Question about Danby DAR483 Compact Refrigerator

Danby 4.4cuft compact refrigerator

Hope you can help....I bought this frig for my son at college. The interior light works but the motor comes on for only about 15 seconds and then it goes off again, it never runs long enough to cool the refrigerator.
I am wondering if there is something we omitted in the set-up?

The last time I saw a problem like this, the motor/compressor was bad. If the unit is still under warranty I would contact the manufacture or an authorized repair station in your area

Danby DCR412BLS compact refrigerator stopped cooling. Motor still runs. No sign of leaking refrigerant. What dxoes the red button on the temperature control dial do? Thanks!


Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Compressor in the back is hot


Good day,
It is normal for a compressor to run hotter than normal when it is going thru it's pull down cycle.
One, it is working harder than normal since the interior is still warmer than normal.
As well, at the beginning, since the machine is trying to get to normal temps as well as cooling the walls, it will run excessively if not all the time.
Waiting 48 hours would be prudent to make a judgement call.
The compressor should be warm, but since by then it should be shutting off and on it will tend overall to be cooler.
If it reaches normal operating temperatures and cycles off and on, I wouldn't worry about it.

Brand new danby dcr34bl refrigerator not working


Often times refrigerators need to sit for a day or so before being used, moving them scatters the refrigerant through the system making them useless.

It is also possible that durring shipping the system may have been compromised, allowing the refrigerant to escape. Have a technician check it out before you try to return it

Sounds like the fan can be running backwards. I'm not sure of you exact model, but it has to match the air flow of the original unit. Do you remember? Some manufacturers use reversable motors and are some what easy to reverse.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Not cooling


From my earlier post, our compact Magic Chef 'frig was not running at all.  It still looks perfect, so decided to check on the repair.  It turned out to be the "starter switch," I think is what the switch was called.  The repairman said this is a very common problem, so he had the switch we needed in his truck.  It was repaired quickly and is running great.  
Cost was about $140, part plus labor.  A replacement would have been only a few dollars more, but would take more time and effort.  FYI, the compressor on these Magic Chef refrigerators has a 5-yr warranty.
Hope that helps someone. Jaci
