Question about Danby DWC440 Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Too warm Hi- this Danby DWC440 wine cooler has been unplugged for a few months, and I plugged it in last night and it sounds as though the condenser is functioning, but the temp has not changed. The dial inside the top is turned to the far right, which appears to be high (the thicker part of the dial line...), light works, but no chill at all. Thx.

Re: too warm

Somehow the freon has leaked out, verified by compressor running long times without stopping.

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.

Unit has been operating in a wine closet and just stopped working it there anything I should check or clean?

does the 'closet' have any ventilation? if not the unit could have overheated and shut down or , worse, burned up the motor. any 'electric smell to it? under the unit, should be a fan, it that stopped it will not cool. look for lint build up under the unit or around any air vents. How old is the wine cooler? can you get any info from the Wine cooler's mfg web site? -

Avanti WC42, stopped working. Compressor (ZEL GVY40AD) is warm and tube going to radiator is very cold. Digital dash has been blinking with err for a few months but was cooling ok.


As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
