I purchased an Isotherm Compact Classic 2010 to fit in a cold

Customer Question

I purchased an Isotherm Compact Classic 2010 to fit in a cold box in my boat.
When fitting the evaporator, I fractured the flexible pipe attaching the compressor to the evaporator. The fracture is at the bracket holding the pipe to the evaporator. Is it possible to repair the break on the pipe? The capillory pipe inside doesn't appear to be damaged.
I can send a pic if that would be of any help.
I hope you can help.
