Question about Refrigerators

There's a loud humming in my danby kegerator after about 25 minutes of being plugged in. Everything was fine for about 2 months. The model number is DKC645BLS. Any ideas would be welcome.

Your symptoms are classic. What you are hearing is the starter relay trying to start a warm/hot compressor by supplying it with an extra jolt of electricity, but because of the faulty compressor (or if you are lucky a faulty relay) that's warm (cool ones start more easily often) is refusing to budge into motion and compress the freon. When it doesn't run, the fridge and freezer don't cool.

Maybe a locked up compressor...is it cooling at all?

check your owner manual but it should have a 5 year sealed system warranty..

Just plugged in my new 12 bottle Danby wine cooler and it hums, LOUDLY. Any idea why?


it might , it has a compressor and that would make more noise under a strain . refrigeration units strain when the box is warm. let it run and bring down the temp of the box and then see how much noise it is making . 12 hours should do it.

I have a danby kegerator and the code LE keeps flashing


Sounds like a faulty temperature probe or faulty temperature control circuit. Some modify their unit with an external temperature controller. It does require knowledge of wiring to perform the modification. There are detailed notes, images, etc provided by psychodad at

Good chance the compressor is going bad. It will likely die shortly.

Lori, the Danby Humidifier, Model # DDR2504 does not have a heating function. It's just a 25 pint dehumidifier. In fact, there are no Danby Dehumidifiers that have a heating function.

By, chance do you have Multifunction Air Conditioning unit, rather than a dehumidifier? If so, please provide the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

it sounds like your compressor is failing to start ... that usually means a bad starting capacitor ... if thats the case it will hum loudly for a few seconds periodically .. thats the compressor trying to start but it cant if the capacitor is bad .. it will stop humming when it gets too hot .. a thermal breaker will turn off the power until it cools back down .. dont let this continue since it will eventually damage the unit ... replace the capacitor .. the capacitor is usually mounted on or near the compressor .. it often has two sections .. one for the fan motor and one for the compressor ... since they are both in one case you have to change them both ,...
