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?

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.

A funny smell and i think it might be the temperature


Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.

0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.

If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.
