Question about Danby Refrigerators
Hi there :) I just bought a Danby mini fridge second hand and it has a temperature control with buttons that point up and down on the front of it and they won't move when I press on them . It's been plugged in for 24 hours and the temp is between 39-43 which is not safe at all . How do I set it colder ?
That is a question you should ask the former owner. Was it working properly when you bought it.Maybe they cannot even give you an answer.

you have pressed the defrost button that is why the compressor stops and would not come back on. there could be a temperature sensor on the thermostat or a timer where in it would only reset back after the temperature of the fridge warms up. try to remove all the food and let is sit for a while, plugged and watch if the compressor would kick in after about two hours or untill the fridge warms up. if the button is stuck, you may have to spray lubricant in the thermostat or replace the thermostat .

SOURCE: 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 colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?

SOURCE: Temp control moves on it's own
Mine was doing the same thing and it was really frustrating! I would come home and it would be 88* inside. I found out that this model air conditoner has had problems with moisture getting in the control panel and shorting it out when it's humid outside. I have the part number if anyone wants it. It cost me about $45 from Sears Parts.
