Question about Danby DKC646BLS Full Size / Pony Beer Keg Cooler

2 Answers

Keg freezing!!!! I have my temperature set at 39 degrees, when I walked past the cooler today I noticed the LED display was showing "LE" and the compressor was running. I hit the temperature adjustment button and the compressor kicked off. I opened the cooler and noticed the beer line and partial keg were frozen solid! I unplugged the cooler and opened the door to thaw out the system. plugged it back and and it was ok for a day...came back today and had the same LED display, but I caught it before it froze my beer again. Can't find anything in the manual that explains what "LE" means????

    I have had this unit for two months and just last week I started having the exact same problem and have taken the exact same steps in an attempt to resolve this problem. Not too sure what to do next?

    I bought this unit last August (07) from Best Buy. I got home and the top was cracked. Brought it back and exchanged it. That one worked until I decided to try to change the temperature after using it for a few hours. The buttons on the display literally didn't do anything, the compression wouldn't turn on, nothing except the display read room temp.
    The next day, I brought the third one back and it has worked since yesterday, just a week or so short of a year. I'm not sure what happened, but my sister claims she was trying to cool off some hot food in it and noticed that it had gone all the way op to 50 degrees and so she tried to turn it down. I came along the next day and found a can of soda had exploded and the display read 18 degrees. This unit is only designed to go to 39, WTF. If would double as a kegorator and freezer I'd be happy, but right now it won't do anything except stay on until it freezes.

I've owned it for about a year and have not had any trouble. But my Danby Kegerator just started beeping and flashing EE on the display one day and it won't cool. I had to unplug it. Any ideas


An EE error code means that you have loose connections (loose temperature sensor connections) check all the wires for a loose connection
temperature touch pad
the units main control board
the control board is in the back of the unit there is a panel covering in the middle lower back near the compressorInside your unit on the left side in the lower rear theres a vented piece of plastic pry that off thats the temperature sensor make sure all the connections are tight
If the error does not clear then your temperature sensor is faulty
you can get a new sensor at
www.repaiclinic.com.or
or at
www.appliancepartspros.com
hope this helped
Good Luck!

Tip

Danby Kegerators


Just some general info on Danby Kegerators. The temp fluctuation is 32-42 degress thru out the day and for 1 hour a day you will get a temp of 46-48 degress during defrost. Unfortunatly there is no way to bring these coolers colder than 32 degrees.These Keg coolers need to be in a temp controled enviroment and if it is enclosed in a cabinet you need to have 3" opening on all sides for air to circulate. Some of the main fault codes are EE = open sensor and LE = which is a communication error between the display board and the main board. The LE error may be in the touch pad which gets moisture in the membrane and causes the pad to quit responded. A lot of the errors are caused by a loose connection. There are 3 screws that hold the table top down, once you get the table top up you'll see the connectors to the boards and sensor, just start removing the connectors, straighten the pins and reinsert them. Also if you ever have an issue with the fan motor, that part is no longer used on these keg coolers, the replacement board assm no longer has a connection area for the fan so the fan can be disconnected if it causes you issues. Another handy trick is to put turtle wax over the touch pad were you select the temperature, then that way the spilled beer will roll off the touch pad instead of ruining it :-)

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

The temp guage does not work and when the keg cooler is plugged in it gets down to 20 degrees and freezes the beer. Can this be fixed?


This solution probably costs more than you care to spend on the problem, but you can buy an external temp controller like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002EAL58
You run the probe into the fridge and plug the fridge into the controller. Then the controller will only turn on the fridge if it gets warmer than the temperature you specify.
You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay, too. I'm using this on a kegerator and can keep my beer at a consistent temp.

Beer freezes


The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.

  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat.

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.

Temperatuer gauge says LE


If your gauge displays LE, it is below 15 degrees F. That means your beer will freeze. The same problem occured on mine. I called Danby and the rep was very helpful. She informed me it was definately a problem with the temperature pad on the front of kegerator. The part cost less than $3 and shipping was $7. It was an instant fix and it was easy to replace. Remove the four screws to the tower on top, the three screws to the rear, and pull the top off. Flip it over and remove the two screws to the computer. Unplug the old and replace with the new. Very simple job. Due to the low price of the pad, I would order two. The shipping price is the same and I don't have to worry about another keg being ruined because I now have a spare on hand. Hope this helps.

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.

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.
