Magic chef compact fridgerator model mcbr445b1

My compact fridge is no longer cooler. my 2 year old son may have opened it one day and who knows how long it was running for. when i plug it in the compressor heats up but does not run? is it worth repairing/replacing the compressor or should i just buy a new unit.

You may just have a bad relay. with the power removed ..(unpluged)
remove the relay cover ( on the side of the compressor)

remove overload and relay

check relay for 4-5 ohms
check overload (if open it is bad)

let me know

Magic Chef Refrig Model MCBR445B1, the motor/fan/compressor is not running when plugged in.. It is approx. 5 years old. Is it worth repairing?


Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model MCWC44DZ Where can I


On the Magic Chef site you can order parts for the cooler. I took mine out and treid to find them on the web somewhere else and could not locate them anywhere except China and England. I know this isn't true but tried every search option I could think of. They are about $22 plus shipping (HIGH).

Magic Chef Mini-Fridge not Working, Model # MCBR360S


Unplug and look for the thermostat control. Try jumping the thermostat wires together. If it runs then replace the thermostat. Also feel the compressor to see if running, they run very silently. Thanks, Sea Breeze
