Try setting it to the lowest temperature. Listen for a click when you do this, Be sure you have power and the lights come on inside.

SOURCE: Refrigerator compressor motor will not run.

Does the fan work? If yes then the compressor has a relay and overload that might be bad. Or it could be a compressor that is bad. If its a compressor then you will need to have a tech verify that it is the problem. If nothing is running then it could be a thermostat thats not switching it on. Let me know if you need any more help with it.

SOURCE: Fridge won't start, tries to but clicks off after a few seconds

compressor is broken if you are under warranty you can get it replaced. if not you should buy another one cause compressors are expensive to replace. costs about the price of a new refrigerator. you can try getting a used one from classifieds or craigslist.com

MCBR360S doesn't get cold popping sound and compressor stopped working


Unplug the unit, then remove the relay from the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it is bad and needs to be replaced. Here is a like to the new relay.

One day the freezer section iced up and then started to defrost and after that it hasnt cooled yet it runs but wont get cold.fridge is only 6 months old


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Magic Chef Model #MCBR360S just quit working all of a sudden. Any suggestions for solving this problem would be appreciated.


Check the PTC starter component. It is a small ceramic disc inside a plastic housing, attached to the side of the motor. If it is an open state, the motor will not start, If it is shorted, the motor will start, but the overload will trip in just a few seconds. The resistance across the PTC should be around 7 ohms at room temperature. I recently had the same symptoms on my MCBR440. The PTC had some arcing on it. A simple cleaning of the surfaces by scraping with a sharp knife and then reassembling it did the trick.

The resistance across the thermostat in it's running position should be zero. The resistance across the motor overload protector should be zero. The resistance across the motor windings (start, and run) should be just a few ohms. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE POWER cable before attempting to measure the resistance of any of the electrical components. All of the wiring is easily accessible from the rear.

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

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
