Not cooling.... Ok, my Sanyo 4911M is not cooling. The compressor is running, the light comes on when you open the door. I cannot find any fans on this model, either on the coils or compressor. I also have not been able to find a defrost switch or anything like that either. Any ideas?? Thanks.

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?
