The switch may have failed and therefore requires replacement.

SOURCE: how to reset the temperature on the danby silhouette wine refrigerator

This happened to me, I found that the cooler would not go below 70 degrees because the cooler had lost its coolant or wouldn't work. I do not know, but as it was under warranty, an appliance repairman came and said that it was worth fixing, so it was replaced with in a week. Normally you would just hole the button in until the desired temperature is selected. Once released the cooler would attempt to set this temperature. If it is not, then I suspect it too is broken. Good luck.

Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
With an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works! Waiting for your reply!
Please remember to leave a rating when you are done!
Thank You huuum

SOURCE: wine cooler noise

I wrote up a blog entry for a minor modification we made to our Danby wine refrigerator to silence noise from the upper fan:

http://www.adrianmccarthy.com/blog/?p=79

You can find quieter versions of the fan with the same specs at big computer parts stores (for the PC builders who want quiet computers). The one we got cost less than $20. We also added rubber spacers so that the fan vibration isn't amplified by back panel of the fridge (which otherwise acts like a soundboard). Made a huge difference.

Even with the fix, though, I wouldn't ever recommend the Danby models. Their noisy, and we've had multiple breakdowns in five years. The only authorized repair shop in our area has lousy customer service and high prices.

We just received our Danby 35 bottle wine fridge with digital temperature display, and cannot turn off the light.


Hello,
I found the users manual for your Danby! You have erroneously called it a 35 bottle unit, when in fact it is a 50 bottle unit. Click HERE for you manual. In the manual, it says you can use the light manually or automatically. There appears to be a switch on the bottom of the unit. I suggest the manufacturers manual for it holds a great deal of information that can be of assistance in the future, as this is a discontinued model
Good Luck, and I hope this is the answer you are seeking. Please rate and comment, Thank You Joe

Unit does not get cool. I can hear the compressor kick on, but it goes off about 15 seconds later. After a minute or so it goes on again only to shut off again


:

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

Thank you for using fixya

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.
