Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

I do commerical refrigeration for a living. My danby wine cooler is freezing the product on the bottom. It showed a er 3. I found it froze up and took it out to defrost it. After I plugged back in the er 3 was gone. But it still continues to freeze the product. If I unplug the sensor from the board, the comp will stop. Not sure if it is the temp or defrost sensor. Maybe even the board. DWC283BLS-1 0908120100411

When your wine cooler starts to freeze things this way it usually is as a result of either the temperature sensor not functioning properly therefore not sending the trigger signal to the defrost sensor to signal when to start the defrost process. Or the defrost sensor not functioning at all. Although this could also be as a result of some short circuit on the board but most likely it is the temperature sensor or the defrost sensor. Get both of these checked and if possible replaced and your freezing issue is over.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

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.

We have a danby dwc283bls wine cooler that no longer cools, and the compressor gets warm (above normal) does it need to be recharged


that's always a possibility but not always the case. The thermostat may not be cycling correctly or set wrong. The condenser could be dirty or if there is a fan, it may not be running. Freeze ups can also cause an "Out of temp." condition. Check it out.

Danby wine chiller


I found the solution to my case. The continuous compressor running problem started a few days after we moved the unit from a hardwood floor to a room where it is on a carpet. For some reason, this caused some sort of freeze up. I solved the issue by raising the unit about 1/2" using a couple of boards I had and placing them under the legs. Now I need to figure out a bit more visually pleasing solution, but raising it up cured my freezing problem.

How to reset the temperature on the danby silhouette wine refrigerator


This happened to me, I found that the cooler would not go below 70 degrees because the cooler had lost its coolant or wouldn't work. I do not know, but as it was under warranty, an appliance repairman came and said that it was worth fixing, so it was replaced with in a week. Normally you would just hole the button in until the desired temperature is selected. Once released the cooler would attempt to set this temperature. If it is not, then I suspect it too is broken. Good luck.

Did you read the owners manual? It will be kind of hard to tell you because there are so many different settings for different areas.
