Question about Jenn-Air JCD2290HES Side by Side Refrigerator
I have an 8 year old Jenn Air JCD2389 fridge that is not cold on fridge side. I cheched for the frezzer fan and for frost/blockage on the freezer side but everything looks good there. For a few months I heard what sounded like a fan blade that was a little off kilter on the fridge side and now there is no cold air blowing from the vent on the top of the fridge interior. Any reccomendations on the cause and the solution?
You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to
in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal
of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is
plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air
circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in
this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer
compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or
the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost
drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting
plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also
by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then
sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this
until I get the water to go down the drain tube.
Try it and let me know!
