Sanyo 4.9cu.ft. compact refrigerator heats rather than cools

Sanyo 4.9cu.ft. compact refrigerator Model SR-4912M - after 20 months of great service, it 'died' yesterday.... warmer inside than room temp.... thought I'd left the door ajar but it didn't cool overnight. Unplugged for a couple of hours today, plugged in, turned on.... sounds like it's trying to work, then there's a loud click and it starts 'heating'. Seem to remember the clicking occasionally all night.

I'd already picked up a replacement (B&D 2.7cf) before I found the website and asked the question,,,, hoped for a quick fix answer and I'd be able to return the B&D.... oh well. With 'designed' obsolescence and 'disposable' appliances, Robert L's answer confirmed my 'fears'.
Now I'm trying to find someone locally (Conroe, TX) who would like to 'recycle' the Sanyo (everything but the compressor/motor is in great shape - door, glass shelves, etc. maybe even the coolant which I don't want to 'dump' in a landfill.

My Sanyo refrigerator (model SR-4431S) isn't cooling like before and certainly will not make ice... While scraping ice from the freezer compartment up top, I accidentally made a small puncture in the back...


Hi!
Before you can refill the system, you need to have the leak fixed. They have to evacuate the system, weld shut the leak, vacuum the system for 30 min. and refill refrigerant to proper level. This is a job that by Federal Law has to be performed by an HVAC Certified Technician. Take the unit to an appliance repair shop for repair, this way you'll save on the service call.

Thermostat switch comes on but fridge does not cool


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.


If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…


Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Burning smell and dead mini-fridge/kegerator


If the compressor is being used for extended times without resting or getting the product cooled, could be the problem. On small refrigerators the inside is sized for the work load. The condenser coil on back or in some cases under the outside skin of the refrigerator is designed to cool the area inside by releasing the heat from inside.. You may need to modify your cooler to handle such loads with more cooling capacity and condenser with fan to help bring the product temps down more efficiently. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sanyo SR-4912M 4.9 cu ft refrig temp problems


Greetings macx,

The average refrigerator temperature is between 35 & 38 degrees. The maximum temperature a refrigerator can be before bacteria begins to grow is 39 degrees. It would be my recommendation to exchange this unit if you can at your local retailer. If this was purchased at Best Buy, you have a 30 day return/exchange policy on this item with no restocking fee.

Thank you,

Agent Dort
