Question about Goldstar GR131CN Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

GR-051 SF Compact Refrigerator

Hi Joe,

Don't laugh but I just saved a compact refrigerator from going to the recycle bin at work and I wanted to find out if it's worth trying to save. I don't want to spend $50 bucks to have someone fix it when I can add a few more dollars and get it new. Ok, sorry, the problem it seems to be having is it turns on just fine and begins to get cold but after about 5-10 minutes, it shuts off and you can't hear the motor running anymore. Does that sound like it will be a easy fix?
Thanks. Donna

Maybe the sealed motor-compressor is getting to hot and the safety thermostat Ibi-metal) cut the input line. You may have a stiff motor; this could cost more than 50$ to repair.

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


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.
