Question about Danby (DAR604BLS) Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Danby refrigerator model DFF501WDD02 that I am going to use to ferment lager beers. I have a Johnson Control electronic temperature sensor that I need to install to insure a constant temperature. Am I safe drilling a small diameter hole in the side of the refigerator to install the sensor?

Draught (or Draft) beer is almost always un-pasteurized and therefore is more fragile. It should be consumed after being "tapped", and is generally truer to the flavors of the ingredients as pasteurization exposes the beer to heat and changes the flavor profile. Always use brewery approved beer line if you want to have foam free fresh tasting beer. Serving it through a plastic tube from the hardware or discount store or the plain vinyl tubing in your beer tap system you will wind up with a foamy, off tasting beer. Real draught beer is not pasteurized. It must be kept refrigerated between 35F. and 44F. A beer will become wild, turn sour and cloudy in a day or two. Below 44F. a keg of draught beer should last 20-30 days before it loses it's fresh brewery taste and aroma. Craft beers (micro brews) tend to have a shorter shelf life and you should contact the brewery for their recommendations. Why does my beer foam up? The 3 most often causes of beer foaming up are: The temperature of the beer keg The balance of the draught beer system pressures The cleanliness of the draught beer system I would suggest that you clean or replace the beer transport tube...

SOURCE: new danby kegerator - tastes like rubber hose

There is a check valve inside the coupler of the danby kegs that cause this problem. The valve is mainly there to prevent beer from back-flowing when changing the keg. Next time you change your keg check for a little black plastic retainer and also a small white plastic ball inside the coupler. Remove those (or just smell it) and you should notice that this is the taste/smell your beer has. I removed mine after this discovery, and there isn't any issues with the taste/smell since. I've heard this is a common issue with the Danby D coupler systems. Also, you won't have any issues with beer backflow when you change the keg, provided the line going to the tap is empty (which usually is if keg is kicked).

SOURCE: I have a Danby small refrigerator model DCR412BLS.

You need to check the Condenser coils, these are copper coils of tubing usually located on the back of the unit. They need to be free of all dust and grease to work at maximumefficiencyand it is recommended to clean them every 6 to 10 months. If those coils are already clean, the next thing to do is check the evaporator fan(The fan inside the unit). See if it's running. If it's not, check the coils behind it. If the coils are frozen up then you probably have to change out the fan motor.If they aren't frozen up then there may be a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor*. In order to legally reclaim, recharge, or test refrigerants you need a special certification2_bing.gif from the EPA. If you need to do so I recommend you call in a certified technician.
*To replace the compressor you need to reclaim and recharge the refrigerants from the system.

At what temperature should I be fermenting my beer? Is there a correct temperature?


If you are making your own Ale, then around 65-70 degrees F is a good temperature. Largers ferment better around 50 degreees F.

Be careful because if you ferment your beer too warm it could have an unpleasant flavor. And if you make the temperature too cold, the yeast might stop working. So it's hard to get the balance right but experience helps.

Does the type of glass you use for draught beer matter in regards to the style of beer?


According to beer manufacturers, yes. This is especially true for wheat beers. Most wheat beer glasses are specifically designed to tall to help trap yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass so that it does not blend with the rest of the beer while you are drinking it.

You don't need a diagram. The present control just makes and breaks the line voltage to the compressor. Just put your other thermostat in place of the original and you are set. Just two wires: line in and line out.

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.

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.

Wont cool below 50 degrees


Seems like the T-stat may have a dead spot on it since it started when you changed the settings. It is possible to trick (short) the t-stat to cause it to cool FOREVER, that would check your refrigerant charge is good. Would lean more toward t-stat problem first.
