Not a themostat. 3 most common causes are defrost problem (frost on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor, or damper.

SOURCE: fridge doesn't get cold enough

you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

We moved our magic chef frig on the deck-plugged it into an outlet with too many thing running. The breaker tripped.Not the frig light comes on but the frig does not work. Is there a reset button? If so,...


There is no reset button.
Firstly turn the fridge off at the wall switch. Wait 5 minutes then switch the power back on. If the fridge still does not start then you have a problem with either the fridge electrical circuit has a fault or the circuit board fuse has blown.

Bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough, freezer is working fine, - Magic Chef -model MCBR1000w


have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

Not cooling


From my earlier post, our compact Magic Chef 'frig was not running at all.  It still looks perfect, so decided to check on the repair.  It turned out to be the "starter switch," I think is what the switch was called.  The repairman said this is a very common problem, so he had the switch we needed in his truck.  It was repaired quickly and is running great.  
Cost was about $140, part plus labor.  A replacement would have been only a few dollars more, but would take more time and effort.  FYI, the compressor on these Magic Chef refrigerators has a 5-yr warranty.
Hope that helps someone. Jaci

MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
