Danby DFF282WDB stopped cooling - light comes on - any troubleshooting we can do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are locked into the defrost mode. This is when every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down for 20-30 minutes and your defrost heater comes on and defrost your freezer cooling (Evaporator) Coil. During this cycle everything shuts down except for the light.

Your controls are usually located on the top of your fresh food section. On the bottom of your controls, near the front, left hand side there is a round hole. This is where your defrost timer is located.

With a large flat head screw driver turn clockwise. You will hear a clicking sound. Turn slowly one click a time until your unit turns on. This unit will have to be replaced. Until it is replace manually turn it off every 10 hours for 20 minutes.

There is a light in my freezer. but, it doesn't get cold


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are locked into the defrost mode. This is where every 8-10 hours your unit will completely shut down except for the lights. At this time your defrost heater turns on for 20-30 minutes to defrost the evaporator (Cooling) coils in your freezer.


You can manually turn your unit back on, until you get a new defrost timer. If you have a up right freezer your defrost timer is in the lower back. It is mounted on a metal plate.

With a flat head screw driver turn the stem slowly one click at a time until your unit turns on. Once a day repeat this process to put your unit back into defrost until the timer is replaced.

If you have a top freezer the defrost timer is located on the top of the fresh food section on the left. Do the same thing. The cost of the timer is about $30.00.

Send me your model number located on the side front wall of your fresh food section and I will proved you with the part number and walk you through the repair.

If you can pull the unit out from the wall, find the motor compartment. There, you'll find a black can with the motor and compressor inside it. This usually creates vibration when running. Check the compressor's mounts, to see if they need tightening or have rubber grommets that have rotted away. The sound could also be coming from a fan somewhere in the machine. There might be a fan in the motor compartment. Find the vents inside the unit that blow cold air. Check the guards to see if a foreign object could have made its way into the vents and jammed a fan. Make sure you unplug the fridge before you stick any hands or tools someplace they wouldn't normally go. You may want to let the unit run while peeking in with a flashlight to locate the source of the vibration, but beware of moving parts and a shock hazard.

I hear a popping/clicking type noise from the freezer and I don't think the fan is coming on. It doesn't have an ice maker. The contents are still frozen each day, but I notice a thin layer of frost on...


if temps are still good, with settings at normal, that popping noise you hear is likely the resulting temperature change when the defrost heater comes on. when its in defrost, you may hear the clicking of the defrost timer, which you wouldnt normally hear when the unit runs.
You say there is a thin layer of frost on certain items, where are these items located in your freezer? are they near the top, the bottom, the back, the front, combination thereof? Are you having any problems with the door not closing well? check your door gaskets, are there any tears, rips or gaps. if you place a dollar bill between gasket and frame, does the bill move, ON ITS OWN. Of course you will be able to move the bill, but if you close the door on the bill and it falls out or shifts position by itself, you have a seal problem. Do you have too much food inside the unit? If you only noticed the frost recently, perhaps you cleaned it out and something is obstructing door from closing completely, on its own. Or if you went shopping, perhaps you bought just a little too much food. check the bottom drawer if yours has one, is it pushed all the way in?

It makes a very loud noise most of the time


First determine if the noise is from inside or outside of the freezer. If it is louder inside, and you have a frost free freezer, it is usally your evaporator fan motor. If the noise is behind and underneath you unit, then you need to pull the backing plate off, if it has one and determine if the noise is coming from the condensor fan motor, ( if it has one), or from the compressor itself. It usually is compressor and is definitely not worth repairing unless it is under a 5 year sealed system warrantee. Good Luck

Since this is a new freezer it should be serviced by the people who sold it to you in order to avoid any warranty conflict. The fan blades of these units are of a slip fit onto the motor shaft. It is possible that the fan blade has come off the motor shaft.
