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.

The unit will draw between 6 and 12 amps on start up and running it should use less than 1.6 amps. The start up amps will increase with age. Funny how that works the same for people as it does for machines. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate. Mike

I had the same problem. I fixed the problem by replacing the main cooling fan that is mounted over the electrothermal cooling unit.. Fan can be ordered from RepairClinic.com.

Putting another thermostat would not help it be cooler it actually stop it from functioning all together if it's not recommended by the manufacturer

HH error code? on magic chef mcbc580dbt


I, too, have just seen (late June 2013) the "HH" code on my Magic Chef wine cooler (and it is running too cold and I can't reset the temperature). Have you found a solution since your posting of about 1 year ago?

Magic Chef refrigerator is only cooling to 52 degrees


Typically, the fridge gets its cool air from the freezer via a vent. There's something blocking that vent. If it's nothing obvious (e.g. plastic bag) on either side, then it's possible it could be ice build up inside the vent. Put your perishables in a cooler and unplug the fridge for 12-24 hours to allow it to melt. If there's still a blockage, the vent will have to be dismantled to see what's wrong.

The bottom part doesn't cool things. only gets 66/67 degrees Fahrenheit.


Usually when this happens it is either a evaporator fan or a defrost problem. Check that the fan in the back of the freezer is running. Or if there is frost on the back of the freezer. Frost indicates a defrosting problem.

Not cooling


From my earlier post, our compact Magic Chef 'frig was not running at all.  It still looks perfect, so decided to check on the repair.  It turned out to be the "starter switch," I think is what the switch was called.  The repairman said this is a very common problem, so he had the switch we needed in his truck.  It was repaired quickly and is running great.  
Cost was about $140, part plus labor.  A replacement would have been only a few dollars more, but would take more time and effort.  FYI, the compressor on these Magic Chef refrigerators has a 5-yr warranty.
Hope that helps someone. Jaci
