The fault is very much with the auto defrosting of your fridge. When the firdge stops cooling you are unplugging the fridge to allow it to defrost. As there is so much frost in the cooling coils there will not be any convection of the cool air from the coil as it gets blocked. So after defrost the coils get cleared and works fine till the next time frost appears. So first of all remove the freezer compartment rear covers to access the cooling coils, check for break in wires to thermostat, to the deffrosting heater or open coils in the heaters.Now trace the wires to the defrosting timer which is a 8 hours timer for defrosting the coils by the heaters. You can see if the timer is working. Now one of these could be the culprit but you will have to make sure by testing each one and confirming before replacing. Please do this step by step. Hope you get it right. If not familiar get help. Good day

On a Magic Chef # RB21K4AF where or how do I get the the evaporator fan for the refigerator compartment, the freeze is fine and I can feel cold air blowing from the vent holes in the freeze


The fan is working fine so leave it alone. If you have an issue in the fridge section not being cold enough it is because the damper mechanism that directs cold air down there is not working properly. Go here for diagram and parts Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

Age of appliance


At some point, you just have to decide if you want it or not. I can't tell you anything about it. If your friend bought it used, ask how long she's had it and estimate at least 5-10 years older than that. If it looks good, and it works good, and the price is right...... I have one similar to the one that you are considering out in my garage. Bought it at a yard sale...$40.00. Not too pretty, maybe from too many moves....Works fine, but if it died tomorrow, I have had my money's worth.

Side by side Magic Chef refrigerator. Freezer


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Could also be begining of a defrost problem.

MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Magic chef- apartment size


The unit is sealed most tecks will not recharge to small to deal with. Most common cause for this is low freon. If someone has a clamp on amp meter the wire leading to the compressor will probibly show very low amps. showing a free flow compressor. Cheaper to replace.
