Customer Reviews

Danby 38 Bottle Wine Cooler is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked great until it broke Great little wine fridge at first and holds a lot of bottles but it stopped working after about 13 months. We noticed water all over our floor one day, and it was leaking everywhere. Cleaned it up, defrosted it completely for 24hrs, dried up all the water inside it and next day, same thing. Big flood in our living room and it no longer keeps the bottles cold. It also has a very pungent plastic smell that never went away, even after a year. My husband found it be quite noisy as well. Overall, glad we bought it at Costco as they are letting us return it for a full refund. Would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product I had to return it. It was not generating. It lasted maybe a week. Problem is, what else do you buy? Its cheaper than most coolers out there but priced higher then its worth. I ended up with a different product that happened to fit my space. That is also an issue. Finding the right size cooler. And Danby seems to have that market almost to themselves. I will not buy a Danby if i can buy something else. Also getting coolers fixed out side the warranty period is a trap. Dont bother trying to fix anything. You will get charged $60 for just looking at it to be told its too expensive to fix and then they will take your cooler and use it for parts or fix it themselves for their own resale. A total Damby scam. I got completely burned on that one. Take my advice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had an issue with this unit We had this unit for about 6 months when It started making a clicking noise. It was loud enough to notice it during the night when we were in bed. Noise was occurring every half hour or so and over time would get louder and louder. This occurred for about two to three months then started to get less and less loud. Presently there is no clicking coming from this unit. Seems the problem worked it self out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fridge but with limitations This fridge does a good job of temperature control, and I like the separate compartments for white and red wines with corresponding temperatures. However, the shelves only work well for standard size bottles. Any longer or fatter bottles (which are becoming more popular), do not fit well. I also do not like the pooling of condensation water on the floor when humidity is high.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from frigo a vin deux fois par année le frigo décongèle et le bac pour retenir l'eau est trop petit ou celui-ci ne s'évapore pas suffisament vite. Toutefois, si je compare le prix a un cellier je suis tout de meme gagnant. comme je suis brocoleur je me propose bientôt d'installer un tuyeau vers un récipient plus grand. il est tres beau esthétiquement, j'aime bien la lumiere a l'intérieur.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Satisfaction bonne, sans plus Il est muni de 2 sections donc je devrais être capable de tenir ces 2 sections à des températures différentes. Je mettais alors le vin rouge en haut et le blanc en bas. Il se forme alors de la glace à la sortie du fan et de l'eau coule ensuite sur le plancher. Il faut donc que je maintienne les 2 sections à la même température.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good wine fridge Previously we had another brand of wine fridge which promptly died one day after the warrantee expired. We purchased this Danby fridge and have been very happy with it. While some of the larger bottle are a tight squeeze, it's generally very accommodating and keeps the wine nicely chilled. I would highly recommend this fridge.

We do not recommend using an extension cord.
This will depend on your personal preference and the varietal you are storing. Sweet white wines are best stored between 41°F (5°C) and 46°F (8°C), while dry whites are best stored between 46°F (8°C) and 54°F (12°C). Reds are generally stored at a warmer temperature. Light to medium reds are best stored from 54°F (12°C) to 61°F (16°C) and full bodied reds are best from 63°F (17°C) to 66°F (19°C).
Please consult your owner’s manual. If too many bottles/cans are put in at once or the door has not been closed tightly, the unit will display the “HI” signal in the display panel. This is normal, please wait 5 minutes after you close the door and “HI” will disappear. It is normal that the cabinet shows “HI” or “LO” from time to time. If it occurs frequently or lasts for a long time, you can restart the unit by unplugging it. If the problem occurs once again after restart, please contact customer service.
Our wine cellars and beverage centres are not designed for outside installation. This also includes anywhere that is not temperature controlled. ie. garages, porches, carports, etc.
The temperature range varies based on model. Please consult your owner’s manual or the product page on the website.
