This happens when the racks get too close to the evaporator. Or bottles. You can try to use hot water but usually you will need to buy new racks for the unit.

SOURCE: Marvel wine refrigerator running,but not cooling

If your unit runs but does not cool, you have a "sealed system" issue. Either you are low on refrigerant which would be evident by frost build-up near the area where the freon first enters the evaporator plate. (lower middle, then travels left) or the compressor has lost the ability to develop the necessary differential pressure. You do not want to run the unit like can **** in contaminants that will harm the compressor if you already haven't. You should contact a servicer to get it repaired. If you are still within the warranty period you should contact the dealer you got it from to initiate service.

SOURCE: Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool

If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

Upper & lower level does not cool. Temperature stays at 78 for lower level & 75 for upper. In attempting to set cooler temperature at 55 for top and 45 for lower it immediately reverts back to 78...

take shelves off. temp display unit in middle of shelf is where circuit board is for testing. pull middle unit forward and unscrew back panel. check lines for leak. color should look like a teal green. thats where your leak will be. Need tech. for the rest.......good luck!!!!

I have a client with a ten year old Marvel 24'' built in wine cooler, and the weater stripping is falling off. I can not find a model # anywhere. Derek

Dear Dereck,

Does your client have any idea how old the unit is? What do you mean by "weather stripping"? If you need a door gasket, all their 24" wide units (except ADA height) use the same gaskets. Part number 42241280 for the white and 42243906 for the black. You can order direct from the factory at 800-223-3900 (they are in EST in Michigan) should you need something else, describe the unit to their customer service personnel and they should be able to assist you. (Ask for Tim or Ron) - Subdriver

Noisey, loud shrill

If you just got the unit you should contact your dealer for warranty service. The only noise you should hear is a slight hum of the compressor and the soft blowing noise of the condenser fan. It sounds as if the evaporator fan on this unit is toast. That is also why is it having a hard time maintaining temperature. The temperature indicated is actual air temperature sensed so it will go up and down a couple of degrees above and below setpoint but when operating correctly the product temperature will be very stable.

If the servicer does not fully understand the new digital system, make sure he/she contacts the factory technical assistance rep. at 800-428-6644.

Marvel 61WC Wine Frige Won't Turn Off

Check he frost pattern on your evaporator. That is a plate sensing control and if the system developes a freon leak you will have frost on the beginning of the cycle (middle bottom and travels to the left, then across the top middle, then to the right and back to the lower middle) but not at the end where the thermsitor senses temperature. This will cause the unit to run almost continously no-matter what setting you have it on. If this is so, you need to have the leaking component repaired/replaced. You will not want to let your unit run like this since the longer you do..the more components will get damaged. If you are still with-in your warranty period, contact your dealer to initiate service. If not, contact any appliance repair shop you trust in your area. I hope this helps.

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.

Frost is building in wine cooler

Check the door seals to make sure they are sealing good this can cause high humidity. The unit also seems to be getting to cold check with another thermometer

If the unit was made after 2000, there is a solid state control in the back that you can test. If it was made before then, it will have capillary tube style thermsotat that you can test.
Made after 2000:
First, pull the unit out to access the back lower area and disconnect the power. Remove the lower backing to access the mechanical area. There will be 2-inch square back box with seven terminals and 4 dip switches. Disconnect the red and black wires from terminals # 3 and 2 respectively and connect them together (this bypasses the control). Plug the unit in...if it runs you need a part of or all parts of the control.

Made before 2000. With power disconnected, remove the front grill to get access to the thermostate (usually on the right side). It will have up to three wires connected to it and a sensing line. Leave the green (ground) wire as is (if connected), disconnect the other two wires and connect them together or run a jumper. Plug the unit in...if it runs then you need a new thermostat (only one part).

If the compressor does not run but the condenser fan does...something is wrong with the compressor.

You can also call the factory at 800-428-6644 and ask for technical assistance. They can assist you with further troubleshooting and/or finding a servicer near you. They should still have parts to repair that unit.
