I had the same problem with an upright and so I bought a piercing valve and charged the compressor with 134R and has been working great since.

I have a Magic Chef freezer built older than 20 years. 15.2 cu. ft. pt. no. 101403-1


Hello Darrell;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

Why do you think your Magic Chef is still working after 20 years? Your unit was manufactured with reliable cast steel components.
Do you want to purchase a new unit with more efficiency with components manufactured with plastic and cast ceramic. If you do decide to purchase a more efficient unit, do not discard your well build Magic Chef. When the new unit fails after 5 years, you will always have the older well built unit.

Magic chef freezer model mcuf88w won't freeze


When you thawed it, did you remove ice from it using a metal object. That may have damaged the coils when would allow freon to leak out. This is too coincidental to be a problem itself with the compressor. The t'stat might be the problem. Try turning it off at the t'stat for a few minutes, then turn back on to the normal setting. Keep door closed for 30 minutes and check the inside and see if the walls are freezing. If not, you may have a compressor problem, or t'stat, or relay switch problem.

I have a small magic chef freezer that opens from the top. I has about 3 or 4 cu. ft. of freezer space. Lately a buzzer has been going off every 15 or 20 minutes. It buzzes for about 5-10 seconds and then...


With the time as the compressor gets old the buzzing will increased, its not a bid deal, just set the thermostat to 1 during the winter, saves you energy and give the compressor more time to rest.

Magic chef freezer not working unless on "fast freeze"


Fast freeze is overriding your thermostat so the freezer compressor works all the time.This will kill your compressor.Try change thermostat.Jan
