Question about Sanyo SR-4310 Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kegorator conversion I'm having to replace my kegorator with a conversion kit on a Sanyo mini fridge. (model# SR4310W). 2 questions, 1. Can I remove the freezer unit? if so, how would you reccomend this be done. 2. I want to poke a hole in the top for a line out to a tower tap, worried about rupturing a freon line by blindly drilling. Are their any spots to avoid drilling?

Refrigerant lines are normally visible on unit's like this. There should be a condenser coil mounted to the outside back of the unit, or underneath the unit, with the compressor. The condenser coil is the one that get's warm or hot when the unit is running.
As for the evaporator, or cooling coil, it is what get's cold when the unit is running, and is normally mounted along the top or back of the unit. As long as you avoid puncturing any of these two coils, you should have no problem drilling holes. However, if this is a conversion kit, there should be instructions for where to drill the holes. If you just bought a refrigerator with the intent of converting, well, you'll need to look the unit over real well using the directions I've given above. The only other thing to look our for is the suction line and liquid lines leading between the inside and outside of the unit. You should be able to find where the enter into the cold box on the inside, and where the exit the cold box on the outside, near the compressor/condenser coil. Manufacturers normally use the shortest route between the two to save material, so you should not have to worry about anything in the top surface. One way to tell is if that surface heats up when the unit is first turned on from not running.

How to I change handing of fisher & paykel 2 door fridge


Hello friend
Not your machine but this is how it is done for standard Fridges , They are all similar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEcPVbOjdUE



Extract From the fisher & paykel website user guide ....it seems to be all about the handles.
http://www.fisherpaykel.com/vault/pdfs//pdf_usecares/5339_NZ_AU_ActiveSmart__HR.pdf
Door conversion
If you need to hinge your door on the opposite side we recommend that you call your local
Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer or Dealer to make this conversion.
ActiveSmart refrigerator models with silver handles need to be ordered at the point of purchase either with left or right opening doors and can not be interchanged.
All other models need to have an appropriate conversion kit for that model refrigerator.
The kit is available from your Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer or Dealer. Full instructions are
included in the conversion kit.
This does not apply to French door mode

Puncture hole in my kegorator


Yes, find a licensed refrigeration technician. They will solder the hole and recharge with refrigerant. It should then be as good as new (or however old it is).

Re: Sanyo SR4310W mini fridge freezer plate broken


Ok, I know I should not have done this but I did. I was impatient with the defrosting and stabbed my Sanyo SR3770s' evaporator with my Smith and Wesson switch blade knife. A very tiny hole, made a swooshing noise and now the fridge won't get cold. Can this be repaired for a minimal price? Perhaps just replacing the evaporator plate and reinstalling some freon, maybe, hopefully?
Let me know. Basically a brand new unit, hate to see it go to the dump!

Very simple. Call Danby at 1-800-26-DANBY and tell them the issues you are having. The reps there are very knowledgable and more than willing to help. I just had to replace a computer pad and they are awesome to deal with. FYI, the owner's manual does not have a parts listing. Good luck
