Chest freezer not working. Light inside chest freezer comes on but green power light doesn't turn on and freezer makes no sound. What could be the problem.


Could be your thermostat is bad and not calling for the compressor to come on. If you are able see if there is power getting to the compressor. If not then back track to where you are loosing power (thermostat) etc.

No check your settings. You may try to unplug it for about a minute and then restart. If that doesn't work, call the mfr. they should help since it is new.

Have magic chef mccf5wbx freezer compressor runs but shuts off in 15 seconds


Check condensor not clogged up, fan working etc. If all ok, try new capacitor and relay. If all else fails, replace freezer (compressor replacement is costly)

My Magic Chef chest freezer stopped cooling, slowly, over two weeks. I emptied, unplugged, defrosted, cleaned coils, and powered up again. Red light is on, won't cool. Guessing freon or compressor...


Sounds like slow Freon leak. You might get an estimate over the phone before calling a technician, but I would think a 3-year old box is worth repairing. If the estimate is close to the replacement cost, that might not be the case.

My Magic Chef 5.5 cubic chest freezer with manual defrost, just quit working. It was a year old this March and it stopped working this July. The power light is on, but run light is not. We unplugged for 5...


Feel compressor to see if running and warm. If not, most likely thermostat control is bad. If it is running, determine if it runs continuously or if it's clicking on and off every couple minutes. If clicking on and off, replace overload and relay that plugs into side of compressor. If running continuously, there is probably a freon leak on blockage. Replace freezer in latter scenario
