    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.

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.

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.

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

Compressor runs and gets hot but does not cool unit


This product has been discontinued
i dont think many danby units are parts supported
more likely generic after market parts fitted by air con mechanics do the job
relay first might be a thematic one and an compressor motor fan relay
then check gas pressure

Danby Silhouette Wine cooler won't cool. Need to know if I can fix it (freon charge maybe?) of if I should call someone to service it.


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
