We'd like to stop the True T-49 fans from running all the time
Another True commercial frig that we have does not run the fans when the cooling is not active - we run the frig at much higher temperatures for wine instead of food. How can we make the T-49 fans stop running all the time?

It sounds like it is in the correct temperature range. You may ned to adjust the temperature to a lower setting. °C°F Wine Style

is the unit running? are the fans running? if the fans are running then check to see if the comp is running. If the comp is running you have a more serious issue. if its not or nothing is running im suspecting a control issue
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.
purpose of a wine cooler is to store wines at their proper temperatures in a
proper manner. Wine coolers are set to
higher temperature ranges than other systems simply because wine should not be
kept as cool as other beverages.
Check the condenser coil is clear and clean, and thermostat set about 2 or 3. Also check the fan is running with door closed, and no food is too close to the top stopping the airflow over the evaporator. It may be as simple as a blocked drain backing up - check the drain tube next time it defrosts.
The defrost termination/ fan
delay control is a temperature-activated, single pole-double throw
switch. ). The control is wired into the
refrigeration circuit. The control is located high
on the evaporator where the frost is likely to clear last. The function
of this temperature-activated switch is to terminate defrost when the
evaporator coil has been defrosted, and to delay the evaporator fans
from coming on immediately after defrost. The coil must reach a temperature of 25* F. for the fan delay to close allowing the fans to operate.
Turn the temperature dial to the lowest temperature setting. Wait 24 hours for the wine cooler to reach the desired temperature. Also, turn the wine cooler off and inspect the fan. If the fan if it's running or not.
Lastly, check the compressor.
These are the areas that could make your wine cooler stop cooling; the temperatue settings (Thermostat), then Fan and the compressor.
Check these three areas and let me have a feed back.
