Re: Magic chef- apartment size

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.

My 8 month old magic chef wine cooler model #MCWC45A Serial #0902MCWC45A0720 just went dead. It just got silent, no sound and no interior light. I have tested the outlet and it is ok. i tried connecting to...

If it is 8 months old it probably is under warranty call magic chef they will usually send someone out. Have your purchase stub ready or they can go by the manufacture date but that might be over a year.

I have Model No. MCBR360S Mini Refrigerator- It Quit working - The compressor was pretty warm. I keep hearing a Click.

That clicking sound is the compressor trying to start, if it is less than a year old just call magic chef and they will replace the unit, if not the cost of a sealed system repair may make it not worth reairing

My Magic Chef refrigerator model CTB1722GR is blowing nothing but warm air. Compressor failure???

Good day,
Four possibilities.
1. The condenser cooling fan motor located on the bottom back of the machine between the compressor, and box condenser has failed, and needs replaced. It should be running if the fan in the freezer is running.
2. Loss of refrigerant or a restriction in the system. Testing limited to a qualified tech only.
3. The combo relay overload mounted on the compressor( under a cover) has failed. Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you.
4. Locked compressor. Tech only solution.

PS. If the machine is less than 5 years old, the compressor is under warranty. Contact your selling dealer.

Thank you for using FixYa

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

Refrigerator problem

I have a Magic Chef 3.6 cu. ft. Model#mcbr3605 thats 3 years old and has stopped working. When I plug it in you hear it start then you hear a "click" and it turns off. If you leave it plugged in the compressor gets hot. Can this be fixed or is it trash ? Thanks in advance.

Fridge won't run

hi brenda,

can u hear a humming sound as if it is trying to start then it would stop after a clicking sound?
if it does then it is your compressor trying to start but can not do it.

you could either have a problem in your starting relay of overload protector of the compressor or the compressor itself is the defective part and it needs to be replaced.

i hope i was able to help.

pls rate me

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.
