Question about Sanyo SR-4910M Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

My fridge stays on and freezes everything inside

I have a fridge inside my basement bar that stays on and freezes everything inside (pop, milk, beer). The fridge is enclosed in a cabinet; there is no more than 1/2 an inch on both sides, probably 3-4 inches of space in the back. Is the lack of "breathing room" the issue? Or do I have sensor/control issues, OR something else? Thanks

    My fridge does the same thing every few weeks, more often lately. It is not enclosed, so I agree it is not a question of breathing space. Suspect it is a broken thermostat.

    It has a control knob inside the fridge to set the temp. I think I read somewhere else that this may be the "cold control" - is it worth it to replace, or would it cost the same to buy a new cheap small fridge?

    I have the same problem. Manual dial temp control. If you turn the control to Min, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, it doesn't seem to matter. Once the compressor turns on, it is on all the time and the food freezes. Sounds like a temp control problem. Can this part be replaced?

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

yes it sounds like your only problem is that the evaporator fan is not operating so open the freezer door and see if you hear it. if you do not hear a fan running in the freezer make sure that the other fan in the back and the compressor is running. just replace the evaporator fan in the freezer and that should do it

Freezer was freezing ice cream rock hard and refrigerator liquids( ie. milk, beer) was only a little cool. how should i adjust the number settings?


Don't do anything too quickly here. Move the freezer number one digit warmer and fridge one digit cooler today.

Check temp (and icecream) tomorrow. If not satisfied, move one more digit on the freezer or fridge until you are happy.

Fridge keeps freezing up


Then replace the thermostat. It's cheaper that wasting all that beer. Seriously I think your thermostat is broken and stuck on coldest setting. Sea Breeze

Freezer not freezing ice cream and milk


Icecream is a tough call. Some brands have to many artaficial ingredients and that doesnt get solid. What temps are you getting in the freezer? Is everything else frozen solid?
