Is it because your keypad not functioning, meaning does the number change when you press the arrow up or down? Or when you set it, (let's say 12 Cel.) it does not reach down to that temperature. Then it could be either it's a sealed system problem( leaking refrigerant or under charge if it's a new unit). Or it could be a control problem( electronic control or sensor)

SOURCE: Danby Silhouette Wine cooler won't

Hi sooner84,
I really like the Danby wine coolers, they are usually nice products. As far as your problem, I would first try to find out where the main problem area is. To do that first make sure that your compressor is running. If the compressor is running and it is not cooling then you may have a freon charge issue. Thats not to say that you can just put some more freon in and it is fixed, You would have a leak in your sealed system and you would most likely still have warranty coverage for that. Most Danby products carry a 5 year sealed system warranty. That would include your compressor.
If the compressor is not running then you would know that you have a compressor issue. Either the relay overload on the compressor would need to be replaced or the compressor itself was bad. You can buy relay kits for about $30.00 and intall them easily with very little experiance.
Next if the compressor is doing its thing and trying to cool you could have a fan not blowing air properly. either a condenser or evaporator fan may have stopped. If you find one not working then chances are you just need a fan. If the fans are blowing and the compressor is working then you would just have a defrost problem. In that case you would just need to defrost then check for bad parts, either a defrost heater, defrost thermostat or a defrost timer. Most of the Danby products have a defrost control board, that board willl contorl the defrost, the temperature, and the fans. If the board was cheap I would say just put one on and see if it fixed the problem, but they are around $145.00.
The most important thing for you would be to make sure you are not going to do something that would void your warranty. Free service is always the best. Good luck to you and send some wine my way, I make lots of different types. from grapes, strawberrys, muskedyne, etc.... mca0824@aol.com

Are you sure you want frozen champagne? Or do you mean 7 degree C (not minus 7).

I followed the advice of Ancient Bob and located the heat shrinked fuse as he described. I removed it from the circuit board using a very small tipped soldering iron and repaced it with an inline fuse holder with about 1" leads(Radio Shack or Auto Parts store) and carefully soldered it in place on the circuit board. This makes a fuse replacement a snap if necessary later..I used a 5A 250V fuse as original. It has been running fine for two weeks now, I think the fuse in question blows if the ambient temperature gets too high in the room-a design defect (my opinion). As Ancient Bob said, the total cost was about six dollars icluding 3 extra fuses. Care must be taken when removing the solder, or resoldering the circuit board. It's not complicated but must not be sloppy. After removing the original fuse I drilled out the circuit board fuse holes (they may fill with solder as a byproduct of removing the fuse) with a tiny drill bit to make the installation of the inline fuse neat and easy. Good Luck

SOURCE: E4 Code

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.

What could cause the cooler to freeze other than a faulty thermostat?


Improper refrigerant charge. Its critical and measures coil temp and not cabinet temp. If you did add gas that is the answer. Take out all the gas, put vacuum pump on it, then weigh in exactly in ounces the correct charge, its listed on the spec. tag. Hope this helps and good luck.

Vinotemp wine cooler just stop working.


Ok check the power supply input. Assume you have do e that and all ok. More than likely it could be a thermostat or compressor gas leakage. Has the compressor been running more than usual before it gave up working. Check for rust on the internal coils as sometimes they fail. Depending on what you paid for the wine cooler it may be cheaper to simply replace it. Can highly recommend Delongi 145
litre bar fridge, after replacing several cheaper brands and it is very reliable and cools really well though they are not at the cheap end of the market. You get what you pay for with appliances. Best of luck resolving the problem but if the wine cooler no longer is getting cold but the compressor continues to run, you can bet that it's out if gas from a leak in the internal pipe work and generally not worth attempting to either locate and or repair.

How hard is it to add freon to a wine cooler?


Don't attempt it, need special equipment, seek additional quotes but if it's leaking them there is a gas loss issue. You should never need to add gas to a fridge that is sealed in the factory.
Askntechnician why it needs a gas top up? It must be leaking from the pipe work. Adding gas wont solve the problem, you need to find the sauce of the leak to remedy the problem longer term.

The cooling is not sufficient. I am running the fridge at the maximum and yet every thing is defrosting in the freezer. In the fridge part also the problem is the same.


thermostat defective/Short of gas/chocked/no gas.
1. Thermostat is malfunctioned-Replace it. 2. Check amps of the fridge if run amps is less than as specified, it's gas leak. 3. Keep your arm on condenser line. If it's warm, gas is there. Check slight whistling sound in freezer. If not system chocked.
For gas leak find leak and arrest it. Then vacuum and do gas charging.
For chocked system, release all gas and flush out the system. Replace filter drier and vacuum and do gas charging. Helpful?

I have a "the wine enthusiast" wine cooler and it's a 2001 model 2720216, 16 bottle storage, and it is not cooling the temperature stays at 80 degrees can it be fix or just get rid of it and buy a new one?


At that temp I'm sorry to say sounds like the compressor is shot or all the gas has leaked out. A service call is about $100.00 to ring the door bell and then add about $500.00-600.00 for a compressor and or 300.00 if the coil is bad. It might be better to get a new box with a warranty. Best of luck!
