Danby DAC7003 cycling

I have a danby dac7003 that seems to be cycling the compressor on and off. Originally I thought it was the thermostat switch that was malfunctioning and had bypassed it with a jumper, however the problem continues. It seems to kick the compressor on for about 10-15 min then it turns off and the fan runs for about the same amout of time. Is there another thermal protector that could be faulty here?

    Looks like you're on the right path. I went outside and noticed that it was unusually hot. There must be an internal overload protector or thermal switch near the armature of the motor. Turns out there was a bunch of pine tree needles and such lodge in the rad portion of the rear of the unit from the inside. It was causing very little air to flow through. Wasn't noticable till I took it apart. Go figure a little bit of cleaning can go a long way. Blowing nice and cool now.

Could be a freeze protection (low pressure) switch, high pressure switch or the compressor could be cycling on internal overloads.

How do I determine reason that my Danby Dehumidifier isn't cycling on to compressor for more than 3-4 seconds at a time? Fan always runs but compressor only kicks in for 3-4 seconds then back off.

I would say low on gas or bad switch/thermostat.
The compressor probably has a shutoff for low freon. You would need a set of gauges to check for that.
Bad thermostat? You'd need a ohm meter.
User error? What kinda settings or controls do you have on the control panel?
There was a recall on these in 2014 for catching on fire.

Is there a freezer thermostat that is compatible with this modle

Converting a refrigerator into a satisfactorily operating freezer is quite the difficult undertaking if possible at all. It would require much more than changing to a different thernostat that cycles the compressor at a lower temperature. The key word here is "satisfactorily".

Danby Kegerator runs but does not Cool

sounds like maybe no coolant in system if compressor is working. you know like in your car a/c unit, sometimes refrigerant needs to be added. just a guess, I'm not an expert.

Power failure. Seems to be dead; even the pilot light is off.

Check socket, fuse and mains cable. Check on/off switch, then thermostat and compressor relay. If power to all of these it is the compressor at fault.

Defrosted it and now when plugged in, not getting cold.

If the compressor is running then it ought to cool. If not shut if down once again wait for few hours and keeping the thermostat in the normal position switch on.
If there is no cooling check if the compressor is working, If the motor speed seems dull check for capacitor being weak, gas pressure being down.
Though it seems strange that a defrosted fridge does not cool and we must suspect the compressor..
