Question about Danby DAR0488W Refrigerator

1 Answer

This refridgerator is only two years old and power is going to unit and the thermostat is turned up and does not work. Does not cool. All I hear is a humming sound. Is there a warranty on this refridgerator. Store warranty is only 12 montrhs. Do we just through it out. It is only a small unit used in a small bedroom unit in a retirement residence.

The manual and documentation for the DAR0488W is available here: http://www.danby.com/product/DAR0488W/1 . The manufacturer's warranty was a 12 months limited warranty on the electrical parts, 3 months parts and labour, plus and additional 9 months parts only coverage. The plastic parts only had a 30 day warranty.

I do not recommend just throwing out the refrigerator. The refrigerant needs to be disposed of separately. (Even though it doesn't use Freon, there are restrictions on the disposal of the material.)

I wish that I had better news.

(If you had noticed any ice on the coils, my diagnostic would suggest that your coolant had leaked out of the unit.)

MAYTAG REFRIDGERATOR NOT COOLING


Check to see if the evaporator fan is blowing. Sometimes removing the back panel to expose the fan and hand turning it can make it come back on. If this doesn't work then the fan is bad. Also make sure that there is good circulation to the fridge side. Food can sometimes block air flow.

GE Profile Artica Side by Side Refridgerator isn't cooling.


You say fan seems to be working? it either is or it is not working. If you are getting a reduced airflow in the cabinet, it may indicate that the evaporator coil is iced up and needs to be manually defrosted.
