    My wife bought a slightly used cooler.
    When we plugged it in the compressor will not stop running.
    The upper section fan shuts off at the correct temperature but the lower section continues to cool to about 33 degrees and the compressor continues to run.

    Is the thermostat part of the main circuit board?
    I have tried to contact Danby and their website refers me to a local dealer and he does not carry parts.

The thermostate switch is faulty, the sensor does not switch off the compressor, you need to replace the thermostate.

Danby silhouette runs but does not get cold. Model number DAR483BLS. What's the problem?


Sounds like a gas leak. Could be caused by rust. If refrigerant has leaked out through a failure in the pipe work it's probably not worth fixing. If compressor still runs ok get a tech to check for pipe damage or failure. If you continue to run compressor longer term without refrigerant it will damage the compressor. Best to get a tech to ascertain the problem soon.

Danby DWC166BLSRH is not cooling. Fan is on and a clicking sound comes on, and compressor is very hot but will not cool.


I have the same problem. Mine probably needs refrigerant so it's a safe bet that yours does too. I'm going to order some and fix it, then update.

The Danby wine cooler Model #DWC440BL-3 runs continously and is not cooling. There is a gurging sound from the compressor or the unit.


Sounds like the unit may have lost the refrigeration charge and or there is a problem with the compressor. Check your warranty depending how long you have own the unit it may be covered.

A manual can be downloaded from the following site.

Danby wine cooler compresser not running and is hot


The compressor needs to be tested to see if it's operational. This normally needs to be done by a service tec.

Wine cooler makes noise and runs hot


The price looks fine for my area its about a 3 hour job done properly. you should consider a new wine cooler and cut your losses because if their only replacing the compressor they should be replacing the cap tube and liquid drier if the cap tube is not replaced could be a waste of money

Wine cooler noise


The problem is likely with one of the two fans. A new fan is available from Danby (1-800-263-2629). My noisy fan is the condensor fan located at the bottom rear of the device. After removing the cooler from under the cabinet, the source of the noise was obvious. You will need to tell them whether it is the upper fan or lower fan. Leave the cooler upright for a few hours before you plug it in so that you do not damage the condenser. Price for the fan from Danby is $20.15 including shipping.

Fan not working


Does it have a compressor and does it run? If so there is probably a relay on that board that is bad or only runs with the compressor.
