    Our magic chef wine fridge is one year and two months old (just outside the warranty period) and has the same problem. Has anyone tried to fix this themselves?

I had an E3 on the upper zone. This fix was simple. Unscrew the 2 screws for the middle tray. Pull tray out as far as you can. Check the wires in the back, those are the wires for the fans in the back. The connectors over time corrode, and break off... All I did was connected the 2 wires that had broken off of their connector directly to eachother. E3 went away and the cooler is working as it should now.in

    Fixed with **** connectors, but due to the gauge of the wires I think this may happen again. At that time it would be a good idea to replace the wires in total.

    I had the same thing, I looked at the wires after pulling out the plastic tray and found that there was water on the connectors , and the connectors were corroded, so I connected them without a plug.

Found it: From the manual @ http://mcappliance.com/document/MCWC44DZ.pdf "“E1” on display for upper zone – error of temperature sensor for upper zone. 
“E2” on display for lower zone – error of 
temperature sensor for lower zone. 
“E3” on display for upper zone – error of DC 
electric fan for upper zone. 
“E4” on display for lower zone – error of DC 
electric fan for lower zone. 
If any of above errors happens, please contact 
Customer Service Dept. for further assistance. 
Do not attempt to repair it yourself. "

I agree with infomag2005, I just fix mine, there is another post where they recommend to remove the tray completely, I did that and is not necessary.Simply unscrew the middle tray and slide out as far as you can. Pay attention to the right side there are many of the cables that made the fridge to work, there are push inside the tray, you can pull them out carefully that will give you an extra inch or so to work on the back.Make sure you mark the cables on the back, ( there are two reds and two blacks) before you cut them. Cut them as close as possible to the connectors. Peel and reconnect. Isolate them very well with electrical tape. The humidity in that part of the fridge is what cause the problem in the first place. So the more you isolate them the better.Put everything together and voila works like a charm, now drink a glass of cool wine:)

My 8 month old magic chef wine cooler model #MCWC45A Serial #0902MCWC45A0720 just went dead. It just got silent, no sound and no interior light. I have tested the outlet and it is ok. i tried connecting to...


If it is 8 months old it probably is under warranty call magic chef they will usually send someone out. Have your purchase stub ready or they can go by the manufacture date but that might be over a year.

Good day! TELL MY WINE FRIDGE SAMSUNG RW13 Display errors (E3)


Checked out Samsung website, E3 error fixed by simply unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. If come back again... then is possible that it has a thermal sensor, this could probably just the problem.

Additional details could find in this link: HERE

Good luck.

Error code in the top zone E3


An E-3 error code on your product indicates a problem with the DC fan in the upper zone. Your issue could be with the fan motor, control board or connecting wire harness. A DC motor can not be ohmed out like an AC motor, so if you detrmine the motor is not running, check for DC voltafe at the motor connections. If there is 12 to 24VDC, then you have a bad motor. If no voltage is present, check the output on the board. Before replacing an expensive circuit board, you may want to have a professional service tech come out and diagnose your problem. ***ALWAYS remove electrical power from the product when removing panels to gain access to components, and also when putting the panels back in place.

Magic Chef wine cooler clicking


If I was abetting man - I would suspect that the fan is polarised, and has been wired incorrectly..

Check that there is nothing obvious in the way of the fan blades..
