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.

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

Temperature in both upper and lower zones will not go lower than 50F. Cooler has 3 bottles of wine. Is there away to recharge with coolant/clean fans...? Thank you


The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor.

Before cleaning the condenser coils, unplug the refrigerator to avoid a shock hazard.

Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.

Unit has been operating in a wine closet and just stopped working it there anything I should check or clean? swaney167@aol.com


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? www.danby.com/products/wine__beverages -

Danby DWC283BLS has condensation inside the unit.


wine coolers have no means of draining the condensate inside them,use silica gel(1/2 pint)to keep the inside dry(remember to dry it out when condensate happens again)

We have a danby dwc283bls wine cooler that no longer cools, and the compressor gets warm (above normal) does it need to be recharged


that's always a possibility but not always the case. The thermostat may not be cycling correctly or set wrong. The condenser could be dirty or if there is a fan, it may not be running. Freeze ups can also cause an "Out of temp." condition. Check it out.

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.
