Question about Sub-Zero 632 / S
In refer. repair we usually us silver solder as there is a tremendous amount of pressure that builds up in your sealed system. You would use the same size copper tubing, 3/16", and flare the ends to repair. If you have experience and can get ahold of some silver solder that would be okay. (Silver solder is not the color but the type of solder to use.)

It's a bit more complicated than you may think. It's not good to braise a hole you need to take a 6 inch piece and splice it into the area of the hole. As for recharging if you have never done it don't attempt it. Since there was a hole you may have gotten contaminants into the line and contaminated or burnt the system. For one thing you need to be certified as it is against the law to open up a system and discharge it into the air. The old freon is poisoness to small animals and if you don't have the right equipment you can't do it anyhow. Also depending on how old the system it may take R12 or R134. It's not just a matter of pouring new freon into the system. It has to be evacuated and the old freon captured then it has to be measured then with the right equipment pushed back into the system. Like I said if you have never done it don't even try it you could make things worse.
