Question about Jenn-Air Pro-Style JFC2089H French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

My freezer Approx. 3 weeks ago crystals of ice starting forming in my freezer. Everytime I clean them out they come back. My door seems to be shut all the way. It is only about 1.5-2 years old, we just moved into the home in July so we have no manuals on it. IS there something we can do or do we need a repair man for a service call. You may email me at egarrelts@garreltsplumbing.com or call me at 815-790-8785

The door seal gasket may have cuts or holes in it allowing a small amount of air with moisture to creep into it which gets frozen in the ice compartment.

SOURCE: JCD2389DES Water Leak Problem

Once I saw that the drain tube went up over the coil before draining into the evaporator pan I decided to buy a small piece of flexible plastic tubing and re-route the tube so the water could freely flow down hill. It's been over two months with no additional problems. I can assume that since the water drains freely it doesn't stay trapped in the elbow freeze and the cause the collector tray to ultimately overflow.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Making Noise

I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:

1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.

2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below

3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container

4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly

Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.

SOURCE: Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer

Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

Freezer is running constantly. ice crystals formed on outside of packaged foods. food is still frozen.


the door was left open,if you find frozen water droplets on the food packages or ice crystals it forms from the warm air coming in,make sure all the packages are pushed in and not hitting the door and you can tilt the fridge back a little so the door will close with a slight push.also check the ice shout door and make sure no air is leaking through it,you'll know you'll see all ice around it.you can check the condenser coil and condenser fan to see if it needs to be vacuumed,the machine will run longer if the coil is clogged with dust or if the fan isn't blowing,the coil should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months.hope this helps but it sounds like the freezer door was left open.

Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting


My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!

6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.

REFRIG SIDE NOT COOLING


The sweating inside is from the door not making a proper seal, and you are getting condensation build-up. The door not shutting is not as unusual as you may think. First check the gasket condition, a new one may not be a bad idea. On these refers with the revisable doors, try removing the freezer door and then loosening the fridge door hinges and adjusting the mounts. Its a trial and error procedure so don't get frustrated. Another trick is to wad up a wash cloth into a ball and wedging it into the door gap after you open it on the hinge side, then close the door. You should have some tension, but not too much. This bends the door a little. If you can get the door to make a good seal it should solve the other problems with the temperature. If not, you are going in the right direction by locating and cleaning the vents. All the cool air in the fridge comes from the freezer.

Freezer Drawer Stuck


Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
