I've just stuck a small hole in side of the freezer, while trying to chip away the ice that had gathered there. Stupid? Me? Chuck it out and buy a new one?

Hiya Jonathan. If it's just the plastic that there's a hole in patch it up with araldite or superior glue. If there's a hole in the tube then that will be no good and you will need to buy a new one. Hope i was of some help to you, kind regards.

No, the fridge will not get cold any more. The coolant goes to the coils in the freezer. The fridge takes a small amount of cold air from the freezer to lower its temperature.

I am sorry to say that unless you can find a way to repair the puncture and refill the system with freon, you are going to have to buy another refrigerator.

OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture:

Hello,

i am wondering if ice is constantly getting stuck or are the cubes smaller that the size of the mold? if that is the case have you tried replacing the water filter. The typically reason ice gets stuck in the mold is because the individual cubes (usually 7 or 8 per mold) are too small,the leading cause of that is not enough water in the mold
Also is water dispensing through the door with good pressure, if no replace filter but first check the pressure of the incoming water from house plumbing

If you've punctured a section that allows the refrigerant gas to escape, the following can happen:
1. If you switched the unit off immediately after, then the puncture can be sealed, and the unit 're-gassed'.
2. If the unit was left to run, there is a real possibility that the compressor could sieze, resulting in repair costs that would exceed replacement costs.

Keyless chuck is stuck open


That can happen if the jaws inside the chuck, usually 3 triangular pieces get jammed together. With chuck facing down tap chuck several times to loosen jaws. If that doesn't work spray a small amount of WD-40 into chuck and try again

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

Lg frost free fridge freezer gr-399sq


on the back wall inside the freezer unscrew the white panel and then remove the panel behind this . you should now see a tray that runs the width of the freezer with a driphole on the left-hand side which will probably be frozen with ice , chip away whatever is possible and then put boiling water on the driphole and once this is clear you should find the problem sorted , 1 other option is to turn the fridge/freezer off for several days and this will allow the ice build-up to thaw thus resolving the problem
