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.

Water is building up on bottom of freezer and leaking out


could be two reasons for this. Its possible the fridge went into defrost mode and didn't come out. Or the drain hole under the evaporator is blocked.

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)

Chipping away ice in magic chef freezer section i punctured freon line in freezer panel can refridge still get cold


No, the fridge will not get cold any more. The coolant goes to the coils in the freezer. The fridge takes a small amount of cold air from the freezer to lower its temperature.

I am sorry to say that unless you can find a way to repair the puncture and refill the system with freon, you are going to have to buy another refrigerator.
