Not a themostat. 3 most common causes are defrost problem (frost on back freezer panel), bad evaporator fan motor, or damper.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing food and fridge not staying cold enough

Check the compressor with a volt meter, if the compressor is getting proper voltage then check the relay. But this sounds like a problem with the compressor

MCBR1020W is the model number for the refrigerator in my apartment. The refrigerator fresh food unit is not getting cold enough to keep food cold, this results in food spoiling. What could be causing this...


Hi,
You could have the lack of air flow or a door seal problem. Could you check the freezer for me, look for frost on the back wall. If not frost, is the fan running in the freezer?
Please get back to me

Magic Chef fridge too cold - defrosted it unplugged it - set the control to 1 and it still is freezing things


On the MCBR170 refrigerator the plastic clip the holds the the temperature probe to the bottom of the freezer compartment will break off and allow the probe to hang freely in the back of the fridge. This could be the problem with the refrigerator. I had this problem and used zip ties to hold the probe in the proper position.

Hi my lower part nolonger gets cold enough to keep fresh foods yet the freezer is working well


Set dials to middle setttings, if the colder /warmer dial is peffed max cold its max cold freezer!!! so move to warmer and the freezer will give more airflow to the reefer , the reefer is reliant upon the freezer for its cold air.

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.......

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.
