I have an apartment size Magic Chef refrigerator. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator is slowly starting to stop cooling. Now there is condensation forming. Turned dial up but does not seem to be helping.

    My fridge has a seperate top freezer and bottom fridge, but I removed the ice-build up from behind the back of the Vent. Is that correct?

There is a vent between the fridge and freezer. The vent will eventually have ice build up and stop the air flow to the fridge. It will need to be cleaned out thruoughly.

    If you remove the farthest rear panel in the freezer, you will see the fan and vent. This vent leads to the fridge vent. The ice buildup is usually in all the venting.

I have a 13 month old apartment size Magic Chef refrige. It stopped geting cold about 1 month age. I uplugged and it work fine for until now. Same thing. Left it unplugged for a while and now it works...


The fault is very much with the auto defrosting of your fridge. When the firdge stops cooling you are unplugging the fridge to allow it to defrost. As there is so much frost in the cooling coils there will not be any convection of the cool air from the coil as it gets blocked. So after defrost the coils get cleared and works fine till the next time frost appears. So first of all remove the freezer compartment rear covers to access the cooling coils, check for break in wires to thermostat, to the deffrosting heater or open coils in the heaters.Now trace the wires to the defrosting timer which is a 8 hours timer for defrosting the coils by the heaters. You can see if the timer is working. Now one of these could be the culprit but you will have to make sure by testing each one and confirming before replacing. Please do this step by step. Hope you get it right. If not familiar get help. Good day

My Magic Chef refrigerator has stopped cooling. When I unplug it for a few days, and then plug it in, it will work for about a week, and then quit cooling again. The freezer is perfect, and continues to...


The most likely cause is that the defrost system is not working. After about a week it builds up with enough frost to stop the cold air from getting to the refrigerator section. The most common problem is the defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat.

Side by side Magic Chef refrigerator. Freezer


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

Could also be begining of a defrost problem.

MAGIC CHEF CTF1920ARA - Freezer works, Refrig. portion does not.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
