SOURCE: There's a loud humming in

Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. When it doesn't run, the fridge and freezer don't cool.

SOURCE: Temperature - Is fan supposed to constantly run or is it controlled by thermostat

You said ,Top half of Danby DKC645BLS refrigerator 10 degrees warmer than bottom half. Bottom half cooling to approx. 34 degrees.

Is it running all the time without cycling off and on as it should be doing?
Sorry to have to tell you this news.
But this would mean a bad thermostat or insufficient freon in the cooling system.

The same issue with the fact that one compartment is warm and the other is cool!

Let me know that service tells you!

Thank You

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).

Sounds like a faulty temperature probe or faulty temperature control circuit. Some modify their unit with an external temperature controller. It does require knowledge of wiring to perform the modification. There are detailed notes, images, etc provided by psychodad at

it sounds like your compressor is failing to start ... that usually means a bad starting capacitor ... if thats the case it will hum loudly for a few seconds periodically .. thats the compressor trying to start but it cant if the capacitor is bad .. it will stop humming when it gets too hot .. a thermal breaker will turn off the power until it cools back down .. dont let this continue since it will eventually damage the unit ... replace the capacitor .. the capacitor is usually mounted on or near the compressor .. it often has two sections .. one for the fan motor and one for the compressor ... since they are both in one case you have to change them both ,...

Motor making loud humming noises and kicks out. Could this be a capacitor on the motor going bad ? This doesn"t happen all the time, but frequency is increasing.


this is the motor overheating and, the overload shutting down the motor: check to see if the motor belt is binding

Danby microwave does not heat food and makes loud constant noise


IF the noise is a sound coming from the oven area, its the megatron tube. Typically, replacing the megatron tube is more expensive than replacing wiht a new unit and a new warranty.
