Question about Magic Chef Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our Magic Chef fridge model # MCBR1000W does not seem to be keeping the fridge part cool enough, but still keeps the items in the freezer section frozen. The compressor is working, so not sure why this is happening. If the freezer compartment was overly filled, could this be an issue? Does the refridgerator portion get it's cooling from the vents in the front of the freezer section? And if it does, if the freezer door was not closed tightly would this affect the temperature in the fridge compartment. Thank you!

Yes the freezer door not closing properly will effect the refrigerator. also check in the freezer back wall and bottom for any frost buildup. 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.

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

Hello,

Quite often when the door gets open for a extended period of time the vents in the ceiling of refrig.compantment where the cold air from the freezer enters the ref.section...by looking up in the rear of the ref.ceiling you should be able to see these vents and see if they are frozen..if they are frozen a hair blow dryer will thaw them

Where here in the east coast are ya im 20 miles north of the epicenter in dumfries va

My Magic Chef mini fridge temperature trouble


That can be very difficult to do with a mini refrigerator. There is just not enough separation between the freezer and the refrigerator.

You will likely just have to find a compromise setting and accept the results.

Bottom of refrigerator not getting cold enough, freezer is working fine, - Magic Chef -model MCBR1000w


have you cleaned out the coils underneath the fridge? it's very simple. pull the fridge out, look underneath(try pulling off the bottom grill from the front for more access), and start cleaning. to much dust and lint will hinder the coils from cooling. A vacuum with the brush attachment or little broom works good.

Chiping ice out of freezer section with chisle and entered a "cavity" under freezer shelf...seemed like freon gas came out of it. Is the refriderator toast? It is a Magic Chef mini-freezer.


Sound like you punctured one of the molded channels in the freezer shelf that carries the refrigerant.  Probably can't be fixed.  Possibly could be replaced.  Consult a service technician if the fridge is new enough to keep.  If it does not have an auto-defrost or frost-free function it is probably too old to be worth repairing.
