Refrigerator constantly runs


Hi folks, I have a Magic Chef Refrigerator that never shuts off. I cleaned the coils and fan a few weeks ago and noticed since then it never shuts off.Could the temperature switch have gone? It's a model# GT19Y8FW .

Make sure your door gasket is sealing off / door closing all the way . Turn the t.stat to the lowest setting & see it it will turn off

Make sure the defrost heater and control are working properly. If it is broken, evaporator air flow will be obstructed and prevent proper cooling.

If it is stuck on, it will try to battle eachother out with compressor.

1. Simply find the knob that operates the timer and turn it until you hear the click. 2. Wait 22 minutes. 3. Check to insure that your refrigerator parts are working properly and the unit has come out of defrost mode and is back to normal operations. If your refrigerator parts are not in working order, and the machine is not out of the defrost cycle, you have a defective defrost timer which needs to be replaced.
