If the refrigerator is only 5 weeks old please do not attempt any repairs. Sanyo can send a service tech to your house to fix the problem. If you attempt a repair it will void your warranty and then you will have to get the wallet out. So call Sanyo first. Another thing to keep in mind, if the refrigerator is frosting up turning the control to a colder setting will only cause the problem to get worse at a faster rate. So set it back to a normal setting and get sanyo there fast. Good luck. I really hope this is helpful to you. mca0824

Refrigerator only works on max


Usually when a compressor is running low on gas it will freeze up on any setting but if it only works on max the thermostat is most likely no good cheapest thing to do would be to order a new thermostat 90 present of the time it takes care if the problem

My Sanyo SR-3770s mini fridge is too cold. It is not a mini freezer/fridge combo, just a mini fridge. The problem occurs whenever the fridge is on. All I have looked up for fixing a fridge that is too cold...

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Do the kenmore refridgerators have a daily defrost cycle? If so, how long does it last and what is the temperature fluctuation? The freezer is empty right now, and the temperature fluctuation seem to go...


All refrigeration products have a defrost set point. Most residential units defrost about every six to eighteen hours. This process should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The temp goes up so high inside because there is a heating element in the coils to thaw any residual ice. The temp should not exceed about 45 degrees though. If it does the the compressor is signaled to come back on and start cooling again. This is perfectly alright. The time at higher temp is not enough to spoil the food. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Sanyo SR-4912M 4.9 cu ft refrig temp problems


Greetings macx,

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.

Thank you,

Agent Dort

Temperature control


I would suggest buying a little refrigerator thermometer.
Turn the t-stat all the way up to the coldest setting. Watch the thermometer by checking it from time to time when it reaches 36 to 38 degrees slowly turn the t-stat down till you here the compressor shuts off. Remember water freezes at 32 degrees.

Refrigerator will not stay cold


Bought a second hand fridge that was running well. We layed the fridge on it's side for moving and let it stand upright for at least 4 hours. The moving was only 45 minutes. The freezer is semi-cold but the main body of the fridge stays at aprox. 68 degrees. Any solutions.
