Hi there,

sounds like you may have tripped the house breaker. can you unplug the fridge for about 1 minute. in the meantime, check the breaker and flick it on and off. then plug the fridge back into the wall. if you still have no power, it could be the compressor or the motor. i would have a tech take a look at it.

Hi, my Jenn-Air #JF12089AEPO bottom freezer drawer is beeping consistently and the temperature reading shows 18 degrees Freezer Max Temp. There is also a dry frosty crust on most of my frozen foods. How...


Make sure the freezer drawer and the refrigerator door are shutting properly. Sounds like air is getting in causing the frosty crust. Also be sure to reset the controls back to the original mid-way settings and allow a day or so for it to balance, if you have turned the fresh food compartment down to a lower temp it may cause a similar condition.

The refrigerator and freezer are not cooling on my Jenn-Air JCD2389GES. I have checked the cooling coils and they are dry no frost. I cleaned out the coils in the back. The fan in the lower back runs fine...


Check compressor is running with exact current (Amps). Keep your hand on discharge line on condenser coil to feel warm. If no warm means no gas in the system. If warm and no whistling sound in freezer means system under chocked.
If no gas, find leak an arrest it. Vacuum and do gas charging. If chocked, release all gas, flush out the system, replace filter drier, vacuum and recharge gas. Helpful?

Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

My freezer and refridgerator is not freezing or cooling any longer. 2 days ago it was working then all of a sudden temps went to 90* and all our food was ruined. What could be the problem?


A bad start relay on the compressor.
A bad fan motor on the compressor.
A bad compressor.
A bad freezer fan motor.
A bad defrost timer.
A bad thermostat.
A refrigerant leak in the system.
A bad defrost heater or thermostat.
Check each of these and report back.

Fridge compartments too warm


There are several possibilities on your model. Compressor start components and Adaptive defrost Control.

Jenn-Air JFC2089H Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator. One month ago the water tap stopped working then I noticied that the top doors to refrigerator would not reliably close like they used to. Last...


The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Refrigartor not makinc ice not getting cold


You didn't mention whether you can hear the compressor running or not so we'll have to guess.
There are a couple of things that can go wrong:
- Compressor failed - Cooling fan for coils not running  - Thermostat failed - Refrigerant lost (perhaps from moving it rough?)
