SOURCE: magic chef gas/electric rv fridge

Mod. R47 gas RV fridge 1973. It lights and gets cold (sometimes below freezing in the bottom of frige) then it starts to warm up above 55, but the flame is still burning high. I try to turn it down with the fridge thremostate and it stays the same. Is it the thermostate? If so where can I order one?

SOURCE: My Magic Chef mini fridge temperature trouble

That can be very difficult to do with a mini refrigerator. There is just not enough separation between the freezer and the refrigerator.

You will likely just have to find a compromise setting and accept the results.

My magic chef rb193p fridge wont stop running. I replaced the fan motor 4 months ago. The top of the fridge compartment is freezing. Is the defrost timer bad?


I had the same problem. When the evaporator heater stops working, frost will build up until there is no air flow to the refrigerator. This will cause the refrigerator to keep running. Remove everything from the freezer and remove the pan at the bottom and see if there is a frost buildup. .... Bruce

The freezer is COLD..freezes solid. Setting at low. The frige part is not cold and is set at high. Seems everything is going up to the freezer. Unit is just over 1 year old. Drinks are cool but not...


where is the freezer on top,side by side or the bottom.all a fridge does is blow cold air from the freezer to the fridge side that's it,if the fridge is warm there's a problem most likely in the freezer,a plugged drain or when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not you have a bad evap fan motor,also check your warranty it still might be covered.send the model number and i can help you,if you see water under the bottom draws or in the fridge section if the freezer is on top you have a blocked drain in the freezer.let me know what you find and i can help you

Magic Chef MCBR445W1 seems like it dosen,t stop


Hello,

Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.

Check on the cold control if faulty, replace the cold control, not having found any other problem, do check on plastic air deflector at the top rear of the frig had been knocked off. replaced it if faulty. As you know, the deflector directs the freezer air toward the front of the frig and the rear of the cold control, which is now functioning properly.
Good luck.......
