It should be repairable. You would need a Heating/ Air Conditioning repair shop to silver solder the hole closed, and possibly sweat on a valve to evacuate and refill the system. I would call around and ask if the shops do this sort of thing. I had a similar repair done on a window air conditioner, and it saved me money!

Why is vacuum condenser light blinking

this is usually a leak in the evap coil,if it's under 12 years old the coil is still under warranty.sub zero is a great machine,the only problem is that the evap coil behind the back wall in the fridge section leaks or a hole develops.the freon leaks out and the fridge section will continue to get warmer,the vacumm coil lite will come on.i've seen this happen to some machines that are 3 years old it need to get a tech in,he'll recover the gas,evacuate it,replace the coil and add new freon in,if it's under warranty it will be 650 to 750,or if not under warranty 11 to 12 hundred dollars to repair.

Unit will not cool to below 40 degrees

Proably has small freon leak and that will cause it not to cool well just like a car that is low on freon.

You might be able to add freon and it may last for awhile but you might want to pay a good service shop for a leak repair.

Usually the leak is a tiny tiny tiny pin hole in the evaporator.
Some times you can repair them but if the unit is over 7or 8 years old replacement is best.

You have a freon leak and the coolant leaked out. Perhaps when you mode it down the stairs one of the coils with the freon in it ruptured a tiny hole.

You need an authorized and certified tech for freon.

I was drilling a hole into the bottom of the pan from the rear for better drainage and I knicked the back coils. all the freon escaped;how can it be fixed inexpensively and can i buy the freon from...

You will have to get freon from a supplier such as Aireco, or R.E. Michaels. In order to buy it, you have to be CFC certified. If you want to fix the hole, you will have to be very careful, and cut the fins away from the hole in the coil. Then you will have to get a torch (map gas, acetelyne, etc) and solder it closed. Do not use plumbers solder, use a high silver content such as a brazing rod. Then after you seal the hole, you can hook an air compressor up to it, and pump about 100 to 150psi in to leak check your repair. If all holds well, you should be able to charge it. You may be able to find some R22 on ebay. I sell it on there sometimes. There are a lot of suppliers. Hope that helps

HELP - I punctured the Evaporator coil - is it junk now?

i will give u an experience
if u can see that tiny puncture then u can fix it.
how? well take a 100 grit sand paper and slowly rough the punctured hole on the side of the hole approx 1 inch around it.clean it with a clean cloth. next take some petroleum ether soak a tissue in ththat and with the ether moist towel wipe the area and the hole nicely .now buy fro the market aluminium epoxy tubes. mix a little bit of the epoxy in a i:1 rratio and apply a coating of this stuff on and around the just cleaned hole.After about 12 hours the puncture is repaired now dont touch it.
Take the fridge to a professional refrigerant filling person who has experience in filling gas. he will vacuum the system and remove any ingress of moisture and then begin filling gas. your fridge will be good as new after this job

Hi. In order to find the leak, technicians use a device to find freon gas leaks throughout the system, I really don't know the price of the device, but it really works. And depending on where they find the leak ( hose, elbows, screws, assemblies, pump, etc.) they repair. It could range from $200-$800 or more on repairs. If you can find the device and buy it, it's really worth it, and you can do it yoourself because it's not difficult at all. Just make sure when you replace everything, Put one can of R134a gas with lube, so you can lubricate the parts, and the rest with normal R134a.
