Question about Magic Chef Freezers

Should green "compressor on" light always be on?

I just purchased a Magic Chef Chest Freezer. When I plugged it in the power light was red and the compressor on light was green. I set it to level 4. I came back to check on it a few hours later and the inside is getting cold, however, the green light is now off. Should it stay on?

Read the user manual
the light may only come on when the compressor is working
talk with a service agent for the unit and ask them

Chest freezer not working. Light inside chest freezer comes on but green power light doesn't turn on and freezer makes no sound. What could be the problem.


Could be your thermostat is bad and not calling for the compressor to come on. If you are able see if there is power getting to the compressor. If not then back track to where you are loosing power (thermostat) etc.

Magic Chef HMCF7WI is the green light suppose to go off ?


I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit.

Red light is on all the time, wont stop running


Some freezers have a pilot light that is constantly on whenever power is being applied. If the compressor seem to run constantly, check for a bad lid seal. Also, the thermostat may at may be defective

No check your settings. You may try to unplug it for about a minute and then restart. If that doesn't work, call the mfr. they should help since it is new.

Magic Chef Chest Freezer MCCF5WBX is not getting power, green light not on


Check your outlet with something else that will work, like a radio. If the green light does not come on, then check the wiring. The green light should be on even if the freezer has reached it's temperature. That is simply a light to indicate that power is at the receptacle.

Magic chef freezer temperature indicator light on, not usually on?


Is it a red light? If so it's not reaching temperature (the alarm is about -12c) If it's a yellow light, you've accidentally switched on "fast freeze". If it's a green light it's just the power supply light.

My red light is on and the freezer is not making any sound and is not staying cold


The red light indicates temperature zone crucial. Listen for the sound of the compressor. If it's on and appears to be running, check the condenser to see if it is warm. If so, a faulty compressor may be the problem.

THE GREEN POWER LIGHT FLICKERS, AND COOLS ONLY WHEN THE FAST FREEZE POWER BUTTON IS TURNED ON


This sounds like the freezer stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit. Whilst sourcing the part, put a standard socket timer on to the plug to stop the unit running all the time.
