Quite often a trouble among the owners of refrigerators is such a problem: you pierced the camera or the evaporator in the refrigerator. This, as a rule, occurs by negligence. Many, to significantly accelerate the process of defrosting the refrigerator, can "help" him with a knife, chipping ice or cleaning off the snow "coat." Also, it is not uncommon for a housewife to urgently get something from the freezer, but the products are so frozen to the walls or the bottom of the chamber that they can not do without a piercing cutting object. So there are holes, punctures, holes. Less often damage can occur for independent reasons - during transportation, etc.

The more dangerous the puncture of the evaporator, and what to do if you pierced the camera of your refrigerator
The evaporator is designed in such a way that if a damage appears in it, then gas (freon, coolant) starts to emerge from it. If the puncture is not seen on time and does not turn off the refrigerator, then this is fraught with serious breakdowns. The point is that water can enter the channel cavity. It is threatened, first of all, by the fact that the refrigerator will not freeze any more.
How to act in a similar situation
If it already happened that you pierced the camera yourself, then your task is not to complicate the problem further, so first you need to turn off the refrigerator and immediately remove all the water from your freezer. If you do not, then you will risk the serviceability of the most expensive part of your refrigerator - the motor-compressor. Repair in this case will not only be more difficult and longer, but also more expensive.
In addition, the masters are not advised to listen to advice from the Internet and from a neighbor, where they propose to fix a hole from a puncture with plasticine, sealants, tape or tape - that will not help. As a temporary measure (a couple of hours) it can also play a good service, while the master is going to see you, but the refrigerator with such "repair" will not last long. Do not try to eliminate the puncture of the evaporator of the refrigerator yourself - this "amateur" will sooner or later remind itself of unpleasant consequences.
