My magic chef refrigerator/freezer is no longer cold. The compressor is making a click noise on and off and is hot to the touch. The fan inside freezer compartment is still blowing. What can be the problem?

You compressor is clicking trying to start. The insides of the compressor have siezed up meaning that they will not let the motor run and turn them. The motor trying to run and not being able to makes it very hot. Unplug it and let it cool down over night, it may go for a while then, but it is probably terminal. Getting the compressor replaced will cost almost as much as new. Is it possibly under warranty?

Chipping away ice in magic chef freezer section i punctured freon line in freezer panel can refridge still get cold


No, the fridge will not get cold any more. The coolant goes to the coils in the freezer. The fridge takes a small amount of cold air from the freezer to lower its temperature.

I am sorry to say that unless you can find a way to repair the puncture and refill the system with freon, you are going to have to buy another refrigerator.
