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.

Fridge makes a fairly loud popping noise at intermittent intervals...otherwise works fine and maintains wine temp as set....makes this noise approx 10-15 times a day....unable to determine any set pattern...


What you are hearing is the new refrigerant going through the system. The old Freon 12 did not make that noise but the new stuff does. Nothing to worry about, it is normal. Thank you for using Fix ya and I hope you found this info helpful.

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

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.

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.


Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.

Dryer makes squeaking noise ,then dryer shuts off. mdl.#CYG4000AWW


Hello, sounds like the rear drum rollers are in need of replacement which is causing the motor to get hot and cut out on the thermal cut out. It can be tricky to service if you not handy. Good Luck

Fridge is not cooling or freezing


can you tell me the model # on the fridge please? the motor is running continuously because it's trying to cool the fridge. it may be a few things, the defrost thermostat, the fan motor itself or the compressor.

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.
