Question about Haier HTE21WAAWW Top Freezer Refrigerator
I poked a hole in freezer during defrosting.
is it dangerous?
The refrigerant used since ~ 10 years is no more dangerous than the one previously used and it is even doubtful that the newer stuff is any better for the ozone layer.
The original coolant could be inhaled without injury as long as one didnt suffocate from a lack of oxygen.
The repair may not be cheap since it will entail the removal and replacement of the damaged coil.
This will require some specialized welding to install.
Using a normal table-top or floor-standing fan to circulate ambient air through the refrigerator with the door(s) open is a safe and fast method for defrosting units that do not automatically defrost.
Just make sure you have some absorbant material in the bottom to avoid water running out of the unit.
Poking the coils with sharp objects can result in the problem you now have or fracture hidden joints that will allow the gas to escape.
