Unplug it, and don't turn it on anymore. Doing so can damage the compressor, and I hope it is not damaged already. This will cause the compressor to overheat, and fail. You can buy line tap, and then buy one of those 134 adapter. Check to see if it has freon in there. Refrigarators today uses 134 and anyone can buy it. Locate the low side which is the larger tube coming out of the compressor. Screw in the tap, which should poke a hole on the line. Dont worry a tap do not leak, and I have used them many times.Once in place push the valve if there is any freon in there. if there is none then there is a leak somewhere. Find the leak and repair it first. You can buy a cheap propane torch for about 12-20 bucks, along with flux, and some solder. make sure you clean the copper to be repaired first with a wire brush. Once the leak is repaired, you are now ready to put the 134 refrigerant. An average refrigarator usually take a little more the half a can of 134. Putting too much will not make it cold enough. Well good luck hope this hepls.
