    I now have discovered the problem. The door liner has pulled away from the bolts. The bolts are still in place. How do I get the liner to seal to the bolts again? The liner has ripped away from the bolts so that there is a hole all the way thru to the edge. the liner is part of the whole door compartment. I do not want to replace the door.

What do mean when you say that it wont close? There are only three things that could cause this:
1. There is something blocking the door from the inside
2. There is an issue with the magnetic seal that is around the door.
3. There is a problem with the alignment of the door.

1. Is obviously something you checked for the only thing that you might have missed is ice and this is not likely.
2. The seals on the door are actually prone to compression and they done spring back nicely. They have test for them and that test is that if you close the door on a piece of paper and you can pull that paper out of the seal between the door and the wall then it is not good. The way to fix this is to get a blow drier. (techs use a heat gun but it gets too hot for DIYer) Put the drier on high heat and heat the seal a little at a time and pull it out away from the door as you get it hot. This expands that compression that takes place over time.
3. Some units have adjustable hinges. You can make it a left hand or right hand door. If that is the case then the hinges can be removed from the top and bottom of the frame and replaced on the other side. THe problem may lie in the loosening of the bolts or cap screws that hold the hinges in place. You can check this easily with a wrench. Last but not least the hinges could be sprung out of shape from force and you can adjust them with the same pressure that made them bend out of shape.

Magic chef microwave runs backwards with door closed and no time set - works normally when time is set and door is closed - any ideas?

Probably a bad door switch or door switch mount. See help file here.

It's normal for a microwave turntable to run either direction at random. That's common in such AC motors.

Not cooling

From my earlier post, our compact Magic Chef 'frig was not running at all.  It still looks perfect, so decided to check on the repair.  It turned out to be the "starter switch," I think is what the switch was called.  The repairman said this is a very common problem, so he had the switch we needed in his truck.  It was repaired quickly and is running great.  
Cost was about $140, part plus labor.  A replacement would have been only a few dollars more, but would take more time and effort.  FYI, the compressor on these Magic Chef refrigerators has a 5-yr warranty.
Hope that helps someone. Jaci
