Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler
I bought this unit second hand. I guess the previous owner was tired of the loud fan noise. I have it in the spare bedroom and thought I can't keep it in here as it's so loud and was getting ready to put it in the trash. My favorite thing for fixing things worked, at least for now. I unplugged the unit and sprayed some WD-40 onto the fan, It's now quiet and I'll see how long it will last. Just thought I would share this.
Not familiar with Danby or wine coolers, but I have messed with enough appliances including fridges. The same exact fan and motor are often used by different manufacturers and are "off the shelf" items you can get at most appliance parts suppliers. See if you can get any part numbers or info off the fan motor or from Danby's web site. Then see if a local supplier has one. If the fan has spade connectors, you may be able to swap it out without having to cut/splice wires.

SOURCE: fan noise
Sometimes the bearing gets dry. Take it out and try to put a small amout of household/3M oil on the shaft to see if it helps. Some have small holes that are for putting oil into to feed the bearings.. You may be able to do this without taking it out. Be very sparing with the oil to prevent getting too much in it.
