Default MagicChef fridge not cooling
Model Number: mcbr445b1   Brand: -brand-   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi.

I have a Magic chef mcbr445b1 refrigerator.

The other day I opened the door and the beverages were warm and there was no cold air. I unplugged the unit ad waited 20 minutes, plugged it back in, and set the dial to 7. I waited 15 minutes and the fridge did not cool down.

I checked the back and the compressor (# NSA30LACG) is warm See attached.

I am not that savvy when it comes to electrical items. I am guessing the compressor is ok?
I am not sure what the next step is.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

Looks like this a small 4.4 cu. ft. compact refrigerator.It's not expensive (less than $200) and I believe it's not worth any repair.

It cost about $180.

What could be the issue?


Wouldn't the parts be lest costly than a new one if I can figure out the issue and do it myself?

Check the compressor on touch. If it's working, it should vibrate.

Sounds like there is something wrong with the compressor. If it's right then it's very expensive.
