Magic Chef frig model MCBR1000F stopped cooling after 4 years.

I have Magic Chef frig model MCBR1000F for about 4 years. Recently it starts less cooling effectively. Yesterday, it totally stop cooling. I unplugged and found a lot of water underneath. I un-screwed the tray and cleaned up, now I'm letting it dry. I plan to re-plug it in a few days and see if I can get it back. But before that, do you have any clue what's happening to this frid ?

You need to make sure the condenser pump and coils are vacuumed twice a year. Heavy dust will overheat the coils causing the freon to be more of a gas then a liquid, thus less coiling.

My Magic Chef refrigerator model CTB1722GR is blowing nothing but warm air. Compressor failure???


Good day,
Four possibilities.
1. The condenser cooling fan motor located on the bottom back of the machine between the compressor, and box condenser has failed, and needs replaced. It should be running if the fan in the freezer is running.
2. Loss of refrigerant or a restriction in the system. Testing limited to a qualified tech only.
3. The combo relay overload mounted on the compressor( under a cover) has failed. Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you.
4. Locked compressor. Tech only solution.

PS. If the machine is less than 5 years old, the compressor is under warranty. Contact your selling dealer.

Thank you for using FixYa

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

Power Consumption - Magic Chef Wine Cooler


The unit will draw between 6 and 12 amps on start up and running it should use less than 1.6 amps. The start up amps will increase with age. Funny how that works the same for people as it does for machines. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate. Mike

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.
