Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators

1 Answer

Side-by-side, 21.3 cubic ft total. The freezer is working very well, but the refrigerator side is not cooling sufficiently. I unplugged it a week ago and wondered if I plugged it back in if it might start working properly or is there a part that needs replacing.

With it being unplugged for a week it will be hard to call. Plug the machine back in and first check to see if the fan in the freezer compartment starts running. IF it does let the the machine stay on. I'm betting it will start working fine for a few days and then you'll start seeig the same problem again. The reason being is that you more than likely have a defrost system issue, which consist of defrost heaters, a bi-metal thermostat, ad a defrost timer sometimes call an adaptive defrost control. The way to know if this is the problem is you'll start noticing a build up of ice on the back freezer wall. The way to check the heaters is to unplug the machine, take an ohm meter and check for continuity on the heaters which are located behind the freezer back panal. Nine times out of ten though for this brand it will be the defrost timer, but change the bi-metal thermostat which is located near the defrost heaters anyway because its a very cheap part and will save you from doing it later.

Magic Chef RB15FA0AA Refrigerator I have this refrigerator and it still works fine. I would like to know it's total cu ft capacity. Also what the refrigerator and freezer each cu ft capacity is.


After some work online...I found this advertisement buried among a bunch of other ads:
Magic Chef RB15-1A: Top-freezer style with 14.6 cubic ft. capacity and optional ice maker -- $439.

So, as I suspected the "15" in the model number is the cubic feet (total I would say). The 14.5 is probably actual, with the unit "rated" as a 15 CF.

Naturally, to find the cu. ft of the freezer, measure in inches then multiply the width X height X depth and divide that resulting rather large number by 1728 to get your cubic feet of the freezer.

You could also do the same with the refrigerated section, and add the results together and they should be near 14.5 total.

Refrigerator will not defrost or cool


Either your fan is going out or you have a blockage.Replace the fan after you totally defrost it.
Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working becuse it is still frozen,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.
