Re: Sanyo SR-4912M 4.9 cu ft refrig temp problems
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.

Over time, internal parts wear out. If you made all of the manual adjustments to the thermostat control and it fails to raise the temperature accordingly, then it needs replacement. Contact the manufacturer for replacement parts and instructions.
Hello, For me I think you have a problem in Thermostat switch contact. Or the rotary switch was not in good contact point, better check it and if still the same, proceed to check your thermocouple if functioning.
Hello,If the refrigerator is not getting cold, you need to answer some question. 1. check if the compressor is running. 2. Is the thermostat knob turn to the proper setting?if not reset it. then see if the compressor motor is running. The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts,it's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of these components. 1. The compressor 2. Thermostat 3. The overload, relay, or Capacitor 4. The defrost timer 5. The condenser fan motor. Thanks
is the fan operating,if so then check your damper vent door that throttles cold air from freezer to refrige compartment they can freeze shut and a hand held hair dryer will thaw them out,then adjust its control to make sure the door moves when control is adjusted
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.
Defrost the freezer. Door being ajar allows moisture to build on the freezer coil and stops air circulation. In frost free units this condition should clear itself after about 8-12 hours max. Locating and advancing the timer by rotating the clutch head screw clockwise slowly until you hear one click. This will start the automatic defrost manually.
Sounds like you're freezing up. You're going to have to shut it down and let it melt...a day or more. Clean your condenser below the unit. When you restart the unit, get a thermometer in there. Your temperature in F should be 5-10 in the freezer and about 40 in the fridge. Colder than that causes problems.
