Magic Chef CTF1920AR Leaking Oil

Just had the compressor replaced in a ''fix-it'' shop - it worked for a couple weeks with no problems. Now, there is a black oil leaking - not sure where it's originating but it's accumulating on the floor next to the right side of the door. I have a feeling the compressor is going out already (probably scabbed from some other fridge that was old - argh!!!).

SOURCE: Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

SOURCE: Fridge leaking oil on the bottom right side

OK, usually if you see an oily substance that you are sure is not from the fridge contents it's oil from the sealed system. When a leak in the sealed system happens the refrigerant gas leaks out and the lubricating oil also leaks out. I'm afraid you may be in this situation. As the refrigerant leaks out the cooling efficientcy drops off quickly and eventually there is no cooling at all. You would have to use a refrigerant leak detector "sniffer" to locate the leak and then have a certified company repair the unit. Sadly, the cost to do a compressor replacement and leak repair is 2/3's or more the cost of a new fridge...

Have magic chef mccf5wbx freezer compressor runs but shuts off in 15 seconds


Check condensor not clogged up, fan working etc. If all ok, try new capacitor and relay. If all else fails, replace freezer (compressor replacement is costly)

I was out of power for a couple hours, everything turned on again but my magic chef refrigerator is not working properly


If your compressor is coming on, then check the main board. If it isn't coming on then it is probably either the start relay or start capacitor which are located at the input of the compressor. If they have power and are good then check the PCB board.

My 3.6 cuft Magic Chef frig quit over a weekend. When I plug it in, the compressor is not running and is getting very warm. Is there any quick/inexpensive fix?


there's a small compressor starter that can be replaced. i had similar problem and it seemed to work. the bad starter could be a result of an underlying compressor problem though. for $40 i took a chance and all seems fine so far. the starter simply plugs in and is found under the electrical cover on the compressor. my pt# was P6R8MC, and the starter was black in color. be sure your unplugged first.

MIni fridge stopped working/cool.


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.
