Question about Avanti WCR5103SS Stainless Steel Wine Cooler
My Avanti wine cooler is very loud and sounds like a diesel engine. It still cools perfectly. Any thoughts?

My Name is Mike. I have the same unit. The compressor is not bad. Replace the start relay& overload on compressor.

I had the same problem, and found it to be as RonLew described. In our case it was the internal fan in the upper rear section of the fridge. Apparently, since it is mounted so close to the rear panel, the sound seems to amplify from the back. Anyway, a replacement fan was only $3.71 direct from Danby, but I did have to pay 7.99 for shipping. Also, there is a fair amount of disassembly and re-assembly needed, which might be challenging for those who don't typically make their own repairs. Once removed, the only thing I could find wrong with our old fan was that the shaft was very loose in the unit, which may have indicated a bad bearing.

I had this issue and it had all to do with ventilation. If the fridge is in too tight of a space without any type of air space this will be the result. I was able to cut into the cabinet behind the fridge and put a 18" x 18" grate that allowed air to move. Problem solved!

The issue could be the cold control, timer, wiring, or the compressor.
The temp control has to be closed for voltage to get to the timer. The timer then calls for the fans and compressor to run. The timer could have stalled after a defrost cycle or the cold control could not be sending voltage to the timer.
