SOURCE: MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

SOURCE: I have 'Magic Chef' 10.0 cu. ft. Refrigerator.

Hi,
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Magic Chef RB15FA0AA Refrigerator I have this refrigerator and it still works fine. I would like to know it's total cu ft capacity. Also what the refrigerator and freezer each cu ft capacity is.


After some work online...I found this advertisement buried among a bunch of other ads:
Magic Chef RB15-1A: Top-freezer style with 14.6 cubic ft. capacity and optional ice maker -- $439.

So, as I suspected the "15" in the model number is the cubic feet (total I would say). The 14.5 is probably actual, with the unit "rated" as a 15 CF.

Naturally, to find the cu. ft of the freezer, measure in inches then multiply the width X height X depth and divide that resulting rather large number by 1728 to get your cubic feet of the freezer.

You could also do the same with the refrigerated section, and add the results together and they should be near 14.5 total.

What is the Cu. Ft. of my Magic Chef Refrigerator Model # RB193AV? Previously put Model # in Select a specific product, 1st time on fixya


Hi Jim,

Because this is an older model and the CU feet many not reflect the size you can now fit with newer models (better insulation, etc.), I'd suggest going by the dimensions of the opening and allowing for the manufacturer's recommended clearances.

Not cooling


From my earlier post, our compact Magic Chef 'frig was not running at all.  It still looks perfect, so decided to check on the repair.  It turned out to be the "starter switch," I think is what the switch was called.  The repairman said this is a very common problem, so he had the switch we needed in his truck.  It was repaired quickly and is running great.  
Cost was about $140, part plus labor.  A replacement would have been only a few dollars more, but would take more time and effort.  FYI, the compressor on these Magic Chef refrigerators has a 5-yr warranty.
Hope that helps someone. Jaci
