Yes all the freon has left the building. The repair is difficult and probably would not last long.

You punctured the coolant line. It will definitely need to be serviced ASAP. I would advise against using it and it should probably be unplugged (it's not going to work now, anyway...).

What you were looking at was the evaperator. If it was evenly froze up, it had a defrost problem. If it was just an iceball then it had a leak in the system.

It is possible that in defrosting the built up ice on the freezer that you accidentally punctured a coil and that allowed the gas to escape. If you check the area you defrosted you may find a small nick. As the tech said, it should have nothing to do with the prior repair unless he was poking around in that area with something sharp. As for the long running that would not cause it to lose gas.

Fridge wasn't cooling but freezer was working, now both aren't


Hi,Your husband did good job, after cleaning and vacuuming, did freezer (bottom) have excessive ice?, if there's excessive ice in bottom, after cleaning, you have a defrost problem, but if there're no ice in freezer after cleaning, you got freon (gas leak) , there's a condensate loop, that passes through ref. body, from compressor that naturally develop, freon leak after few years, by rusting, normally it can be by- pass. vacuum and refill with freon, if there's no freezing, but compressor running, you'll need a mechanic, you got a freon leak. good luck.

Ice forms on the bottom of the freezer and water leaks on the floor water to the ice maker was turned off and that did not solve the problem.


Assuming that this is a self-defrosting freezer (which almost all are today), the defrosting coil or the timer may be bad. The defrosting coil actually warms up the freezer slightly every X hours. This thaws the ice that starts to form in the freezer. The vapor is then evaporated and exists out through a drip tube to the bottom of the freezer/fridge into a pan. The pan usually has the compressor fan blowing over it to evaporate the contents.
