Question about Magic Chef MCBR440 Compact Refrigerator
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

Set your Ref/Freezer per the following:
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
You have to wait about 4 hours for everything to stabilize. If you are still having ice forming inside the freeezer then the rubber seal around the door is probably the problem. If they have a split, tear or crack, etc. it will let warm moist house air into the freezer and turn to ice as it cools. If this happens in the refrigerator it'll turn to water and collect in the bottom of the frig. New seals can cost around $60 per door.
If you pack too much food in the unit it may also cause freezing because the air needs to move around in there and food shouldn't block the vents in the back walls of the unit.
Hopefully this helps..
