Magic Chef Mini-Fridge not Working, Model # MCBR360S

My 10yr old son just rescued a Magic Chef mini-fridge from his friend's front yard trash pile. We plugged it in and nothing happens. Any advice on how to troubleshoot the problem? We are hoping its something as simple as a fuse, or it may find itself in our trash pile next month!!

Any advice welcome.

Unplug and look for the thermostat control. Try jumping the thermostat wires together. If it runs then replace the thermostat. Also feel the compressor to see if running, they run very silently. Thanks, Sea Breeze

What could be the problem with my Magic Chef mini fridge model number MCBR465S. It comes on when I plug it in but not cool at all, and the compressor hot, could I trouble shoot and how,freon? Thx


If the compressor is actually running and there is no refrigeration, I would suggest it has a gas leak and that's why it isn't cooling. Depending on what type of refrigerant is in it, it may not be worth repairing as its only a small bar fridge? Check the rating plate to see if its R12 (Older fridges) or R134A . If the unit is less than 5 years old, it may be operating on R32 or R600 (Butane refrigerant gases) If its only a couple of years old, it may still be under Manufacturer warranty. Most fridges carry a 2 year warranty on everything and up to 5 years parts warranty on what is known as the "Sealed system"

I have Model No. MCBR360S Mini Refrigerator- It Quit working - The compressor was pretty warm. I keep hearing a Click.


That clicking sound is the compressor trying to start, if it is less than a year old just call magic chef and they will replace the unit, if not the cost of a sealed system repair may make it not worth reairing

My Magic Chef mini fridge temperature trouble


That can be very difficult to do with a mini refrigerator. There is just not enough separation between the freezer and the refrigerator.

You will likely just have to find a compromise setting and accept the results.

Fridge won't start, tries to but clicks off after a few seconds


compressor is broken if you are under warranty you can get it replaced. if not you should buy another one cause compressors are expensive to replace. costs about the price of a new refrigerator. you can try getting a used one from classifieds or craigslist.com
