Is it possible to recharge Refrigerant 134A into a Magic Chef Compact Refrigerator-Model #MCBR445S1, and if so, how would I go about it?

    Where can I get a fitting to fit a charging point on a Kelvinator refigerator compressor? It uses 134a but my auto fittings won't fit. It appears to have a valve similar to a car tire, but with about a 1/4' pipe thread on the outside diameter.

Some technicians tried that, they just replace the compressor oil. But I did try that yet.

How do I recharge a magic chef mcbr440b refridgerator

You need an access valve, manifold guages, leak detector and refrigerant. If you are having to ask how, you are almost certainly not going to be able to do it. It needs leak checking first, leak repairing, vacuuming, new drier, new gas charge. Call a technician or get a new fridge

I have a Magic Chef Mini Fridge model number MCBR465S that stopped cooling. I can hear it humming but don't know how to diagnose the problem. The seal on the door is a little bent up (not really bad) on...

First fixed the seal make sure that any leaking out. And then go to the next step by checking to see if the compessor motor come on and stay running for af list 10 minute. check the temperature controls make sure they are at the set temperature.
If you go behind the fridg and take the motor temperature see is very hight you must unpluged the fridg you may have a bad motor.

Loud buzzing noise on a Magic Chef compact refrigerator help!

Disconnect power from unit. Remove the cover at the bottom, rear. Examine all refrigerant tubing for contact with other tubing or other surface. Carefully adjust the tubing to prevent contact vibration.

Is there a replacement part for the freezer compartment in a Magic Chef MCBR360S? Mine is damaged and leaked coolant and fridge no longer cools.

The evaporator can be replaced and a damaged line can be repaired. It's not cheap as a qualified tech will have to recharge the system besides the repair. With the proper model number you can look up parts here. Model number help here.
