Customer Question

I just poked a small hole inside the fridge (on the right side close to the bottom) with a knife while trying to break ice. Is it possible to save it?

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - it is but you would need to contact a specialist refrigeration engineer who would do it for you. Most would just tell you to scrap it. Its a little outside the scope of a domestic appliance refrigeration engineer and whether a commercial engineer would take the risk. If you were on my patch I would have a go at the repair but I've been doing it for 30 years - way back then we repaired rather than replaced.
