I hope this is going to docjoh again! Regarding our unit that isn't giving us any water, we checked the tube to see if it was frozen and it doesn't appear to be. We then pulled out the unit, unclamped the water line to see if water was getting to it. Some ugly brown water came out. Could the filter be too dirty and triggered the water off for some reason.? I know that is doubtful, but we haven't changed the filter for a while. There is no light on suggesting that though.
Could the motor be out? No ice is making either. Maytag wants $89 to come out and diagnosis this and with a handy husband, we just want to check everything we can before we spend the money.

I've got the same problem. After installing a replacement drip pan (W1019913) and disconnecting the thermistor per the enclosed instructions, the problem returned within two months. I just called Jenn-Air customer service and was told that there is a new design for the drip pan this is only available through Jenn-Air, and not through distributors. Therefore the part I purchased in November through a distributor was the old design (even though it was dated 1/27/11). The Jenn-Air rep agreed to have a tech install the new design under warranty, even though I purchased the unit almost 5 years ago. I'm hopeful that this will correct the problem. If you still want instructions on how to remove the drip pan, let me know. But I would return the part you've got and ask Jenn-Air do it for free.
I bought the same JFC2290 model and it says "Auto defrost". Mine is only 10 months old and it starts having exactly same problem already. Water leaks and I have to clean my hardwood floor twice a week. I will never own Jen junk again!
Before it started tripping the circuit breaker what was your refrigerator doing that was not normal? Usually, before something fails massively it will give you hints it is coming. Did your ice maker or lights stop working? Has the compressor been running an excessively long time?
What trips a breaker is the unit drawing more current that what the breaker is listed at. So something in the unit has shorted to cause this to happen. Although the first thing we check in a situation like this is the compressor circuit it isn't always the cause.
You are going to have to get the drain good and clean. Take a turkey baser and force hot water down the drain until water flows freely. Once water is flowing freely mix water and baking soda and pour it down the drain. I hope this helps.
Remove the kick plate at the bottom, then you will see the head of a bolt this raises and lowers the wheels, I'm assuming your wheels are up turn bolt clockwise. Thier will be a bolt on each side. The wheels are contained inside of a sheetmetal housing. Once the wheels are down you will be able to roll it back and forth. Go to www.appliancehelponline.com enter your model # and it will bring up a diagram of your unit. The diagram needed is the one for the cabinet. Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due
to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses,
knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) &
clogged drain pump & filter.
Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump
isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s
First check whether the drain is
not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for
blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced
recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the
drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not
been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry
vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything
else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you
have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then
it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking down the vent instead of the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck!
