Not staying cold all of a sudden

It's been working fine a little over a year and now all of a sudden it won't stay cold down to the preset temps. It is at 71 and sometimes goes down to 67 and that's it. I've cleaned out the bottow back and unplugged it 5 minutes to rset and so on. Nothing is working. What do I do?

    My Danby cooler worked well for over a year, cooling to the 45-52 or so range it is supposed to.  Then I noticed the temp was in the 60s, and now in the 70s.  Definitely room temp.  I unplugged it for periods of 5 min to overnight but that didn't help.  Setting the temp by pressing the buttons didn't help either.  Seems that I am not alone with this problem.  HELP! please.

Why does my wine cooler run too cold?


If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.


Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

HH error code? on magic chef mcbc580dbt


I, too, have just seen (late June 2013) the "HH" code on my Magic Chef wine cooler (and it is running too cold and I can't reset the temperature). Have you found a solution since your posting of about 1 year ago?

The temperature gets too cold and wont stay on what I set. Froze bottles in cooler. What do I do? I live in Maryland, can i take it somewhere to get fixed?

ITWILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.
The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

STOP PAYING FOR EXPENSIVE WATER FILTERS FOR YOUR REF. DO THIS====

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Set temp to 42 and 54 but unit stays at 75. HELP!


sounds like the compressor is not running . ck the connectons at compressor and listen for a click in the cold control as it may be bad .. / noises like clicking at compresor . may be the relay that starts it .. mm

Temp won't go down to target


Sounds like your unit is low on refrigerant gas.  Too little gas causes rapid boiling of refrigerant and makes the cold spots.  You'll need professional help.

Does anyone know how to lower the temp below 45 degree's.


Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!

No they have no bypass!
How old is this wine cooler! MY ADVICE BUY ONE NEW!
It cost $241 to buy a new one at the site below!
NOT WORTH THE MONEY FOR A COMPRESSOR
Or model #HBCN05EBB FOR $249 96 BOTTLES CAPACITY

http://www.buy.com/prod/bc112g-30-bottle-freestanding-wine-
refrigerator/q/loc/63024/203111423.html



If the dishwasher is 10 years or older its not worth investing money tofix it! The new ones are mush more efficient and clean better!

Either way this is a service problem to remedy!
Below I gave you a nation wide service thats very good!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!


Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
