Hi My Danby 512BL was running fine for 4 years. Suddenly the compressor started making loud sounds. Upon checking the rear I found that water cup had nearly overflown. I emptied and restarted. It started working again with compressor and fan both kicking. However the temperature keeps going up to 80s F. Please help.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)
Yes they should last longer than that, but the sad thing is that they don't make anything like they used too...just check out all the problems in this site for a few minutes...most of the problems should never happen...
THis sound is usually caused by the water being low in the tank. This can be because the machine is left on for long periods without being used. If this is not the case, then it would probably be your heating element getting small holes in it.
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.

Hi there,if it is making a mechanical grinding or any other loud noises,its finished.Does this have rear ac.If it does,there is a design flaw on some years.The rear suction hose(rear evap core to compressor)bypasses the drier.This allows some moisture to make it back to the comp.I hope this was helpfull..Good Luck!!!
There are a few things to check.
1. Do you have enough water pressure in your lines? It may not be filling enough.
2.Is the washer balanced? Try making sure that its on a level surface.
3. Make sure that your hose isnt kinked, and check the back in the screen to make sure it isnt clogged.
4. Is it above the height of its supply? If so, try finding a lower space to put it on.
5. Take a cup or two of vinegar and run it through a cycle.
6. make sure that, in the arm, there is no clogs or food.
I'm not 100% sure what the problem is, other then its not pumping water into it at first and sounds like its blocked some where down the line.
If you've never cleaned it with vinegar before, I'd imagine that would be the problem. Hope this helps
