    compresser tank feels hot  does that mean it is running?

  • jas1245 May 22, 2009

    compresser is hot and has a small vibration but does not seem to be cycling. is this also a sign of failing compresser?

HI. i recommend checking the compressor for its operational value. if the compressor is not cycling at all, this will confirm compressor failuer. if it is cycling and, it is not cooling, this will confirm a low charge rate. it will need to be recharge in this case.

    That can be a sign of a running compressor but, you will need to observe the cycle. it should come on and off in a cycle. if the cycle is rapid, this will confirm a low charge level. if the cycle is consistent and only last for 3 minutes at a time, this will confirm compressor failure. the seals are bad.

    To clarify. If the compressor is running in a three minute interval and is not cooling, this compressor has failed. the internal seals have ruptured. check for any abnormal noises as well.

    Yes. the running motor has failed. you will need to replace your compressor in this case. this is the reason for the non cooling state.

SOURCE: Danby wine cooler is not getting cold. Fan is

Last one of these brought to me had lost it's charge. They are not very well built.

If your within 5 years, take it back to where you bought it. Unit's have a 5 year warranty on the compressor. If the compressor is bad, negotiate trade-in for a newer unit as you can buy a new, better unit for about the same amount of money.

The compressor needs to be tested to see if it's operational. This normally needs to be done by a service tec.

Danby DWC166BLSRH is not cooling. Fan is on and a clicking sound comes on, and compressor is very hot but will not cool.


I have the same problem. Mine probably needs refrigerant so it's a safe bet that yours does too. I'm going to order some and fix it, then update.

I have a frigidare #PLKU1267DSO kegbox. the compressor runs and gets hot but the box will not cet cold at all. the coils inside also have rust on them


Your keg box runs very similar to a Wine Cooler. I believe this can help you. The pressure for the freon and the steps for trouble shooting is he same. Give it a try.

Compressor runs and gets hot but does not cool unit


This product has been discontinued
i dont think many danby units are parts supported
more likely generic after market parts fitted by air con mechanics do the job
relay first might be a thematic one and an compressor motor fan relay
then check gas pressure
