Hi, I have a Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model # MCWC30MCG bought

Resolved Question:


I have a Magic Chef Wine Cooler Model # XXXXX bought in 2004 at Home Depot. We had a lightening strike 2 days ago and since that time the cooler doesn't seeem to run. There's a click every 5-10 minutes but the compressor doesn't seem to come on. Is there some switch that I might be able to replace? I have it up on a work bench in the basement now. If it's the compressor I'm not going to mess with it, but if it's a something simple I'll give it a try. I'm fairly handy with electrical stuff but not with compressors ect.

Thanks, Ian [email protected]

you will need to replace the compressor relay. Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=this just plugs onto the side of the compressor, very easy to change, you can order this @ for around $20.00, this will take care of your problem, thanks Bryan
