I am not familiar with this unit but in guessing but I would not assume the thermistor is bad, actually if as you say the compressor is running that is all the thermistor can do. My first guess is the condenser needs cleaning, that is the area where it gets warm. If that is clean then the possibility of a refrigerant leak is there. If not that then the compressor most likely has a bad valve in it. I would suggest contacting a refrigeration tech after everything has been cleaned and it still does not cool.
The compressor is the part which cools the refrigerator.----------
First i will explain the working procedure of your sanyo refrigerator.----------
In the refrigerator, there is a part called compressor, the compressor is the part which cools the freezer section, When
the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In
this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in
the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets
cold.--------- So the freezer section cooling/ freezing is must.If freezer is not getting properly cooled or not getting cooled, then fridge section will show the low or no cooling problem.-------------- In your refrigerator, its quite possible that compressor is got weak, nor complete faulty but little bit weak.So when you open and close the fridge or freezer door , the compressor is not that strong to maintain the required temperature.So its working hard to cool inside temperature, but its not doing it quickly as it should.---------.----------
In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this
Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling
agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its
recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx
the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor
replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------You can get required parts
from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect
online site. --------- ---------------- There is manual reset procedure, sometimes the ice gets frosted all over and blocks the ventilation's for cool air to pass from one section to another, and this also causes problem.So directly going for compressor inspection, before that you can try manual reset procedure and see if that helps.---------
The manual reset procedure is as follows : ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit
completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice
collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted.
Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to
main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both
fridge and freezer section. It will take approx 4 to 6 hours for your refrigerator to regain its regular cooling/ freezing .So after 4 to 6 hours check , Is the refrigerator cooling properly or is it taking time or temp is dropping once you open close door. If this problems are not noticed, then reset procedure has helped.------- But if same problem is noticed after reset procedure is followed, then you can get the compressor checked.
This should help.
Many times a freezer and/or refrigeratordo not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many otherthings that can go wrong.
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing thencheck out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to starttrouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then callinga repair person to do a simple thing for you...
it has an overload on the compressor that has kicked the compressor out and will not let it start back up,,,let it cool for a bit then try again it will reset it's self,,,,, make sure that both sets of coils on this unit are clean....you see the condensor coils when your on the roof with the cover off... check the inside evaporator coils as well..... let me know what you find out......
To get proper cool, keep the tips as follows: 1. Check air filter is cleaned. 2. Check indoor coil is cleaned. 3. Checkindoor blower motor is working. 4. Keep in cool mode. 5. Set temp minimum 3degrees less than room temp.6.Check compressor is working with correctpressure.
Please specify, if any error code.......... Thanks. Helpful?
Hi, After fixing the fan, you may have to unplug the unit and then let it cool down before the compressor will start again...there is a thermal overload on the compressor that will need to reset.... It is possible though that the compressor got too hot a is ruined or that the start relay and capacitor are fried because of the fan stoppage. Let the unit cool down and them if the compressor will not start then check out these tips. They will give you more info on the compressor situation...
If the compressor comes on, then it is most likely working, unless it makes a loud humming noise. However, if it makes a clicking noise, it could have a bad relay. If the compressor gets too hot, it will shut itself off on overload until it's cool enough to run again, which is usually long enough to defrost your food.
You may have a problem in your sealed system. If this is the case, there may be a refrigerant leak somewhere. If this is the case, you should have a technician come out. Your sealed system should be covered under warranty if your refrigerator is under 5 years old.
Please let me know if you have any other questions about this.
