Danby Wine Cooler Chatter

About ever 20 minutes or so the wine cooler makes a chattering sound for just a second or two. It seems to be working fine however the noise is a nuisance.

OR....your just unlucky, maybe the compressor has dropped a spring inside and when it shuts off it is vibrating a lot more than normal, this will not affect the operation but will probably annoy you for the next 10 years, unless of course you change out the compressor, which is not a job you can do without special tools and knowledge. if this is the case you only have two choices, ignore the problem or call a repair man and spend a pile of money.

The compressor has rubber grommets that isolate/insolate it from metal on metal. What is happening is that one of these has worn through and now when the compressor kick in or out it shake which is normal but gives you that metal on metal clanking which is not normal. Look at the back and see where the compressor is held inplace by pins you will see rubber donuts/grommets. One or more are wore out. You can probably find some on a unit at a salvage yard on a small fridge and you may be able to buy some an appliance supply warehouse....

Sounds like the compressor is frozen - sound you hear is the clixon a special sort of resettable fuse on compressors. When they do not start or overheat, it kills the power - when it cools power is restored until it reheats again and .......................

Use ammeter to confirm this - it will show a much greater than normal current draw.

Danby wine fridge making noise


If I checked out the right video it sounds like a fan motor. After a fan motor heats up and with age the fan will leak a little oil, the oil will become to thin and not cote the bearings well enough. It sounds like the fan trying to start back up after stoping. I would track down the fan motor and replace it.

My Danby wine cooler fan is making a horrendous noise - it sounds like it's trying to start up and then it gives up. I hav tried tightening the housing screws but this works for a couple of minutes and...


Where is the noise coming from? Check the fan at the back of the upper compartment. They seem to be defective and die after about 3 years (just outside of warranty... how convenient). I'm dealing with the same issue now. (As search on the internet indicates that we're not alone!) When its making that noise, try pressing the back plate around the little fan and see if it changes the noise.

Hi, could be faulty thermostat, can you check compressor, is compressor running (working), listen to compressor for clicking sound, unplug it(switched off) for about 20 minutes, replug and let it run (work) for another 20 mins. see if temp. drops, what about temp. inside bottle (wine) cooler, is it 98 or colder, more info. could be valuable. check thermostat, check to see if compressor operates, if cooler temp. 98. remove you products, to another cooler, call mechanic.
