Danby wine cooler model dwc172bl thermostat replacement

I've just received a new thermostat for my wine cooler but cannot remove the old one as the thermocouple cannot be pulled out. How is this removed and/or how do I get to where-ever it might be attached?
Thanks for the help.

Once I figured out there were black plastic caps covering the screws holding the inside back panel in place, it was an easy fix. The cooler is now up and running. Thank you for giving me the $10 incentive to figure it out myself.

Magic chef wine cooler model #MCWC45A Serial # 0902mcwc45a09720. I was advised to replace temp control part #WDF18A-L. I have the part but i cant seem to find the part in the unit. i dont see it in the...


The temperature control is normally in the inside top of the unit, sometimes at the back, sometimes at the front.

If you are competent with electrics its a fairly easy repair, only 2 wires and the ground. Do not confuse the interior light wires with the thermostat.

Switch off and unplug before starting work

Undo the screw holding the internal light, remove the cover

Knob generally pulls off or may have a small screw under the knob cap, then find how the casing is fixed, remove the casing the thermostat is fixed either with 2 screws or 1 center knut, be careful when removing the capilliary (looks like a thick silver wire) don't damage it you really will not like the smell.

Replace exactly as removed, takes lots of care and patience, use your cellphone to take images for reference if your not certain

Received apparent error message "E3" for upper

E3 is a fan error. This is usually caused by poor connection to the fan. Remove all connectors and reinstall assuring tight connection. This should remedy it unless the fan is bad, which is very rare!

Want come on

The thermostat may be bad. Remove and test it with an ohmeter. If there is no continuity while the thermostat knob is turned all the way to the colder setting; the thermostat is obviously bad.

Wine fridge thermostat

No pictures, the new one goes in the same as the old one comes out. You have 2 screws on the bottom of the evaporator that holds the sensor in place. Then the sensor runs thru the bottom toward the back.As you remove the old one jus put the new one in the same way.

Replaced control on u-line 75WC wine cooler now runs constantly

If the sensor of the thermostat is not on the evaporator plate then yes the thermostat will never be satisfied. Because it is not reading air temp only the evaporator plates temp. should be clamped onto the bottom of plate.

Need to relace thermostat on kitchen aid wine cooler kuws246ebl2

Hi, The silver thing is not a wire. It is the sensor tube for the thermostat. The new thermostat will come with the sensor. Be sure and notice how and where the sensor goes in the wall. I hope this helps

Refrigerator makes a click sound now and again like its supposed to cool things down but not cold air. Still power going to it and the thermostat still has power. Unit is a Haiet BC-111.


The starter on your compressor decided to go on strike. Fire it and get a new one. There's a universal starter I use all the time... it's a "PRO41". You can get one online or at a local appliance parts retailer.

Super easy to install. Pull the unit out and UNPLUG IT. Now remove the panel that's covering the compressor. On the left side of the compressor, you'll see the starter assy. (it may be under a plastic cover---> remove that).

Now just pry the old starter off and hook up the new one. Just line the pins up and press it on! That's it... fridge fixed.

Rate this solution, will ya? Show me some Expert (freebie) love.
