Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Where to buy parts for Danby dual zone wine cooler?

After reading through some of the issues here, and from what I have seen, I believe that the electronics on my wine cooler have gone out. It started getting warmer, and after about a week it is no longer cooling at all. I cleaned everything out and noticed the upper fan was not working. When I plug it into a different slot, it works fine. (this is why I think the circuit board has gone out).

What else should I check? When I plug it in, the compressor runs and the tank in back gets pretty hot, but the temperature inside actually goes up a bit, rather than down. Are there relays near the compressor that could have gone out, or is everything controlled off the main board?

Finally, where do I find parts online? I cannot seem to find any references to Danby parts anywhere, are there crossover brands that would work?

Thanks

    I have the same problem described by hudson 2212. Can it be the compressor even though it gets hot? How is the top fan not working related to it not cooling?

    I too have the same exact problem described by both of you. I saw the solution post about parts however, without knowing for sure what is wrong, buying any part at this time is not an option. I went to Danby's web site and there is an authorized service center very close to me. At the very least, I will take it their and hopefully get some sort of diagnosis/repair cost.



    Did anyone get theirs fixed? Is so, what was the problem?



    Thanks, Paul

My Haier wine cooler (Model BC112G) has stopped working. Prior to it stopping, the pipes in the lower back became caked with ice. Any ideas what might have broken...and how/if it can be fixed?


let the thing totally defrost (24hrs)with the door open then switch it back on as a first step,the ice on the pipes stops the gas from turning from a liquid to a gas...thats how it cools..

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

You could have an issue with one of the following:

* compressor
* attachments to compressor (e.g.: relay, capacitor (if applicable), overload protector)
* temperature control assembly

Wine cooler Doesn't work


I had the same issue on a Whynter WC28S SNO 28 Bottle Wine Cooler, it even seems like most of the thermoelectric wine coolers, fridges, and such have the same boards by hanny. For cross refference parts I used NTE because Fry's Electronics had them.
Switching transistors - NTE51
1N 4007 - NTE125
Silicon Dual Power Rectifier - NTE6090

Also I have a venotemp wine cooler that has pretty much the same board, with the same plugs for fans, light, control panal, and cooler fan for $45 shipped at their site under replacement parts. Hope this helps people looking for info on this. Also research Switching Power Supply issues for information.

sounds like you need to replace the control board, i believe there may be two parts here - if there are, try replacing the power control board before trying the electronic control piece... this is the board that has the low and high voltage circuits and relays.

Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler - Error message E3 & E4


Is the compressor running? I don't know this unit, but know that if you are too warm that is the first thing to check. In reading about another unit that had a different problem, it was mentioned that there is a ciruit board. If it has relays on it then these are the most likely culprit. They are either not making contact or staying in contact too long... sometimes just tapping each relay usually a black plastic component will cause it to work intermittently..Not sure if you can get these but call the company help line at 1-800-263-2629.
