Question about Refrigerators
To answer your questions...
Yes, the panel can be removed, but it will take special tools to do it...
It can be replaced and the system can be vacuumed and recharged...
Check with a local appliance reapir company for sure but my guess off hand would be somewhere in the neighborhood of a 1000 bucks to replace and recharge that unit...
So that should give you an idea as to whether you want to go ahead with the repair or to buy new...

You cannot recharge with freon until you get it fixed as it will just leak out again.Your best bet for now is to call an appliance repair center,tell them what happened,and they should be able to give you a ballpark $ amount over the phone.There probably is about a $50 house visit,and repair centers have a minimum parts price markup of 20%.Your refrigerator sounds new enough but if it was made probably pre-1995ish,the freon will be expensive.I said that year because that is the year cars were switched over to the newer freon.If they do not give you a cost estimate with the information you provide,call someone else.Call someone else anyways just to see who may be cheaper.They see all kinds of stuff and should have a good idea of what it will need.Although from your description,I cannot tell if the plate is inside or in the back so when you call,just be as descriptive as possible and I am sure they can be fairly accurate in the estimate. Good luck! Greg

The manual reset procedure is as follows : ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take approx 4 to 6 hours for your refrigerator to regain its regular cooling/ freezing .So after 4 to 6 hours check , Is the refrigerator cooling properly or is it taking time or temp is dropping once you open close door. If this problems are not noticed, then reset procedure has helped.------- But if same problem is noticed after reset procedure is followed, then you can get the compressor checked. -------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.
