Question about Danby DPR2262 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

We live in a jungle and have a Danby propane refrigerator. Initially it worked fine and when we had our first problem we brought it back to where we purchased it. They had no clue but called the manufacturer who told tham that the back components and water catchers needed to be cleaned. Worked ok again, but now heavy fumes even after we clean the back area with the brush and empty the water catchers. Also now it is not as cold as it should be and freezer is not freezing.

If you are detecting fumes, there may be a refrigerant leak.

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:

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?
