Magic Chef Furniture - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


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 suspect the cooler can only actually regulate one of those temperatures and the other one just drags along behind. Perhaps the weather is now warmer and the cooler has to keep the motor on longer to keep cool. The unregulated bottom temperature ends up cooler as a consequence.

Either that or the opposite effect is doing it.

The answer might be to find a 61 degree place in your house to keep the reds.

your unit needs to have a new capacitor possibly. However, it will be next to impossible to find someone who will check it out and get the right one for this unit. Unless the unit is under warranty, I would suggest trying to get the retailer to replace it at no cost to you. If under warranty, the manufacturer should make it right? if both of those avenues are not available, then I would suggest get a new unit.

Fan is wired separately from the cooling unit. you may have a wire corrosion issue. take put the shelves, disassemble the back of the unit from the inside and observe the wiring to see if there are broken or corroded wires/connections. R/R if necessary.

What is the model number? Why do you need the manual? To troubleshoot? To operate or change settings? George

If the overload was open circuit you would not have a hot compressor. The overload activates because the compressor won't start. If there is a capacitor starter, change it. If not let it cool for at least a day then try again. If still no go, replace compressor.

If the compressor is quite hot to the touch, that usually means that there is a problem with the compressor. Could be a short or open winding, but either way you will need a new compressor.

You may have a Freon leak at the compressor. Running this unit at low pressure will only make it leak that much more. Have a technician check it and refill is there is a fill port available.

I found the connectors corroded for both fans. The lower fan connector had one pin that was completely destroyed. I hard wired the wires together as a test and the unit is working perfect. Check the fan connectors by removing the two screws that hold the shelf in place and cafefully slide out fron the cooler. You will have to disconnect several connectors hidden in the right side of the shelf before you can completely remove it. Good Luck.

Do you hear a hum & a click? Most likely the compressor is having trouble starting.

if there are tubes coming out of the compressor on the side that it was laid over on, then give it 24 hours just to be safe, if no tubes plug it in and let it run

Hold the lower zone (right side) temperature up and down arrows until it comes out of standby mode.
