flow.

Improper air flow will cause the uniot to overheat quickly and it will shut down on its high temperature limit switch.

You may also have a bad fan. Bad bearings will make a bad noise as well. Thios will cause the same symptoms described above.

Check for abstructions, if you can find one, remove it, if not replace the fan. You can usually reset the limit by simply turning off power and turning it back on after 10 min.
