Question about Danby DKC645BLS Compact Beverage Cooler
I have a Marvel outdoor Kegerator, that was running non-stop until it actually froze the keg. I figured that it was a defective thermostat so I pulled the unit out and found that a rat had partially chewed through a grey 22/2 wire that was running up the back of the unit (I assumed to a thermostat). I figured that this was my problem and I cut and reattached the wires with wire nuts and waited for the keg to get back to temperature and the fan to cycle off. It was a hot day and the fan never really did cycle off but for a maybe 30 seconds at a time and then restart. I then made the stupid mistake of trying to reconnect the wires with something more weatherproof and forgot to unplug the unit. I let go of the black and red lead (22/2 wire) and it shorted out when it hit the condensor coil. The fan shut off and it popped the GFI. I cut and restripped the wire but I have not been able to get the fan started again. There is power to the unit and it sounds like the condensor is working. It even sounds like it is trying to start the fan and then it clicks near the condensor and nothing happens.
What should I do?
Yes, replacing the whole board is usually what is done unless you can narrow down the exact component that has burnt out or became disconnected. Let me know how this all turns out.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Unfortunately, no wiring diagram hence could not be more specific. Still based on your description, it would most likely be that the relay contacts are burned / melted off. The clicking is significant as it indicates the relay is activating but if the internal contacts are not engaging, then there would be no voltage supplid to the fan through the red & black wires hence fan would not spin. The relay would be located on the contoller board.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
