Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Magic Chef Wine Refrigerator. 

I bleieve what you are hearing is part of the normal operatirng sounds.  Freon will make a popping noise during circulation. 

The unit also has an automatic defrost system that might sizzle and pop during the defrost cycle. 

I am surprised you hear the noises all the way upstairs but it is possible. 

Since the unit is cooling properly I suspect the noise you hear are normal operating noises.

Fred, I wish you could see and hear the refrigerator up front and personal and at that point I think you would change your opinion. I have had this refrigerator for several years and if these noises were "normal" I would have noticed years ago and perhaps have discarded it. It is loud, much like the sound of an oil can. Can you maybe think on this one a bit and perhaps come up with another idea? Thanks in advance for your help. Sam

Just didn't want to overlook the normal popping noises. I agree the sounds as described seem excessive but since it is not a fan noise the sealed system would be the other possible source of the noise and that is not an economical problem to have. An internal compressor noise might be the guilty part but that would not be an economical repair to make.

Sam, Fan noises and compressor noises would be the usual suspects. One idea would be to take a video with sound and post it to you tube and then send me the link and I can take a listen.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about this error code. This error code indicates a problem with the lower zone fan motor. This can be a motor failure or board. A voltage check will need to be made to see if there is 12vdc to the motor. If the voltage is there to the motor, then the motor will need to be replaced. If there is no voltage and the wire connections are ok, the board will need to be replaced.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

wine cooler

A:

Wine coolers with problems would make you worry about the stability of the contents. One place you can check for errors is the owner's manual. I found and attached the manual for your model below. I also found an article how cooling temperatures can affect the wine. I attached the links below. Hope this helps.

I found the manual too, and am aware of the temperature requirements. My problem is that the temperature settings cannot be changed; the unit will not unlock and there is an error message on the lower cooling level. Thanks for your input.

I can understand your concern about this error code. I see that your touch pads are locked and cannot be changed. This will be due to the error code being displayed. It does indicate a problem with the fan in the lower cooling zone. The problem will need to be corrected for the pads to work. This can be a problem with the board, the motor or a poor electrical connection. Sometimes it can be corrected by resetting the board. Disconnect power to the unit for 30 seconds and then reconnect it. If the error code returns and the pads still won't work, the electrical connection at the motor will need to be checked. If the connection is ok, then a voltage check will need to be made, to determine if the board or the motor has failed. The motor should have 12vdc to it. I'm attaching a picture with instructions to access the motors. However, I strongly recommend having a technician make these checks and repair. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Life.
