Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

I want the bottom to be reds and top to be whites

In this model the electric temp controls only let the bottom adjust for white wine temps and the top for reds. I drink more reds than whites and wanted the larger bottom section to house the red bottles and smaller top section for whites.

Anyone know how to manipulate the electric controls to change the temps?

I don't think you'll be able to do this without some modifications to the unit.  The wine cooler is designed to blow cold air into the bottom section, and the top section cools down by spillover of cool air flowing between the glass door and the temperature control panel.  
I guess if you could figure out a way to turn the panel that separates the top from the bottom you could make it work.  You'd have to switch the temperature sensing leads on the thermostat inside that panel(that would be pretty easy) and you'd probably want to flip the LED indicators so they read right-side-up.  The main issue would be that the screw holes for mounting that separator panel are all on the bottom, but when you flipped it, they would be on top with no holes in the walls to screw them into.  If you are willing to do that, you might be able to make it work as you would like.
Good Luck!

The wine cooler doesn't seem to be cooling light goes on when you open door so pretty sure it has electricity to it?

Can you hear it running? If there is a question, leave the door open and remain there until you hear it start. This may take up to 15 minutes.
What do you have the control on? Wine coolers ar not refrigerators. (White) wine typically served at cellar temp (around 50 to 55 degrees. My friend, please don't tell me you are chilling quality Reds! You are killing them.

Thanks for your interest in

Are red wines stored on the top or bottom of the Haier BC112G wine cooler? How about white wine? Have lost my owners manual and don't know where to put red wine when the temp is set cooler for white wine
is the link to your manual.Typically in a dual temperature zone wine cooler whites are stored in the bottom and reds on top as whites are better a little colder and the cold air will drop to the bottom of the unit.
Hope this helps!

Magic Chef Dual temp. wine Cooler #MCWBC77DZC

I suspect the cooler can only actually regulate one of those temperatures and the other one just drags along behind. Perhaps the weather is now warmer and the cooler has to keep the motor on longer to keep cool. The unregulated bottom temperature ends up cooler as a consequence.

Either that or the opposite effect is doing it.

The answer might be to find a 61 degree place in your house to keep the reds.

Haier wine cooler, how to operate? No manual.

If you just want to use the factory settings then push the red or white button depending on what you store the most.
Or you can set it yourself by pushing the red and white buttons together for about 3 seconds- the temp display will start flashing-then use the red and white buttons to set the desired temp-then push the set button
