20 Most Recent Danby DFF9102BLS Top Freezer Refrigerator Questions & Answers


Im having the same problem! Every 2 weeks we had to power off the fridge and defrost the freezer, once we did that it was like brand new, cooled the botton fridge beautifly. Now we have to defrost every week. Its really irritating and dont know why we gotta defrost the freezer all the time to have the fridge cool down. We had a 3 month warranty and ofcourse it started to get messed up after the 2 months were up. Are you having the same problem?

Hi!
That is probably the compressor relay
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay

Thank you for using fixya

If the refrigerator isn't cool, you need to answer some questions, then see if the compressor is running. First, answer these questions: Is the refrigerator completely dead? If so, see “It's stopped completely.” Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? If not, reset it. Next, see if the compressor motor is running The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these: The compressor The Thermostat The overload, relay, or capacitor The defrost timer The condenser fan motor

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.

Its probably the heater element. The Thermal cutout should be closed circuit. The bimetal can be open or closed depending on temperature. I am not familiar with these fridges. You will need to check the wiring diagram. Some open when they get warm, to allow a neutral path some close to complete the electrical circuit. Check for continuity of the bimetal when its been in the freezer overnight, then remove it and check if it goes open when warm (Or vice versa) If yours is an electronic defrost, it could be the board.
