Are we talking about the fan near the compressor? It is important to know if the compressor itself is running. If there is a loose connection to the compressor via the start/over load relay (normally attaches directly onto the compressor), or if the start/over load itself is bad the compressor will not run. It will click trying to turn on untill the over load gets hot Check to see if your compressor is really hot. Could be bad start/over load relay or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. The fact your fan is not running could itself be the problem. It is needed to keep the freon, and the compressor cooled.

SOURCE: Magic Chef wine cooler clicking

If I was abetting man - I would suspect that the fan is polarised, and has been wired incorrectly..

Check that there is nothing obvious in the way of the fan blades..

SOURCE: bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough

have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

You may have a Freon leak at the compressor. Running this unit at low pressure will only make it leak that much more. Have a technician check it and refill is there is a fill port available.

Do you see ice buildup on the back of the freezer wall? Is the compressor running and getting hot?

Bottom of fridge not cold


After adjusting the settings switch or dial (usually inside fridge) you wait a couple of hours then see if bottom is colder. Most fridges (older models anyway) have an adjustment procedure. This worked for our Magic Chef purchased about 1994

Hello we have a magic chef refmodelctf1826arq which started to leak water onto the floor from underneath I can not find the reason why leaking ref is cold, and ice maker working.


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

sounds like your refir has an interior circulation fan which is not running. If not the vent to allow cold air to recirculate is closed. Could be the freezer is icing up and defrosting it is helping somewhat.

Magic Chef MCBR445W1 seems like it dosen,t stop


Hello,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.

Check on the cold control if faulty, replace the cold control, not having found any other problem, do check on plastic air deflector at the top rear of the frig had been knocked off. replaced it if faulty. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.
Good luck.......

Magic Chef MCWC30MCG not getting cold?


You need to replace the Ptc unit attached to the compressor. Go to REPAIR CLINIC.COM and order the following part. 1206838 Ptc relay. They also will show you were it is located and how to replace it. Compressor tanks very rarely go bad. It is an $11.00 dollar part

Refrigerator not cooling at all but compressor is running


They'd at least be cool to the touch regardless i think. This seems dead, I had one that would clink alot. Try unplugging it, moving it away from the walla a bit and plugging it in with the freezer all the way to a 0 setting then work it up to full slowly hope this helps!
