Hello everyone, i got a couple of questions for all of you, My refrigerator went out a few weeks ago, i found a repair man to come look at it, he told me that there was a hole in one of the lines coming from the compressor, he said i would be better off buying a new one or getting a used one, because the cost to fix it would be more than what it is worth, i ask why cant i just solder the copper line and ad freon, he stated that i could but most likely the compressor would end up failing cause it was running with no freon in the lines and all the " muck" would end up getting sucked into the compressor and causing it to fail.
Now my questions are,
!. Was he right and ?.....and if not, can what i suggest work
any help would be appropriated,
thanks..........by the way its a Amana refrigerator, model number ABB2222FEDB, that i bought brand new in 2008
