SOURCE: frig keeps freezing

most often the problem lies within the cold temperature control failing to properly turn off and on the unit. when it freezes, its running more than it should. you will have to replace the cold control. But do to the complexity, and possibility of making costly errors in installation, i would recommend you find a reputable service company for help. start with anyone danby recommends.

SOURCE: Can i get my danby model no DAR604BLS to be colder

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I have a very old Danby fridge and don't have a manual. The temp dial is from 1-7. Is 7 the coldest or is 1 the coldest? It's not keeping anything cold and it's on 7.


You could try

operatingguides.com

if you need a user manual
or

servicemanuals.co.uk

if you want the schematics etc

We've used them in the past and found them very good.

Also if it is not listed then ask via the link and they
will probably be able to get it for you.

Defrosted it and now when plugged in, not getting cold.


If the compressor is running then it ought to cool. If not shut if down once again wait for few hours and keeping the thermostat in the normal position switch on.
If there is no cooling check if the compressor is working, If the motor speed seems dull check for capacitor being weak, gas pressure being down.
Though it seems strange that a defrosted fridge does not cool and we must suspect the compressor..

the smell you get is bacteria from the condensate(it is similar to the legionaire bug)cover all electrics and spray with a strong clorine bleach solution.and because it gets a little greasy(check your windows)all the dust and s..t sticks to it....the clorine will clean it off.also when degreased use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust.
some people only clean behind there fridges once every ----- years.
treat the back of a fridge the same as your bathroom for cleanliness.
