Danby installation instructions recommend that the refrigerator sits for a minimum of two hours before being plugged in, and is then allowed to sit for 12 hours cooling before food is placed inside. This ensures that the temperature is correct, and that food does not spoil.
To install a Danby refrigerator directly into a bar, the installation instructions are slightly different. In this case, the installer has to be sure that the refrigerator has plenty of ventilation. The unit needs approximately 2 inches of clearance on all sides and a minimum of 6 inches of clearance is necessary between the unit and the wall. If this is not adhered to, the unit is likely to be damaged, and the warranty will be void. The same installation procedure is followed for a Danby wine cooler.
As of 2015, there are also resources on the Danby website to help those looking to install refrigerators, including videos and downloadable copies of product manuals. Depending on where the refrigerator was purchased, the retailer may also offer installation services with purchase. This would eliminate any issues connected to installation by the owner. Local dealers and service centers that work on Danby refrigerators are available from the Danby website on entering the relevant zip code.
