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).

SOURCE: 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 .

SOURCE: i punctured a hole in the freezer part will it

UUUUUUUgh....not sure....
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.

Why not just use some JB Weld on the aluminum?

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.

Is it possible to repair a small puncture in the freon line inside a small fridge


The hole can most likely be fixed with epoxy and a filter drier added to the refrigerator by an experienced refrigerator technician but the problem involved will be the cost to have the repair done. It would be less expensive to replace the refrigerator, Thanks Sea Breeze

If you punctured the aluminum tubing or the freezer aluminum evaporator , it cannot be repaired . If the puncture is in the copper tubing , only silver solder will fix . On the compressor , you will see a short piece of tubing , capped off . This is where the access fitting was . A good technician will ALWAYS remove the access valve , due to possible refrigerant leak . After removing the end of the tube , silver solder another valve into the tubing . Evacuate the system , recharge with correct amount of refrigerant , crimp the tubing at the access valve and remove the access valve . Re-solder the end of the short tubing , and it's done .

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.

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?

I HAVE A HOLE IN THE REFRIG.LINE OF A HAIER MO.HC125FVS


Hi, unfortunate, sorry to hear that, but it could be repaired, you should immediately dried up water/ice around punctured area, prevent water/ moisture entering punctured area (evaporator. lines), it's one of the worst thing, that could happened to any refrigeration system, it will be costly to repaired, if water get into your evaporator lines, compressor oil have to be replaced, evaporator will need to be flush out, repair puncture, change filter drier, it's better to replace compressor, vacuum system for about 2hrs. then recharge. it's better to use welding/ soldering, to repair punctured line, epoxy repair kit can be used to repair punctured (evaporator) lines . you will have to call a mechanic, if very little water entered punctured( evaporator) lines, then flushing of evaporator, (internal cleaning of lines (tube) changing of filter drier, with overnight vacuuming will do the job. take note, job like this, cannot be guaranteed. check cost for repairs, sometimes it's better to purchase a new one, and save yourself some headaches.next time never use sharp instruments in your freezer, it happened to me sometimes, it's what you get your hands on, what's available at the moment, good luck.

Re: Sanyo SR4310W mini fridge freezer plate broken


Ok, I know I should not have done this but I did. I was impatient with the defrosting and stabbed my Sanyo SR3770s' evaporator with my Smith and Wesson switch blade knife. A very tiny hole, made a swooshing noise and now the fridge won't get cold. Can this be repaired for a minimal price? Perhaps just replacing the evaporator plate and reinstalling some freon, maybe, hopefully?
Let me know. Basically a brand new unit, hate to see it go to the dump!

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 (:

I punctured the freon channel in the freezer compartment of my Chefmate bc 87/h mini refrigerator and I can't find parts anywhere. Help!!!


you have to bring it for repair.
the repair that they would do if they know how to is to weld the puncture hole by aluminum brazing , they may want to check the oil in the compressor in order to be sure that no water have been sucked by the compressor from the hole in the evaporator.

evacuate the system and charge it with the right amount of the correct refrigerant.

tnx 4 using fixya,
