Had LG service company come and try to fix my fridge. They advised compressor working fine. Problem was coolant leak, they could not locate where it was leaking indicated leak behind insulation and could not be fixed. Does that mean my 5 yr old fridge is dead, is it not possible to repair or just too expensive ?

So I guess they determined there was a leak by connecting a set of refrigeration gauges to the system. Did they add any refrigerant to find the leak? I don't understand "they could not find the leak" yet indicated it was behind some insulation. Did they show you where??
