Compressor is in a locked up/ no start condition. the overload cools enough to reset and tries to start it again and kicks out on amp draw, then the whole cycle starts over again.

Shuts off - compressor not on


could well need re-gassing or it could be a blockage in ur compressor. If it comes on and you get a buzzz...click this is normally the problem.

Compressor not working


This is such a vague problem you are describing. Could be a number of things. However, I can give you some advice to help determine if its the compressor or not. Typically when compressors are not running, even though they are suppose to be, you can hear a "click" sound come from bottom back area of fridge. This "click" sound may be preceeded by a few second long hum or buzz, or it may just be a click every couple of minutes. If you hear that then you know the compressor is trying to run, but isnt. Also, make sure that when you open the freezer door you can hear the evaporator fan running. If that fan is not running, but the compressor is, then you have bad evap fan.

I found an mcbr445 fridge, plugged it in and hear power but after 2-3 min a click and no power. compressor is getting warm and so is the black and white power connector.


you have a compressor that is hard starting. sometimes putting a 3-n-1 hard start on it will work but it is probably bad windings in the compressor. sounds like it could be time for a new compressor

My Magic Chef Mini Fridge just stopped but the compressor is hot.


ok In the rear bottom where the wires plug into the compressor. There will be a plastic cover plate over the connecting wires. Remove it. Unplug the white wire. note the white wire was plugged into a small black box (3/4"x3/4") pull the black box out. It is connected by 2 prongs. If you open this up you will find a small metal disk that looks like a watch battery. pop it out and clean the contacts. put it all back together and it should work fine. I believe it is the thermostat and many times gets bad contacts and can even crack over time. The compressor will "click" on but the bad thermostat tells it "no"
