20 Most Recent Danby DAR482BL Compact Refrigerator : black all fridge 4.4 cu ft Questions & Answers

That cup, or the hose that it leads to, out the back and down to the bottom is plugged. It has to be cleaned out so that when the freezer automatically defrosts, the water will run into the cup and down the hose to evaporate in the tray under the compresser. You should be able to pull that cup off to clean it. The hose is a little awkward to get to , but if you cdan blow through it, everything should good.

It looks like this unit is discontinued.

You can get an approximate idea of the cu. ft. by measuring the inside dimensions (h x w x depth) in inches, multiply them together, and divide by 1728.

As for the noise, it could be the condensor fan rubbing on the fan shroud (if the noise is outside of the box) the evaporator fan rubbing the fan shroud inside the box, or any number of other things.

Turn off the refrigerator and remove the power cord from the wall socket.
Unscrew the thermostat / dial and gently pull it out of it's holder....
There is a tiny pipe on the back of the thermostat / dial.
Gently pull that tube out of the pipe that it is in.
The most likely reason for the lack of cooling is that there is a layer of gunk on that tube.
Take coarse cloth or pot scrubber and clean that tube gently...
Replace the tube in the pipe and see if refrigerator runs properly....
If not, new refrigerator needed....

The tray is located inside the toe panel at the bottom. Remove the tray carefully for cleaning as it will be full of disgusting effluent.
