    I just discovered that I have the same problem. I hear the click too. The compressor will sit there and get hot if you leave it plugged in.

    Won't work. Screen flashes numbers & err. Light clicks on & off. After pressing power it stops but then won't go back on.

There is a fault in compressor motor the clicking is the overload cutting off,If its a relay on the motor its worth repairing,If its the whole motor it would be too costly,I know
its not what you want to hear,but thats the size of it.the relay is in a black plastic box on the motor itself,I hope its that

I bought a new magic chef refrigerrator model# MCBR445S. Settle down by following the manual. After few hours , can hear the motor is working, but inside is not cooling at all. And the motor is very hot,...


the step you were not aware of is that the unit needs something in the compartment so that the liquid gas can boil off and produce cold
normally a jug of water will do the trick
if the water doesn't feel cool/cold after 1 hour , call the technicians for a warranty check

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

It is making a tic toc noise. It is not refrigerating. The model is : Magic Chef MCBR445W1 Thanks


the noise is from the ptc overload relay located in the lower rear on the compressor,its a safety component that aids in starting the compressor and shuts it down if the compressor overheats,unplug it off the compressor and get an exact replacement and the unit will again cool and stop tick-tocking

Refrigerator problem


I have a Magic Chef 3.6 cu. ft. Model#mcbr3605 thats 3 years old and has stopped working. When I plug it in you hear it start then you hear a "click" and it turns off. If you leave it plugged in the compressor gets hot. Can this be fixed or is it trash ? Thanks in advance.
