Sanyo SR3770S Accidentally pierced evaporator coil

Hi Everyone,

I just joined the forum because I have a problem.

I was defrosting a mini-fridge for a friend and I was chipping away at the ice with a screwdriver and mallet. (The entire freezer was a block of ice.) I was being gentle, knowing that I didn’t want to screw up any of the hardware, but the screwdriver slipped and pierced the metal that separates the freezer from the refrigerator. (Since it is a mini-fridge, there’s only one door and then the freezer is partitioned within.) The metal is ribbed and when it pierced, gas shot out, which I am assuming was the refrigerant.

I was originally thinking, oh well, don’t really need the freezer anyways, but there probably are not separate refrigerant holders for each section and if I run it as is, the compressor is going to burn out, right?

So, I’ve been trying to figure out if I can just replace this part, but this refrigerator seems to have been discontinued. Does anyone know where I can find parts?

Thanks,

Jeff

B26FT70SNS Bosch 800 Series Freezing Food

Hello, I have a Bosch 800 Series refrigerator and it has been freezing food. The crisper drawers are the worst culprits, but food will freeze anywhere in the fridge, especially if you put it at the back of the fridge. I spoke to a repair guy a year ago and he mentioned I should tape over the vents at the back of the unit and just leave the two on top open. I have tried this, but it does not seem to help. There appears to be two vents on the bottom of the fridge as well which I have not taped. The compressor seems to be working fine……the unit does not make any unusual noises and it does not run for prolonged periods of time. I have also tried increasing the temp via the digital temp control on the front of the fridge, but it will still freeze things in the drawers and at the back of the fridge. Any thoughts on what could be causing this? The thermostat possibly? I’m sure I will need to get a repair person in, but I would like to have some idea of what the possibilities could be before I am charged to replace 5 things that did not need to be replaced.

Thank you
