I'd like to ask if the ~てしまう in the next sentences has this meaning 6 ㋐その動作・行為が完了する、すっかりその状態になる意を表す。(しまう【仕舞う/終う/了う】の意味 - goo国語辞書)

a) あさぎ:クーラーよ クーラー。夏でもすずしくしてしまう機械よ。(Asagi was showing to Yotsuba the AC unit)
6㋐ seems to be the only possible meaning but it still seemed a little strange to me. Does "すずしくしてしまう" mean "to completely cool"?

b) (忘却:)すっかり忘れてしまうこと。忘れ去ること。 (ぼうきゃく【忘却】の意味 - goo国語辞書)
I'm not entirely sure that this すっかり忘れてしまう is "to completely forget". The 6㋑ meaning ("to completely forget accidentally") also seems to fit.

c) (去る:)ある場所から離れる。そこを離れてどこかへ行ってしまう。(さる【去る】の意味 - goo国語辞書)
As with the sentence from #a), the meaning seems strange. Does どこかへ行ってしまう mean "to go somewhere permanently (without coming back)"?
