    I checked what you suggested. However, there was not frost on the evaporator nor was there any clogs that would bother the airflow.

    I do hear a click every few minutes. It is almost like the system wants to come on, but cannot. Perhaps this is the problem.

First the freezer does all the cooling there are air vents in top of the refrigerator that the evaporator fan draws air through then blows it down to cool the fridge in the fridge section you should see an air vent if you don't have a defrost problem then you have an air flow problem first do you hear the fan running if you see heavy frost on the back wall of the freezer wall where the fan is then you have a defrost problem and that's a different repair but if you don't then remove the four screws and pull the panel carefully as the fan is there see if there is heavy frost on the evaporator a large aluminum honey comb so much that air cannot come through it under that part will be an a tray with around hole in it make sure that's is not frozen and the drain hole is open then check that the square hole that goes down to the fridge is clear and check the two square styrofoam intake blocks are clea you an pull them out gently and see if its iced up under there after you check that reply to me on any fault

MCBR1020W is the model number for the refrigerator in my apartment. The refrigerator fresh food unit is not getting cold enough to keep food cold, this results in food spoiling. What could be causing this...


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?

My Magic Chef mini fridge temperature trouble


That can be very difficult to do with a mini refrigerator. There is just not enough separation between the freezer and the refrigerator.

You will likely just have to find a compromise setting and accept the results.

Bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough, freezer is working fine, - Magic Chef -model MCBR1000w


have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

Need a defrost cycle i think


lots of frost may mean lots of moisture, check the door seals to make sure they are in good condition and sealing well. In high humidity climates interior frost is more of an issue too. If the seals are making good contact and not broken or split it could be a defrost timer or defrost thermostat malfunction. try to catch the fridge defrosting and ensure that the drain pan has water coming into it, a clogged drain will slowly but surely make a fridge ice up.

Refridgerator/Freezer will not get cold


Check to see if the refrigerator is clean at the condensor at the bottom or at the top of the unit. All fans running inside and outside the unit? Door gaskets sealing tightly. Put a dollar bill between the door gasket and cabinet and clost the door. Slight drag ok. No rsistane, bad gasket. No solution at this point, call for service.
