Question about Sanyo SR-9510W Refrigerator

1 Answer

Excess frost and condensation

The model number of the fridge is a Sanyo SR-9510W. After the last 2 times I defrosted it:

- items placed in the freezer quickly develop a layer of frost, that gets thicker quickly with time. It's a significant amount of frost, more like a layer of snow, that did not form on freezer items previously.
- the freezer compartment itself develops a thick layer of ice very quickly, such that it needs to be defrosted again after about 2-3 weeks
- the outside of the freezer compartment develops a lot of condensation, such that a significant volume water drips onto the items in the refrigerator

I've tried using higher and lower temperature settings, but the first time this happened I did not change the temperature setting from the time before (before this problem occurred).

Thanks for any help or advice.

Could be that it is not getting a good seal when the door is shut. Check for obstructions causing that and check the door seal to see if it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: excessive frost build up inside the freezer

Your problem is not a recall it is the fan and how many items you have in your freezer. Is it stuffed pretty full?

SOURCE: excessive frost buildup in bottom freezer section of Kenmore refr

In my case, this happens when the drawer does not seal properly. If I am aware of this, I don not have the snow build up. My problem is why the drawer doesn't always close properly, and it is inconsistent. There is no adjustment. Anyway, if the drawer seal is the slightest bit open, snow-like frost will build up in freezer. Mine is a GE pds20mcrbb

Fridge is warm freezer is cold


Hello Abo Karin,

You are likely experiencing a DEFROST failure
(most commonly a defrost PCB failure)...
part number 67006740 item 5 on your exploded
case view (top center as viewed from the front).

There are typically only three (3) elements to a DEFROST
power control circuit:
- Defrost Printed Circuit Board ( PCB as noted above)

- Heater element to WARM the EVAPORATOR

- DEFROST thermostat... inhibit excess heat
(closed circuit at freezing - Opens at room temperature)

Check your defrost pan...
there should be water there DAILY...

IF not: you are assured that your DEFROST fails.

Per your DESCRIPTION...
You need to look for a SUDDEN REASON (huge air leak)
why FROST would form so quickly...
USUALLY a big pizza box... BUT ANYTHING blocking a
TIGHT DOOR SEAL will cause massive frosting.

It is taking moisture from the WARM ROOM AIR and blocking your evaporator...

a PROPERLY functioning defrost circuit would remove that frost
at least DAILY... and the EVAPORATOR fan would properly chill the refrigerated side blowing cold air from the FREEZER.

Yes ... all INTERIOR panels must be in place for the refrigerator to function properly.

Hope this helps

Your part... (see video instructions)

LG 262SQA Model fridge cannot cool


That does not look like an LG model number, but regardless, it sounds like the defrost system is not working, allowing frost to build up and block air flow over the cooling coils in the freezer (where all the cooling for the entire refrigerator takes place). Take back panel off inside freezer, melt frost / ice with a hair blower. Test for continuity through defrost heater and replace if "open". If it was OK, problem could be deftost control, or as simple as a door not fully closed at some time, allowing excessive frost build up.

Model SR-L39. "no frost" dec


The defrosted water that drains to the drain tank has leaked when the fridge is defrosting,it can be due to some puncture in the drain hose from the freezer ,specially when the temperature is high this can be more . You can set the thermostat a little lower to reduce the frosting , also keep a flat tray under the drain tank so that the excess water can be collected and disposed.
If you can check and see if the drain pipe is damaged.

Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem. Freezer is cold, fridge is warm. About a month ago, had the problem of frost build up in freezer, water pooling under veggie bins, warm fridge. ...


If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Freezer coils frost up within minutes after being turned back on


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Glass shelve on bottom over grisper is broken Sanyo SR-9510W


You didn't say what size or model Sanyo you have, but the solution is easy. I have a Sanyo under the counter refrigerator in which the glass over the crisper is 1/8" thick frosted glass, 16" by 6 3/4" with the two back corners cut off diagonally. The frosting is simply to prevent you seeing through into the crisper below. It is maybe fifteen minutes work with a piece of window glass and a glass cutter to make a replacement. My full size refrigerator uses 1/4" glass since it is much larger and I have replaced it myself this way. If you don't have a glass cutter -- they are cheap and available in all harware stores -- you should be able to get any hardware store to make the cuts for you. They are accustomed to making custom cuts for people replacing their own windows. The have, and I use, what is known as an oil cutter which is a lot easier to use than the little hardened steel wheel cutters you will get if you buy a cheap one. Those work fine for straight cuts. Oil cutters make curver cuts equally easy to do.
