Small Household Appliances/Small Mini fridge freezer leak in freon line


Hi, just read a similar problem as mine in one of your past Q and A s
I punctured line in freezer while cleaning ice build up.
I read your answer to part of question asked but not complete answer given.
Can fridge still be used as fridge only without fixing leak. Is there any problem doing this.
Thanks Aidan.

If the line is punctured in the freezer unit it effects the entire system.  There is only one compressor and it cools both frig. section and freezer section.  The freon will bleed out of the entire system and it will not cool at all.  I think your unit is toast.
