Have the same problem with my 3 year old bar fridge. I could hear a clicking sound like it was trying to come on. Unplugged it and bought a new one. I figure the cost to repair a $100 bar fridge may not be worth it. They will charge you to come out and then charge you for the parts. For a little over $100 I bought a new one.
On the new fridge, the freezer gets colder than the fridge part..but luckily for me, it is still under warranty (Manufacturer's). I'll call for a look see-who knows maybe that guy can tell me what's wrong with the other one, too. ;-)

What could be the problem with my Magic Chef mini fridge model number MCBR465S. It comes on when I plug it in but not cool at all, and the compressor hot, could I trouble shoot and how,freon? Thx


If the compressor is actually running and there is no refrigeration, I would suggest it has a gas leak and that's why it isn't cooling. Depending on what type of refrigerant is in it, it may not be worth repairing as its only a small bar fridge? Check the rating plate to see if its R12 (Older fridges) or R134A . If the unit is less than 5 years old, it may be operating on R32 or R600 (Butane refrigerant gases) If its only a couple of years old, it may still be under Manufacturer warranty. Most fridges carry a 2 year warranty on everything and up to 5 years parts warranty on what is known as the "Sealed system"

Magic chef 10 cu fridge makes ticking noise but works fine


Some times refrigerators make a noise that sounds like a tick. It could be caused from the refrigerant flowing through the lines. This usually happens when the refrigerator first starts up and goes away after a few minutes. the other possibility is a fan motor blade taping the shroud from time to time. The refrigerant issue is not something that can be fixed. The fan blade issue could be fixed by moving the fan blade back or froward on the shaft a slight amount. If you have a 10 cu ft refrigerator it may not have a fan.

Magic Chef Mini-Fridge not Working, Model # MCBR360S


Unplug and look for the thermostat control. Try jumping the thermostat wires together. If it runs then replace the thermostat. Also feel the compressor to see if running, they run very silently. Thanks, Sea Breeze

MAGIC CHEF 5 YRS OLD WONT AGITATE


Ours started doing the very same thing. I took the top off and found that a mouse had chewed a hole in the vacuum tube. I replaced it with a 3/16" ID small engine gas line hose I bought at local implement dealer. Works like a charm.

Fridge won't run


hi brenda,

can u hear a humming sound as if it is trying to start then it would stop after a clicking sound?
if it does then it is your compressor trying to start but can not do it.

you could either have a problem in your starting relay of overload protector of the compressor or the compressor itself is the defective part and it needs to be replaced.

i hope i was able to help.

pls rate me

tnx

Re: Magic Chef


If the compressor is running but the fridge is not cooling, the gas may have leaked out of the system or the compressor is inefficient. The only way to know for sure is to connect a set of gauges to the system. You will need to call in a Refrigeration Mechanic.
