Why did fridge stop working, then freezer 4 days later?

how it works. 6 month ago another technician came to this service call and found out that system is low on freon. So he charge it up with freon and add leak dye into the system. Leak was really slow, so he could not find at first. Here Im 6 month later, found leak dye with special light (dye leak set (tools) cost about 180$), did not need to order any parts, but replaced copper tube. Customer paid around 600$ for repair total for this repair. Hope That Helps!

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.

So my mini fridge seems to have stopped working it does run i can hear ir and the compressor is gitting fairly hot i have unplugged it over night and replugged it back in this morning and still seems to...

I apologize for being 1 month late in answering your question. I just answered a different post and your question appeared after answering the other post. Having said that here goes.
If the compressor is running reach down and touch the tubing that goes into the compressor. One of them should be very hot and the other one should be much cooler about 2 inches from the compressor. If neither one of the tubes is hot the coolant system it out of coolant probably due to a system leak. (i.e someone poked the coils defrosting the unit or.. there was soldering joint that had a slow leak and allowed the coolant to escape. Make sure to listen for the compressor running continuously vs running every 4 - 6 minutes (thermal overload cycling) If the drier is clogged where the capillary (small tube) connects to it there will be one hot tube at the compressor but no coolant flow.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I can't keep coolant in the bike once it warms up.

The cause is most likely a faulty radiator cap. Replace it if you can. It is not sealing properly, and allowing coolant to escape out the overflow tube. You can try cleaning the cap under running hot water, pressing down on the spring at the same time, to dislodge any dirt or grit.

Motor running but does not get cold

There is a leak in the coolant cycle system or the seals are shot. Replacing the compressor and coolant will fix the problem if there are not micro leaks in the heat exchanger (tubes with grating) but it may be better to just get a new frige, depending on the model. Expensive ones are worth it, cheapies are not. You make the call when the cost of your parts and refilling are discovered. Remember all it takes is a leak one molecule wide, and the new refrigerants are now smaller, they leak through most rubber tubes but won't through metal.

Leak water on floor once a month

This likely a defrost cycle issue. Your drain tube is likely clogged. Get under there and clean it, clean your condenser while you're at it. Cut down door openings, open liquid in the fridge.
