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

SOURCE: E3 error message on Magic Chef wine cooler

Taken from another poster at Home Depot reviews and similiar to what others have found...

The e3/e4 problem is the "connectors" for the fans to the middle separator shelf are put in the pathway of condensation. This causes them to get wet and rust. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to attempt this fix, you take full responsibility for your fridge and the outcome. If you don’t think you can do this…DON’T! Call a licensed electrician. Here is how I resolved my e3 issue: 1) Unplug the fridge
2) Remove all wine and the metal shelves
3) Remove the 2 screws from the middle separator shelf, one on each side on top
4) Remove the 4 screws from the backboard, one in each corner
5) Slide out the middle shelf slowly, on the right hand side towards the front of the shelf there will be 4 connectors you must disconnect before removing the shelf (they are tucked into the shelf). With one hand on the backboard and one on the shelf, slowly take them out together
6) Once you have the backboard and shelf out, you'll see there is a black and white connector, each having a red and black wire on each side
7) These are the fan connectors that are causing the issue. Mine were brown/green and damp (not good for electricity)
8) Using wire cutters, cut as close as possible to the "black" connector on each side to remove it. You will have 4 wires left, 2 from the backboard and two from the shelf (both having a red and black)
9) Take some of the sheath (cover) off of each wire
10) Take the red wire from the backboard and the red wire from the shelf and twist the metal portion together
11) Cover w/ electrical tape!!! Or you will have the same e3/e4 issue
12) Repeat step 10 and 11 for the black wires
13) Move onto the "white" connector and repeat steps 8 - 12
14) Put the backboard and shelf back in the fridge. Be careful not to pull the backboard and shelf apart or your connection may come apart
15) As you slide the shelf in, make sure the wires you disconnected in step 5 are in the "channel" on the side of the shelf or the shelf won't slide properly.
16) Reattached the 4 connectors and then re-attach the backboard and the shelf with the screws
17) Plug the fridge back in
18) Put the metal shelves and wine back in
" Sucks that a $0.10 piece of heatshrink on the connectors could avoid this...? Bad Design.

SOURCE: Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model MCWC44DZ Where can I

On the Magic Chef site you can order parts for the cooler. I took mine out and treid to find them on the web somewhere else and could not locate them anywhere except China and England. I know this isn't true but tried every search option I could think of. They are about $22 plus shipping (HIGH).

Magic Chef MCWC52B not running very long


by the age of it, I would replce it. Not worth it to take a chance with wine and if it holds expensive wine then I rest my case.

The light may be old, and need repairing, I would try contacting somebody local rather than buying a new one.

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?

I have a similar magic chef wine fridge, and have had the same loud popping noise every 15-20 minutes. Its model # MCWC52B. I have had 2 different repair people out to fix, and both have said call Magic...


I have practiced this tactic for years and it has never failed. Call Magic Chef and ask to speak to a management member that is in charge of repair issues. Explain to them the issue. Tell them that you don't want a repair tech any more, you would like them to ship you a comparable unit and replace the one that you have. They can come out with the new unit and take back the broken unit and repair it in their shop, trial and error and instruct their techs as how to repair these in the future. If they won't do that, ask to speak to their supervisor and keep going up the food chain. They will cooperate, trust me. Let us know how that works for you. Be frustrated and firm.

MCWC52B wine cooler stopped cooling, compressor hot


Turn it off and place a small electric fan by compressor to cool it down.
When you turn it back on, see if you hear a clicking noise. This would indicate starting components need checking.

I have a magic chef wine cooler model mcwc16mcg justs keeping clicking not cold anymore , can this be fixed


A clicking sound every few minutes usually means the compressor is going off on overload when trying to start. This could mean the start parts are bad, or the compressor went bad.
