The bright green substance will have turned black fairly quickly as it is mould from the vent pipe,clean out with clorine bleach and dry before use to clear mould/smell.

My Mini fridge Doesn't Get Cold, it's running, I've tried unplugging it for a day and then plugging it back in , still not getting cold..Looked at back and everything looks fine..Except..T


Replace the fridge compressor with another one, try a Google search and maybe you'll find result's for your specific fridge. If all else fails, then ring up your fridge manufacturer and talk to them about your fridge, and if you still have warranty and you complain hard enough, they might just send in a new compressor.

Something leaking from the vent inside the top of the refridgerator. It is a sticky substance with an orange color. Is it freon?


No, it sounds possibly like the glue that was used to seal the back of the fridge is leaking out. Maybe a defect, if your fridge is still under warranty, I'd call the seller to ask about what can be done from there. Freon is a gas.

The motor on my Sanyo Mini-Fridge goes out every 3 to 4 days. The previous surge protector it was plugged into shorted, and I think that may have something to do with it. What is wrong? It will work fine...


defective relay/overload combination if you replace them and it works, there's you problem, if you replace them and the problem continues, suspect a faulty compressor.

Fridge leaking oil on the bottom right side


OK, usually if you see an oily substance that you are sure is not from the fridge contents it's oil from the sealed system. When a leak in the sealed system happens the refrigerant gas leaks out and the lubricating oil also leaks out. I'm afraid you may be in this situation. As the refrigerant leaks out the cooling efficientcy drops off quickly and eventually there is no cooling at all. You would have to use a refrigerant leak detector "sniffer" to locate the leak and then have a certified company repair the unit. Sadly, the cost to do a compressor replacement and leak repair is 2/3's or more the cost of a new fridge...
