It can be problem with gas getting blocked, due to that fridge section not getting cold. Try burping. This process releases an air lock and allows the chemicals to return to the proper levels within the ammonia absorption unit. -------- Burping for Danby propane refrigerator models, turn the unit off and let the unit cool. Disconnect the gas supply line. Carefully rotate the unit counter clockwise to it's left side. Let the unit sit in this position for 15 to 20 minutes. Rotate the unit counter clockwise upside down so it stands on it's top. Let the unit sit in this position for 15 to 20 minutes. Rotate the unit counter clockwise to it's right side. Let the unit sit in this position for 15 to 20 minutes. Rotate counter clockwise back to it's upright position standing on the legs. ----------- Once the gas fridge / freezer is operating, let it chill down for approximately 12 hours before loading with food. You will notice the freezer will chill first. When the freezer portion is significantly chilled down, then the fridge section will start to get cold. This is the nature of the gravity operation built into the system. The refrigerator section is the first to be effected by any change to the thermostat, ambient air temperature, humidity, or change of door opening cycles. Load warm or room temperature foods in smaller portions a couple hours apart. Let the unit stabilize for a few days prior to making adjustments to the thermostat. Check the refrigerator compartment temperature first thing in the morning to get an accurate reading of the thermostat setting. We suggest to use an external thermometer to monitor the temperatures. Do not overload the unit with room temperature liquids such as large jugs of water. Load the freezer with Ice trays or objects to be frozen prior to bed time. This way the unit will have all night to recover. Aluminum Ice Cube Trays make ice much faster than plastic trays.

Care for your propane refrigerator or freezer
Because there are no moving parts in these gas refrigerators and gas freezers, there's not much maintenance needed. One very important thing you can do to keep the unit working to it's maximum efficiency is to periodically clean the flue. The flue will soot up due to impurities in the gas. The dirtier the gas, the more soot will develop. Turn the unit off and let the flue cool for awhile. Place something over the burner orifice to protect it from the falling soot. Place a rag or piece of tin foil under the unit to catch any falling soot. Remove the baffles from the flue (if any). Be careful!! They may be hot. Use the Flue Brush and gently scrub the full length of the flue. Rotate the brush a few times to get all the soot possible.

One other common occurrence is debris in the Burner Air Intake. If the gas fridge or gas freezer has been sitting for awhile, spiders like the smell of propane and will make webs in the burner area and the unit will not light or burn with a dirty foul flame. Dirt, dust, pet hair, insects, lint, or anything migrating behind the gas fridge will increase the chances of the burning running foul. If the flame tip is yellow or orange, then chances are, there is debris in the Burner Tube and Air Intake. It is very easy to remove. Turn the unit off. Using a piece of 1/4" flexible rubber hose, just aim it at the Air Intake of the Burner and blow through the other end to clean out the debris. Using compressed air or "air in a can" works well also. Be sure the unit is off and cooled before using "air in a can" since it can be highly flammable. Re-light the unit and visually check the flame. It should be a crisp blue flame with a white or yellow tip. To prevent debris from getting into the burner tube and creating this problem, it's a good idea to vacuum under and around your gas refrigerator or gas freezer often.

This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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

I bought at Dometic propane/ electric fridge for my cabin last year. It has not run properly since. The fridge will light and run for a while with a blue flame but sometimes in the idle mode it goes out....


I have to ask, what is idle mode? I've never seen one that runs on idle mode, in a RV in 15 years. Has anyone used a manometer and tested Inches of water column in propane supply to fridge, as well as other appliances?
Any I've seen run on propane, are either on, (flame present, or off, no flame present.) Flame goes out completely when not calling for cool.

Does my old propane fridge have a element ?


Propane refrigerators have a gas burner to create the heat for refrigerant circulation. Some propane refrigerators that were used mostly in RV's also had an electric heat element that ran off a power cord or 12 volt battery.

To determine this look at the back of the refrigerator, you will see a gas line that ends in a burner on the lower left side (looking from the back). Just above that about 4 inches will be wires coming out of the box if an electric heat element is used.

Our Danby propane refrigerator has given us sterling service for about five years, but it has suddenly stopped cooling in the refrigerator box-the freezer still works. Any clues?


Having a simular problem; try changing your regulator on your propane tank. I'm try to find a new thermostat myself. Good Luck!
