Question about Magic Chef CTB1722 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

We have a Magic Chef CTB177GR refrigerator (no ice maker hooked up) that leaks...from where I don't know. I took off the lower back cover, it is dusty but no water present there. I pulled out the crispers and no water there. What next? Thanks.

Good day.
Water can only come from one place, where the frost is melted off the coil in the freezer during it's normal defrost cycles that occur daily.
Two styles. One style allows this condensed water to run down the back wall of the inside of the refrigerator, under the crispers and thru a hole in the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan positioned
under the hole.
Possible missing pan, not positioned properly, or crack in the drain pan itself.
The other style drains the water to a hose mounted on the back of the machine, down and then into the pan.
Possible hose blocked, not connected properly, or the other items as described in first style.
It's a look-see type of repair.

Hello we have a magic chef refmodelctf1826arq which started to leak water onto the floor from underneath I can not find the reason why leaking ref is cold, and ice maker working.


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Magic Chef refrigerator model CTF1923. erratic ice production


As long as your freezer temperature is at 0 you should have steady ice production. If you have to jumper the ice maker to get it to harvest then you most likely have a bad thermostat. That coupled with the leak issue really warrants just replacing the entire ice maker.
Be sure to ask for pricing on both the ice maker by itself as well as the complete kit. You may be surprised to find that the entire kit (including a new valve, line and bucket) will cost lest than just the ice maker by itself.
Good luck!

Magic Chef Side by Side MOdel RC224RDA


I have the same problem. It turned out to be a problem with the doors. When my kids go to get a snack and close the fridge door (read slam the door) the air pressure pops the seal open on the freezer door causing the ice cubes to begin melting. The bottom items stay frozen (warm air rises). It took me a long time to work this out.
Remove the ice maker tray. Remove the ice blob, being careful to put the u-shaped wire ice-level sensing wire thing, in the up position or the system will dump ice and water all over the freezer. Put all back clean and dry and buy a velcro adhesive strip and install it on top of the freezer door to prevent the door from always blowing open.
Hope this helps
