Question about Danby DAR482BL Compact Refrigerator : black all fridge 4.4 cu ft

Open Question

Bought in May. The temperature keeps dropping

Danby, DAR482
Bought in May. The temperature keeps dropping from 40 sometimes well below freezing. I waited hours before I plugged it in, so I don't think I blew the condensor. Besides it worked fine for several months. It did this for two weeks, then stopped for over a week, now just started again. My daughter may have gotten one of the outside temp control buttons stuck, but how would I fix that?

SOURCE: Keg cooler dropping below freezing (DKC644BLS)

Thirsty, you didn't provide a Make or Model number with your post. It's difficult to find parts without that information. However, given your symptoms, you should look closely at the control board on this unit. It is most likely the culprit. The flashing display gives it away! BUT, why did it blow out? 3 things could lead to that; 1.) shorted out temperature thermistor inside the box. (it is very small, less than an inch long... probably behind a protective cover. It tells the computer what temp the box is at by temp variable resistance values.) If I were working on this myself? I'd change it out along with the Control Board. 2.) Simple electrical failure of the control board (moisture, etc...) 3.) Unit suffered from a Power Surge. Do you have it plugged into a surge suppression device? If not, you should. Tracy

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Temperature on Keg Cooler (DKC644BLS) is dropping below freezing

Mine did this as well. last night the diplay read "LE" and the temp controls and the C/F buttons were unresponsive. I called Danby. Although I was on hold for 30 minutes, when they did answer they were very helpful. As mentioned elsewhere here, the touchpad has gone bad. You can order it right over the phone. The price of the touchpad is only $2 and shipping is $7. I ordered 2 of the touchpads (why not, right?) and the shipping was still $7 for the both. # for Danby is1-800-263-2629. Make sure your phone is charged.

SOURCE: Accidental defrost

I did the same thing. I know it's a little late now but for anyone that does this again here's what to do. There's a thermostat in your actual freezer you might not be able to see it, because it might be covered in ice. It looks like a tiny tube, To stop the defrosting all you have to do is warm up the thermostat either pressing a hot towel agaisnt it or meltling the ice with a dryer (but be careful)! After a minute or so the red button should pop out again and the refrigerator will start humming again. Unplugging the refrigerator will not reset anything and don't try to pop the red button out of your own!

I have a Danby fridge with a numbered temperature dial. Does the higher the number mean a colder temperature? All my stuff keeps freezing


Keep your freezer to the mid point, and your ref to mid.
Wait 24hrs for results. If your refrigerator is still freezing, you may need a new thermostat. Get the model number, and go to searspartsdirect.com and look up the thermostat. Sometimes it's also referred as cold control.

My dehumidifier ices up any suggestions thanks evan


Evan, a dirty or clogged air intake filter can cause it to freeze, as well as obstructed air flow around the unit. Maintain a minimum or 12" clear air space all around the dehumidifier. Also operating the unit in temperatures below 40 degree (F), will also cause the coils to freeze. In addition, low refrigerant in the compressor can cause the coils to freeze. In which case, recharging the gas should solve the problem, And finally, worse case scenario is that the defrost cycle sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

If you find you need parts and/or service and don't want to tackle it yourself, go to the Danby link below and enter your Zip Code.

Frig keeps freezing


most often the problem lies within the cold temperature control failing to properly turn off and on the unit. when it freezes, its running more than it should. you will have to replace the cold control. But do to the complexity, and possibility of making costly errors in installation, i would recommend you find a reputable service company for help. start with anyone danby recommends.

Would a bad thermostat cause my danby to not completely freeze?


Should operate 24 hours before putting anything in that is not already frozen. Check it again after it has run for 24 hours. Anytime you adjust the thermostat go one click at a time and wait 24 hours for it to stabilize.
