Hello, this is Dave and I'm happy to help you. Anything can be repaired if parts are available but the question that needs to be answered is "Is it worth repairing vs. replacing?" When the compressor runs and there is no cooling an access valve needs to be put on the system to check pressure on the low side of the system. This will determine if the problem is the compressor not pumping or if it is a leak. If it is a leak and it is found quickly where it can be repaired it will cost much less than if the leak is on the cooling coils because they are aluminum and the entire evaporator needs to be replaced. Two questions for you; Did they put a valve on the system? How much are you willing to spend to repair the refrigerator?
