You will need to purchase a new unit.The problem when moisture and oxygen enters the sealed system, it breaks down the refrigerant into hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids, which then in turn damage the mechanical components. You have a major problem, and I'll save you a house call charge by telling you that the entire sealed system has to be replaced. If you only have the system evacuated and dehydrated, then recharge the system, which even if its done properly and legally, by an EPA Certified Type I Technician, in other words, not recommended for a DIYer, due to the process required, would still be a major repair, and would not last as long as it should due to the acid damage.

SOURCE: Is there a replacement part for the freezer

The evaporator can be replaced and a damaged line can be repaired. It's not cheap as a qualified tech will have to recharge the system besides the repair. With the proper model number you can look up parts here. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?psid=26129238&sid=PSx20071217x00001a Model number help here. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx

SOURCE: my magic chef refridgeator/freezer is no longer

You compressor is clicking trying to start. The insides of the compressor have siezed up meaning that they will not let the motor run and turn them. The motor trying to run and not being able to makes it very hot. Unplug it and let it cool down over night, it may go for a while then, but it is probably terminal. Getting the compressor replaced will cost almost as much as new. Is it possibly under warranty?

SOURCE: how do i get scratches out of my stainless steel

Try a 3M scotch brite 7447 pad you get at auto parts stores etc. go with the grain of course. If that wasn't aggressive enough go to 180 grit sand paper with the grain. When scratch is removed use DeBruce Polish for daily cleaning of all your stainless steel, perfect in the kitchen. DeBruce Polish is non-toxic and odorless. Also use DeBruce Polish on CERAMIC COOK TOPS, glass polished marble and granite. We get Debruce polish at debrucepolish.com.

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.

HOW CHARGE GAS TO REFRIGERATOR?


First you have to leak test it

If you have lost refrigerant, may as well
buy a new one

ALL refrigerant work has to be done
by trained people

NO Refrigerant products come with provision
to attach hose gauge assy

You have to add clamp on or solder on line taps

Not worth doing & if it has R22 it has been band
