I have a Magic Chef compact refrigerator model MCBR270 that now runs constantly and freezes everything I put in it no matter what setting is used on the temperature control knob. What can I do to diagnose...

Well, this answer is 6 years late.

I have the same model MC frig - 14 years old. There is only two electrical components; the compressor and the thermostat. Since the compressor is running and freezing, the thermostat must be stuck on. You need to replace the thermostat. My thermostat is also bad. I can't find one. One of the numbers on the thermostat is LR62862. Another is PFN-110U 02D. May be time for a new frig.

Help!i have a maytag refrigerator model #mtb2172hr that stopped getting cold on and off and i hear a buzzing noise on and off around compressor area.the fridge is 5 yrs.old.i hear the motor and fan still...

Sounds like a bad overload relay capacitor on your compressor, or a bad compressor. If it is under 5 years you usually have a 5 year sealed system warrantee that pays for parts and labor on the compressor. It does not pay for a relay overload capacitor. The problem is some warrantee companies will void your warrantee if you or an unauthorized servicer works on your unit. I would recommend you have maytag send out a technician to diagnose this, mainly because I have seen a lot of bad Maytag compressors lately. If it is over 5 years old you can replace the overload relay capacitor and test to see if it works. Before you do this you should remove the old overload relay capacitor from the compressor and do a continuity test between all three terminals and between the terminals and the compressor case. You should have continuilty between the terminals but not between the terminal and the case. If you dont have continuity between the terminals or if you do have continuity between a terminal and the case, then you have a bad compressor. Do not install the new overload relay capacitor as you cannot return these to the parts house once they have been installed. Even after all the tests and even if your compressor starts up you can still have a compressor failure within a couple of days. A technician can hook up your compressor to a tester and determine if it is good or bad. If a compressor is bad it usually costs 900 to 1100.00 to replace through any of the service companies in my area. Not worth repairing. Hope this helps, Appliance Specialists

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound

Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

Fan running,both cold settings at 4 , freezer 14 degrees C

you need to replace the start components on the compressor, theres a relay that mounts on to the compressor that takes out the start winding after it starts the compressor up. You can also try whats called a three in one to try to start up the unit. Good Luck.

Frig section not cooling and at time appears to stop but freezer is ok

There is one compressor, condenser and evaporator in all refrigerators. The part that makes the cold inside the unit is the evaporator. It's in the freezer, behind a barrier on the back wall. It's a "coil" with many small fins. There is a fan that blows air over the evaporator which makes the air cold. This air comes from the freezer and stays in the freezer. The cold food section (the refrigerator) has a control that opens a hole for air to pass from the freezer to the fridge. This being can rule out the "temperature control" for the fridge.

The sound you hear could be the compressor relay, the evaporator fan or maybe something else. It could be bad, it could be not too bad. (Like a fan blade a bit unbalanced with dust)

OK,,, back to the evaporator. There is a little heater next to the coil that turns on every 8 hours or so to defrost the coil. That's called the "defrost cycle". Makes sense, no? If the defrost timer (common problem) or defrost control board (common problem) go bad, your evaporator coil freezes up, and that's not good for anything in your refrigerator. But it can often keep the freezer section cold. You can easily disassemble the evaporator cover in the back of the freezer and take a look. If it looks like a block of ice, you probably have a defrost issue. An even, thin coat of frost is OK, but lots of ice is a no no.

Maytag refrigerator 6 years old wont cool down in freezer or frig. making a click sound every 5 min or so from the rear of the refrigerator by the compressor

either the compressor or the compressor relay is bad, need amp meter to check amp draw on compressor to verify problem

Fan runs but no cool air on both freezer side and cold side

If you hear the compressor try to start then click off, you probably have a bad compressor or a bad relay. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor is still covered by warranty and will be replaced free of charge. The relay is only covered for a year. With it being a Maytag, I bet it is compressor. There have been a few models with control board problems that have caused this symptom, but that's not likely to be your problem.

Mine kept doing the same thing- the flap between the freezer & the frig is getting stuck. I finally just broke mine off & left it that way. Now the frig is really cold, sometimes things partially freeze- but that is better than going rotten. I now have a section under the water/ice dispense tray bubbling/peeling the white paint off. Mine is 6.5 years old & out of warranty, so I'm searching for a way to repair this problem. Any suggestions?
