Hi sooner84,
I really like the Danby wine coolers, they are usually nice products. As far as your problem, I would first try to find out where the main problem area is. To do that first make sure that your compressor is running. If the compressor is running and it is not cooling then you may have a freon charge issue. Thats not to say that you can just put some more freon in and it is fixed, You would have a leak in your sealed system and you would most likely still have warranty coverage for that. Most Danby products carry a 5 year sealed system warranty. That would include your compressor.
If the compressor is not running then you would know that you have a compressor issue. Either the relay overload on the compressor would need to be replaced or the compressor itself was bad. You can buy relay kits for about $30.00 and intall them easily with very little experiance.
Next if the compressor is doing its thing and trying to cool you could have a fan not blowing air properly. either a condenser or evaporator fan may have stopped. If you find one not working then chances are you just need a fan. If the fans are blowing and the compressor is working then you would just have a defrost problem. In that case you would just need to defrost then check for bad parts, either a defrost heater, defrost thermostat or a defrost timer. Most of the Danby products have a defrost control board, that board willl contorl the defrost, the temperature, and the fans. If the board was cheap I would say just put one on and see if it fixed the problem, but they are around $145.00.
The most important thing for you would be to make sure you are not going to do something that would void your warranty. Free service is always the best. Good luck to you and send some wine my way, I make lots of different types. from grapes, strawberrys, muskedyne, etc.... mca0824@aol.com

Cooling - not


Have a heating/air conditioning person check the freon level to see if it needs to be refilled. Most modern day things that cool use freon gas to cool. It could be that it needs to be flushed and refilled, or perhaps you have a leak somewhere and all the freon is leaking out or has leaked out. Trust me one of my uncle's is a heating and cooling technician at a company called WinAir and he has fixed our home cooling systems many times. Those guys have tools, freon, and the right chemicals to see if you have a leak and need more freon.

I have a frigidare #PLKU1267DSO kegbox. the compressor runs and gets hot but the box will not cet cold at all. the coils inside also have rust on them


Your keg box runs very similar to a Wine Cooler. I believe this can help you. The pressure for the freon and the steps for trouble shooting is he same. Give it a try.

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.

My Avanti wine cooler, model WC3201D, stopped cooling


same problem, can not fix. Had a authorized service tech who said that you can not add freon to this unit, the only option is to plant flowers in it.
