Summary: This cooler worked great and I was really happy with it. Until the 20th month when the temp dropped to 20 degrees even though the LED lights told me it was 57 degrees in there. By the time I woke up to the fact that my wines were slowly freezing to death, I had lost some really valuable bottles...
Summary: We've had this fridge and it does the job well. It looks great, keeps the wine cold. My dad actually has had two of these and it's worked great. The only problem I have with this refrigerator is that it moves the temperature around quite a bit.
Summary: This morning, I walked by the wine refrigerator, which I do several times every day as it is located in the dining room next to the entrance to the refrigerator. As I walked by, I noticed the glass was frosting over. I looked at the temperature and it was registering 55%.
Summary: Unit looks fine but the thermostat malfunctioned within 3 months, and froze all the bottles inside. Complete mess, corks popped out, all the wine ruined. Danby customer service is loudly adamant that they have no liability.
Summary: Not recommended. Bought from OpenBoxDirect for a good price. Their website says "Please note that all 'open box' units include the original manufacturer's warranty..." Unit died after 6 months. OpenBoxDirect said no warranty on Danby, said contact Danby.
Summary: 16 months after purchase, the temperature control malfunctioned and it froze over 60 bottles of wine. Corks came out, wine poured everywhere and Danby doesn't care because the unit made it past the 12 month warranty. Don't buy this piece of @#$%^&*.
BUYER BEWARE.. serviceable parts may be non existent.

Summary: Purchased about 7 years ago.. finally died on me. the control board needed replacing. Danby no longer makes the board. Keep this in mind if you buy this unit. You may end up with an unserviceable unit. I ended up with a different board that doesn't work the same. No internal light anymore..
Summary: After a few months, the temperature control stopped working, and all our wine froze, pushing out the corks - what a mess to clean up. Danby sent out a repairman to take a look, and he confirmed the temperature control sensor was bad and he ordered the part.
