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.

Unplug it for several minutes and then plug it back in. It should work fine then. The problem can be caused by a momentary power outage. The compressor will go into a restart loop. More sophisticated units sense the outage and will wait several minutes to restart the compressor.

What could be the problem with my Magic Chef mini fridge model number MCBR465S. It comes on when I plug it in but not cool at all, and the compressor hot, could I trouble shoot and how,freon? Thx


If the compressor is actually running and there is no refrigeration, I would suggest it has a gas leak and that's why it isn't cooling. Depending on what type of refrigerant is in it, it may not be worth repairing as its only a small bar fridge? Check the rating plate to see if its R12 (Older fridges) or R134A . If the unit is less than 5 years old, it may be operating on R32 or R600 (Butane refrigerant gases) If its only a couple of years old, it may still be under Manufacturer warranty. Most fridges carry a 2 year warranty on everything and up to 5 years parts warranty on what is known as the "Sealed system"

the extension cord must be # 12 wire size for better and the gorund should not be removed . ( proper polirty is important . ) do replace the start relay and if you have a ohm meter ck it for open or short to ground before installing the relay .

I have a magic chef wine cooler model mcwc16mcg justs keeping clicking not cold anymore , can this be fixed


A clicking sound every few minutes usually means the compressor is going off on overload when trying to start. This could mean the start parts are bad, or the compressor went bad.
