Question about Danby DWC283BLS Wine Cooler

1 Answer

Compressor runs and gets hot but does not cool unit

Same basic problem as described by hudson2212 on Aug 26, 2008 in the thread "Where to buy parts for Danby duel zone..."

Also, same general thing as posted by dudley on May 30, 2007 in the thread "Dose not get cold enough?" and by several others.

Basically, the unit sounds like it is running, the compressor runs and gets hot, but I hear no fans running to blow air over the coils and cool the unit. The unit reads as 63/64 and refuses to cool below 60 in either the top or bottom.

From reading through the other postings seems like everyone is having the same basic issue but nobody has a solution. I called my local service shop and they don't handle Danby... Please, if you know the real solution post on this thread so that everyone who gets hit with this common problem will know how to deal with it.

Is it the coolant? Condenser? Circuit Board? Relay?

Thanks!

    I HAVE THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. MY COMPRESSOR RUNS AND GETS HOT BUT DOES NOT COOL UNIT.WHAT'S WRONG.

    I have the same problemand the top fan dosent work. I switched the fan plugs and the fan itself works, so its a control problem...anyone help please.

    The unit no longer cools and compressor is very hot. I noticed that the fan in the lower section is running, but the fan in the upper section is not. I reached around back and touched the compressor and you could have fried an egg on it! I got in contact with a couple appliance repair companies and they will come to your home, diagnose, and fix the problem. Be careful though. I was told by two different companies of a "diagnostic charge". Apparently, this is where these companies make their money. Kinda like "shipping and handling". Ridiculous. Not all are like this though, so be sure and ask. If you e-mail the service department at Danby, they are very good at finding these repair companies in your area. Haven't had the time for them to come out yet....Hope it's not a HUGE problem. Anyone have a similar situation and how much were the repairs?

This product has been discontinued
i dont think many danby units are parts supported
more likely generic after market parts fitted by air con mechanics do the job
relay first might be a thematic one and an compressor motor fan relay
then check gas pressure

Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out thelast two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...

What does P1 mean on display?


Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

I hope that helps.

My model is DDR4009EE, after it run for a while, the display changed from RH to "P1",what does "P1" mean?


My Danby DDR657EE shows P1 periodically also. So, I called Danby.

So, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

How much is the cost for a new Household Microwave Oven (Danby)


To replace your model of Danby.... costs around $90 bucks. To fix ur Danby if its broken.... $65/hr service charge (minimum) plus parts.... We are in the disposable society, sad... but its cheaper to throw ur microwave away unless u know the basics to fix it ... like a fuse replacement. Otherwise,.. just go out and buy a new one.

P1 error


Your question needs to be answered in 3 parts:

1) As per the manual for my Danby Dehumidifier (Model DDR657EE), the unit may not turn on immediately when powered On (it may take a several minutes). So, generally, it would be normal in your case.

2) Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

So, generally, if you see P1 periodically (for brief periods), then it would be normal.

3) Since your unit keeps running (continuously) and there is no water in the bucket, then you should call Danby ServiceI for additional assistance - it seems defective for this reason.

I hope that helps.

Three Temperature zones


Did you read the owners manual? It will be kind of hard to tell you because there are so many different settings for different areas.
