Question about Danby Refrigerators

1 Answer

I do not know how to make the fridge colder, the dial is not clear - is the wider blue line colder or the thinner white line. Until now we have set it in the middle, which just isn't cold enough.

Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting

You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

Why Is My Refrigerator Too Cold

How do you "warm" a Midea fridge do you turn dial higher (5) or lower (1)?

The higher the number, the colder the fridge gets. Is it too cold in the fridge?

What does o/w mean in a 2001 heritage softail wiring diagram?

That is the abbeviation used for the color of the wire. Yours is an orange wire withe a white tracer line going around it. IMPORTANT*
Do not confuse o/w Orange with a white tracer line with w/o White with an orange tracer wire. The first letter in o/w will stand for the primary color of that wire, in this case Orange.. It will be a bit thicker width on that wire. The second letter, in this case White, will stand for the tracer color, look closely, the tracer line is thinner than the primary line. This is so you can more easily trace wires on your bike. There will be more combinations of colors used on your bike, but they will all follow the same rule. Primary color is the first letter and is wider or thicker/ Tracer line is the second letter and the line will be thinner than the primary.

Same problem

If after cleaning your condenser coils at the back or bottom, checking your cold control dial, checking your door gaskets for leaks using the dollar bill technique and looking for some resistence when pulling it out, checking for any obstructions, etc. nothing works, then you will need to have it service - most common problem is defrost timer - If your defrost doesn't cycle on, your evap coils will frost over excessively and you will not get sufficient cooling - you can usually rule this out by turning off your fridge and manually defrosting them with a blowdryer until they are frost free and running your fridge again for a few hours to 24 hours and check the temps again (during this time I'd set the dial to coldest) and monitor regularly, if your temps are getting colder and colder (fridge below 40F and freezer below 0F, then your problem is a faulty defrost timer - or one of its related components. (Remember to set your dial to what it was)

If not - then next common thing is door gaskets and finally a sealed system leak, maybe a tiny one and very slow progressing one,a lthough I would be inclined to think this is not it at this point, but if you get it serviced the first thing they should check is evap fan for proper operation, defrost timer, door seals and then compressor.

I hope this helps.

Defy Fridge temperature dial is confusing - which way is colder?

0 = off, 1 = cool, 2 = cooler, ..... 7 = coldest.  0 - 7 Nothing to do with the degree the fridge is set to.

I don't know how to set the temperature setting on my Hotpoint RLAV21 fridge. The dial goes from 0 to 4. For fridges I have had in the past the higher the number the colder the fridge but I've got my...

You should have 2 dials one is the thermostat when you set it all the way one direction it will shut you refrigerator off. Turn it back to about the middle if there are no numbers. The other dial is the air damper between the freezer and the refrigerator. The fan circulates the air through refrigerator by this damper. If you open this open to much your food in the refrigeration section will freeze. Close it back to about 2 that will give you a colder freezer and should be about right for the refrigeration section.

Temperature control

I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
