Customer Reviews

Danby Designer 3.1 cu. ft. Compact Refrigerator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Danby Fridge I was happy to get a small fridge with it's own freezer, but a bit dissapointed with the water dripping from the top of the fridge section.....dripping water in my old fridge from the internal freezer was the reason i wanted this one. The back of the inside of the fridge freezes and anything that gets pushed back gets ruined. The Can rack in the door of the fridge is useless to me...i don't use this as a bar fridge but as my main fridge so more traditional door racks would have been nice. The Danby fridge that i had before this one lasted OVER 20 YEARS!! so i hope this one lasts at least 3 or 4. years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darling little fridge I have had this little guy for almost a year and love it. Compact and oh so cute. It keeps my frozen foods just right and my cold items just right too. Amazing how much room it has and all that it holds. If I could change one thing it would be the inside of the door. I don't need a canned drink section, but see where it would be useful if I drank canned drinks. The size is just right for the corner of my office. Overall it is super!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall Satisfied Overall I am pleased with the fridge. The only 'issue' is that it seems to be water running down the back wall that freezes. It's not a lot. It's just a few runs of frozen water. Not sure why & not sure what to do about it because if I remove it, it comes back. Doesn't interfere with anything though :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little guy,perfect for the price Pros:This little guy came box beautifully,it is really light-weight.I brought this for top Freezer for keeping things cool,even with a setting of 4(energy saver) things stay cool in the top and bottom.Spotless Steel is great,I can also put notes or receipts on it.Its easy to clean,just follow the instructions provided when setting up for the cleaning the inside of the fridge.This is a quality product by Danby. Cons:The only thing I don't like is the can dispenser,its a waste of space for those who don't drink soda or other beverage.Since I don't its a waste of space but I can put little things that can fit.The top of the fridge can get a little dusty but its really not that big of a deal.Yes,it is a little noisy for those who keep this in their room but since I am using it in my kitchen its no big deal.Even if you were using it in your room it shuts off because of the energy saving setting if you use a setting of 4-5. The reason I am giving it 5 stars is because this does exactly with its supposed to do.I am not factors in the Cons,those are just minor things.So far its working great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! I love my new mini fridge!! It works great and it keeps my drinks cold even though I don´t have it at the coldest temperature!!!! It is the perfect size and I love that it has a freezer. The only thing that bothers me is that it is that it is a little noisy, but oh well all fridges are! Totally recommend this product either for keeping drinks cold or for college dorms.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality I am a college student and expected this freezer to be perfect for my dorm. The setup with both the refrigerator and the freezer worked good. The problem occurred when the unit completely stopped working after 1 year of use. You would expect a fridge to last at least through 4 years of college instead of 1 year. Very sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Le frigidaire fonctionne très bien J'ai acheté le frigidaire pour ma sœur qui a été opéré au cerveau et placer dans une résidence pour personnes avec trouble de mémoire mais vue qu'il est à sa porté elle trouve toujours sont jus ou les fruits qu'elle désire prendre.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little fridge This is a nice little fridge, did find the bin more annoying than useful so took it out, also wish the pop slot on the door wasn't there, not everyone drinks pop. Other than these 2 things it is a really handy extra little fridge.

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.
