1) Either the ice cubicles are not filling with water, or 2) The ice is not dumping into the bin after it freezes.

To check for #1, you should be able to look into the ice cubicles to see if they're filled with water (or ice). If they are, go to #2. If not, you've probably got a defective water valve.

If the cubicles are full of ice or water, but don't dump out, the most likely culprit is the cubicle heater, which slightly heats the walls of the cubicles so that the ice can be more easily ejected into the bin. Unless you're VERY mechanically inclined, this is a job best left for an appliance repairman.,

Hi,
You could have the lack of air flow or a door seal problem. Could you check the freezer for me, look for frost on the back wall. If not frost, is the fan running in the freezer?
Please get back to me

My magic chef rb193p fridge wont stop running. I replaced the fan motor 4 months ago. The top of the fridge compartment is freezing. Is the defrost timer bad?


I had the same problem. When the evaporator heater stops working, frost will build up until there is no air flow to the refrigerator. This will cause the refrigerator to keep running. Remove everything from the freezer and remove the pan at the bottom and see if there is a frost buildup. .... Bruce

Magic Chef MCBR445W1 seems like it dosen,t stop


Hello,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.

Check on the cold control if faulty, replace the cold control, not having found any other problem, do check on plastic air deflector at the top rear of the frig had been knocked off. replaced it if faulty. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.
Good luck.......

Side by side Magic Chef refrigerator. Freezer


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Could also be begining of a defrost problem.
