I have a magic chef freezer MCCF5WBX the power light is on, but the run light is not on and it is not working


Had the same problem for the same unit. In my case, the theromostat was sticking. Mine was still under warranty so I called Magic Chef, who in turn gave me to a local repair person. In order to save him time to travel out for a diagnosis, he asked me to tap on the control to see if the run light comes on. Sure enough the run light came on and cooled the freezer. Try tapping on the unit control to see if it kicks on. My email address is mearlj@aol.com. I'd like to know if it works.

Bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough, freezer is working fine, - Magic Chef -model MCBR1000w


have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

Magic Chef refridgerator with small built in freezer model#MCBR 980W. Defrosting instructions unclear; red button suppose to be pushed in for defrosting the small freezer, How is it suppose to actually...


I just defrosted my cooler and looked at the manual. It says that you should do it when the ice is only a 1/4 inch thick. Then it will do it without any effort. Well of course i waited till it was about 1 1/2 inches thick. The defrost button does help though. i pushed it and waited 3 hours and that loosened up the ice around the box. Then used an ice pick, flat head skrew driver, and a painters 5 in 1 tool. I cleaned the inside of the freezer fairly eaisly and let the rest of the defrost process clean the top and the sides of the box which i couldn't reach.

Our model is MCBR 415S. The top freezer acts as


You most likely have a bad thermostat control or a bad defrost timer.
Locate the defrost timer, probably inside the temp control panel.Defrost cycles should last 30 minutes then resume freezing.
Manually turn the timer control a 1/4 turn and see if it starts.
If so, replace the defrost control.

It could also be a bad temp control.
If the timer adjustment does not start the fridge. Tap the temp control. It may have stuck contacts.

Freezer works great, but the bottom takes for ever to cool


Hello. Your question didn't post right. All it says is "Freezer works great, but the bottom takes for ever..." Can you clarify.

Auto defrost failure fo Majic Chef refriderator model MCBR 1000W


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Refridgerator leaking water


You will have to check the defrost drain in the freezer by removing either the back or bottom of the freezer . Thaw ice if found in freezer and check to see if the drain hole is clear. Do not use anything to chip at the ice. Clear ice by warming it with warm water or possibly a hair dryer.
