Noise coming from upper back fan of my danby wine cooler


You'll need to take the defective fan out and take it to some type of hvac distributor in your area. Fan blades generally come off of the shaft of the motor by one or two allen screws.

What type of noise is it making?

You may also consider the motor. If the noise isn't caused by the fan blade hitting something when it spins the noise could be coming from the motor. For that type of unit, the motors are very small and only have two wires to connect them and usually a very small plug. If not you'd only need two wirenuts and some electrical tape. It's just very important when you replace the fan that you match the voltz, hertz, rotation, and hp.

I am in need of a fan motor for my Danby Frig. Paret #JG50.DQ-10. Cannot find it anywhere. Suggestions?


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.

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.

My 12 bottle cooler is still cooling OK but it is making a strange loud throbbing or pulsating noise. Is there something I can do to stop this noise?


Mine is too. It\'s the fans they are very cheap and I don\'t think you can find a replacement for them. It\'s the usual stuff made in China that we Americans buy.

Hi, I have a WCR524SDZD wine chiller and the fan has started to make noises, and also the temperatures seem to not drop to the temperatures we expect. Where can I get a new fan? or parts for this...


your unit uses a generic fan motor that a lot of refrigerators ect.. use. If you take the fan to a local shop that sells refigerators they will match up one for you. Avanti's phone number is 1 800 220 5570. good luck

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.

the motor could be defective or it could be low o refrigerant causing the pressure switch to not kick on the fan. Could even be wires have come loose from the fan. If the fan does not work it won't cool. however it mould most likely cosy you more to fix if you take it to a shop to have it repaired if you have the tools to test it with I can help you so let me know if you have a test meter volt ohm meter and I can tell you how to test the system.
