Question about Danby DCR34 Compact Refrigerator

4 Answers

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!!

Hello, so my freezer is blowing air that smells like dead fish. It’s a Frigidaire but no idea what year. We just moved in and the fridge hasn’t had anything in it in over a month at least and has been kept...


Spray the inside of the fridge with a 50/50 mix of bleach and water and close the door. Leave for 15 minutes. Spray again and rinse off with clean water. Buy a packet of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda and put a couple of tablespoons on two plates top and bottom of the fridge and leave it in there. The smell will be gone.

I can't get a regular temperature in my old brown Danby Inglis frig . It is freezing every item in the frig even at the lowest ajustement. Can you help me?


Most likely temperature control thermostat needs replacing. Also check damper between fridge and freezer. If mechanical, adjust where less air is going in fridge section. If not mechanical, but electric, damper door may not be closing.

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...)

Countertop kenmore microwave, large, brown, old...whar is model number...I need to manual


Sorry, but you can't get a manual without the model number. You can find help locating your model number here.

If the manual doesn't address how to change the bulb, or you don't see an obvious bulb cover, then you'll have to remove the outer cover.

Be sure to unplug the oven first.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
