That's always a possibility but not always the case. The thermostat may not be cycling correctly or set wrong. The condenser could be dirty or if there is a fan, it may not be running. Freeze ups can also cause an "Out of temp." condition. Check it out.

Check the condenser fan(unless it is a static coil),also see if the condenser coil is CLEAN. To determine the state of the refrigerant charge will require service taps. Based on the refrigerant type, the ambient temperature/head pressure will indicate charge condition. Sometimes it is less expensive to replace than to repair,(planned obsolensence) Good luck!

Danby DWC166BLSRH is not cooling. Fan is on and a clicking sound comes on, and compressor is very hot but will not cool.


I have the same problem. Mine probably needs refrigerant so it's a safe bet that yours does too. I'm going to order some and fix it, then update.

Temperature in both upper and lower zones will not go lower than 50F. Cooler has 3 bottles of wine. Is there away to recharge with coolant/clean fans...? Thank you


The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your refrigerator may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor.

Before cleaning the condenser coils, unplug the refrigerator to avoid a shock hazard.

Vacuum or brush the coils. If coils have a filmy build-up, use warm soapy water to clean them. Take care not to spill or drip water onto the components of the refrigerator.

The Danby wine cooler Model #DWC440BL-3 runs continously and is not cooling. There is a gurging sound from the compressor or the unit.


Sounds like the unit may have lost the refrigeration charge and or there is a problem with the compressor. Check your warranty depending how long you have own the unit it may be covered.

A manual can be downloaded from the following site.

Our danby dwc 283bls is not cooling. The motor


If compressor is running and it gets hot and the unit does not cool the compressor is bad or you have a leak in the system. if you see oil there's a leak.

The compressor needs to be tested to see if it's operational. This normally needs to be done by a service tec.

Is the compressor running? I don't know this unit, but know that if you are too warm that is the first thing to check. In reading about another unit that had a different problem, it was mentioned that there is a ciruit board. If it has relays on it then these are the most likely culprit. They are either not making contact or staying in contact too long... sometimes just tapping each relay usually a black plastic component will cause it to work intermittently..Not sure if you can get these but call the company help line at 1-800-263-2629.
