Danby Wine Cooler
« on: June 05, 2012, 12:38:30 PM »

Hi everyone, Im new to the forum and trying to work on a wine cooler I got. It is a Danby DWC283bls- Similar to this problem ( My wine cooler runs, and the fans work, but when it is plugged in the compressor make a clicking noise every minute or so. I took off the start relays and put them back on. I don't know if thats the problem or what it could be. any suggestions? here is a pic of the start relays

I keep a all in one relay (hs410)in my tool bag. I have it wired to a lamp cord. I generally plug it into the compressor and see if she fires up. You hear the clicking and therefore you know power is getting to the compressor. It could very well be that relay. Have you checked it with a meter?

Thats probably you relay and overload. We hope. you should ohm your compressor. Before ordering the parts shown. If it ohms good replace them.
