Has this happened suddenly? Look at the shelves to see if there is a frost line. If the shelves that also carry the Freon appear to have a frost line your freezer may have a Freon leak. If there is a Freon leak it will be better to begin looking for a replacement freezer. Let me know what you see, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: I have a magic chef freezer MCCF5WBX the power

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.

Magic chef freezer model mcuf88w won't freeze


When you thawed it, did you remove ice from it using a metal object. That may have damaged the coils when would allow freon to leak out. This is too coincidental to be a problem itself with the compressor. The t'stat might be the problem. Try turning it off at the t'stat for a few minutes, then turn back on to the normal setting. Keep door closed for 30 minutes and check the inside and see if the walls are freezing. If not, you may have a compressor problem, or t'stat, or relay switch problem.

Upright freezer stopped working


That clicking sound is your compressor tightening up(clixon switching on and off.). Pull the freezer out and feel the compressor. If very hot and not running, there is your problem.
