Have magic chef fridge w top freezer. Model number ctf2124ar. Ice build up in freezer near vents where fan blows air. Keeps coming back after I remove it. Anybody know what,s going on w it?


Ice build up in the freezer is usually caused by one of these problems. You may have an outside air leak from one of the door gaskets. Check the gaskets for proper seal and any cuts or pieces missing. Second possible problem may be your refrigerator is not self defrosting as it should. Cause of this could be a burned out defrost heater. With a bad defrost system, you normally will start to have your fresh food temps start to increase over time( about a week) and some food spoilage.

You could have the lack of air flow or a door seal problem. Could you check the freezer for me, look for frost on the back wall. If not frost, is the fan running in the freezer?

Hi my lower part nolonger gets cold enough to keep fresh foods yet the freezer is working well


Set dials to middle setttings, if the colder /warmer dial is peffed max cold its max cold freezer!!! so move to warmer and the freezer will give more airflow to the reefer , the reefer is reliant upon the freezer for its cold air.

My Magic Chef mini fridge temperature trouble


That can be very difficult to do with a mini refrigerator. There is just not enough separation between the freezer and the refrigerator.

You will likely just have to find a compromise setting and accept the results.
