I punctured the freon line in the freezer, will the refridgerator still work.

I punctured the freon line in the freezer compartment. Are there 2 lines, one for the fridge and 1 for the freezer? Will the refridgerator still get cold. I don't care about the freezer.

We have a dometic refrigerator in our Rv. There is an odor (similar to ammonia) when the freezer compartment is opened. The shelf has staining and blue markings around the fixtures securing it to the...

It sounds like you might have punctured a freon line. But since the cooling lines are on the back and the shelfs are secured from the sides, was something added that could puncture the line? You might want to unplug everything and turn the unit off and then try to feel the coils to see if you can detect a puncture. It is easiest to work on with the unit out but that can be very involved. And repairing a puncture or recharging the unit should be done by trained technicians.

Punctured inside bottom of chest freezer, now it wont work. how can it be fixed?


Sorry, but you punctures a refrigerant line and the system lost the freon...

To fix this the bottom would need to be cut out of the freezer and then the lines fixed and the system recharged...

Considering the cost of a new freezer... you will be better off to replace the freezer rather then doing that much work to it..

Chipping away ice in magic chef freezer section i punctured freon line in freezer panel can refridge still get cold

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.

Sounds like when you defrosted it you used something sharp and punctured the refrigerant line somewhere. Does it run constantly? never gets any cooling? never shuts off? all symptoms of no freon in sealed refrigerant system. I'd be looking for a replacement.

I've punctured a hole in the lining of the freezer compartment of our fridge freezer. There's now a small hole which has been slowly leaking a fluid which smells a bit like antifreeze. The freezer has been...

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.

I punctured a hole in the freezer part will it still work?

UUUUUUUgh....not sure....
if you punctured the part that has the freon zig zagging through it and allowed the freon gas to escape will no longer work and it may cost quite a bit to get it repaired.....but...if you are lucky you may have only punctured the covering and not got into the part with the freon...turn it on and see how lucky you are.

Refrigerator side not cooling

The fresh food section is cooled by the freezer section by forced air supplied by a fan. If you have air flow, check the temp inside the freezer. It should be between 0 and -10. If not look inside your freezer and see if you have ice built up on the back panel. If so you have a defrost problem that is most likely a bad defrost heater, a bad termination thermostat or timer. If ther is no ice then check your fan under the refrig. If you can hear the compressor running it should be turning. If this all checks out then you have a freon system problem like. Low Freon pressure or a restriction.
