Try to unplug it again let it set 5 min and then plug it back in. If that doesn't do it you may have to replace the compressor relay where the wires hook to the compressor, thats a fairly easy fix on that unit.

I got the stepping Santa 3 years ago. This season it just stopped. No music, no movement. I tried pulling the head off to adjust the dial - mine does not have one. Now he's headless. Help!

Points to a faulty power supply, but no information on fixing a beheaded Santa!

replace the ptc overload relay on the compressor body,it merely unplugs and a new replacement plugs in,available from any appliance parts distributor,they get weak and will not stay "latched" to keep the compressor powered due to high heat and current draw after so long

Tempature control isn't working

You probably have a bad touch pad assm. Moisture gets into it and it won't allow you adjust the temp. If you need the part I can get for you.

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

It's the Danby "auto-defrost" feature. It cycles off every 24 hrs to defrost, at which time the temp rises (as the unit isn't running!). Not much you can do. By the way, the blue LED temp display isn't accurate. It NEVER gets 36 (liquid temp) inside the Danby unless you do the following: Open the door and look to the back left. There is a small grate covering the temp sensor. Remove the grate and place the sensor into a small cup of water. The sensor will now read the "liquid" temp inside the keg, and not the "air" temp. The Danby will then cool the inside to a more beer friendly temp, and should not only cut back on foam, but taste better.

Too warm

somehow the freon has leaked out, verified by compressor running long times without stopping.
