The freezer is old, but I am a renter so I couldn't say how old. On the back there is a sticker that says “HUAYI B43CB”;

label on back

It has been stopping intermittently for the last week, and in the last two days it has not come on at all. Everything is now room temperature. It dosen’t have a light, but it is certainly plugged in and switched on.

Looking inside I see that one of the pipes in the shelf of the freezer is broken; view of whole freezer enter image description here

Is this why the freezer is not working? Can it be fixed?


That broken pipe has let all the refrigerant escape, so it will no longer work.

Compared to the cost of a new one, the repair will likely be more expensive given the time, tools and materials involved.

  • I'm glad I don't have to attempt a repair, thanks for letting me know.
