Question about Danby DCR34 Compact Refrigerator

Pressed a button, now fridge won't work

I have a very old mini brown Danby Ignis fridge. I'm not sure where it came from or how old but as I was putting groceries in, I accidentally pressed this button in the center of the low, medium, high knob. (assuming it's the temperature knob??) As soon as I pressed it, the fridge stopped running. The button stuck and won't pop back out. The light still works. Please help!!! This is my only fridge. Thanks!

    I have the same problem with my refrigerator. I hit that stupid red button by accident that is in the middle of the temperature knob and now my refrigerator is not working...(the light is on but it isn't cooling). Wondering if defrosting is the only way to get the darn thing to work?

You have pressed the defrost button that is why the compressor stops and would not come back on. there could be a temperature sensor on the thermostat or a timer where in it would only reset back after the temperature of the fridge warms up. try to remove all the food and let is sit for a while, plugged and watch if the compressor would kick in after about two hours or untill the fridge warms up. if the button is stuck, you may have to spray lubricant in the thermostat or replace the thermostat .

I pressed the red defrost button as well and while I was Unloading all of my food I turned the dial all the way left (counter clockwise) to the "0" on my dial (the one with JUST the dark and light blue gradient, no numbers) and then turned it back on and it started up again!!

Just plug it in and give it time to run, it could take up to 24 hours to reach the set temperature. Try plugging it in before bed. =)

I had my Danby premier mini fridge stored in sthe garage for a while and just plugged it in. Nothing....., no sound, nothing...anything special I should look for?? Appreciate your help.


turn the temperature nob all the way to full then all the way to minimum. (the red button you press to defrost the fridge probably needs to be reset...)

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!
