Customer Reviews

Danby Designer 1.8 Litre Compact Refrigerator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Danby fridge is very useful to me. I love it! I am disabled and need to remain lying on a recliner to control my pain. With my Danby all fridge, I keep it full of my Diet Dr. Pepper soda and use my reacher or grabber pick-up tool to : while sitting on my recliner, reach over, open the fridge door, grab a can of soda and close the door without needing to get on the wheelchair to go out to the kitchen any more! I love my Danby All Fridge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FRIG! I purchased this compact refrigerator for my husband's outbuilding. It's not heated or cooled but this frig keeps its' contents super cold. The shed can get really hot in the summer but cold drinks are always available with this refrigerator. It doesn't overwork itself either. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect little fridge for the garage or office. This fridge works great the only thing you have to be careful with is the temp adjustment just move it a little and I mean a little at a time or you'll freeze your soda or water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it . BUT Perfect size, I did not want a freezer section. Only drawback is there is no thermostat, top shelf fluids can get almost totally frozen.

Yes, please allow it to sit upright for 6 hours before plugging it in.
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.
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.
Our refrigerators are not designed for outside installation. This also includes anywhere that is not temperature controlled. ie. garages, porches, carports, etc.
We do not recommend using an extension cord.
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.
