Mary Jane Ragpa, if your only poked through the plastic liner you can patch it with an adhesive or even silicone sealeant. The area needs to be dry to adhere. You don’t want any cold air to contact warm air or you’ll have issues, plus the inside of the walls will start holding moisture from condensation. If you punctured a refrigerant line you’d hear something like air escaping, a hissing sound. That’s not good. It’s an expensive repair if it in a location that is even repairable.

In the future, never, ever use anything to thaw a frosted up freezer. Don’t use a blow dryer, the liner will easily melt. The best way to thaw your refrigerator is to unplug it and open the doors. Place towels around the bottom to catch any water so no one slips. A fan blowingtowards the frozen area will help it thaw faster. Don’t try to rush it. It could take two days, depending on how much ice and the ambient temperature. Be patient.

Very useless reply. Of course it can be fixed.

Where does it say in the answer above that it can't be fixed, unless you meant where they said "....if it in a location that is even repairable."?

If the refrigerant line is damaged where it is encased in the foam insulation that is sprayed between the cabinet wall and the inner lining during manufacture, it would mean damaging the insulation and the walls of the refrigerator to gain access and repair it and then reseal the insulation etc. This is usually regarded as not economically viable by a lot of repairers.

@jayeff Your absolutely correct. I’ve seen a tech attempt to repair a leak in a line under the top door hinge. He was adjusting the door and used the wrong screw to secure the hinge and hit a line. He use a drimel to cut through the top. Hitting more lines. It was a mess. He spent hours trying to fix it before calling the boss.

Happy Thanksgiving jayoff

If you didn't somehow make a hope in the sealed refrigeration system, likely not. A leak in the refrigeration system would have been accompanied by a loud hiss. If you had poked into some of the electrical wiring that was energized, you would had a near instantaneous flash followed by the the circuit breaker / fuse that protects the circuit popping / blowing. You don't report either event, so likely the only damage is cosmetic.
