SOURCE: SR-172W not cooling

MOST CASES ... THEY ARE NOT LOW ON 134A . TO TELL ... YOU NEED ONLY START THE COMPRESSOR AND HOLD YOUR HAND ON THE SMALLEST COPPER-LINE ... IF IT GETS REAL HOT 110-130 DEGRESS YOU HAVE A CHARGE. IF YOU MOVED THIS FRIG. AT ALL LATELY MAKE SURE YOU LET IT STAND UPRIGHT UNPLUGGED !!! FOR EIGHT HOURS. YOU CAN ALSO SPEED THINGS UP BY: HEATING WITH A BLOWDRIER BOTH THE COLD PLATE INSIDE AND THE BOTTOM OF THE COMPRESSOR ... THIS BOILS ANY REFRIGERANT OUT OF THE OIL AND LETS THE OIL RETURN TO THE COMPRESSORS OIL RESEVOIR THAT IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE COMPRESSOR. THESE SMALL FRIGS ARE GREAT ... BUT FRAGILE TO MOVE AND DEFROST. OIL CAN GET TRAPED IN THE COLD PLATE AND NEDDS TO BE HEATED OUT OF THERE AND SOME UNFORTUNATELY USE METAL OBJECTS TO DE-ICE. A LOW CHARGE WILL NOT FROST THE COLD PLATE (EVAPORATOR)EVENLY AS IT SHOULD. LOW CHARGES (AFTER YOU HAVE DONE THE ABOVE) ... WILL ICE UP IN JUST A SMALL SECTION WERE THE PIPES AND CAP-TUBE GO INTO THE COLD PLATE. THESE DONT LEAK UNLESS SOMEONE TOOK A ICE-PICK OR EQUALLY AS DEVESTATING TOOL TO DEFROPST IT. ONLY WAY TO DEFROST QUICK IS WITH HAIR DRIER ...DO NOT PROP-IT UP IN THERE AND WALK AWAY .. YOU CAN MELT OR WARP INSIDE PLASTIC HOUSING !!!!! THEY ALL NEED MANUAL DEFROSTING THE MINUTE ICE STARTS ACCUMILATING. OR BUY A APPLIANCE GRADE HIGH AMP (10 AMP) PLUG IN TIMMER AND SET TO GO OFF AT 3AM AND COME ON AT 4PM ... ONLY 1 HR. IF THERE IS A VISABLE HOLE IN THE EVAPORATOR COLD PLATE ... IT IS ALUMINUM AND FORGET ABOUT EXOPY KITS TO REPAIR THEY ONLY LAST A YEAR IF THAT. IF YOU CALL TO HAVE IT REPAIRED RIGHT WITH SOLDER ... USUALLY A REPAIR LIKE THAT WILL NOT BE WARRANTIED AND PROBUBLY COST MORE THAN TO BUY A NEW ONE. GOOD LUCK.

Freon valve location on a sr-4433s sanyo compact refrigeraior


There are generally no service valves on refrigerators. Unlike car A/C refrigerators are designed NOT to leak so need no "recharge" If you are leaking freon you must have the leak fixed. A temporary service valve is attached after the repair is complete, charge is brought up to spec and then valve is removed and the tube it was connected to is soldered shut.

Sanyo model SR-4310W Accidently penetrated the plate that freon is distributed. The bottom of the small freezer section. Noticed immediately gas escaping. Attempted to remove panel but the pipe or hose...


You cannot recharge with freon until you get it fixed as it will just leak out again.Your best bet for now is to call an appliance repair center,tell them what happened,and they should be able to give you a ballpark $ amount over the phone.There probably is about a $50 house visit,and repair centers have a minimum parts price markup of 20%.Your refrigerator sounds new enough but if it was made probably pre-1995ish,the freon will be expensive.I said that year because that is the year cars were switched over to the newer freon.If they do not give you a cost estimate with the information you provide,call someone else.Call someone else anyways just to see who may be cheaper.They see all kinds of stuff and should have a good idea of what it will need.Although from your description,I cannot tell if the plate is inside or in the back so when you call,just be as descriptive as possible and I am sure they can be fairly accurate in the estimate. Good luck! Greg
