Question about Danby 16.7 cu. ft. / 473 liter Upright Freezer DUF1700W

1 Answer

Noise Problem We purchased the above-mentioned Danby Upright Freezer about 3 years ago and are very satisfied with it. However, for the past week or so, it has become very noisy. When we open the freezer door the noise is quite loud and when the door is closed it is still noisy most of the time but nowhere as noisy as when we open the door. What could be the reason for this noise? Is there anything we should or should not be doing? Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance, Ab

Danby upright freezer plugged in a few hours ago, but coils on back are hot

If you are talking about the black condenser coli on the back of the fridge it is hot because the refrigerant is pulling all of the heat out of the fridge and trying to deposit it outside of the box. This is called hot box pull down. When the temperature inside the fridge comes down and you have product in it the coil on the back will become much cooler during operation. So if you are wondering it is nothing to be worried about, perfectly normal.
