Question about Magic Chef MCBR440 Compact Refrigerator
Our fridge also does not work. Troubleshot deep and found that the bellows in the thremostat cooling tube does not expand enough to click the switch on to activate it. It works if I hotwire the two terminals together, but that would just make it run constantly. Can't find any parts place to get a new thermostat.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Unplug and look for the thermostat control. Try jumping the thermostat wires together. If it runs then replace the thermostat. Also feel the compressor to see if running, they run very silently. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I got mine in 2005. It stopped working 4 or 5 weeks ago. It made a clicking noise and the compressor was very hot. Compressor is under warranty but appliance repair shop wanted $125 to install it and another $75 to charge it with freon. I saw a posting somewhere else that said it was a relay switch. I ordered one from RepairClinic.com for $24.00 incl. shipping, put it in and it's working now. There's a black plastic housing on the left side of the compressor. Just unscrew that, pop the cover off (that was a little tricky) and plug in the new part. Maybe I'll get another 3 years out of it.

You have either a bad capacitor or a bad compressor. If I were there I would put a part on called a 3 in 1. It's made by Supco. It replaces your relay Overload and start capacitor. If the compressor is good, it will fix your problem. Click on this site and you will see the part I'm talking about. It's very simple to put on. http://www.appliancepartsonline.net/index.php?target=categories&category_id=50 The part number is RCO410
Please rate this solution and good luck!

Testimonial: "Very helpful. I'll try it."
To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant.
I suggest you to contact the service authority.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
