Physically it can be done but you won't like the quote you get to have the coolant replaced.

Being an ex-hvac tech, I'd say it's fixable.

Considering you said it's a mini fridge, junk it and buy a new one.

Or use it as a fermentation chamber somehow.

+1 for you could fix it, but by the time you do it may be cheaper to go pick up a used one at a pawn shop, or even a new one at wally world....
