Question about Magic Chef MCBR445S1 Stainless Steel Compact Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a small magic chef fridge that just stopped working. Can seem to get the motor going at all - if just defrosted by itself. Inside is a dial and a red button - we've clicked that a few times to try to get it working again, but it hasn't. Seems like something is trying to start as we'll hear a clicking noise occassionally but nothing starts up again. any thoughts?

You have to turn the knob all the way to zero 0 for the red button to pop back out , leave the red botton popped out and turn the white knob to 5. this will re start the refridgerator. Do not push in the red button as this starts the defrost cycle manually. I am victor

Bottom of fridge not cold


After adjusting the settings switch or dial (usually inside fridge) you wait a couple of hours then see if bottom is colder. Most fridges (older models anyway) have an adjustment procedure. This worked for our Magic Chef purchased about 1994

My magic chef rb193p fridge wont stop running. I replaced the fan motor 4 months ago. The top of the fridge compartment is freezing. Is the defrost timer bad?


I had the same problem. When the evaporator heater stops working, frost will build up until there is no air flow to the refrigerator. This will cause the refrigerator to keep running. Remove everything from the freezer and remove the pan at the bottom and see if there is a frost buildup. .... Bruce

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...


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
