Freezer compartment on Sanyo SR-3660S

While scraping the ice build up off the freezer tray I opunctured the raised metal through which the freon (?) flowed. Air now rushes out. Is there any way to plug the gash?

Nope. That's about $800 bucks in damage that only a licensed professional CFC tech could "possibly" repair with very specialized equipment. I'm afraid that was a fatal blow to your refrigerator.

That's the refrigerant coming out. Major fix. I am not a ref tech, so I do not know if there is a guaranteed welding technique to do an effective weld on those refrigerator coils.

The freezer door is missing

Look for a gasket for the freezer on the main door of the unit. This model may not have a separate freezer door. If there are hinge pins for a freezer door and this is new, contact whoever sold it to you and report the damage. Otherwise try Amazon, eBay or Samsung to buy the missing part.

My frigde is working but does not get cold

On something like this what I recommend first is to remove the rear panel inside the freezer so we can inspect the evaporator. If the evaporator is iced up the unit will not cool properly & is a sign of a defrost cycle failure.

I was chipping off ice in the freezer compartment and my screw driver made a small hole and there was a hissing sound as the freon escaped.

by the time you have bought/fitted new pipework to this unit you could buy a new one.(pipes are too thin to replace and "loy"(alloy putty)only works for a few weeks.tried time use an antifreeze spray.....

Have a 17 year old Kelvinator N640T side by side no frost fridge freezer. Runs well except ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer compartment and when it builds up too much some melts spilling water...

You problem lies in a blocked drain or a broken drain connection to the metal drip tray at the bottom of the freezer heat exchanger. You could try blowing the drain out from beneath the fridge, which is difficult as it is very hard to access. Alternatively you will need to remove the tray. This means you have to remove the contents of the freezer, remove the lower long white metal cover and blow out the drain. Then test the drain with a cup of water. If it leaks into the bottom of the freezer compartment you will have to remove the drain and epoxy the joint together again.
Not a job for the faint hearted!

Sanyo sr-3620w Poked sensor under freezer tray...hissing sound

More than likely you let the refrigerant out. Is there an oily residue? If so you definitely punctured the evaporator. It's time consuming and expensive to properly repair a standard refrigerator sealed system and maintain the chemical stabilty that will prevent future problems. But with those tiny units priced as they are, it's always cheaper to replace them.
