Check for frost build up on rear inside wall of freezer, if no frost, then you may have a damper control (located in top left rear portion of frig) stuck in the partially closed position. Another prob could be thermistors on frig side are defective. I would suspect damper first. Open refrig door, stick your hand up in front of "vent" looking are on top left side, see if you feel air, then push in on light switch with your hand and with other hand while hold light switch see if you have more air coming thru when you push light switch. If not I would suspect damper assembly.

May be your computer board, not turning on the defrost heaters in the freezer section. The freezer will eventually get warm too. Are you getting frost build-up on the rear wall of the freezer? If you are, you can temporarily solve the problem by turning off the whole refrige for a day and open up the freezer door- put towels on the floor under the freezer doors. Then turn it back on - mine worked fine again. I am currently waiting for a computer board replacement. It is behind the metal plate on the back (outside) of the cabinet. Good luck.

My danby wine cooler does not get cold enough


Cool enough? You know most wine and beer only like it about 50 degrees and not any cooler. If it up at 55 and you have set it lower then the room is probably warmer then it can handle to cool them. I have some in the garage but in July and August the struggle to stay any cooler then 55 but then they are not expensive units either. Danby is cheap brand too. Nothing they make is that great.

This cooler's operating range is 40-65 F. If it is still in warranty contact the manufacturer. You could have a faulty thermostat. If so have it replaced.

Cooler wavers between 35 and 45 degrees.....even after turning the controls to colder. Would this be the thermostat?


Probably... OK I am going to fill you in on something here that almost no one knows. The True coolers all use a thermostat that reads the coil temperature and has no idea what the box air temperature might be. They are all pretty much the same but have a few different variations. For most beverage coolers though they are getting the coil down to around 13-15 degrees and then shut off and stay off until the coil gets back up to 38-40 degrees.This means that the air temperature can be anywhere from 23 to 50 degrees at any given moment but the product temperature is going to average out in the middle. If the box is full no problem the temperature swing will not be anything like this because the product will keep the temperature more stable. If the box is empty you will need to put SOMETHING in there to help stabilize the temperature before panicking. 3 or 4 gallons of water will do. Also if you want to sleep better at night put a thermometer in a glass of water in the cooler to get a better idea what your product temperature really is and don't put too much faith in the cheap dial thermometer mounted to the outside of the box. Oh and set the dial on 5 and if that doesn't work the thermostat could be a problem... they are the weak link in these units.

Beverage-Air Kegerator Not Staying Cold


It can take a very long time to get a keg of beer down in temperature. The heat transfer from a keg is slow due to the lack of air circulation inside the keg. You should also check your condenser coils, make sure they are clean. Door gasket should also be in good repair. Hope this helps.

Temperature 94 in refrig. normal in freezer


Check to see if refrigerator door is lower than freezer door. If so remove toe panel, (bottom front). Under refrigerator door hinge at bottom right is adjuster for door. Adjust upward so door is even. On some models when door is too low it causes light to stay on some times, raising ref. temps.
