Punctured freezer I punctured the freezer, which also punctured the tubing causing freon to rapidly leak out. (I broke it). Now the unit does not get cold at all. Is this fixable or even worth fixing, or should I just purchase a new unit? Kellie E

    I have the same issue. It was a gift for my boss last year, so it's practically new. The tubing that is described in the original complaint is thick plastic not metal and I'm having trouble finding where the leak is. How do I find the leak and what is something suitable to wrap or patch it with? How much is it to have the freon filled?

You should contact a local welding shop to fix the leak. The tubing is made from aluminum and can be hard to solder for someone who doesn't do it all the time. After that you need an appliance repairman to pit more freon in it. I guess the question old is your freezer? More than 6 years old? Anything older than that, you may just want to get a new one.

That is the suction line which carries refrigerant (freon) and indicates a sealed system problem which must be attended to by an EPA "Certified" Technician.

I accidently punctured a hole in a cooling tube in a small kenmore fridge freezer and lost all the coolant.. i have since repaired the hole but can't seem to find the fitting on the compressor to recharge...

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 .

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 .

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

Punctured an air-conditioner Freon line

when the freon is released from the unit,you have to repair the leak,pull a vacumm to rid any moisture in system then refill with freon,if you dont have the equipment,it would be cheaper to just replace the unit
