    Milk sours...can't frreeze ice cubes in the tray that came with! SR-4310

    This is NOT what you want for a handy mid size Fridge/freezer in your small living space...Too bad! It looked to be ideal!

    One thing it does do...Frosts up your little freezer compartment..Weird! because the items inside are not kept frozen :-(

My sanyo SR 4310w fridge won't work after laying it on it's side.

Try standing it upside down for about an hour. Fridges have oil in with the Freon to lubricate the compressor and if laid on it's side the oil can drain through the tubing all into a spot that doesn't lubricate or over fill the compressor depending on which side it is laid on. sometimes the remedy is to reverse the process that caused the condition, specially the compressor having too much oil. it is a slow drain back so give it some time and it usually works.

You need to get a vacuum pump and pump the system down to 29.00 inches of mercury. Then when ready you can allow fresh refrigerant into the system. Pay close attention to the original quantity of refrigerant.

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...

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.

Punctured evaporator on my Sanyo SR-2570 fixable?

Unless you know someone that can replace the evaporator and regas this unit very cheap as it's a major job, I'd say it's alot cheaper to buy a new one. cheers

Re: Sanyo SR4310W mini fridge freezer plate broken

Ok, I know I should not have done this but I did. I was impatient with the defrosting and stabbed my Sanyo SR3770s' evaporator with my Smith and Wesson switch blade knife. A very tiny hole, made a swooshing noise and now the fridge won't get cold. Can this be repaired for a minimal price? Perhaps just replacing the evaporator plate and reinstalling some freon, maybe, hopefully?
Let me know. Basically a brand new unit, hate to see it go to the dump!

Kegorator conversion

Refrigerant lines are normally visible on unit's like this. There should be a condenser coil mounted to the outside back of the unit, or underneath the unit, with the compressor. The condenser coil is the one that get's warm or hot when the unit is running.
As for the evaporator, or cooling coil, it is what get's cold when the unit is running, and is normally mounted along the top or back of the unit. As long as you avoid puncturing any of these two coils, you should have no problem drilling holes. However, if this is a conversion kit, there should be instructions for where to drill the holes. If you just bought a refrigerator with the intent of converting, well, you'll need to look the unit over real well using the directions I've given above. The only other thing to look our for is the suction line and liquid lines leading between the inside and outside of the unit. You should be able to find where the enter into the cold box on the inside, and where the exit the cold box on the outside, near the compressor/condenser coil. Manufacturers normally use the shortest route between the two to save material, so you should not have to worry about anything in the top surface. One way to tell is if that surface heats up when the unit is first turned on from not running.
