Sounds like someone tried to "defrost" it with a steak knife...

The government employees in the highrise office buildings where I once worked used to do it all the time.

The aluminum evaporator is nearly impossible to repair and the repairmen will tell you it's cheaper to replace it.

Punctured freezer liner will fridge still work


NO, all the cold for the frig comes from the freezer. No separate cooling coil for the frig. You probably just killed your frig. I've never been able to repair a puncture line and recharge.

I put a knife puncture in my tru cold refrigerator, freezer combination in the freezer part


Is the freezer/ refirdge still working? If everything is still working, then the puncture did not cause damage to any great extent. Just place a piece of aluminum duct tape of the puncture hole. You can purchase the tape in a hardware store or Home Depot/Lowes, in the plumbing, heating dept. If the refridge is not working, then there is a major repair to be done.

If you've punctured a section that allows the refrigerant gas to escape, the following can happen:
1. If you switched the unit off immediately after, then the puncture can be sealed, and the unit 're-gassed'.
2. If the unit was left to run, there is a real possibility that the compressor could sieze, resulting in repair costs that would exceed replacement costs.

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


Hi,

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..

Freezer works fridge does not


Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.

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.

Freezer puncture.  I punctured the liner to the freezer, creating a slight hole that emitted a vapor (presumably freon).  Must I repair it?  How do I repair it?  


The freezer coil where you punctured is made of aluminum and there's not cheap way to fix it , but if the refrigerator is in good conditions you can replace the coil or get somebody to do it ( it is an expensive job).

Punctured gas line/ uses R-12


not very easily. Most freezers have the evaporator and condenser inside the wall of the cabinet and you cannot access them. If the puncture is in the condenser you can put in an exterior condenser however the parts break down for your model does not offer this option (:
