Check for dirt, vacume throughly. Visually inspect fan blade, for anything not normal.

Magic chef 10 cu fridge makes ticking noise but works fine


Some times refrigerators make a noise that sounds like a tick. It could be caused from the refrigerant flowing through the lines. This usually happens when the refrigerator first starts up and goes away after a few minutes. the other possibility is a fan motor blade taping the shroud from time to time. The refrigerant issue is not something that can be fixed. The fan blade issue could be fixed by moving the fan blade back or froward on the shaft a slight amount. If you have a 10 cu ft refrigerator it may not have a fan.

It is making a tic toc noise. It is not refrigerating. The model is : Magic Chef MCBR445W1 Thanks


the noise is from the ptc overload relay located in the lower rear on the compressor,its a safety component that aids in starting the compressor and shuts it down if the compressor overheats,unplug it off the compressor and get an exact replacement and the unit will again cool and stop tick-tocking

My magic chef refridgeator/freezer is no longer


You compressor is clicking trying to start. The insides of the compressor have siezed up meaning that they will not let the motor run and turn them. The motor trying to run and not being able to makes it very hot. Unplug it and let it cool down over night, it may go for a while then, but it is probably terminal. Getting the compressor replaced will cost almost as much as new. Is it possibly under warranty?

Loud buzzing noise on a Magic Chef compact refrigerator help!


Disconnect power from unit. Remove the cover at the bottom, rear. Examine all refrigerant tubing for contact with other tubing or other surface. Carefully adjust the tubing to prevent contact vibration.

If it started cooling your ok. If the compressor got real loud and quit you could be in trouble. The problem comes from the liquid in the system getting on top of the compresser piston. It doesn't always happen when a unit is moved.

Re: Magic Chef


If the compressor is running but the fridge is not cooling, the gas may have leaked out of the system or the compressor is inefficient. The only way to know for sure is to connect a set of gauges to the system. You will need to call in a Refrigeration Mechanic.
