Noisy fan in Falcon wine cooler wc34

There appears to be two fans on the appliance. One is visible at the back right bottom corner and the other appears to be in behind the insulation approximately half way up at the rear of unit. How do you get in to inspect the fan behind the insulation as it is rather noisy

I am in need of a fan motor for my Danby Frig. Paret #JG50.DQ-10. Cannot find it anywhere. Suggestions?


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.

Noisy fan problem solved..... at least for now.


Not familiar with Danby or wine coolers, but I have messed with enough appliances including fridges. The same exact fan and motor are often used by different manufacturers and are "off the shelf" items you can get at most appliance parts suppliers. See if you can get any part numbers or info off the fan motor or from Danby's web site. Then see if a local supplier has one. If the fan has spade connectors, you may be able to swap it out without having to cut/splice wires.

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.

Noisy when running


condenser fan blades are cover with lint or the fan motor may be going out. Clean fan blade first before doing anything else. If noise stops after cleaning the fan blades; hooray! If not you might have to replace the fan motor itself. Test and re-check before taking other step(s)

Motor in wine frige is noisy???why


That motor is an evaporator fan motor. That noise occurs when the bushes in the motor start to wear. The motor is not in effect repairable but has to be replaced. Normally a 9 watt evaporator fan motor is installed into those wine coolers.

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.

Danby Silhouette DWC513BLS lower back fan noise.


Called Danby customer service. Requested repleacement part of lower fan unit. Located at bottom right on back of unit. Part was $6.68 plus shipping. Less than $10 total. At my door in 3 days. Plug and play piece that was easy to change. A very cheap fix and I hate to think what a service call would have been. Danby ph # is 800-263-2629.,

Noisy fan on DWC513BLS


The upper fan is mounted to a board inside the refrigerator near the back. To access it, you have to remove all of the shelves completely. Once you do that, you should be able to see the screws that hold the backing in place. Remove all of those, and pull the board out. The fan is mounted directly to the board.

When you replace the fan, I suggest you use rubber washers or grommets when you mount the new fan to the board. That will dampen the vibrations that otherwise are amplified by the board itself.
