Danby DAR483BL Bar fridge

My bar fridge has started to freeze everything. I have unplugged and re-connected to get a LE code come up on the LCD panel and can't use the up or down arrows to change temp or the C & F button to change view.

Any thoughts? Is it as simple as the thermostat inside has gone?

There is a PTC relay on the compressor you need to replace it. Small black square looking device take the wire retainer clip off and pry off the relay. Get the wires going to relay noted and then get the model number and make of your unit. Go to a parts house for appliances and get a new one. About 25 bucks for that little dude but it is a needed for your compressor. Could get a 3 in 1 relay they are a lot cheaper and easy to install. let me know how it goes ken

Very simple. Call Danby at 1-800-26-DANBY and tell them the issues you are having. The reps there are very knowledgable and more than willing to help. I just had to replace a computer pad and they are awesome to deal with. FYI, the owner's manual does not have a parts listing. Good luck

Sounds like defrost problem. Could be fan motor, Defrost timer,or defrost heater. Try turning off for 8hr to melt ice then turn back on.If it runs and maintains temp for 24hr check and repair defrost Problem.

Make sure you clean the backside of refrigerator at bottom from dust. Make sure you have the recommended clearance from wall. Also make sure the food in freezer and frige have clearance to allow air to circulate around food. Keep playing with your controlls...The dails might be on wrong

Freezer not freezing, refrigerator not cold, frost on back wall of freezer, what do ii do?


You have an ice block if the fridge is not cooling and freezer somewhat is. There are a few options you have. First off the bi-metal defrost thermostat has to be replaced. This may be your only problem. The other two things you can check one it your heater. Once you remove the ice to can test the heater for continuity. The other is your defrost timer. Unfortunately you have a computer board that is your timer. You cant test this but you can see if it is working. If the box shuts everything down the fans in freezer and the compressor for 8-30 minutes than kicks everything back on chances are your board is fine. Now to fix your problem.
Option 1 only use if you have a backup fridge to put everything in. Transfer all your food to backup fridge. Unplug fridge for 48-72 hrs with doors cracked open and have towels surrounding the fridge for all the water. Remove back panel in freezer to check for ice block. **Remove back access panel and at the top of coils is your bi-metal. It has two wires going to it. Replace. Now to test the heater you will see the wires to the heater if you have a glass heats there is a pink and blue wire that run down your coils to the heater. Remove the heater and test for continuity. If you have a bar heater you will see two wires running up along the side of coils. You have a bar heater on this icebox. Chances are the heater will still be good. Now once everything is back together than give it a couple hours for temp to get back down before moving your food back.** If you have not heard the box shutdown. Dont put you food back yet give it three days and than check for ice buildup. If I block is forming again replace defrost board if not than it was just your bi-metal.

Option 2: If you dont have a backup fridge. Follow most of steps above once Ice is melted. Get a couple bath towels and a hair dryer. Now remove freezer access panel and with box unplugged start melting all the ice and letting a mojority of the water fall onto the towels. Now once all the ice is melted Take flashlight and look between all the coils. Ice can be hideing and your will have problems again. Now do everything between aristcrats above. Now if you have not hear the box shutdwon your board maybe out. Hopefully its just your bi-metal.

If you have a more question or need further assistance please reply.

My fridge stays on and freezes everything inside


not a breathing room issue, if anything that would cause it to shut down and not cool at all, where you got just the opposite, it never shuts off. is it an electronic model, or is there a control knob you manullay turn to adjust temp

Magic chef bar fridge


Have the same problem with my 3 year old bar fridge. I could hear a clicking sound like it was trying to come on. Unplugged it and bought a new one. I figure the cost to repair a $100 bar fridge may not be worth it. They will charge you to come out and then charge you for the parts. For a little over $100 I bought a new one.
On the new fridge, the freezer gets colder than the fridge part..but luckily for me, it is still under warranty (Manufacturer's). I'll call for a look see-who knows maybe that guy can tell me what's wrong with the other one, too. ;-)
