Bought the same freezer from Home Depot, door would not open did find with a bit of detective work that if you place your fingers between the door gasket and the shell of the freezer you can break the glue type seal then door works fine. You must go across top and down both sides.

If You run Your finger in between the rubber seal that is resting on the freezer and the frame of the door , the rubber seal will break lose. When you open the door the seal is attache to the door. Just had the same problem after unboxing. Simple, just be sure to do the entire door.

Call service department. Looks like the door was put on wet paint or heated up somehow then slammed shut. Definetly poor quality control.Our store has 5 of them in stock like that with no help from the manufacturer yet after 2 moths of repeated calls.

I have a Magic Chef freezer built older than 20 years. 15.2 cu. ft. pt. no. 101403-1


Hello Darrell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

Why do you think your Magic Chef is still working after 20 years? Your unit was manufactured with reliable cast steel components.
Do you want to purchase a new unit with more efficiency with components manufactured with plastic and cast ceramic. If you do decide to purchase a more efficient unit, do not discard your well build Magic Chef. When the new unit fails after 5 years, you will always have the older well built unit.

Stand up magic cheef freezer unthawing and hot to touch


A freezer can't "unthaw". It can freeze or thaw. I assume your freezer is not cooling properly and is hot to the touch. First try defrosting the interior. Ice buildup will cause the problems you described. Also check the rear of the freezer and clean the cooling coils so they transfer heat to the outside air.
If neither of these things helps, have a professional check your Freon coolant level. You may have a leak.

No check your settings. You may try to unplug it for about a minute and then restart. If that doesn't work, call the mfr. they should help since it is new.

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.

I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been on for over 24 hrs, and it freezeswell, BUT won't turn off. Runs alllll the time. Any suggestions??


Did you transport it STANDING or LYING down?
If Standing 4 possibilities:
1. The thermostat is hosed (replace)I had one like this and just put it on a $6.00 24hr time to turn on for 1hr every 5 hrs. (New Thermostat was $40.00)

2. The heat exchange fins on the back are dirty(clean with broom and air/vacuum cleaner)

3. The Door seals arent sealing and cold air is falling out the bottom, pulling hot air in the top (rehang door or replace seal) Note: a piece of paper 2" by 8" should be hard to pull out all the way around when closed. Like a cash register reciept. Cleaning with armor-All and then thinly coating with Vaseline may help
4. The Freon is shot and needs a recharge. (Costs $40-100.00)

If transported Lying down, there is now air in the lines and it needs to stand OFF for 24hrs. You may have hosed the pump with the air/freon mix, but let it stand so the air can surface and retry

Upright freezer stopped working


That clicking sound is your compressor tightening up(clixon switching on and off.). Pull the freezer out and feel the compressor. If very hot and not running, there is your problem.
