Danby DPR2262W propane refrigerator stopped cooling


OK-to make this short-you either have a boiler tube blockage or Hydrogen diffusion.If your cooling unit quit suddenly,you more than likely have a boiler tube blockage due to precipitation of Sodium Chromate.If your cooling unit gradually quit working it's Hydrogen diffusion.This process is not easy to understand,and I won't bother you with the details as to why.By the way,burping is a myth,it dosen't work.If there is a blockage in your cooling unit turning your refrigerator upside down won't dislodge it.Danby dosen't make stand alone Propane refrigerators anymore,and since the cooling unit is foamed into the box,it's a throw away refrigerator.You will have to get a Servel RGE 400 made by Dometic.It's the same size as the Danby and I have those for a very good price.Go to: www.marvinspropanerefrigerators.com

My propane fridge will not get cold


You have described an Ammonia refrigerator. The chemicals in the system are Ammonia, water, and hydrogen. In a crazy system of events, heating the bottom of the unit will cause the chemicals to seperate and then reunite in a complete cycle.
If you have never smelled a strong ammonia smell, then yes, the upside down thing will many times work.
The chemicals can become seperated in the wrong areas of the interior components.
Perform the upside down thing for 24 to 48 hours. Return to normal. Pause it for minimum of 4 yours and try again.
If the burner is working correctly, then you should see some results.

To help propane fridge can you turn the fridge upside down for a couple of minutes. Is this true? What kind of maintenance can you do? It is about 13 years old. The freezer works well, but the fridge isn't...


Dont tip it upside down. if the freezer is working good then that says the cooling unit is working.if you look inside the lower section(the fridge) at the back wall inside. you should see a white wire clipped into the silver fins. move that white wire down about 3 or 4 fins to the left.this should help.

Dometic fridge 'check' light keeps coming on...won't cool


Yes , the check light is there to tell you that your out of gas yes this is true but the device which switches to power is not changing over which will not let the heaters work and will not start the process of cooling, I suggest to inspect the switch and ensure that this is the case first before consulting a mechanic.

Our Danby propane refrigerator has given us sterling service for about five years, but it has suddenly stopped cooling in the refrigerator box-the freezer still works. Any clues?


Having a simular problem; try changing your regulator on your propane tank. I'm try to find a new thermostat myself. Good Luck!
