Diy refrigerator repair

We bought the wine cooler from a close friend. She told us that all it needs is R-22. We need to trouble shoot the wine cooler. I hear the fans, the lights are on. Not sure how to check to see if the compressor works or the freon. Just need some basic trouble shooting before calling out a technician for a diagnostic.

SOURCE: fan noise

This is most likely due to dirt that has accumulated on the fan itself, making it unbalanced. Otherwise, do a visual inspection of the fan and see if you can see any physical damage. If you can not clean it or otherwise balance the fan back out - then you would need to get a replacement fan. You can call Danby at 800-263-2629 and order the part(s) needed.

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 makes noise and runs hot

The price looks fine for my area its about a 3 hour job done properly. you should consider a new wine cooler and cut your losses because if their only replacing the compressor they should be replacing the cap tube and liquid drier if the cap tube is not replaced could be a waste of money

SOURCE: I just bought a wine cooler not sure where to

Hi there.........i take it this is a used / second hand wine cooler......if so you've probably discovered why its been discarded........problem could b due to a faulty compressor unit....the fans are usually wired through the compressor...and run in conjunction with it........if the compressor isnt running then the fans are out .........if the comressor is running then check that there is nothing impeeding the fans rotation.....check for broken or damaged wiring.....check for tampering by someone else....check continuity of wiring through fan coils.........check for faulty starter unit on compressor

SOURCE: Koolspace NUVO wine cooler recharge

do you have a recovery machine and gauges you need to tap both sides to check the high to and it needs to be vaccumed down to remove moisture ,find and fix the leak. leaks arnt verry common un less someone broke a line somehow. if the compressor is running it is more likley it has a restriction or bad valve in compressor, hooking to high and low sides will determine which if is less than 5 years old it could be under warrant still most sealed systems have a longer warranty than the rest of it is the evaperator getting cold at all.

I have a frigidare #PLKU1267DSO kegbox. the compressor runs and gets hot but the box will not cet cold at all. the coils inside also have rust on them


Your keg box runs very similar to a Wine Cooler. I believe this can help you. The pressure for the freon and the steps for trouble shooting is he same. Give it a try.

Marvel 61wc wine cooler turns on, but doesn't cool


If you can hear the compressor running and there is no cooling happening your unit has either lost it's refrigerant due to a leak or the compressor is completly worn out (or both). If you just hear the condenser fan running (air blowing), then maybe the compressor just has bad electricals (starting relay, overoad, run capactor) or it has developed a bad winding and will need to be replaced.

If you know you have lost refrigerant the repair will be quite costly and you should consider replacement. If you feel it is a failure of the small electrical parts for the compressor, repair would be more cost effective.

You can get further trouble-shooting assistance and order parts direct from the factory at 800-223-3900.

You can look up a local servicer on their web-site at www.lifeluxurymarvel.com
Should you desire to attempt electrical repair yourself, reply to me and I will provide further troubleshooting assistance or you can contact Marvel Customer Service at the number above. Good-Luck, Subdriver
