In most combination units, the cooling coils are located to favor the freezer and a portion of the cooled air is moved by an internal fan through an adjustable vent into the refrigerator section.

When the compressor is running, look for vents in the rear of the fridge and check to see if there is any air flow noticeable.
If not, there is a good chance that the fan responsible for moving some of the frigid air into the refrigerator side has failed.

Accessing that fan for replacement is highly dependent on the design of the unit.

Get the complete model number of your unit and go to the link below, enter the model number in the search window to see if an illustrated parts breakdown is available.
These are useful in finding if this is a DIY project or not:

There is a TSB on this (TSB) = Technical Service bulletin. You need a service company to order part number W10599551 and put it on. This will fix the problem.

I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

My Danby refrigerator stopped working after the power went out over the weekend. I have adjusted the temp. dial but nothing appears to make a difference. Is there anything I can do to reset the fridge?


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.
