If it started cooling your ok. If the compressor got real loud and quit you could be in trouble. The problem comes from the liquid in the system getting on top of the compresser piston. It doesn't always happen when a unit is moved.

Magic Chef RB15FA0AA Refrigerator I have this refrigerator and it still works fine. I would like to know it's total cu ft capacity. Also what the refrigerator and freezer each cu ft capacity is.


After some work online...I found this advertisement buried among a bunch of other ads:
Magic Chef RB15-1A: Top-freezer style with 14.6 cubic ft. capacity and optional ice maker -- $439.

So, as I suspected the "15" in the model number is the cubic feet (total I would say). The 14.5 is probably actual, with the unit "rated" as a 15 CF.

Naturally, to find the cu. ft of the freezer, measure in inches then multiply the width X height X depth and divide that resulting rather large number by 1728 to get your cubic feet of the freezer.

You could also do the same with the refrigerated section, and add the results together and they should be near 14.5 total.

I just sold my Magic chef refrigerator (20.8 cu ft). It was 2 years old . I plugged it in for the buyer. It got cold as it worked perfectly. the buyer said he was going to lay it down to transport it...


i have been i the appliance service industry for approx. 18 years and everytime i see someone lay a refrigerator down or talk about it i literally cringe.... it can be done and sometimes will work ,but what happens if it does not sit upright and notice i said and all the oil runs back down it will fail everytime.... the oil gets in the evaporator and then will not run correct when the compressor comes on it pushes that oil through system and will clog capillary tubes and or slug unit creating it not to pump properly.... guarantee this is what happened to the unit... if it indeed worked fine before you sold it he either allowed oil to saturate the evap coil or something in the sealed system broke in transport causing freon to leak out...

The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not


I have the same one. It was outside in the garage-brand new-had that same problem. We taped foam insulation on sides and parts of the back-that worked! We have since moved and now it is in the climate controlled basement and works fine w/o duct tape! get what you pay for huh?!
