Question about Jenn-Air Refrigerators
Jenn Air JCB2282H: The compressor seems to be buzzing, but everything is working fine with both sides of the unit. No clicking when it starts or stops. The noise just fades out after 20-30 seconds, or stops if I give the unit a shove. Cleaned out the coils and fan. Compressor and lines around it seem fairly hot. With the back open I can silence the buzzing by putting a hand on the compressor.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Power to compressor must be off (about 5 minutes) before a restart should be tried. Some of these relays are thermal and must cool down before power is reapplied.

sounds like your compressor is going bad, getting to hot , pull the unit from the wall and cleanall vents under and behind rear cover, make sure fan is running ot cool of the compressor, youll have 5 yr coverage on your compressor if needing repaired

I can help , It was the relay , they can blow when they experience a hard start , by replacing it and having the same issue this means the compressor is locked up , they sell a booster for this that can sometimes free the compressor up , its called an rco410 , this part will be your only chance to get your compressor going again. let me know if you have any other questions and tell me how it works out.

Tips for a great answer:
Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
