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.

How long does a tapped keg of beer last?


This depends on the type of system you are using to tap your keg. A standard tap given to you with a keg will not last very long, just less than a week. If you are using a proper kegorator CO2 system, your beer will last at least two months, if not longer depending on the temperature of your fridge.

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.

True cooler frezzing kegs of beer


If I am not mistaken, the True line-up of coolers have a temp control on them that is labeled 0-9.

This particular type of temp control is a coil temp control. I measures the temperature of the coil rather than air temperature.

Always set the control to the warmest setting and move it colder by one number at a time until your product reaches and holds designed temp. Do not go by cooler air temperature as there will be a great swing in temp especially if the doors are used frequently. Always temp the product. In the case of beer, your ideal holding temp is between 35-38°.


If you set the temp control to the warmest setting and the cooler is still freezing product, you will need to have the cooler serviced be a refrigeration tech. It will most likely be a bad control but there may be underlying problems.

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.
