Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler
We suffered from the same loud noise problems and was never able to get ahold of Danby. Enough on that. The fan is extremely easy to replace.
The part is
The fan has two prongs that you can either solder wire on or better yet they sell a harness that plugs in. Sorry I don't have the part number.
Wrap a strap around the unit so the door does not open.
Tilt the unit up about 6" and brace. Be careful not to tip it over.
Follow the wire from the fan back. You should see it attached to via a zip tie to the body of the unit. Cut this.
Under the fan on the bottom of the unit will be 2 Philips screws. Remove to free the fan.
Cut the wire close to the fan.
Remove the fan but keep it as you will need parts from it.
Attach new wire harness to wire attached to unit. I used bullet connectors so future removal is simple.
Remove the 4 screws on the old fan to remove the mounting brackets the Philips screw into and the fan screen guard.
Install these parts on the new fan being aware of the air flow direction. Air flows away from the label.
***addl item. I cut 2 thin strips of rubber and glued under the mounting brackets to add additional vibration protection.
Plug the harness into the fan.
Screw screw fan back in place.
Enjoy your wine!
I hope this helps some of you.

I started hearing a strange noise on my 4 year old unit. When I got behind it, I noticed it was coming from the fan. Cleaned it and now it is working fine.

This is most likely due to dirt that has accumulated on the fan itself, making it unbalanced. Otherwise, do a visual inspection of the fan and see if you can see any physical damage. If you can not clean it or otherwise balance the fan back out - then you would need to get a replacement fan. You can call Danby at 800-263-2629 and order the part(s) needed.
