Danby Designer 17 Cu. Ft. Apartment Size RefrigeratorDAR170A3WDD
While this elegant and spacious refrigerator by Danby may be big enough to live in, we don’t recommend it. What it is recommended for though is for people who are looking for a reliable and dependable refrigerator unit without freezer space. This all-refrigerator serves up 17 cubic feet (480 litres) of cool, frost-free storage area. Don’t let its size scare you away though – premium rollers ensure the refrigerator can be moved with ease. The stylish appliance features a single door with an integrated handle and a clever reversible hinge which allows you to set it for right or left-handed opening. The neat and tidy interior is illuminated by a powerful LED lighting system which makes it easy to organize the two glass-covered vegetable crispers, the integrated door shelves, and the four adjustable glass shelves. An integrated audible alarm is also included should the door ever be left ajar. There’s considerable room for large and tall bottle and this top-of-the-line unit comes with a worry-free 18-month warranty on parts and labor along with convenient in-home service.

Danby Designer 17 cu. ft. Apartment Size Refrigerator is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great appliance Works great. Having a separate freezer and refrigerator gives us more room in both. Easy to clean. Love the digital thermometer, no guessing. Would recommend this as a purchase.

The temperature range of Danby’s refrigerators are between 32F-39.2F/0C – 4C. This is the normal temperature range for food safe appliances. Our refrigerators are capable of maintaining a wider range than the specified temperature, however it is recommended that the temperature is maintained between32F-39.2F/0C – 4C for food safety. Minor temperature fluctuations of 1-2 degrees are normal during operation as the refrigerator is equipped with sensors to maintain optimal temperatures.
Doors can be reversed on the majority of Danby’s refrigerators. Door reversal instructions can be found in the owner’s manual.

Danby’s refrigerators and freezers operate at a sound level between 35 and 46 decibels. This is within the normal decibel range for modern refrigerators.
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.
Yes, please allow it to sit upright for 6 hours before plugging it in.
This is normal. If you feel like it is coming on too often, adjust your temperature setting.

Information pertaining to watts and amps can be found on the rating plate located on the back of the unit.
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.
We do not recommend using an extension cord.
Our refrigerators are not designed for outside installation. This also includes anywhere that is not temperature controlled. ie. garages, porches, carports, etc.
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.
There could be one of two things happening. You have the temperature set too high (too cold) or you are leaving food right under the vent or up against the back wall.
