    My unit is 9 mos old and is doing the same thing as described above. The unit has power because when I open the door and the light comes on. However, the compressor is not running and the freezer compartment is not getting cold enough to keep food frozen. Bothe refrigerator and freezer are set to maximum.

The unit is sealed most tecks will not recharge to small to deal with. Most common cause for this is low freon. If someone has a clamp on amp meter the wire leading to the compressor will probibly show very low amps. showing a free flow compressor. Cheaper to replace.

HH error code? on magic chef mcbc580dbt

I, too, have just seen (late June 2013) the "HH" code on my Magic Chef wine cooler (and it is running too cold and I can't reset the temperature). Have you found a solution since your posting of about 1 year ago?

My 8 months magic chef wine cooler model #MCWC45A Serial # 0902mcwc45a09720 just went dead. NO sound, no interior light. just silent and dark. its is an under cabinet and i do not move it. i have tested...

Warranty: all models carry 1 year warranty on parts and labor and 5 years on the compressor.

if your unit is under the warranty I would not suggest you try to fix this yourself and instead call the manufacturer and seeing how you have had it for only 8 months and if you did take the unit apart then it would void your warranty I think it would just be better for you to call the manufacturer you can also see the pros and cons of the unit on this site as well if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future. Thanks Rick
p.s if you bought this unit at home depot return it there Thanks again

My mini fridge will not work. compressor is hot. thanks

The first thing that I would look for is a defective start relay and start capacitor. If you are ready let me know and have a ohm meter and we can do some test. Sea Breeze.

Magic Chef Mini-Fridge not Working, Model # MCBR360S

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

New magic chief freezer/fridge, and reset for compressor keeps tripping. Lights on but nobodys home. It's the small 10 c/ft model.

Sounds like the compressor has gone bad. The reset you are speaking of is and overload protector. If it is still with-in the warranty, contact the dealer from which it was purchased to have it serviced. If it is out of warranty consider it may be time for a new one.
