Sounds like a freon leak or your compressor is bad. Sorry.

HH error code? on magic chef mcbc580dbt


I, too, have just seen (late June 2013) the "HH" code on my Magic Chef wine cooler (and it is running too cold and I can't reset the temperature). Have you found a solution since your posting of about 1 year ago?

Magic Chef Refrigerator has stopped cooling adequately.


Check the compressor and the Relay, the relay is located on the compressor itself. you should have full voltage to both of those. If oyu have voltage to the relay and not the compressor then the relay is bad. If you have power to both and the compressor will not kick on then you have a bad compressor and it is best to just replace the fridge

Unit stopped cooling. Measured circuit resistance L1 to L2, approx 10 ohms. Plugged unit in, heard a click in a few seconds. Unplugged and measured circuit resistance which indicated circuit open. ...


You'll need a 3-1 start kit. The clicking is those starting components. We shipped one out yesterday for 35.00 and that included overnight Sat. delivery the part alones was 20.00 with instructions. Very easy and the replacement kit is better than the original parts and available at most any appliance parts store. Good luck.

It is making a tic toc noise. It is not refrigerating. The model is : Magic Chef MCBR445W1 Thanks


the noise is from the ptc overload relay located in the lower rear on the compressor,its a safety component that aids in starting the compressor and shuts it down if the compressor overheats,unplug it off the compressor and get an exact replacement and the unit will again cool and stop tick-tocking

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
