Whats the problem if the compressor on r-22 10 seer is hot and will not hold a charge when charging freon


Hi,
Its time to replace unit, too costly to repair. In order to fix the unit it could run you more than replacing the unit. The leak needs to be fixed properly and can cost more the the replacement cost.

I hope this helps

The compressor overload keeps poping when i plug the unit in.


I would suggest you plug it into a power bar with surge protector to see if that solves the problem.

Hi, have a magic chef MCWC16MCG. I plugged it in to a a receptical and it wasn't working. Due to limited space I used an extension cord and a 3 prong adaptor (live and learn) so I could get it to a...


the extension cord must be # 12 wire size for better and the gorund should not be removed . ( proper polirty is important . ) do replace the start relay and if you have a ohm meter ck it for open or short to ground before installing the relay . ( good power is best ..or a short compressor life is for sure .. mm

It makes a cleck after about 2minutes after it is


It sounds like the compressor is locked up. You can unplug the unit, then access the compressor and remove the electrical cover to access the start relay on the compressor. Carefully remove, disconnect wires, and purchase a new one. Replace in reverse order of dis-assembly, and hope the compressor will start again. If not, time to buy a new wine cooler as the cost of repair will probably exceed the cost of a new cooler, unless you are within the 5 year warranty period for the compressor, and even then it will cost for labor and other consumables used to replace the compressor.

NOTHING HAVPPES WHENI PLUG IT IN AND TURN SWITCH


Hello Sir,

Make sure that the fuse or the relay of the supply unit is intact and in working condition. If not that there is some trouble in the power supply unit.

Regards.

MIni fridge stopped working/cool.


I got mine in 2005. It stopped working 4 or 5 weeks ago. It made a clicking noise and the compressor was very hot. Compressor is under warranty but appliance repair shop wanted $125 to install it and another $75 to charge it with freon. I saw a posting somewhere else that said it was a relay switch. I ordered one from RepairClinic.com for $24.00 incl. shipping, put it in and it's working now. There's a black plastic housing on the left side of the compressor. Just unscrew that, pop the cover off (that was a little tricky) and plug in the new part. Maybe I'll get another 3 years out of it.

Magic Chef wine cooler clicking


If I was abetting man - I would suspect that the fan is polarised, and has been wired incorrectly..

Check that there is nothing obvious in the way of the fan blades..
