Question about Magic Chef MCBR445S1 Stainless Steel Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a Magic Chef Mini Fridge model number MCBR465S that stopped cooling. I can hear it humming but don't know how to diagnose the problem. The seal on the door is a little bent up (not really bad) on one corner. Could it have cause the fridge to overwork itself? Any help would be great.

First fixed the seal make sure that any leaking out. And then go to the next step by checking to see if the compessor motor come on and stay running for af list 10 minute. check the temperature controls make sure they are at the set temperature.
If you go behind the fridg and take the motor temperature see is very hight you must unpluged the fridg you may have a bad motor.

    I can hear the motor running and the big black ball looking thing is warm, but not hot. But the line going out to the fridge (assuming that is a coolant line) is not cold at all. So I guess it is not curculating coolant. Would that be a motor problem or maybe just a relay that has gone bad?

Magic Chef Refrigerator has stopped cooling adequately.


Check the compressor and the Relay, the relay is located on the compressor itself. you should have full voltage to both of those. If oyu have voltage to the relay and not the compressor then the relay is bad. If you have power to both and the compressor will not kick on then you have a bad compressor and it is best to just replace the fridge

What could be the problem with my Magic Chef mini fridge model number MCBR465S. It comes on when I plug it in but not cool at all, and the compressor hot, could I trouble shoot and how,freon? Thx


If the compressor is actually running and there is no refrigeration, I would suggest it has a gas leak and that's why it isn't cooling. Depending on what type of refrigerant is in it, it may not be worth repairing as its only a small bar fridge? Check the rating plate to see if its R12 (Older fridges) or R134A . If the unit is less than 5 years old, it may be operating on R32 or R600 (Butane refrigerant gases) If its only a couple of years old, it may still be under Manufacturer warranty. Most fridges carry a 2 year warranty on everything and up to 5 years parts warranty on what is known as the "Sealed system"

Fridge won't start, tries to but clicks off after a few seconds


compressor is broken if you are under warranty you can get it replaced. if not you should buy another one cause compressors are expensive to replace. costs about the price of a new refrigerator. you can try getting a used one from classifieds or craigslist.com

Re: Magic Chef


If the compressor is running but the fridge is not cooling, the gas may have leaked out of the system or the compressor is inefficient. The only way to know for sure is to connect a set of gauges to the system. You will need to call in a Refrigeration Mechanic.
