Sounds like unit not getting cold enough to freeze ice. Maybe Blockage or leak in sealed system.

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

you are low on freon or the condenser fan is not working, call for service, this is not a DIY

are u saying u replaced the start relay? and capacitor? I would check the cold control thermostat as if its defective u will get no fan no compressor etc. u can also check the compressor itself by removing the relay and capacitor then using a multi meter to measure the run and start windings for ohms, measure separately then together and the reading u get when together should equal the readings of both separate measurements? give or take 5 percent. u test by connecting the multimeter prongs to the nutual and the run and the nutrul ( center prong) and the start prongs

Believe you need to change the start relay and overload, Sea Breeze

The red button is a circuit breaker and you are resetting it by pushing the button. Some circuit breakers of this type become unreliable and open the circuit randomly, often at some inconvenient time. Still, there could be a valid reason the breaker is popping.

Personally I would say NO only certified tech can do freon addition if needed

I just ran into the same problem with my fridge and was able to fix it. I wrote up this DIY. Sounds like you have the same issue!
