I put a knife puncture in my tru cold refrigerator, freezer combination in the freezer part


Is the freezer/ refirdge still working? If everything is still working, then the puncture did not cause damage to any great extent. Just place a piece of aluminum duct tape of the puncture hole. You can purchase the tape in a hardware store or Home Depot/Lowes, in the plumbing, heating dept. If the refridge is not working, then there is a major repair to be done.

Freezer panel not working


Sounds like someone tried to "defrost" it with a steak knife...

The government employees in the highrise office buildings where I once worked used to do it all the time.

The aluminum evaporator is nearly impossible to repair and the repairmen will tell you it's cheaper to replace it.

How do i defrost the freezer do i smply turn it off??


Yes... the best way is to empty it out and just turn it off leaving the door open...
A hair dryer or heat gun will speed things up but do not use a knife or ice pick...you can puncture the coils and kill the freezer...

Punctured inside bottom of chest freezer, now it wont work. how can it be fixed?


Hi,

Sorry, but you punctures a refrigerant line and the system lost the freon...

To fix this the bottom would need to be cut out of the freezer and then the lines fixed and the system recharged...

Considering the cost of a new freezer... you will be better off to replace the freezer rather then doing that much work to it..

My fridge and freezer are not getting cold enough. What could be the problem


check your compressor, see if its working. If it isnt it may be due to thermostat not making contact or starter relay faulty. if compressor is running though it will be most definitely short of gas. Check for puncture in the freezer section,knife is the worst tool to use for defrosting your freezer.

Punctured freezer wall in dormer fridge


Usually try not to even answer these questions because anything less than a FixYa drops my rating, so maybe don't bother rating, OK?

Yes, it's a goner. Repair would cost more than a new unit.

REPAIR or REPLACE?


OMG ROFL!!!

Well... here's an idea.

Drill a 1/2 inch hole where you punctured the wall of the freezer, make sure you don't hit the coils. Then goto lowes/home depot and get that expansion foam that is used to insulate windows and holes in houses. Grab a razor blade and scalp off the excess after it's dried. Now cover the foam on the inside of the freezer with 2 part epoxy or "shoe goo" or e6000 (these are the toughest glues I have ever used) which is available at a hobby shop. Make sure you do a test with the foam and the glue on cardboard first to make sure the glue won't eat at the foam.

Are you sure you punctured the coil? If you did you can goto an auto part place and ask for a compression fitting (most commonly used to repair brake lines on cars) for what ever tube size the coil is, use a fine ruler is the best. Then you can repair the coil by using a pipe cutter to cut the coil and put it back together with the compression fitting. Now call the appliance service guys and have them come out and recharge the system.

Fixed, total cost... about $50 bucks

Other solution, replace entire fridge, total cost $$$$$
