Question about Danby DWC513BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Wine cooler noise

We bought our house with a danby silhouette wine cooler installed in our kitchen. About 50% of the time it makes a very loud humming noise and then finally quiets down for a few minutes before it starts up again. We don't have a users manual and have been unable to diagnose or fix the problem. Any ideas? Thanks, Heather

Same problem. Called Danby and they have a back order until June!!!!! Talk about customer service.

    I have a Danby DWC513BLS Wine Cooler. I purchased it about 2 1/2 years ago and it has been great until now. I think one of the fans has gone out as it makes a terrible whining sound and it looks like the square fan at the bottom stops rotating.

    We purchased a used Danby Sillouette DWC513BLS and it makes a horrible whinning noise! It hardly ever stops, but sometimes the noise is louder and worse than other times. It seems like it is worse as it starts up and after it's been running for awhile, it gets a little less. Also, the temps don't seem to stay very consistent. We set for our desired temperatures and it just runs and gets very cold. Would that be the thermostat?

    Anyway, can one contact Danby directly for parts? If this unit is repairable, I'd love to incorporate it into my sort of make shift kitchen redo I have planned... but can't do it if's so noisy!

    Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.

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.

Loud noise

The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck

Wine fridge light does not turn off

You may know this already, but for what its worth. There is a small switch on the bottom vent grill for on/off of light. Check there first.....

Wine cooler noise

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. Users Manual is available at -Ron
