My keg cooler suddenly started to drop below the regulated temperature. In fact, it has dropped to zero degrees and is no longer able to be controlled using the buttons on the front console. Also the LED is no longer functionind properly. I want to fix myself. What parts do I need to order and how do I install. Looking for answers soon, Very Thirsty

Thirsty, you didn't provide a Make or Model number with your post. It's difficult to find parts without that information. However, given your symptoms, you should look closely at the control board on this unit. It is most likely the culprit. The flashing display gives it away! BUT, why did it blow out? 3 things could lead to that; 1.) shorted out temperature thermistor inside the box. (it is very small, less than an inch long... probably behind a protective cover. It tells the computer what temp the box is at by temp variable resistance values.) If I were working on this myself? I'd change it out along with the Control Board. 2.) Simple electrical failure of the control board (moisture, etc...) 3.) Unit suffered from a Power Surge. Do you have it plugged into a surge suppression device? If not, you should. Tracy

    Thirsty, you should contact Danby directly and let them know that you require a thermister and control board. They don't have parts listed online. You have to go through them, unfortunately.

    Here's their contact info.

New thermostat needed I would say. As for installing, thats a little more dificult & without writing a novel, but when you get your new part, examine it the try to work out how the manufacturer got it in!!!

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.

Foamy beer


Keg's are normally pressurized at 13 psi. If you only set yours at 8 psi then you are going to cause problems. You should always start at least the same psi that the keg is set to. If you can talk to the keg company as they all differ some. Common problem is to lower the psi which will cause foam until you reach about 1/2 full or a little less then you should get less foam but your beer will become very flat. Too much pressure is usually better than too little, even with too much pressure you'll see the beer come out fine but will start to foam when hitting the glass/pitcher. Also note that the coupler's that Danby use are very cheap, check the CO2 vale (between CO2 line and coupler) to see if there are any cracks or anything.

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.

Temperature on Keg Cooler (DKC644BLS) is dropping below freezing


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.
