Question about Danby Silhouette® DWC276BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Danby DWC2727BLS temperature does not go lower than 60 degrees

Hello all, Here's the issue I'm having with back story. Months ago I had some visitors stay at my house and 2-3 times they accidentally left the wine cooler door open slightly open over night. I can't imagine that's good for the unit. The machine began running loudly over the next couple weeks and I noticed the temperature was holding. Instead of being around 42, where I programmed it, it was around 60 degrees. I didn't have time to take a look, so I left it unplugged for the last few months. I started looking at it the other day and here is what I observed. * 6/7/12: turned wine cooler on for the first time in 3 months. I set the thermostat to 42 degrees and the fridge is fully stocked. * 6/8/12 (24 hours later): Temp dropped to 61 degrees. * 6/9/12 (48 hours later): Temp dropped to 60 degrees. * 6/10/12 (72 hours later): Temp increased to 63 degrees. Some Notes and Observations: - The compressor is hot to the touch. - I hear something running, I assume the fan. - The unit is not running loudly as it did before I shut it off months ago. - Room temp has ranged from 69 - 78 degrees. - I have not opened the fridge since I turned it on. I have a second identical unit that's been sitting in my basement because the casing was damaged during shipping. I assume all of the parts are like new and could be used to replace bad parts.

There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons for what you described.Numbers 1 & 2, you have already addressed.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to
clean the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
in basement applications. Raising the unit up off the floor, level
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My air-con is not as cold as before. I tried to lower the temperature, but when i try setting the temperature to 18 degrees, the remote just shows 18 degrees for like 5 seconds before going back to 31...


These is because you have not service your air-con for a long time. The cooling fins are clotted with dirt & dusts accumulated for a long period of time, and the water vapour caught between the cooling fins turn into ice when you set lower the temperture for the air-con. Moreover cool air from the blower/fan cannot pass thru', the cooling fins to regulate the cool air into your room.

You have to get the professionals to do a service on your air-con.

Hope it clarify your predicaments.

I have a Danby Silhouette and the fan works but the dehumidifier doesnt.


Bryan, it may imply be a case of the humidity extraction level being set to high. Lower the level to 35% and see what happens. As far as the fan running is concerned. Most dehumidifiers are designed for the fan to run, even if the compressor doesn't turn ON. It's designed to keep the air circulating and if the humidity rises above the setting you have it on, the humidity sensor will pick up this change and turn the compressor ON.

Also, remove the air intake filter to see if it's clogged and needs cleaning. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" of free air space all around the dehumidifier. Poor air circulation will prevent the unit from working properly. As will, to low an ambient air tempeature. Most unit struggle to work at temperature between 40 & 60 degrees F.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Ultronic clock, humidity & temperature. How does one read the "Temperature Trend" scal on the lower left of the screen. There are three scales shown and the indicators on the scale keeps...


This clock keeps track of the temperatures for each of the last 12 hours. So on the bottom, you'll see the temp at 12 hours ago (-12), 6 hours ago (-6), etc. On the left side, you'll see the temperature in Farenheit go from +5.4 to -5.4 from where it is currently. So if the temperature is 70F degrees right now, and it was 65F degrees 12 hours ago, then it'll show -5 in the first -12 column. It will always be at 0 for the current hour on the right. The scale on the right is in Celcius so it does the exact same thing as Farenheit.
