Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Magic Chef 18EYW-2 fridge. It's cooling but clicking, sometimes loud. There's just a black plastic box next to the compressor. Is this a relay that needs replacing? OK to be noisy?

Can you tell where the clicking is coming from?
There is a relay switch on the compressor that will click if it shorts out or if the compressor locks up.
It could also be a thermostat problem.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: noisy refrigerator compressor (?)

This is a compressor problem, and chances are there for this to worsen if not attended promptly.

SOURCE: compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new

If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

SOURCE: MIni fridge stopped working/cool.

I got mine in 2005. It stopped working 4 or 5 weeks ago. It made a clicking noise and the compressor was very hot. Compressor is under warranty but appliance repair shop wanted $125 to install it and another $75 to charge it with freon. I saw a posting somewhere else that said it was a relay switch. I ordered one from RepairClinic.com for $24.00 incl. shipping, put it in and it's working now. There's a black plastic housing on the left side of the compressor. Just unscrew that, pop the cover off (that was a little tricky) and plug in the new part. Maybe I'll get another 3 years out of it.

The light may be old, and need repairing, I would try contacting somebody local rather than buying a new one.

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"

Fridge is not cooling or freezing


can you tell me the model # on the fridge please? the motor is running continuously because it's trying to cool the fridge. it may be a few things, the defrost thermostat, the fan motor itself or the compressor.
