    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 :-(

Fridge is Sanyo model SR-4310. There is now a hole in one of the pipes from the compressor, (it's a long story, but, needless to say, the refrigerant is long gone and the fridge doesn't cool anymore). I've...

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.

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.
