SOURCE: My Sanyo SR-4911m refrigerator does not cool.

it shouldn't be gurgling, has it been laid on its side at some point? anyway,, sounds like it has air in the system,, unplug it and let it stand upright for 24 hours, if the problem still persists,, it may need to be charged, the compressor getting hot is normal , if its very very hot, its because its running constantly trying to cool the unit

I recently moved and my Sanyo Sr-3720 has stopped cooling all together. Neither, the ice compartment nor the fridge portion cools the air at all. I can hear the motor working, but nothing seems to happen....


A refrigerator should be allowed to stand upright for at least 24 hours before operating, after moving. There might be liquid refrigerant (now) in the compressor. These kind of compressors cannot pump liquids, only vapor. I suggest that you warm the compressor with a blow dryer to vaporize any liquid refrigerant that may have migrated to the compressor. Also check for any leak (oil) that may have developed by handling it.

Ge mini fridge seems to be overheating


the unit should have heat coming off the condenser coils on the back. some of the units have a little fan motor to help cool the condenser. make sure there is plenty of space for air flow around the unit, as this is crucial to normal operation.

The mini fridge does not cool. This fridge doesnt use any fans so nothing to check there. The compressor seems to be awfully hot (although I dont know if thats normal) you wont born your hand but it would...


Hi, it's possible,your motor overlay relay has switch off motor, if your days are hot, or if room temp get high, that could happened,unplug ref. let motor cool down for about an hour, if compressor is running, but not cooling, it's possible you got a freon leak, normally ref have a condensate line, that passes through, front of door, that usually get rusted and leak,normally we by-pass it, now if there's a leak, you will have to repair leak first, you will have to change filter drier, vacuum and recharge. no you won't be able to buy freon and tap it up, same princple like vehicle a/c, but, different application, could also be an electrical problem, check motor overload, situated on compressor terminal, remove compressor terminal cover, and you will see overload relay, it's round, has one wire connected to compressor terminal and another connected to wiring harness. also, you can check compressor for short circuit, remove 3 wires from compressor terminal, place one tester lead on copper tubing coming from compressor and next tester lead, place on compressor terminal one by one, if you hear a beep (continuity) from any one of those terminals, compressor windings are faulty, replace compressor, or could just be hot summer months, let it cool down, but remember, remove plug from receptacle. or you are victim of low voltage, low voltages are more frequent in summer months, it could damage compressor winding, or compressor overload relay, let it cool down, and retry it. let me know what happened, before you attempt any repairs. and i can tell you what exactly what the problem are. good luck.

Sanyo sr-1013w not cooling

Not cooling....


Sounds like you checked for the proper items, fans to move cold air, etc. and if stuck in defrost mode. If the compressor is running you would have to be cooling unless... the refrigerant has leaked out. And that is basically a bad thing. If in defrost cycle the compressor would stop while defrosting soooo it's looking like the refrigerant is gone. Can you take the back interior panel off to see if the coils have a full frost pattern?
