Any owners of Danby all-fridge and/or all freezer?

laughablemomentsDecember 4, 2012

Hi All,
I just figured out that Danby makes a 17.7 cu. ft. all fridge that looks pretty nice, and the reviews seem decent overall. Any longer time owners around that have experience with these units?

Here is a link that might be useful: Danby all fridge at H. Depot

These were in the running for me but the problem was the depth and the side clearance requirements. If that isn't an issue for you, I think for the money they are good little units.

We have mostly danby units where I work, not this exact model however... they've been in at least 5 years now. I don't know of any that have had problems, the interior lighting is good, glass shelves, decent crispers. If they'd have fit I would have seriously considered at least the all fridge.

Thanks for your input, Deedles, it's encouraging.

Is there something I should know about the side clearance requirements--what are they? I went back and looked at the specs, and didn't see anything about it? Do they need a lot of space to the sides?

As I remember, the side clearance was wide... like 4". I couldn't afford the space (+ the depth). You have to look for clearances in some of the manuals either on the Danby site or AJ Madison...

Thanks, Deedles, I've off to do some more digging at the sites you mentioned. : )

I know that you are looking at the Danby, but I really love the Frigidaire all-frig. We needed counter depth though.

I had a smaller, all fridge when I was doing my prolonged kitchen renovation. It was fine, especially for a small fridge but it did need a fair amount of air circulation around it according to specs, and would not work closely boxed in very well, because of this, I would think.
