SOURCE: freezer stopeed working

Thanks for the answer and the question.
I have changed the defroster clock and the repair shop who sold it told me that is 6 1/2 hours between defrost. the case is that this time is not the correct as it looks because between turning on the DEFROST cycle and then start up again the time in between is not sufficient that the freezer makes the right defrost. and the temperature stays around 32 F.
now if I make a bridge between socket no 1 and 2 the resistor will start and in 20 minutes the water will show up under the freezer and then I connect the timer again and the tep. will go down to 20 F.

I really have no Idea what is wrong any help. I am grateful and happy.

SOURCE: Where can I find a replace thermal overload protector? for the capacitor.

See if there is another part number for that breaker (CET51 ABM).

SOURCE: need replacement thermal overload protector

Check the Radio Shack website. Match the temperature rating of the thermal fuse.

These can't be soldered in -- the heat will blow them -- they are best crimped in.

Not cooling and compressor is hot

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.

Magic Chef Model #MCBR360S just quit working all of a sudden. Any suggestions for solving this problem would be appreciated.

Check the PTC starter component. It is a small ceramic disc inside a plastic housing, attached to the side of the motor. If it is an open state, the motor will not start, If it is shorted, the motor will start, but the overload will trip in just a few seconds. The resistance across the PTC should be around 7 ohms at room temperature. I recently had the same symptoms on my MCBR440. The PTC had some arcing on it. A simple cleaning of the surfaces by scraping with a sharp knife and then reassembling it did the trick.

The resistance across the thermostat in it's running position should be zero. The resistance across the motor overload protector should be zero. The resistance across the motor windings (start, and run) should be just a few ohms. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE POWER cable before attempting to measure the resistance of any of the electrical components. All of the wiring is easily accessible from the rear.

Light comes on when you open door but wine cooler does not come one (does not cool). Checked all circuit breakers.

check thermostat set it to the coldest setting if doesnt come on test stat for power if power jump stat see if starts if still doesnt test for power at compressor if power than check thermo safety for compressor if good than compressor has an internal problem which will probably require a replacement

Magic Chef MCWC30MCG not getting cold?

You need to replace the Ptc unit attached to the compressor. Go to REPAIR CLINIC.COM and order the following part. 1206838 Ptc relay. They also will show you were it is located and how to replace it. Compressor tanks very rarely go bad. It is an $11.00 dollar part
