Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NeedABetterFridge Shocked; Dead After 4 Weeks.
I'm shocked. I'm a loyal HD customer and am always happy with their products. I read reviews for days on the wine coolers out there and yes, I saw that this had some bad reviews, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt knowing any product will have some poor reviews no matter what. Unfortunately, this is the worst purchase and my biggest regret. It worked like a champ for 3 weeks. By week 4, the temperature that was set at 36 couldn't get below the 40s. I checked it each day, and each day it was one degree warmer. Now, at week 6, I could hear it from another floor in my house sounding like a jet engine. I unplugged it for a few minutes, turned it back on, and what sounds like a motor is completed shot. I either get the sound of a jet engine and no cool air, or a dead fridge. I can't express my disappointment. What a hassle now to have to empty it, carry it up stairs, load it in a car, return this to HD. This is a terrible product. How is it possible that this fridge dies for almost every purchaser?! Home Depot, you can do better than this. I'd truly appreciate someone contacting me to make this right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LukeWarmdrinks One of the worst products I have ever bought!
Bought the unit in March of 2015 during a renovation. Worked fine for a few weeks, then one zone would not hold the correct temperature. Magic Chef sent someone out to service the unit and it worked again for a few weeks before the same issue came back up. Waiting for my second service visit now. Magic Chef said they will not replace until it fails three times. BTW, their service center is so backed up that it is almost a month before they can get someone out to look at it.
I ignored a lot of the bad reviews and bought this unit but I am paying the price now. For the sake of all of your delicious beverages that deserve to be chilled, please please please DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StephanieS Don't buy this refrierator
We bought two of these refrigerators for our basement. Both have needed to have the motors replaced after less than 6 months of use -- and one unit has broken twice!! The repair service said this happens all the time with the Magic Chef dual zone centers. Magic Chef would not stand behind their product when I asked to swap for a single zone -- terrible customer service. Home Depot however, provided excellent customer service and allowed us to make a 100% refund after 6 months. I will definitely continue to shop at Home Depot and will never purchase another Magic Chef product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barbifi new wine fridge
We purchased this wine and beverage cooler to use in our kitchen remodel. We were looking for an under counter model that offered two zones and shelves for soft drink as well as for wine. This unit is good looking, feels sturdy and the price compares favorably with other options. We have only been using it for a few days but so far it is quiet and comes to temperature quickly after we open it and add more beverages. It was a bit tricky to configure, our champagne bottles don't fit well, and we wish we could reverse the door, but otherwise we are quite happy with it. Very well packed for shipping. We picked it up at the store and the process was very convenient.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GDR69 Do not buy! Careful
My unit did not work at all right out of the box (poor quality inspection). Magic Chef claims they need a part but it is back ordered. I have been waiting for the part for 2 months already, and was told they have no idea when they will get it. NO SPARE PARTS FOR NEW UNITS???? Amazing! I was offered a refund, but I bought the unit on sale and with a discount. I will never be able to buy the same unit with the refund offered. I asked for a new unit and was told "we don't do that". Who is going to pay to have this unit removed from my house, returned and have a new one installed? Certainly not Magic Chef. Stay away from this company's products and lack of service and responsibility. They do not stand by their products. Customers be aware!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nomish Very nice under counter beverage cooler in our remodeled kitchen
I purchased this Magic Chef 24" wide cooler (or whatever model was available at the time) in June 2013 for $500. I see it now listed for $400, but I'm OK with that. It has been great. We installed it under out counter as part of a major kitchen and main living floor upgrade for an upper middle class home in the burbs. The dual zone works great, the space is fine, and I can easily slide it in and out of the space my contractor built -- yet it looks like a permanent fixture. There is a slight "hum" sound when you are within 5' of the unit, but nothing that would cause a complaint. It gets a lot of "ooh" and "ahh" comments from people that come into our home. The only item I could complain about is the plastic housing that covers the blue lamp inside the roof -- it broke and the only way I can remedy the light is to use a small piece of masking tape to replace one of the two screws that holds the housing in place -- it looks OK, just a minor quibble. Overall, if you are looking for a 24" wine/beverage cooler and you aren't a professional sports athlete making millions per year - get this one. I searched about 20 models and this one won my vote. It beat out anything under a grand. Still does.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CJWC Home depot had the best price!!!
After looking on line for several weeks for a replacement beverage center for my home, I found the Magic Chef dual temperature wine/beverage center on sale at Home Depot. I love the fact that it maintains two compartments at different temperatures. The unit fit in the prepared space under my counter. The center works great and is quiet. I really like the fact the it came with a lot of different options to place bottles or cans in different areas of the beverage center. It is a great product that is very quiet when running.

Fit right under the counter and looks ggreat in bar area. Keeps constant 39 degrees. Good value for a dual temp control. Only complaint would be shelf heights, need to put beer bottles on side to get a lot in. Cans fit great.
