Yes it can be repaired but it might cost you more than a new one. check with local refrigeration company on quote before they come.

Can i remove the ice storage compartment from the sanyo 4433s and still use the refrigerator


Probably, provided that it's a storage module only. If it's an integral part of the ice production function I would say probably not. I searched "sanyo 4433s operation manual" & got a number of hits. Try manualowl.com & retrevo.com.

That's the refrigerant coming out. Major fix. I am not a ref tech, so I do not know if there is a guaranteed welding technique to do an effective weld on those refrigerator coils.

After someone cleaned my sanyo 3370 refrigerator it's on nut not getting cold.I hear a noise but not sure what it is.


it sounds like ice has built up on the evaporator. This is will prevent air flow that will cool the fridge, it will also touch the fan and make a noise.
You may find that the defrost heater has been dislodged from it's normal position and can no longer melt the ice on defrost.
You should get a technician to fix this problem

My Sanyo refrigerator (model SR-4431S) isn't cooling like before and certainly will not make ice... While scraping ice from the freezer compartment up top, I accidentally made a small puncture in the back...


Hi!
Before you can refill the system, you need to have the leak fixed. They have to evacuate the system, weld shut the leak, vacuum the system for 30 min. and refill refrigerant to proper level. This is a job that by Federal Law has to be performed by an HVAC Certified Technician. Take the unit to an appliance repair shop for repair, this way you'll save on the service call.

I need a new freezer section. Mine has a leak.


Hi.

Try first doing a complete defrost and cleaning the bottom of freezer after defrosted.
The freezer has usually a drain hole that may get clogged with ice and debris.

Sanyo sr-3620w Poked sensor under freezer tray...hissing sound


More than likely you let the refrigerant out. Is there an oily residue? If so you definitely punctured the evaporator. It's time consuming and expensive to properly repair a standard refrigerator sealed system and maintain the chemical stabilty that will prevent future problems. But with those tiny units priced as they are, it's always cheaper to replace them.

Freezer compartment on Sanyo SR-3660S


Nope. That's about $800 bucks in damage that only a licensed professional CFC tech could "possibly" repair with very specialized equipment. I'm afraid that was a fatal blow to your refrigerator.
