Hi

Simple answer - it's toast.

Long answer, yes you can repair it. Yes somebody can come out and re-fill the system with the right coolant. You can buy two brand new / not on sale fridges for what that all will cost you.

At least two. I feel your pain. Those little units are pretty much throwaways.

Sorry to say but pretty much all new units are throwaways...not just the little ones.
