# I have a Magic Chef Refrigerator Freezer Model MCBR1020W. It is a small 10 cubic capacity for my basement. It is about 18 months old. The freezer works great but the refrigerator compartment never gets to a cold temperature no matter how high I turn the dial.

Is this a two door refrigerator?
If it is then their is an air duct that allows some air from the freezer to cool the fridge section.
Three things to look for;
Is the air duct blocked
Is the fan blowing air
is the freezer coil frozen over.
Try manually defrosting the fridge. If that helps then you have an auto defrost problem. A technician can help you there

Hi,
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Good luck!

### 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.

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.

### The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not

I have the same one. It was outside in the garage-brand new-had that same problem. We taped foam insulation on sides and parts of the back-that worked! We have since moved and now it is in the climate controlled basement and works fine w/o duct tape! get what you pay for huh?!
