Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators
Your refrigerator is haveing a problem in its defrost system. You have one or more of the following items bad on your refrigerator.
1. Defrost heater
2. Defrost thermostat
3. Defrost timer.
This problem will continue to get worse until your freshfood side will not be cool at all and the freezer will continue to freeze over.
To determine the one there are a few things that you can do to figure it out.
First remove everything from the freezer and look back inside the freezer. The inside backwall will be frosty looking and you will need to clear that frost away to remove the inside panel. You will also need to remove some shelves to get the panel off. You will have about 4 screws to remove then the panel will come off. Once inside you will have access to the coils and they will probably be frozen over. Defrost the ice with a hair dryer and look near the bottome for a heater element. If you have a multitester you can check continuity through the heater and replace if bad, If you do not have one then you may be able to unplug the heater and the defrost thermostat and take them to a local appliance repair shop and they can check them for you and sell you the new part if you need one. Or get you a multitester and dive in. If the heater is good and the defrost thermostat is good (the defrost thermostat is the small quarter sized disk in the freezer near the top of the coil with two wires going to it.)
Then you will most likely need a defrost thermostat.
Good luck and Im sure this will FixYa.
