Refigerator in storage compartment

Hi
I have a 21DSRB that has a small refrigerator in the front storage compartment. Can someone tell me how to get it going I have been unable to figure it out?
Thanks
Chuck

It does take awhile to cool. As in hours. I didn't have to adjust mine, but others have indicated that their should be a temperature adjustment on the rear of the fridge. The upper right corner I believe. I haven't checked the rear of mine as it cools enough to keep the kids drinks cool and that's all we use it for.

So if U haven't left it plugged in to shore power for more than a few hours, do that first. It sounds like at least it's coming on based on the sounds you r hearing. If u have left in on for a few hours try getting to the rear and check for a temp gauge. I may try to get to the rear of mine this weekend just to be familiar with it.

If it the 1.6 cu ft. Danby model that is used in the WhiteHawk, it will definitely take some time to cool, and even then with the temp control advanced to as cold as it will allow, don't expect ice cold anything. Don't know if it's just not a good fridge or if the problem lies with being installed in the basement and there is no way to dissipate the heat from its operation which would seem to lead to less than optimal cooling of the fridge. I have used it once and was underwhelmed; considering removing it for the storage space I could gain.

Pulled mine out last night. Not impressed with its cooling ability, and we don't have kids that will demand cool/cold drinks. If I want something cold it's just as easy to step in the door.

It's slow too get cold but also make sure you have the dial set cold and not just to "on". I found I have to turn it to full. But then once cold mine gets very cold. It will freeze sodas put close to the ice tray area.

Chuck, I went out this morning to check mine out. I can not see the back of my fridge at all due to the paneling that surrounds it. But there is an access panel at the bottom of the paneling that I removed. There I found the temperature knob. Mine is set at 4 (from the factory) and can go up to 7. I probably wont have time today but plan to plug mine in with a fridge thermometer and record how cold its getting. Seeing how cold it already gets and the fact that I can still go up, I wouldn't be surprised if it can freeze drinks as newbold1 said...
