Tip & How-To about Jenn-Air JFC2087HRS Side by Side Refrigerator

New Jenn-air refrigerator, Model #JFC2087HRS, water filters do not work correctly. Modify them.

The new Jenn-air refrigerator, model #JFC2087HRS, water filters (UKF8001) do not work correctly. Water flow is slow. I have called the manufacturer but cannot get any help from them. They insist they work fine. I have tried several of the new ones. The problem seems to be that the small ramps on the new water filters are not tall enough to push the small plungers sufficiently into the water dispenser. I have added a small piece of plastic (glued) to the ramps on the water filter in order for them to work better, but not as good as old ones worked (UKF8001AXX). The next best thing is to buy the old filters if you can find them.

Jen Air Refrigerator (JCD2290HEW) developed problem with having low water flow at water dispenser and water hammer after changing water filter and depressing water dispenser to remove air. Have changed the filter three times with the filter recommended by the manufacturer and have replaced the dual flow valve in back of refrigerator without success. When I remove the filter and install the bypass filter cover, water flow comes out with a good deal of pressure and no water hammer. Going back and re-instaling the water filter causes the problem to resurface.


I understand the correct manufacturers number for the PuriClean II water filter for your refrigerator should be UKF8001 or UKF8001AXX, that you have the correct filter, and you have plenty of water out of the dispenser when the filter is not installed. If all that information is accurate you have 30 pounds or more water pressure (although the minimum is 20 pounds the higher the pressure the better for flow will be), then I would try holding the filter under the faucet to be certain the water flows through the filter without a lot of resistance. If that checks out, I would look for a gasket or some other part from the old filter that is stuck in the filter housing.

we have a jenn-air jfc2087hrs (french door model) and the water pressure from the internal water dispenser is very low. the line has plenty of pressure.


If your ice maker is making full size cubes then it should one of 2 problems.
The water valve on the bottom back of the machine is a dual valve. One side feeds the ice maker, the other side feeds the water supply.
1. The dual water valve. is going bad. The water side is malfunctioning.
The dual valve must be replaced.
2. Your model should have filters for the water dispenser, and need replaced.
Try changing the filters first.

I have a Jenn Air JSD2789GES side by side refrigerator and The water won't work to the ice maker or the water in the door?


Check if the water is on.
check if the water filter connected correctly or the bypass.If the filter is new and the appliance is new you should press the water handle or button till the water comes as the selenoid are open during you push.

You will probably find that if you have a water filter in your model refrigerator that is is clogged. Replace the filter and voila, good flow again. You probably also have small or hollow or chip ice cubes as well, if your filter is clogged.
To save the cost of the filter you would need to check to make sure you are getting strong water flow to the solenoid valve located in the bottom rear of your refrigerator.
I hope I helped, supertechks
