Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

How cold should the refrigerator be? It seems to be too warm and food is spoiling. So we are wondering what temp that the refrigerator part should be. The freezer seems to be working fine.


Answers :

38 to 42 degrees F The problem with the defrost will need to be fixed and you can check a few things that may save you the cost of someone coming out. Unplug and remove the rear panel in back of the freezer. Defrost with a hair dryer and try to get as much ice out as possible so you can have a look at the defrost heater. Yours is made with a glass tube on the outside of the heating element and if burned out you need to replace both it and the defrost thermostat that it goes through. Hopefully you will try to use my assistance and we can resolve this quickly. Now if you do not see a problem with the defrost heater let me know. Your model has a mother control board and we may need to have a look at it also. Let me know, Thank You Sea Breeze

I have a Magic Chef refrigerator in my apartment that is approximately 11 years old. It has worked fine until apprx a year or so ago when it became louder and was emmiting more heat. We cleaned the coils and that seemed to help with the heat. But it is still making very loud popping and hissing sounds and (more bothersome to me) it makes a loud, sustained humming / motor sound for about 10-15 min. on and off. It seems that the source of the noise is in the freezer part, not the lower fridge part
