How do I set the temperature?


Hello Elise, The Dial should be set to the middle number three (3) to start with and allow for 24 hours of running before you make any adjustments, either up or down.

The higher the number the colder the fridge temperature will be. Just remember that it takes almost a full day for the fridge compensate for any changes to the thermostat. Also, only make adjustments in the temperature setting by only 1 increment at a time (either up or down) and again, allow 24 hours before making further changes.

If your fridge has the red button in the center of the temperature dial, that is the manual defrost button. So if you've got a build up of ice on the freezer section, just push it and it will defrost the unit for up 2-4 hours.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
Merry Christmas!

Our compact refrigerator doesn't get very cold,


One is the coldest. Post a model number and I may can help more. If it's a manual defrost then defrost it. If it's auto defrost- If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

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

Tried to lower temp...but it raised instead...can't figure it out


My daughter has an MCBR445w1, probably a similar size dorm refrigerator. It has died. I brought it home tonight to try and get it repaired. The red button in the center of the thermostat dial defrosts the unit. That's why you got the flood. On her unit, 1 is the warmest, 7 is the coldest. I'd turn it to 7 and see what happens. Keep dust off the coils if they are exposed.

I have a feeling these units are just bad refrigerators, but I will try and get hers running. Good luck with yours.
