The fan on the cooling unit outside is not turning on. It is and has been in the hundreds and the unit does not have any shade, could it just be too hot?

normally this will not affect the fan. it has an electric motor on it that has a breaker usually in the breaker box but sometimes it is in a subpanel. there are several things that can cause this like no power, low on freon, too much freon if you have just had it serviced, etc. with the power to the unit off, take a cloths hanger and put in the unit, being careful not to puncture the sides and see if the fan blades turn. if not then the motor is seized up. for some reason. even if the fan turns, you need a proffesional to take over as working with anything with freon is very dangerous not to mention the electrical components. it takes special equipment to check these. good luck

Chipping away ice in magic chef freezer section i punctured freon line in freezer panel can refridge still get cold

No, the fridge will not get cold any more. The coolant goes to the coils in the freezer. The fridge takes a small amount of cold air from the freezer to lower its temperature.

I am sorry to say that unless you can find a way to repair the puncture and refill the system with freon, you are going to have to buy another refrigerator.

I punctured a hole in the freezer part will it still work?

UUUUUUUgh....not sure....
if you punctured the part that has the freon zig zagging through it and allowed the freon gas to escape will no longer work and it may cost quite a bit to get it repaired.....but...if you are lucky you may have only punctured the covering and not got into the part with the freon...turn it on and see how lucky you are.

Freezer puncture.  I punctured the liner to the freezer, creating a slight hole that emitted a vapor (presumably freon).  Must I repair it?  How do I repair it?  

The freezer coil where you punctured is made of aluminum and there's not cheap way to fix it , but if the refrigerator is in good conditions you can replace the coil or get somebody to do it ( it is an expensive job).

Punctured an air-conditioner Freon line

when the freon is released from the unit,you have to repair the leak,pull a vacumm to rid any moisture in system then refill with freon,if you dont have the equipment,it would be cheaper to just replace the unit

Punctured freezer

You should contact a local welding shop to fix the leak. The tubing is made from aluminum and can be hard to solder for someone who doesn't do it all the time. After that you need an appliance repairman to pit more freon in it. I guess the question old is your freezer? More than 6 years old? Anything older than that, you may just want to get a new one.
