Repair manual for magic chef refirigerator, model CTB1720ARW

Magic Chef is now owned by CNA International. Mark St., Wood Dale, IL. You can contact them at: 1.630.238.9800. They may be willing to send you the manual that you need (see below how I do it).
For repair I have found an amazing online resource to help me fix my own appliances. It is called Repair Clinic and can be accessed at this URL:
The Repair Clinic (no I don't work there and I don't own stock) has troubleshooting directions on there searchable website and suggested causes for your units problem (search will require part number and you choose which problem closely resembles your situation). The best thing is they have very good videos on how to do the repair (DIY). I have had great success fixing my appliances with no previous experience (I am handy with fixing things though).
The manufacturer probably will send you a manual if you are chatty and talk about how great their products are. I have had success with this in the past.
Other than that I usually will do a online search with the specific thing I am looking for... In this case it would be, "free manual for my magic chef refrigerator freezer - model CTB1720ARW". I found so much info on just typing in the CTB #.
Have you tried Sears Direct? or the current owners of Magic Chef which I mentioned above?
Hope this will help you.... cmilton111

At work one of our units gets too cold in the fridge and the tenant says it freezes her eggs.Do I need a new t stat?

if the eggs are placed directly where the cold air from the freezer enters the refirigerator section, they would freeze. The temp of air coming into the ref. sect. is about 12 degrees, by the time it fills the ref. section it is around 38 degrees. try moving the eggs to a middle shelf (just not on the top shelf), If that doesn't work then I would replace the thermostat.

The icemaker in my 10 year old side by side Galery series refirigerator doesn't work. How can I turn it off so that it doesn't use water every 15 minutes or so?

lifting the arm on the side of the ice maker will prevent the ice maker from cycling, assuming there is nothing wrong with the ice maker. However, simply turning off the ice maker may not prevent any problems you may be experiencing

Maytag refirigerator not freezing/cooling

Turned out to be a bad circuit board on the back of the unit which caused the refrigerator/freezer to freeze up. Replace it, thawed the refrigerator compartment, and it works fine. Cost me less than $200 including service call.
