Had trouble finding a diagram with this model # but most common defrost problems are bad defrost thermostat, timer/control board, or a little more rare is the defrost heater.

it is not normal . the old saying ( frost clear .) it say's something right .. so you have a defrost problem with this unit look for heater system / defrost terminator / and the timer or what most use is adative defrost control / a pc board . that knowes what is going on .. mm hope this helps ..

Sorry to inform you, but the compressor is out, the reason it kicks off is because the motor is trying to turn the compressor but the compressor is tied up and the motor heats up and shuts down. not cost effective to replace the compressor.

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.


After some work online...I found this advertisement buried among a bunch of other ads:
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.

Why won't my magic chef model rb171a refrigerator stay cold?


I recently had the same problem on a Westinghouse fridge freezer. There was a vent bringing cold air from the freezer to the fridge. This vent was in the freezer low down behind the evaporator coil. It had become blocked when a piece of insulation had moved over several years. Might be worth checking.

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

Our model is MCBR 415S. The top freezer acts as


You most likely have a bad thermostat control or a bad defrost timer.
Locate the defrost timer, probably inside the temp control panel.Defrost cycles should last 30 minutes then resume freezing.
Manually turn the timer control a 1/4 turn and see if it starts.
If so, replace the defrost control.

It could also be a bad temp control.
If the timer adjustment does not start the fridge. Tap the temp control. It may have stuck contacts.
