Hello: We have just moved into a home and there is a Magic Chef bar froidge (possible for wine). Model# MCBC58DSTF. The temperature fluctuates from 45 - 48 degrees F. Is it possible to reduce the...

There should be a control that allows you to make adjustments. If you cannot find a control I suggest going on line to Magic Chef, seek technical help directly from consumer services or technical services. There you may find a manual. Make certain you have all the information available, such as Model Number and other data.

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.

Loud buzzing noise on a Magic Chef compact refrigerator help!

Disconnect power from unit. Remove the cover at the bottom, rear. Examine all refrigerant tubing for contact with other tubing or other surface. Carefully adjust the tubing to prevent contact vibration.

Whats the push in button in the center of temp. conrtol knob, on the dorm size model?

On this model, the push button in the center of the temperature control is for starting a manual defrost cycle.

If you see ice building up on the evaporator (the freezer section), you just push the button and the fridge will stop the cooling cycle and initiate a defrost cycle to melt the ice.

The unit will automatically start cooling after the pre-determined defrost cycle time has elapsed.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Tried to lower temp...but it raised instead...can't figure it out

My daughter has an MCBR445w1, probably a similar size dorm refrigerator. It has died. I brought it home tonight to try and get it repaired. The red button in the center of the thermostat dial defrosts the unit. That's why you got the flood. On her unit, 1 is the warmest, 7 is the coldest. I'd turn it to 7 and see what happens. Keep dust off the coils if they are exposed.

I have a feeling these units are just bad refrigerators, but I will try and get hers running. Good luck with yours.
