Question about Magic Chef Chest Freezer MCCF5WBX

1 Answer

MCCF7W Runs, but won't freeze....

I am having the same issue. About 10 days AFTER the 1 year warranty period, it just quit running. Go figure. I've unplugged it for 4 days and tried it again. It will run for about 2~3 hours and only get down to 50 degrees. Not sure what else to do with it.... Anyone? Thanks!!

Sounds like the refrigeratnt has leaked out. It is not worth repairing. The only other possibility is the cold control but I would not buy one until a servicer has looked at it.

Not freezing


There are many reasons why is not working. 1.if the compressor is not running, Relay or overload burn, they are attached to the side of the compressor 2, thermostat may not be working. 3. if all of the part i mentioned are working fine your compressor may need to be replace.4 if the compressor runs but still don't get cool, there is a internal gas leak inside the freezer. The only way to find out theses issues, is by having the necessary tools and experience.

Hi...I just purchased a new kenmore elite and it is not freezing...please help


Good day,
I don't quite get your question. If it's brand new (under one year old) and you have allowed it to run for 24 hours and it refuses to freeze, then it is an issue Sears would have to resolve.
Everything on the machine has at least a one year warranty.
Just call them for a warranty call and leave it on and running, so they can see the problem.

Have upright Frigidaire freezer, about 2 yrs old, that quit running. Local repair guy replaced part with "3 n/1 Start" solid state relay overload capacitor combination. Worked great for 2 weeks then...


Good day,
That's a no-no. Your compressor carries a 5 year warranty from the factory. However, if anything is altered on it the warranty is voided. You've got an issue with this guy.

Chest Freezer MCCF7WBX.Magic Chef.. Worked fine for a 1.5 years. Compressor turned off & on to cool unit when needed. The way it should. Now it continuously runs. Unfortunately the warranty is out....


Good day,
Could be a tstat, but the machine should be running extremely cold.
Confused as to the age. You said it was 1 1/2 years old. If that is the case. the compressor,and all connecting tubing are under a 5 year factory warrant.
You could replace the tstat, and if within a few days the problem isn't solved, then the rest of the serious problems are covered by factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for factory warranty service.

Freezer not freezing


Is it running? You might need to put your ear up to machine, to hear it, They run very quitely.
If not running, could be a bad cold control (thermostat), or defective relay and overload mounted on the compressor body.
If the compressor is running but no cooling, then you're in serious trouble unless,
The unit is 5 years old or newer. In that case you have factory warranty on what is called the sealed system. Contact the dealer in that case for service. Service should be free.
