SOURCE: freezer puncture
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).

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 .

if you punctured the part that has the freon zig zagging through it and allowed the freon gas to escape then...nope...it 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.
