Danby DPR2262W propane refrigerator stopped cooling


OK-to make this short-you either have a boiler tube blockage or Hydrogen diffusion.If your cooling unit quit suddenly,you more than likely have a boiler tube blockage due to precipitation of Sodium Chromate.If your cooling unit gradually quit working it's Hydrogen diffusion.This process is not easy to understand,and I won't bother you with the details as to why.By the way,burping is a myth,it dosen't work.If there is a blockage in your cooling unit turning your refrigerator upside down won't dislodge it.Danby dosen't make stand alone Propane refrigerators anymore,and since the cooling unit is foamed into the box,it's a throw away refrigerator.You will have to get a Servel RGE 400 made by Dometic.It's the same size as the Danby and I have those for a very good price.Go to: www.marvinspropanerefrigerators.com

My propane fridge will not get cold


You have described an Ammonia refrigerator. The chemicals in the system are Ammonia, water, and hydrogen. In a crazy system of events, heating the bottom of the unit will cause the chemicals to seperate and then reunite in a complete cycle.
If you have never smelled a strong ammonia smell, then yes, the upside down thing will many times work.
The chemicals can become seperated in the wrong areas of the interior components.
Perform the upside down thing for 24 to 48 hours. Return to normal. Pause it for minimum of 4 yours and try again.
If the burner is working correctly, then you should see some results.

Fridge & Freezer smell like a gas grille...


Do you mean it smells like propane? Or does it smell like propane exhaust (think taxi cab or fork lift)?

Either sounds pretty serious. I have heard of people using hydrocarbons to recharge refrigeration systems, though it is not the recommended method.

Do you own your residence or do you rent? Either way, call a repair man or the management of your rental right away and insist to have it inspected.

Fridges might smell like plastic or stale air if not used in awhile, but not propane/exhaust that I have ever heard of.

A funny smell and i think it might be the temperature


Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.

0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.

If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.

We have a Danby fridge model #DPR2262W, bought about 4 years ago for our cottage that has no electricity. Yesterday an acrid smell came out of it and later in the evening the carbon monoxide detector went...


Thanks very much for your offer and your effort. After about another hour I got ahold of someone at the company who suggested some solutions, so I'll try them out. Thanks again.
