Question about Haier Black and Decker 2.7 Cu. Ft. Refurbished Refrigerator
Accidentally put a small puncture hole on the underneath side of the freezer cube
The hole can most likely be fixed with epoxy and a filter drier added to the refrigerator by an experienced refrigerator technician but the problem involved will be the cost to have the repair done. It would be less expensive to replace the refrigerator, Thanks Sea Breeze

It sounds like you have punctured the evaporator coil and it is leaking refridgerant.
That would certainly cause the unit to be low on refridgerant which would cause it to start warming up, and becoming louder. It would also explain the smell.
If the unit is fairly new it *may be worth repairing, You will likely need a new coil.
Expect costs in the 300 to 500 range.
I reccomend getting a secondary place to store the food, and unplugging the unit emediatly if you want to have it repaired.
The reason for that is because the compressor is likely undamaged at this point. but if it runs on empty it will soon fail and then you can double the repair price or more.

That type of damage is usually fatal to the unit. It is difficult if not impossible to repair in most cases depending on the metal used to make the evaporator, and what kind if equipment the repairman has. You can't fix this yourself, consult a local repairman, explain what happened, and the model of the unit, and ask if repairable what it might cost. Or just buy a new one. And NEVER use sharp objects in an effort to remove frost buildup. Turn it off, put your stuff in a cooler, and use a heat source such as a bucket of hot water in the unit with the door closed
