Question about Danby Freezers

Which direction do you turn the unmarked dial to make the unit DCF550W1 colder? You would think that there would be some type of indicator other than a blue coded graph without any explanation what it means.

Electrolux freezer will not turn on automatically when termperature warms in compartment, controls don't appear to turn compressor on, any help would be appreciated?


Sounds like your thermostat is bad. You probably have to replace it and the sending unit also. Big job! Look for a manual at : http://www.servicemanuals.net

How to make my freezer colder


Hi, some thermostat control knobs and directions to make it colder are different. Here is the best way to find out which way to turn it to make it colder. Make sure you hear it running. Take the control knob and listen carefully while you start to turn it in one direction first. Turn it until you hear the unit shut off. If you turn it all the way to the left and it keeps running, turn it all the way to the right until it stops running. Once you know which way it stops running when you turn it, this will tell you that you need to turn it until it comes back on again and runs. This will be the way it turns to get the temperature to get to a colder setting. When you are doing this, do it very slow and give it about 3 minutes in between each time you start to turn it the other way. On mine it has numbers on it. The higher the number lets say from 1 to 8, the colder it gets, but some are the lower the number the colder it gets. So, you want it to shut off, so wait until you hear it running before you turn the knob. You can open the doors and it will make it come on faster. So when it goes off when you turn the control knob, you will no to turn it the other way for it to come on and it will get colder the more you turn it in that direction. Very easy. PS If it doesn't get colder when you find out which way it goes, you may have a bad thermostat. Please let me know. You can put a thermometer inside to watch the temperature
Good Luck,

Freezer is not cold enough.


Turning it to the right will make it colder. It will only regulate the temp. by few degrees, so if your thinking there will be a big change there won't be.

Freezer not defrosting between cycles


Check the defrost timer for operation if your unit has one. Some Delfield models have solid state controls. If your system has a timer for the defrost you can open the timer cover and turn the dial in the direction indicated by the arrow until a time peg comes up to the time of day marker. You will hear a loud click and the compressor will shut off. Defrost should take place. The inner dial of the timer will have some indication as to how long in minutes the defrost should take. If the pointer does not move while in the defrost position the timer motor is bad. Turn the dial again so the copper pointer goes past the time of day marker and the compressor should restart. Replace the timer.

Thermostat differential on a Bev air ef48-1as


Having to manually defrost an automatic defrost system tells me there is a problem with your defrost timer. Most Beverage-air freezers have a Paragon timer. There are two dials on these timers. An inner and outer dial. On the inner dial is an arrow to indicate the direction of rotation as counter clock wise. On the inner dial is a copper pointer indicating duration of the defrost cycle.

Observe the copper pointer, no movement indicates that the timer is bad.

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 colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
