Today I had a fridge diagnosed by another company to have a bad compressor. I found the start control out. Replaced and the compressor ran but still not cooling. Put gauge on and the system was empty. Put nitrogen to it and found an evap coil leaking. The defrost heater was right next to the coil causing a leak
The coil is not that much to replace on a 2 yr old fridge but, I was told to also replace the compressor.
Should I replace the compressor or pull a long deep vacuum?
