Question about Danby Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a Danby fridge model #DPR2262W, bought about 4 years ago for our cottage that has no electricity. Yesterday an acrid smell came out of it and later in the evening the carbon monoxide detector went off. We are an old couple and the instructions said to move it to clean out something or other. We can't do that and have nobody here in Provincetown, MA who will come out on the back dunes (we need 4 wheel drive) to fix it. Anyone available on Cape Cod, or any suggestions about what we can do ourselves?

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

HI there is a small rectangular metal panel on the rear of your fridge with 1/4" screws, remove this panel and check for burn marks or arcing, make sure you unplug the unit first, if you see black marks or it smells bad you have a bad board, you need to change the board inside that panel, runs between $175-200 to buy.

the smell you get is bacteria from the condensate(it is similar to the legionaire bug)cover all electrics and spray with a strong clorine bleach solution.and because it gets a little greasy(check your windows)all the dust and s..t sticks to it....the clorine will clean it off.also when degreased use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust.
some people only clean behind there fridges once every ----- years.
treat the back of a fridge the same as your bathroom for cleanliness.

Hole burning through floor of Freezer


Your refrigerator is likely a frost free model. There is a heating element that runs around the freezer compartment. It is probably the heating element that is causing the original damage to progress.

Most fridges have a way to turn off the frost free part, usually via the timer or or easy as pulling the fuse for the circuit. Pull the fridge out, climb behind it, unplug fridge, and remove access cover, if equipped. Look for a wiring diagram. It will tell you where you need to disable the frost free at.

If you can't disable the frost free, then replace fridge now. the acrid smoke you smell is toxic, and is detrimental to food, as well as to human life. Stop using the fridge, or disable frost free.

Smells like burned


Since power outages aren't always polite and absolute, your fridge may have been subjected to low line voltages for an extended time and gee, Whirlpool still hasn't figured out how to protect their product from this kind of damage. We lost one the same way years ago in CA; we came home after being gone for hours, smelled the fridge, checked the line voltage which was wandering around 25 volts +- ~2 volts. Enough to burn the compressor windings but not enough to start it.
In that case, the electric company paid for the compressor replacement on our two-year-old Whirlpool. If you can dig up anyone who was noting the line voltage, maybe you can file a claim with your utility.
