    Give it 24 hours to cool. Where does this "tick"seem to be coming from?

  • angelcat4746

    after 1 hr there was no cooling going on so it has to be hooked up wrong...he watched the video 3 times but says those diagrams look different then our actual layout..ticking from back do you have a diagram or could you walk my husband through the process our time here is 530pm he will be home at 8pm. he is ready to throw the thing out the window and it is only 54 yrs. old:)

    Does the compressor kick on and off? Feel it to see if it is hot.

    OK, the relays are bad on the compressor. They no longer make the relays for the unit but what I use is a three in one relay kit. In my area, everyone uses 3 n 1 devices instead of the OEM relays. One of the biggest appliance repair companies in my area says they prefer using these 3 in 1 devices. The fail rate is almost non-existent. I have used the hard start kits for years in lieu of potential relays and start capacitors with extremely good luck on refrigeration units. I have never seen one fail in all my years of service. The part comes with the instructions and is super easy to install. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/XfNjw9

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: chipping away ice in magic chef freezer section i

No, the fridge will not get cold any more. The coolant goes to the coils in the freezer. The fridge takes a small amount of cold air from the freezer to lower its temperature.

I am sorry to say that unless you can find a way to repair the puncture and refill the system with freon, you are going to have to buy another refrigerator.
