Help replacing 6SBARE Display thermistor (Part No. 42246463).
I have an E4 code on my 6SBARE wine cooler. According to the manual this is a defective display thermistor. I purchased a replacement thermistor but I'm having a little difficulty trying to figure out the installation procedure. Do I have to completely pull the unit out from the build-in cabinet or can this be done without pulling the unit out?

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This is a common problem on this unit. E4 refers to a faulty control board failure. Unplug the unit for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it on. If this would not reset the error code, the only solution is to replace the board.
The 6SBAR-BS-G does not have a digital temperature display. Could you provide your correct model number? The 6SBARE-BS-G does have a digital display and has two temperature sensors.
One is used for control and the other is used for display. The are connected to the back of the display board by small white molex connectors. The smallest is for (two pin) is for the control and the three pin (although only two of the pins are used) is for the display.
The unit does not have to be removed for it's installed location to change the thermsitor, (temperature sensor), but you will want the power off when you swap it out.
You can order a new sensor from a few sites on line but the best thing to do is call the factory direct at 800-223-3900. The part number for the display thermsitor is 42246463 (the control thermsitor is 42246462). If your unit is more than a year old you may wish to replace both sensors while you are doing the work. If you are doing the work yourself, ask the customer service technician if he/she would email you the service manual as well.

Between phone calls to danby and my neighbor, we fixed this problem. My E4 was on the left (lower chamber). If you have one on the right it is the upper chamber. The E4 is a defrost sensor that can be ordered from Danby's distributor (call Danby for the one in your area). The part and shipping were around $30.
If your E4 is on the left...
- remove the top shelves
- open the cover inside the cooler above the digital read outs (the top unscrews)
- inside is were the repacement sensor plugs in
- replace the one with the long cord
- run the sensor down the back to the lower chamber
- replace all covers and parts
If the E4 is on the right...
- remove the top shelves
- look on the right hand wall for a black plastic grate, the sensor is under this grate
- replace the sensor (simple plug and play)
- replace the racks.
Please pass this on, it was a ***** to deal with Danby and I nearly trashed the cooler out of sheer frustration.
Is the compressor running? I don't know this unit, but know that if you are too warm that is the first thing to check. In reading about another unit that had a different problem, it was mentioned that there is a ciruit board. If it has relays on it then these are the most likely culprit. They are either not making contact or staying in contact too long... sometimes just tapping each relay usually a black plastic component will cause it to work intermittently..Not sure if you can get these but call the company help line at 1-800-263-2629.
