I am having a problem with my wine cooler also.I found the upper evap fan not running.So i opened up the control board and plugged the fan that was not working into one of the other 2 sockets,and the fan worked.so i have a circuit board problem.If you go online to sears parts and repair.put in your model# and search,it will bring up a diagram of most of the parts available.And no it doesnt have to be a GE product.

SOURCE: wine cooler noise

I wrote up a blog entry for a minor modification we made to our Danby wine refrigerator to silence noise from the upper fan:

http://www.adrianmccarthy.com/blog/?p=79

You can find quieter versions of the fan with the same specs at big computer parts stores (for the PC builders who want quiet computers). The one we got cost less than $20. We also added rubber spacers so that the fan vibration isn't amplified by back panel of the fridge (which otherwise acts like a soundboard). Made a huge difference.

Even with the fix, though, I wouldn't ever recommend the Danby models. Their noisy, and we've had multiple breakdowns in five years. The only authorized repair shop in our area has lousy customer service and high prices.

The problem is likely with one of the two fans. A new fan is available from Danby (1-800-263-2629). My noisy fan is the condensor fan located at the bottom rear of the device. After removing the cooler from under the cabinet, the source of the noise was obvious. You will need to tell them whether it is the upper fan or lower fan. Leave the cooler upright for a few hours before you plug it in so that you do not damage the condenser. Price for the fan from Danby is $20.15 including shipping.

Your PTC relay on the compressor is bad needs to be replaced.

First be sure to unplug cooler. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

First make sure your condenser is clean and the fan is going. If everything is running and still doesnt cool enough then you need a repair person to check the sealed system.

Just plugged in my new 12 bottle Danby wine cooler and it hums, LOUDLY. Any idea why?


it might , it has a compressor and that would make more noise under a strain . refrigeration units strain when the box is warm. let it run and bring down the temp of the box and then see how much noise it is making . 12 hours should do it.

Wine cooler cools but has a very loud, too loud to ignore, whirring sound when it is in cooling mode. Any ideas?


And when the wine is cooled ... the noise stops?
It's like a refrigerator ... it only operates when it it is reducing temperatures. Once things have cooled, the system cuts out.

If your wine cooler stops making a noise when the wine is cooled ..ok.

ITS NOT COOLER ITS IS ABOUT 3YRS OLD


IF it is running now:
Check the "coils" along the bottom or back, and dust them off with canned air.
Check the seal along the door, it may have been sprung by opening all the way too many times. To check the seal, take a note card (or business card) and place it in spots between the seal and frame for the cooler.

IF it is not running or running very loud:
Unplug the unit and let it warm up to room temp (transfer the wine into several good cooler boxes first...) and then leave it for several hours, then start it up again, this should help.

We got a Haier 42 wine cooler. The motor doesn't run.


This is something you can not fix yourself. Remember it might cost as much as a new wine cooler to repair. As for free estimate on repait. That way if it cost to much your not out anything. Rus

Haier wine cooler produces intermittent loud "motor" noises.


Turn the unit around so you can hear the compressor (large black small basketball size unit lower left) if the sound is coming from that then it is probably lost lubrication or just failing. "These usually last forever but.... they do fail. I am not sure if this one (loke mine) has a samll fan. Clarify the noise for use and we can tell you what it is. a constant tapp tap tap fast paced is the compressor going out or out of lub etc. . A ting ting ting may be a fan... Robert-Aptos
