Question about Danby Silhouette Series DBC514BLS 5.3 cu ft Built-in Beverage Center Cooler, LED Display, Lock & Key, Holds 112 Soda / Beer Cans, and 11 bottles of Wine, Instant Rebate Available

1 Answer

Purchased in 2010. Temperature doesn't fall below 55F. Fan works. Sounds like compressor is working. Haven't physically inspected compressor. Used to cool to 39F.

Placed a separate temperature gage in the freezer to compare Danby temperature. Danby: 55F - Other: 44F. Fridge is cool but not cold. Is this a compressor problem and/or a Thermostat temperature sensor issue?

May be both. Is the evaporator blocked or have ice built up on it? If so there could be two reasons for that. Low on freon or not enough airflow inside the cabinet.

I have a 2010 30' cougar travel trailer, we have never used the air conditioner which is a coleman mach model, when I put it on auto and cool it blows cool air but never gets cold am I suposed to

Check the temperature of the air coming out the vent If it's more than 10 degrees below the air going in it's ok. If it's the same temperature, the condensing system may be not working. The compressor may just be a quiet one!

The compressor and fan run but the refrigerator and freezer compartment do not cool down to an adequate temperature. The freezer does not get below freezing (32F) and the fridge does not get below 55F

Check your compressor for over heat (put your hand on it without burning)
Check for ice on back wall of freezer and on the freezer coils (defrost problem)
Check cond fan in back of fridge.
Clean cond coils

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works

Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
