Smart Move.


Drawing inspiration from mid-century styling and simplicity, Danby’s patented Contemporary Classic collection of compact refrigerators reimagine retro for the modern consumer. Featuring Danby’s exclusive retro-inspired curved door design, metallic door and chassis finish, door lock, rubber-grip ergonomic chrome handle and stylized chrome worktop, its exterior features are only outmatched by its signature black interior. Boasting 2.6 cubic-feet (73 liters) of storage and cooling space, it features two and a half chrome-trimmed tempered glass shelves for maximum storage versatility. There’s more than enough room for larger bottles and the spacious unit helps keep electricity bills in check with its Energy Star rating and state-of-the-art mechanical thermostat. Maintenance and cleaning are as simple as can be with the automatic defrost system. It also includes an efficient CanStor beverage dispenser and reliable interior white LED light. This model is built for convenience as the reversible door hinge allows you to adjust it for either left or right-handed opening.

Our refrigerators are not designed for outside installation. This also includes anywhere that is not temperature controlled. ie. garages, porches, carports, etc.
The temperature range varies based on model. Please consult your owner’s manual or the product page on the website.
Please refer to your product on
Information pertaining to watts and amps can be found on the rating plate located on the back of the unit.
It is common for new units to have a slight plastic smell. Ensure you have removed all packing material from the fridge. If that does not help, clean the inside of the unit by following the cleaning instructions included in the owner’s manual. Once completed, place an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb any remaining odours.
This is normal. If you feel like it is coming on too often, adjust your temperature setting.
Have you recently opened and then closed the fridge (over the last 1-5 minutes)? If so, being unable to open the fridge again right away is an indication that your door seal is working well. An example of this is you open the fridge, grab a yogurt then close it, but then you decide you want a pudding so you try to open it again but the door seems stuck. When you opened the unit the first time for the yogurt, heat and humidity entered the fridge. When you closed the fridge, this heat was sealed into the unit. If you go to open the fridge again within 5 minutes for the pudding, it might be difficult to open the seal. Wait 5-10 minutes (this allows the hot air in the fridge to cool), when you try opening it again there should be no problem.
This varies based on model. Please refer to your owner’s manual. If your knob is a dial that has a blue strip, the darker blue/thicker side indicates the coldest setting. If it is numbered, the highest number is the coldest setting. If your model has a thermostat with temperatures in °C /F, set it to the coolest temperature.
Yes, please allow it to sit upright for 6 hours before plugging it in.
