If it is the thermostat that is defective the two wires that go to the thermostat for compressor operation can be connected together which would power up the compressor. Unplug the unit before attempting to connect the two wires. after connection is made plug it back in and if the compressor operates and the freezer comes down in temperature you definitely have a bad thermostat.

Danby freezer


If it stopped working after being moved, check all the electrical connections. Also check no pipes were broken in the move. Is there any noise from the compressor?

My refrigerator is warm but the light inside turns on and i have it set to cold, it just stopped working today


Have you unplugged the fridge sir? checked for any electrical disconnections? dust clogging your tubules in the back? Enough space between the wall and fridge in the back? sometimes these will do it. Your fridge needs air to oxygenate the tubules so that it does not overheat and not work.

My danby freezer is defrosting do I set the freezer on zero for colder or 7


7 is the coldest. Defrosting is set up at the factory. It may not be a problem. If it doesn't come out after say 2 hours, then the defrost cycle is faulty.

Danby DUF408WE Upright Freezer not working


Does the compressor feel warm to the touch. If it does, it will be proof that the thermostat is calling for cooling and is probably good. For the obvious questions: Is the freezer in an area below 80 degrees F, is the wall outlet in good shape and not hot to the touch, is the freezer plug not blistered around the prongs, is the door gasket against the face all the way around the mating surface on the chasis. If the compressor is hot, listen for a click every 2 to 5 minutes. If the click is present the starter is your last best hope. The click is the compressor trying to start. Without the proper tools you are pretty much up against a wall. One last suggestion is to check for loose wires under the compressor terminal cover. I would suggest you look up the compressor manufacturer for a visual on cover removal. Dont forget to unplug before attempting compressor cover work. I hope you havent tried to put screws through the outside walls of this freezer or damaged the shelves inside. Both are fatal for the freezer and no repair can be made. Good luck.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
