Question about Danby Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hi :) I'm just wondering how to set my temperature control on my Danby fridge ?

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.

SOURCE: Pressed a button, now fridge won't work

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 .

Maybe, the compressor isn't starting? I'd take it back to where you purchased it.

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.

I can't get a regular temperature in my old brown Danby Inglis frig . It is freezing every item in the frig even at the lowest ajustement. Can you help me?


Most likely temperature control thermostat needs replacing. Also check damper between fridge and freezer. If mechanical, adjust where less air is going in fridge section. If not mechanical, but electric, damper door may not be closing.

Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...


If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

The temperature controls in a refrigerator are typically mechanical. The mechanism could have become disconnected during transport. You can remove the housing inside the refrigerator and reconnect the linkages to restore temperature control.
