My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.
I unplug the fridge, wait 24 hours, then plug it back in. Display reads 60, target temp is set to 35. I hear it turn on, and while it is cooling down, I hear occasional popping. When it reaches target temp, I hear it stop. But then the temp climbs back up to 60 , and won't come back down to target temp.
Re: My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it...
Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.
Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

You may need to replace the thermostat. Sound like it works until the low temp setting is reached and then can't maintain that temperature. Given that it will turn the machine on when the refrigerated compartment is warm this implies that the thermostat works until it breaks the connection when the low temperature target is reached.
You should never lay a fridge on it's side. But if it is un-avoidable then you should wait 24 hours before you plug it back in to make sure all the oil makes it's way back into the compressor. Try leaving it unplugged for 24 hours and then plug it back in and see if it starts cooling. If the oil makes it's way into the lines compressor damage could have happened when you plugged it in but also that oil in the lines will cause the fridge to not cool. The oil will not make it back down into the compressor if it is running. Hope that helps.
it sounds like the refrigerator evap is frozen up causing the compartment to get too hot. shut the unit off and let it thaw out. then take the screws out of the cover to check the stryrofoam on the back side of the cover to see if theres broken spots on it causing the air to bypass the evap causing it to freeze. Theres two screws behind the light cover and two at the very bottom of the cover and two behind the decorative plugs about 1/2 way
When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower
the the set temperature
for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree.
some times those friges fail to calibrate them self
tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds
and replug it
then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours
If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.
If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's possible to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down a few more degrees.
Long version: If you open the door to the fridge, on the right wall near the bottom is a small plastic grate. You should be able to pull this straight out from the side wall. There is a temperature sensor attached to the back of the grate. Unplug the sensor. (The fridge will then give you a very annoying error beep and display "EE" on the readout. Pushing the °F-°C button stopped the beeping.) This sensor will change resistance with temperature. (The lower the temperature, the higher the resistance) I was reading a resistance of about 3700 ohms at 43°F and 2460 ohms at 68°F. Throw in a rough assumption that the response is linear and it works out to almost 50ohms/degree. In order to 'trick' the fridge into cooling down more, you need to drop the resistance. I was aiming for about 6 degrees cooler. Assuming the resistance response was linear, 6 degrees cooler would give me about 4000 ohms from the sensor. By jumpering a 50000 ohm resistor (yes, 50K ohm) in parallel with the sensor, I should get about 6 degrees cooler. I did the soldering, plugged the sensor back in, and ended up about 8 degrees cooler. Two days so far, everything appears good and the beer is cold.
Short version: Put a 50K ohm resistor in parallel with the temperature sensor behind the grate on the inside right hand wall.
The temperature read out will be inaccurate forever after though. But then, I just want cold beer, my wife wants cold water, and the kids want to play with the cool blue light. I don't care what the number on the readout is.
Hi. I have the same problem. As a temporary measure, I've bought a wall timer that I've set to turn off the fridge every 3 hours for a few minutes. At least I don't have to constantly pull it out from the wall. Good luck. I'm still looking for a permanent solution !
This unit, I believe is a piezo electric cooling/warming unit. It's possible that after or during your defrost, the control board was exposed to excess moisture... whether by condensation (sweating), evaporation or direct contact with the melted water. In this case, if you plugged the unit in before allowing sufficient dry time, it would have shorted your control board. Possibly allow the unit to dry (unplugged) for 24-48 hours and retry. If the same symptom occurs, replace the control board.
