Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators

1 Answer

My sister has a 5 year old refrigerator model CTF1920ARW. As she moved to another town the ice machine is not working vey well, making just a litle bit of ice. The filter is ok, but it takes a whole day to make a half a dozen ice cubes. She lives in Brazil, but if there is a need for any piece, we have a niece living in NY who comes very often to visit. Can you please help me? Or is there anywhere in Brazil to give us a solution? She lives in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Thank you very much for your assistance. Best Regards. Virginia Guedes

Hello,

With your ice maker not working properly, you might be wondering the reason behind the malfunctioning of your ice maker. Several factors could be involved in case your ice maker is not making any ice at all. It might be caused due to a defect in the water supply line. It could be possible that the water valve isn't getting any water. Check the water line at the back of the freezer for any blockage. Look for the water shut-off valve placed behind the refrigerator or under the sink and turn it off.

Next step would be to unscrew the copper line located at the back of the refrigerator. Now place the copper line in a bucket and turn on the valve to check if pressurized water comes out. The problem could also be linked to a defective tap valve. You could have it replaced. Since, freezer temperature can also be responsible for ice maker malfunctioning, make sure the freezer is not too warm.

Take care.

The issue is likely that the icemaker fill tube is frozen due to poor water pressure. You can use a turkey baster to thaw this tube which fills the icemaker. Make sure you use plenty of hot water because they often freeze back several inches!

Water leaking out through the frot door


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Hooked up waterline to side by side frigiedaire,


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice maker not working


Hello bnelson488,

Since the ice maker is erationally starting and stopping at it's own leisure.

1.We must first try to turn off the fridge.

2.unplug it or if you can not reach the plug you can turn off the breaker to the fridge also, for 5 minutes!
After this you restart the fridge and see if the system reset it self.
This is a common way to reset some units!

If nothing works then perhaps the ice maker needs to be replaced.

How old the fridge?
Let me know how it works and if you have any questions.

Please remember to give a rating before you finish..
bless you
Huuum.


Here is an interesting article I just read.


Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
