Question about Danby 3.6 cu. ft. / 102 liter Chest Freezer Millenium DCF401W

1 Answer

My 19 year old daughter is going to University in Kitchener/Waterloo 7 hours by car from us in Ottawa. We bought her a Danby diplomat freezer from Walmart and then had to hurry home. She has pluged it in and it is humming and the light is on,but it has not gotten cold. She has it on the darkest setting. What else can she do? I keep hoping there is something she has not turned on etc, before she takes a taxis to walmart. We feel helpless so far away.....

Danby freezer

If it stopped working after being moved, check all the electrical connections. Also check no pipes were broken in the move. Is there any noise from the compressor?

My upright Danby freezer is not freezing? Do I set it on 0 or 7

7 is the coldest. Is this a new unit. You should hear and feel a click when you turn the t'stat on. If no click, then it is bad and need a new one.

My danby freezer is defrosting do I set the freezer on zero for colder or 7

7 is the coldest. Defrosting is set up at the factory. It may not be a problem. If it doesn't come out after say 2 hours, then the defrost cycle is faulty.

Taking out trays for cleaning

Usually the holes are deeper than they appear in the side walls. Lift the shelves just a hair and then push them left...the right side should now be outside the hole and able to be moved upward until left side clears.

Reverse this process to reinsert. Good Luck.

Would a bad thermostat cause my danby to not completely freeze?

Should operate 24 hours before putting anything in that is not already frozen. Check it again after it has run for 24 hours. Anytime you adjust the thermostat go one click at a time and wait 24 hours for it to stabilize.
