    I have the same issue with freezing. Water bottles are freezing solid and soda cans are bursting. The gasket seems fine but the compressor runs constantly, even on the lowest setting. I'm wondering if it could be the thermostat?

    Same issue, everything is freezing.

    I have the same problem also. I have taken to turning the unit off in the morning & then turning it back on at night to keep things from getting warm.

    The refrigerator is freezing cans and they explode. We've cleaned the coils and tried everything we can think of. Can a thermostat be installed yourself or do you need to make a service call?

I ordered a new thermostat (about $40 with shipping) & installed it. It's pretty easy to replace. The fridge has been working fine since.

I had this same problem and was able to fix it after consulting the manual. Turn the fridge off and let it come to room temp. Turn it back on but make sure the temp dial is turned to MAX. Leave it on max for a couple of hours then turn it to desired temp. That fixed my problem.

  • Pros: Attractive

    Cons: Thermostat, approximately 1/5th of the unit price is a weak link.

    This refrigerator broke within 14 months. Our primary use was as an overflow unit for soda and produce, therefore it wasn't subject to a lot of abuse. Sanyo was VERY unhelpful when we contacted them for assistance, basically blew us off because it was out of warranty.

    I have a Sanyo SR-4910M refrigerator. It continues to freeze everything inside. I have attempted to fix it using some suggestions that I found on line but it did not fix the problem. I was thinking that...


    fAN MOTOR MAY NEED REPLACED. THE EASIEST WAY IS TO TAKE OFF THE BACK PANEL IN FREEZER AND REMOVE THE FAN
    MOTOR, TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST APPLIANCE PARTS STORE WITH YOUR MODEL NO.
    EASY JOB.

    WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
    THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
    AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
    OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
    REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
    RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
    TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
    OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

    The refrigerator either does not keep things cold or with a minor adjustment it freezes everything.


    Most likeley there is ice buildup in the venting between fridge and freezer. Then when you try and adjust the control it either goes way too far one way or the other.

    Ice buildup, not cooling well


    The ice build up on the cooling coils prevents you fridge from cooling properly. You need to unplug it and allow the ice to melt. When the coils are free of ice, the fridge should work better. Hope this helps you.

    My fridge stays on and freezes everything inside


    not a breathing room issue, if anything that would cause it to shut down and not cool at all, where you got just the opposite, it never shuts off. is it an electronic model, or is there a control knob you manullay turn to adjust temp
