Refrigerator not cooling at all but compressor is running

I have a Magic Chef Over/Under Refrigerator that has been in storage for a while. When we plugged it back up, it wouldn't cool at all. I've checked everything I know to check. Compressor starts up fine. Condenser fan is good. The only odd thing I noticed is that the evaporator fan only runs when I turn the defrost timer to the defrost mode. The compressor quits and the evaporator fan comes right on. When I keep turning, the evaporator fan turns off and the compressor comes right back on. Should that not be the reverse? In making my way to the evaporator fan I took the bottom freezer panel out. I've noticed that the evaporator tubing/coils aren't the slightest bit cold. Should they be cold without the fan going or does the fan cause them to become cold somehow? I appreciate any help. I'm at a dead end on this one. By the way, my actual model number(in case it matters) is RB23G -3PW but that one wasn't listed.

They'd at least be cool to the touch regardless i think. This seems dead, I had one that would clink alot. Try unplugging it, moving it away from the walla a bit and plugging it in with the freezer all the way to a 0 setting then work it up to full slowly hope this helps!

Magic Chef Refrigerator has stopped cooling adequately.

Check the compressor and the Relay, the relay is located on the compressor itself. you should have full voltage to both of those. If oyu have voltage to the relay and not the compressor then the relay is bad. If you have power to both and the compressor will not kick on then you have a bad compressor and it is best to just replace the fridge

My Magic Chef refrigerator model CTB1722GR is blowing nothing but warm air. Compressor failure???

Good day,
Four possibilities.
1. The condenser cooling fan motor located on the bottom back of the machine between the compressor, and box condenser has failed, and needs replaced. It should be running if the fan in the freezer is running.
2. Loss of refrigerant or a restriction in the system. Testing limited to a qualified tech only.
3. The combo relay overload mounted on the compressor( under a cover) has failed. Most appliance parts houses will be glad to test them for you.
4. Locked compressor. Tech only solution.

PS. If the machine is less than 5 years old, the compressor is under warranty. Contact your selling dealer.

Thank you for using FixYa

My magic chef refridgeator/freezer is no longer

You compressor is clicking trying to start. The insides of the compressor have siezed up meaning that they will not let the motor run and turn them. The motor trying to run and not being able to makes it very hot. Unplug it and let it cool down over night, it may go for a while then, but it is probably terminal. Getting the compressor replaced will cost almost as much as new. Is it possibly under warranty?

Re: Magic Chef

If the compressor is running but the fridge is not cooling, the gas may have leaked out of the system or the compressor is inefficient. The only way to know for sure is to connect a set of gauges to the system. You will need to call in a Refrigeration Mechanic.
