Question about Sanyo Refrigerators
I have had a Sanyo mini refridgerator for a few years. Model # SR-4912M. It has always worked just fine. I noticed the other day that nothing in the fridge was cold. I thought maybe the door was left open or someone adjusted the settings. So i turned it up to a colder setting however nothing changed. What could be the problem? It appears other than the coldness issue that everything works the same. The light still comes on when the door is open. The only thing that sounds wierd (however i dont know if it always made that sounds) is that it sounds as if i hear water dripping or running slowly but there is no water line connected. Need an answer please!
This sounds to me like your fridge might be in defrost mode. There should be a switch up toward the top of the fridge near the cold setting. It's not always very visible, but feel around for a little round hole. There should be a small, plastic rod sticking out. Push it back in. (If it's out.) If this is the problem, you should hear the compressor turn on and the fridge should start cooling off again. If you still have the owners manual, it'll probably point you to its exact location.
I hope this helps! :)
