Summary: I purchased this refrigerator in 2013. It died in 2015. There are no service centers in my area and the major stores (Home Depot / Lowes) do not have service people to service this product. Do not buy it.
Summary: Bought this for a small office breakroom. Gets average use, less than that of a small family. Compressor started making noise, about $200 for the replacement before labor. Would have cost about $400 to fix a $500 fridge. Pathetic that stuff like this is out on the market. NO concern for quality.
Summary: Purchased on new, after 8 months this fridge sounds like a jet plane. so noisy i can't sleep, this went on for 4 more months, called danby and they said sorry, can't help you. no customer service, they stonewall you. looked into blogs, found others having same problem, also stonewalled.
Summary: All the reviews I have read have been from recent purchasers. These units work great at the beginning then the circulation fan starts to get noisy. This would be fine as Danby will stand behind their stuff except the fan replacements are not available!
Summary: Perfect apartment size refrigerator. It came with one shelf missing, but after a couple of tries, customer service provided the missing shelf. Since its a shorter refrig, i Love the freezer on the bottom.
Summary: When I read the reviews people mentioned that it was quiet. after buying I realized it wasnt quiet at all. In fact I had to move it from the kitchen which was close to my living room to the closet where my washer and dryer was. so I could close the door.
Summary: Too bad it does not have any shelf on freezer door. Also, it would be better if the place for soda or beer cans was not included and replaced with compartments for butter/cheese, etc. It's ridiculous to think that everyone drinks beer and soda.
Summary: Being an empty nester, I was looking to downsize on the cubic space. I have an eat-in kitchen, and with this size, it gave me more floor space. Ample inside, don't have to bend down, everything is at eye level, (except for the ice cubes), I am happy with the freezer on the bottom.
Summary: I've had it since for just less than a year and I like it so far. I like the space available for a small unit. The bottom freezer works best for this application (backup refrigerator). My only suggestion to Danby would be to make the freezer bin slide out nicely.
