Question about Sanyo BC-1206 Commercial Beverage Dispenser

Open Question

Kegerator is warm.

The refrigerator is making the normal humming sound from the compressor and is making the gurgling sound inside of the refrigerator. Is this a compressor problem or something simpler?

    My Sanyo BC-1206S is not cooling. I think there was a freon leak. I am looking for a new cooling plate, but do not know where to get the part.

    My Sanyo BC-1206S is not cooling. I think there was a Freon leak. The compressor is hot, fridge not cooling. I think I need a new cooling plate inside (where I think the coil leaked.) Where can I find a replacement plate for this model?

The fridge make weird noises some days. Cooling is good, freezer also works well. My concern is if those noises are prelude to a major damage.


This really depends on the type of noise. If you hear a gurgle type noise while running this is usually normal from the refrigerant pumping through the tubing. Fan type noise blowing air in the freezer section is also normal but if it sounds link the fan is rubbing or grinding you need to look into that noise. Also a similar fan down near the compressor area in the lower back section. A low hum from the compressor while running is normal. If you have and icemaker--water running noise about once per hour for around 10 seconds is all normal while the icemaker is filling. Dropping noise from the cubes falling into the bucket is also normal about once per hour. Hope this helps.

Freezer gurgles


    • Give it mouth wash lol

      Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.


    • Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance

      • f he refrigerator to feel a slight vibration. This is probably the compressor processing the refrigerant, which is a liquid. This flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal. However, a simple way to reduce this noise is to make fewer trips to the fridge. When you open the door, you let hot air in, which means the compressor has to work harder (and gurgle the refrigerant more) to cool things back down.

    • Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.


    • Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment

check that compressor is running. if your hearing a hum and then click you probably have a faulty compressor relay. most times you can pull it off and shake it and you will hear little bits rattle, well it should actually make no sound. but it could still be bad if compressor fails to run. compressor may or may not be warm.

Compressor makes a loud gurgling sound when it shuts off.


The gurgling sound is normal. When the compressor shuts off the refrigerant is still flowing through the system until the pressure equalizes... probably 5-10 minutes
