Fan runs, control panel lights up compressor not running unit not cooling. Any ideas as to why compressor not running?


could be a start run capacitor failed
I suggest that you get a fridge technician to check ti out first as a compressor is generally more expensive than a new unit.

My vinotemp vt60 starts cooling then stops


I sounds to me like the compressor is overheating. There is an overload on the compressor itself. Follow the wires where they go into the compressor. There will be a black wire going from the power cord to the overload. These can be purchased at appliance parts stores. Make sure there is no dirt build up on condenser coils or a kink in the tubing.

Compressor getting hot


I have the same cooler with the same problem and I've been researching this for several months now to no avail. It worked trouble free for over seven years before having problems. My local "authorized" Danby repair dealer advised me to: "Chuck it out, the parts are too hard to come by and it's impossible to get any parts or response from Danby". I attempted to contact Danby on my own and their 800 help line is non-responsive/non-existent. Be advised that Danby appears to have become just a middle-man importer now; the units are manufactured in China. Since I've had a problem finding a wine cooler that looks as good as this one that fits in the slot I have for it in my kitchen I decided to try repairing it myself.
I've replaced the circuit board/display and the thermistors with parts obtained through Sears, and the compressor still gets hot and the inside upper and lower temp. will not cool below 61- 64 degrees (+/- 2 deg.), respectively. All the fans are working properly, so I know it's not a fan, thermostat (circuit board) or thermistor problem. I think now it's either the compressor or else a thermoelectric element. I doubt if it is a refrigerant leak because that is least likely in a closed system like this. My only recourse now is to take it in to the local repair shop and have them take a look at those two items or keep looking for a replacement. Hope this helps. Good luck!

FR23SL Uses Peltier Cooling - No compressor nor freon....


Luzer - Thanks for the very helpful solution. My cooler has the problem described. When I take off the back and plug it back in, all three fans run, but the unit does not get cold. Is it possible that it needs new fans anyway (like maybe they are going but not moving enough air to generate the effect)? Or woudl it be something else?

Thanks!

Danby DWC513BLS does not cool. Fan is on, but compressor does not turn on to lower temperature even when temperature is turned down. Where does one get parts for this online


Before you worry about where to get parts,you need to know what is wrong and what parts you will need. When a compressor does not run but the fan motor does, then either the compessor is bad (in which case you need refrigeration expertise) or the starter components have failed ( in which case you can replace. The two most common failed parts are the start relay or the overload (both attached to the compressor. Goodluck, Macgivor

MCWC30MCG stopped cooling


Handy hubby,
welcome to Fixya,
It sounds like the compressor!
Not worth replacing this very expensive part.


Was it so hot you could not keep your hand on the compressor?
If yes then it's most likely your compressor.
Happy to be of assistance.
Sorry about your lose

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.
