Question about Danby DWC513BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Wine cooler noise

We bought our house with a danby silhouette wine cooler installed in our kitchen. About 50% of the time it makes a very loud humming noise and then finally quiets down for a few minutes before it starts up again. We don't have a users manual and have been unable to diagnose or fix the problem. Any ideas? Thanks, Heather

Same problem. Called Danby and they have a back order until June!!!!! Talk about customer service.

    I have a Danby DWC513BLS Wine Cooler. I purchased it about 2 1/2 years ago and it has been great until now. I think one of the fans has gone out as it makes a terrible whining sound and it looks like the square fan at the bottom stops rotating.

    We purchased a used Danby Sillouette DWC513BLS and it makes a horrible whinning noise! It hardly ever stops, but sometimes the noise is louder and worse than other times. It seems like it is worse as it starts up and after it's been running for awhile, it gets a little less. Also, the temps don't seem to stay very consistent. We set for our desired temperatures and it just runs and gets very cold. Would that be the thermostat?

    Anyway, can one contact Danby directly for parts? If this unit is repairable, I'd love to incorporate it into my sort of make shift kitchen redo I have planned... but can't do it if's so noisy!

    Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.

I am in need of a fan motor for my Danby Frig. Paret #JG50.DQ-10. Cannot find it anywhere. Suggestions?


The problem with the factory fan is that it is a sleeve-bearing fan. On average, a fan should operate for about 50,000 hours, which if it runs continuously would be over five years. However when the operating temperature rises or the fan is installed "not exactly" vertically, it will have shorter life.
I had to replace my fan two times withing two years since we bought the unit! Plus the stock fan becomes quite noisy after a couple of months of work.
With all of these problems I did some research for better fans and decided to purchase a ball-bearing fan to install it into the cooler by myself.
Ball-bearing fans on average outlast sleeve-bearing fans by 50 percent and produce less noise.
It's very important to purchase the right AC 115 Volts fan for this Danby wine cooler.
The original fan is Rullian Science RAL 1225S2 (120x120x25 mm in size, 100-125V AC, 0.09A)
The replacement model is Orion OA12AP-11-3TB which I got for $16.75 from Mouser Electronics (mouser.com). The replacement model is ball-bearing cooling fan with slightly higher/better parameters, which will help to cool down the wine cooler coil faster.
To replace the fan you need to tilt the wine cooler on the side and unscrew two small screws at the bottom that keep the original fan in place, remove one screw to the black box where the fan wires are attached and unplug these wires. Then you just need to replace it with the new fan and test that it works properly. If you never used Soldering Tool before you probably will be better off with getting some help from certified electrician - it still will be less expensive than getting this fan ordered every year from Danby.

My wine cooler is making a loud humming noise. It still cools fine, but you can hear it throughout the house now.


possibly the compressor is running harder due to either being low on freon or the condensor coils are dirty not letting the heat to be released causing the the compressor itself to overheat.

Cannot get Danby Silhouette 166 dual wine cooler to change temperature. It stays at 70 (both upper and lower). Can you help. Just bought used brought it home and it won't cool.


I also just brought home a used Danby Silhouette 166-bottle wine fridge and it is not cooling. Did you have someone come look at yours and did you get it fixed?

I am looking for the cooling fan for a Danby Silhouette DWC512BL-1 wine cooler. A google link took me to your site but I don't see any links to Danby parts.


As I have worked on a few ELECTROLUX wine coolers and they do not have a cooling fan for the inside of the unit are you speaking of the one under and in back of your cooler if so then it is a condenser fan motor it will be 110v and your local appliance store should be able to order one close enough to work in design and rotation of it. Hope this helps.
