SOURCE: Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it

This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.

Have a magic chef refrig model mcbr1010w it is not cooling i have not heard it running there is electric to the appliance light is on inside but nothing else is running

in the bottom back of the fridge, there is a black box (3"x3") with a little white plastic screw type thing in the center. turn it slightly to see if the fridge starts up. Mine is doing the same thing, making it untrustworthy as it shuts off at will. I am currently looking for the replacement part.

Magic chef mcbr1010w, fridge not getting cold. freezer is not defrosting ice blocking hole down to fridge. love the fridge dont want to get rid of it. but im having to defrost freezer by hand every...

do a total, 24hour,defrost,with the doors open,(loads of towels)this should melt all the ice you cant see/get at.DO NOT use hairdryers/scrappers as they only do the surface ice.Wash out/spray all vents/drains with clorine bleach.(clorine is a gas and the smell will not permeate food if left to vent naturally) then switch onto fast freeze,check door seals are tight all round(hot cloth will help mould them).hope all works well for you/please leave feedback.ta!
