Not knowing the nature of the hole..in general it may be soldered to repair? Then the system needs evacuated (special Vacuum pump) to remove air and moisture. Then it would need charged to the proper pressure. Leave this job to a professional with the proper equipment and knowledge. It might be worth exploring the cost of a working used replacement unit, verses the repair?

Repairing a leak on any refrigerator will require additional skills and tools that most people do not have. I am skilled in refrigeration but the first few refrigerators that were repaired and recharged took much longer because of my inexperience. Refrigerators require long vacuums, new filter driers and a precise amount of Freon to recharge them.

If the bottom rung of the evap coil is the only part frosted, or frozen and no other parts of the evap coil contain frost, you are most likely low or out of freon. An experienced repair company should be called out to verify this. If the freon is actually low, recharging the unit is not a plausible option because there is a leak. A repair or replacement of the fridge is needed. Pleazer Appliance...

Need freon recharge. punctures freezer coil in


You punctured the aluminum evaporator . In the many years I've been in refrigeration , I have yet to find any way to patch a hole in the evaporator . I've used epoxy , solder , and all different advertised ways to try to patch aluminum . Nothing worked ( for long anyway ) . My suggestion would be to buy another refrig . You will be wasting time and money trying to " fix " this problem . To repair it yourself , you have to have a license to buy R12 , maybe you can buy R134A without a license , you have to look on the " modell , serial number tak to see which it uses and how much to use . Also , the system has to evacuated ( all air removed from the lines ) . Do you have a vacuum pump ? You have to buy a solder on connector ( or saddle valve which WILL leak eventually unless you get a solder on valve ) which will connect to the larger tubing on the compressor or use the access line already on the compressor but is pinched off . Do you have guages for the refrigerant type you need to use ? Once you have these things , reply back and myself or someone else will help you procede .

Kenmore upright frost free freezer compressor will not come on...


mlee62599,


You have a freon leak and the coolant leaked out. Perhaps when you mode it down the stairs one of the coils with the freon in it ruptured a tiny hole.

You need an authorized and certified tech for freon.

It sounds like a Freon leak. The compressor is running and it gets a little cold. THis is not something you can fix yourself. You have to have certification to buy freon and gauges and know exactly how to use them. Besides in most cases you can't find the leak and will have to keep recharging it.
