Question about Danby DKC645BLS Compact Beverage Cooler

7 Answers

Temperature on Keg Cooler (DKC644BLS) is dropping below freezing

The temperature on my keg cooler is no longer being regulated. The temperature continues to drop below freezing temperatures for beer. In fact, it has reached 0 degrees. Also, the LED and the temp. control panel on the front are no longer functioning. These problems occurred at the same time. Are they interelated? Can I fix them myself with replacement parts. If so, what do I order and how do I install? Hope some one can quench my thirst, Thirsty

    My LED stopped allowing me to adjust the temperature setting with the soft touch keys. Shortly thereafter the unit started chilling to freezing temperatures. The LED reads "LE" and I do not even know what that means. I have looked and cannot find a way to order new parts. Any help on problem or parts would be appreciated.

    I couldn't get a service company to follow through so I had to order parts from the factory. All the parts are not here yet but "on the way"

    I am getting no power to the compressor or the led display. I have followed the power from the wall all the way to the led display and haven't found anything other than what looks like some beer managed to get down by the circuit board compartment. One of the screws on the circuit board was corroded, but once I opened the compartment everything looked fine. There were no blown transistors, no corrosion on the board and no buildup or dried liquid inside the compartment or on the top or bottom of the board.

Mine did this as well. last night the diplay read "LE" and the temp controls and the C/F buttons were unresponsive. I called Danby. Although I was on hold for 30 minutes, when they did answer they were very helpful. As mentioned elsewhere here, the touchpad has gone bad. You can order it right over the phone. The price of the touchpad is only $2 and shipping is $7. I ordered 2 of the touchpads (why not, right?) and the shipping was still $7 for the both. # for Danby is1-800-263-2629. Make sure your phone is charged.

On danby beer coolers that you can't adjust the temp the problem is in the touch memebrane. moisture gets too the touchpad and stops it from responding. I can get the touch pad with the shipping and handling to you it is $22.75. - Erin 509-928-7176

I have the same unit and having the same problem. I called Danby and talked to a rep that said the problem is common. The problem is the display pad is bad and needs to be replaced. She said it is easy that even she could do it. The part can be ordered from them and total cost with shipping was under $9. 800-263-2629

Danby parts can be ordered by phone, (519) 837-0920 for Canada and (419) 425-8627 in the US. I spoke to a very knowledgeable lady and had the parts I needed (a simple thermostat) delivered to me within a week for about $17.00. A fifteen minute repair and my frozen beer problem is fixed. Hope this helps those with similar problems.

The temp guage does not work and when the keg cooler is plugged in it gets down to 20 degrees and freezes the beer. Can this be fixed?


This solution probably costs more than you care to spend on the problem, but you can buy an external temp controller like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002EAL58
You run the probe into the fridge and plug the fridge into the controller. Then the controller will only turn on the fridge if it gets warmer than the temperature you specify.
You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay, too. I'm using this on a kegerator and can keep my beer at a consistent temp.

Beer freezes


The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat.

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.

Cooler wont cool below 48 degrees.


Keep a thermometer handy. (adjust temperature control knob accordingly)
Periodically monitor temperatures inside your cooler. (adjust as necessary)
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible to avoid temperature fluctuations

The temperature of the refrigerator compartment is
controlled by adjusting/setting the thermostat control
knob, located on the ceiling of the refrigerator
cabinet.
To start the refrigerator, and achieve maximum
cooling quickly;
• Turn the temperature control knob (using a coin
or screwdriver) clockwise to the furthest
(maximum) setting on the darker blue section of
the graduated control dial.
• Allow the refrigerator to run at this setting for 3~4
hours.
• When maximum cooling is achieved, turn back
the temperature control knob setting to the 2:00
o'clock position on the graduated blue control
dial.
• Correct cooling temperature is a key factor to
consider in storing and dispensing draught beer.
• Optimum temperature for serving draught beer is
between 34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC)
• To maintain temperatures ranging between
34ºF ~ 38ºF.(1ºC ~ 3ºC) We recommend the
thermostat knob be positioned at the "2:00
o'clock" setting on the graduated blue control dial.
• To turn off the refrigerator, (no cooling) rotate the
control knob to the "0" position.

Danby Keg Cooler foam problem


If you are getting foam then finally poors fine you have a temperature problem. If you are getting constant foam then you are probably looking at a pressure problem. First of all make sure that you let your keg sit for at least 4 hours and get down to 38 degrees before you tap the keg. Also ensure that your pressure is set to at least what the pressure is in the keg (generally 13 psi). If you can, try to ask the beer manufactures (if you use a microbrewery) what pressure to set it at. One brew master told me to start at 15 psi and adjust from there.

If you still get foam and you can guarantee that the temperature is correct then you are getting some agitation from something else. Double check all your washers and even check your stop valve on the CO2 line to the coupler. Sometimes the lines are not the correct length or even the correct diameter, when the beer is forced through the line if it starts out thin and then expands or vice versa that gives beer a chance to get agitated and cause foam.

Finally the equipment that is used on these systems are generally not that great. I had a Danby Chill'n Tap and replaced the coupler and the tap and all the lines and that solved my issues, even though my problem was probably a cracked valve for the < $80 it cost me to replace everything it wasn't worth my time to figure out exactly what was wrong with it.
