Why don't you believe him?  If you've got a hole in the walls, they often contain refrigerant gas.  If it leaks out...unit is dead.  Did you ask him to repair it?  If he said he could...the problem is repairable.  If not, he clearly didn't want to waste his time.  
Leaks of refrigerant out of a sealed system are generally covered by a 5 year warranty...unless you caused it.

3 1/2 year old fridge not staying cold in freezer or lower part. Food spoiled. Repair man said fridge was dying. Filled it full of feron. Said we had a leak and it could not be saved. It's only 31/2...



If there is no cooling at all , before we go further we must confirm the first step of confirming the compressor and gas pressure. So shut off the fridge and leave it off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.Now since the service man has said there is a leak the problem can also be in the compressor or the sealed system.So it is best to take an estimate for a guranteed repair , if not it is best to scrap and buy a new one. Please check this link for tips to work.

Fridge not cooling, freezer not freezing even on coldest settings


Hi,
From what you are describing, you have a refrigerant leak. The freon has leaked from the system, The compressor will still run and evrything looks fine. To double check you will have to have someone hookup gauges to the system and verify that the charge is lost.
It may be possible to find and repair the leak. This is not always possible as some of the system is virtually inaccessible in many refrigerators.
Make sure if you do have someone repair the system that they evacuate the system very well and do a good vacum test before recharging the system.

This should help you to solve your problem.
Thanks for using Fixya!!

Fridge barely cool freezer not freezing


Get it checked out. It should be good for another 7 years or so. A new fridge will cost $900 to $2000 and the quality of many of the new ones is not so good.

Tempratue problem


air from the freezer fan, means the sensor- temperature control circuit is working right, it is trying to cool
there has likely been a leak from the system and there is not enough coolant left for the compressor to compress anything.

a GOOD repair guy
will have a pressure pump/gauge and test for leaks through the fill nozzle, repair them and regas the fridge (provided it is a non-CFC r12 fridge) without removing it from the home,

a not-so-good repair guy
will not

Fridge not cold


I had the same problem with fridge/freezer and repair man told me NOT to use anything that has been in freezer as what is happening is that it is constantly freezing and defrosting because there is not enough gas in the system to cool the appliance. It is possible to re-gas the appliance but service engineer advised me to claim a new fridge/freezer from company which I did. Please do NOT eat anything from freezer as could make you ill.

Hotpoint ff175b fridge freezer


I had the same problem. Hotpoint told me it was the electronic card, and I waited 3 weeks for them to get one in stock. Just been fitted and made no difference, though the Hotpoint man told me it was fixed. I have just spent half an hour "shaking and whaking" various bits at the back of the fridge freezer and the compressor has finally kicked into life.
Concentrate your shaking and whacking on the black square thing to the left of the compressor.
Going to quit my job and become a freezer repair man.
