Magic Chef MCWC30MCG not getting cold anymore?

HI......I have a wine cooler: Magic Chef MCWC30MCG, and it is not getting cold anymore. I can hear a 'click' sound every few minutes, but the normal compresor sound never comes on. The compresor tank (large black tank under the unit?) is hot to the touch. What can I do?

Thanks.

Harry

    I have the same problem, I think that it started happening after a power surge. I hear it click on, but it does not cool. Is there a reset somewhere?

Replace PTC Starter and that is it. You can also try to open and clean contacts, I did and it worked.

Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model MCWC44DZ Where can I


On the Magic Chef site you can order parts for the cooler. I took mine out and treid to find them on the web somewhere else and could not locate them anywhere except China and England. I know this isn't true but tried every search option I could think of. They are about $22 plus shipping (HIGH).

I have a magic chef wine cooler model mcwc16mcg justs keeping clicking not cold anymore , can this be fixed


A clicking sound every few minutes usually means the compressor is going off on overload when trying to start. This could mean the start parts are bad, or the compressor went bad.

You need to replace the Ptc unit attached to the compressor. Go to REPAIR CLINIC.COM and order the following part. 1206838 Ptc relay. They also will show you were it is located and how to replace it. Compressor tanks very rarely go bad. It is an $11.00 dollar part
