I had the same problem. I fixed the problem by replacing the main cooling fan that is mounted over the electrothermal cooling unit.. Fan can be ordered from RepairClinic.com.

Can you look at he back of the unit and see if the clicking sound is coming from the compressor. round black tank at the back. is it very hot? ( be careful )

if it is, then you can unplug the unit for 5 hours to cool off the compressor and then re-plug it and observe.

if it is the same, the compressor is not running.
it could be stuck or the starting relay is defective.


keep me posted

tnx 4 using fixya,

You may have a Freon leak at the compressor. Running this unit at low pressure will only make it leak that much more. Have a technician check it and refill is there is a fill port available.

Power Consumption - Magic Chef Wine Cooler


The unit will draw between 6 and 12 amps on start up and running it should use less than 1.6 amps. The start up amps will increase with age. Funny how that works the same for people as it does for machines. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate. Mike

Replace PTC Starter and that is it. You can also try to open and clean contacts, I did and it worked.
