Sanyo Ref heating/warming of the case and body

The lamp of the unit got busted and noticed that the left and right side (outer) is getting warm. The temp is quite hot (hot enough to feel uncomfortable when touched). I had an electrician check the grounding, found ok.

This is not a fault. some of the hot pipework is led across the sides and across the transom between fridge and freezer to prevent condensation

All filters are clean on unit but while warming up it locks out on warming temp. If all filters are clean what else would cause this fault?

check , is the fan is working or not. a fan is used for cooling the lamp,( through out till it is on.) if the fan is not working the lamp will get over heated and the worming message will come.check it first.

Refrigerator stocked!

Leaving the refrigerator is storage for a period of time should have no ill effects. From what you say, I have to guess that the refrigerator's outer case is warm to the touch, specifically in the area around the freezer opening. That is not a problem, it is designed to use "waste heat" from the cooling system to warm this area to prevent condensation from forming there without having to use the extra energy required if an electric heater were used. It will be noticeably warmer while the compressor is running and has been running for a time than if the compressor has been off for a period of time.

Whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water

not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue

Refrigerator body get warm

Many refrigerators use the waste heat extracted from the inside of the refrigerator to warm these areas in order to prevent condensation from occurring there. It is more efficient than using an electrical strip heater to do the same thing. This is perfectly normal.

Freezer and Ref. are warm

i assume this is a frost free type. the fault may well cure itself.
to hasten the process, remove the back panel inside the freezer and you will probably find the pipework frozen up. melt of the ice carefully with a hairdryer making sure you don't heat any stats that are clipped on the pipework

Green Tint on half of the screen

This is most likely a defect in the optical unit (about $1500.00 part). If out of warranty probably will just have to live with it. Those op units are also hard to get.
