I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

Compressor dosent kick on


You should check for voltage at the compressor, if there is power than the compressor is siezed or it has bad starting components. You could hit it with a rubber mallet and try to free it. If there is no power at the compressor the thermostat could be stuck from sitting for so long, you could even give that whack or two and see if the comressor kicks on but if it was stuck it should be replaced, but sometimes they will continue to work. if your sure the refigerant (freon) leaked out you shouldn't try to start it because it wont work and you'll destroy the compressor you should weigh your options on getting it repared, some repair guys are rediculous,

Compresser wont start


Buy you one of those starting capacitor and load protection assembly. Available in your local ac supply. They are easy to install and reasonably cheap( about 20 bucks or less). The compressor should start. We use them when installing new compressor of if the compressor wont kick in. They work almost all the time.

Haier aficionado model AES44BPG compressor wont stay on


Hi,

I had the same problem. Mine turned out to be the PTC starter. Checked the compressor coil resistance and it ws fine. Replaced the PTC starter with Item #: 1268268 from Repairclinc.com and it started right up. The PTC starter was an exact replacement.

Hope this helps some else trying to solve this problem. To bad Haier doesn't offer this part!!

Subzero 361rfd fridge compressor wont stay runnig


It sounds like you have either a bad relay or a bad compressor. The fact that you hear the compressor try to start indicates that the control is good and there is voltage to the compressor. I would suspect the strat winding of the compressor but a meter would need to be used to determine is this is true.

Beverage Air UR30GE Won't Get Cold.


If the thermostat has been bypassed it sounds like lack of refrigerant gas in the system. The level cant be checked visually, it will need to be checked by an engineer with pressure gauges.
