Re: refrigerator problem

I have a Magic Chef 3.6 cu. ft. Model#mcbr3605 thats 3 years old and has stopped working. When I plug it in you hear it start then you hear a "click" and it turns off. If you leave it plugged in the compressor gets hot. Can this be fixed or is it trash ? Thanks in advance.

Re: refrigerator problem

Our Magic Chef compact refrigerator (model # MCBR445W1) completely shut down after one year of use. We used a multimeter to check the continuity of the C and L terminals located on the defrost/temperature control unit in both open and closed switch positions. The test verified that there was a short in the defrost/temperature control unit which had to be replaced. The temperature control unit is located behind the defrost/temperature control dial inside the refrigerator. Since the unit was purchased at Home Depot, we called them to order the replacement part. Our local Home Depot store advised us to call 877-650-2121 to order the replacement part. The part cost was $28.20 + $6.00 S&H. As we had taken pictures of the defective part as originally installed and noted the wire connections by color code and terminal position, it was easy to install the replacement part. The fridge is now back in operation at proper cooling levels.

My KTM3900WB fridge/freezer is not freezing and cooling in the fridge. The light goes and can hear the motor is running.


You are either low on freon refrigerant, or your compressor is frozen (usually due to low freon) or your compressor is bad. the motor will cycle on and off even though the compressor is not working. the refrigerator away from the wall and look compressor will be a nerf football sizedand usually black cylinder. It could be very hot or cold/frozen. can also unplug the refrigerator leave it for a few hours and plug it back in if it work you are low on freon. You need a repairman

Squeaky, chirping sound & exterior of fridge on veritical middle panel and freezer side are hot


I think you should try the following:

1. turn off the power.
2. clean/vacuum the lint under and behind the fridge.
3. after a few hours, power on.
If this does not work, you will have to call a repairer unless it is under warranty.
good luck

Hi
Is your fridge compressor motor working and can you hear it turn on and off every hour or so. Not to be confused with the sound coming from the fan inside the fridge.
If the motor is working but neither the fridge or freezer compartment are getting cold, then there may have been a rupture during transport and gas has escaped.

Sounds like a defrost problem, is there ice on the back wall of the freezer? If so the defrost system has failed. The most common repair is a Part# 67004757 defrost thermostat and adaptive defrost board Part# 67004704. Even with the parts in your hand, you will need to de-ice the freezer to replace the thermostat in the freezer section, then unplug unit to replace the adaptive defrost board located in the controls of the refrigerator section. Normally it can take about an hour to complete.
Good Luck

I suggest that you check your defrost heater in the freezer. If this is the problem, then if you empty out the freezer section you will see a solid sheet of ice on the back panel. If the ice is there, then you may need to replace your defrost heater, we had this same problem just a few days ago. Once the heater was replaced, the fridge started cooling about an hour or so.

Zanussi fridge freezer frostfree ZX 57/3 W not working


It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Hope this helps,
Sai.
