Question about Magic Chef MCBR440 Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hole in freezer

I was trying to chisel off all the ice on in the freezer (Magic Chef 3.6 Cu. ft, stainless steel look), and I accidentally punctured a small hole in it. Of course, all of the refrigerant gas leaked out. Now, of course, the refrigerator won't cool at all. Is there any way to repair this, or am I going to have to just purchase another one? Thanks!

    I also punctured my cooling plate in the freezer section and all the gas leaked out. I can't find anyone that sells this part. Please let me know if you know where I can find it. Also, if I seal it, how can I replace the refigerant?
    Thanks for any help

There is a way using a special resin but it is not a reliable repair and you will then need special gear to regas

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.

I have a Magic Chef freezer built older than 20 years. 15.2 cu. ft. pt. no. 101403-1


Hello Darrell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

Why do you think your Magic Chef is still working after 20 years? Your unit was manufactured with reliable cast steel components.
Do you want to purchase a new unit with more efficiency with components manufactured with plastic and cast ceramic. If you do decide to purchase a more efficient unit, do not discard your well build Magic Chef. When the new unit fails after 5 years, you will always have the older well built unit.

Magic chef freezer temperature indicator light on, not usually on?


Is it a red light? If so it's not reaching temperature (the alarm is about -12c) If it's a yellow light, you've accidentally switched on "fast freeze". If it's a green light it's just the power supply light.

GE GFSL6KEXLS Stainless Steel (2585 cu ft) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator Problem: Freezer handle is all stainless steel is loose. How can I tighten it? I looks like I would have to go through...


look for a small hole on one side of the handle. There should be a set screw there you can tighten. (the handle attaches to a ball shaped peg under the handle, and does not attach from the inside of the door)
