Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators
Our model is MCBR 415S. The top freezer acts as if it is going through the defrost mode and the ice melts. The inside temp of the fridge registers 46 degrees on a thermometer. After about 3-4 hours, the freezer begins to freeze again. This has happened more than once. Please help. The unit is in a small room in a corner with a shelf above it. The fridge is full. Thanks in advance for your help.
You most likely have a bad thermostat control or a bad defrost timer.
Locate the defrost timer, probably inside the temp control panel.Defrost cycles should last 30 minutes then resume freezing.
Manually turn the timer control a 1/4 turn and see if it starts.
If so, replace the defrost control.
It could also be a bad temp control.
If the timer adjustment does not start the fridge. Tap the temp control. It may have stuck contacts.
