You have a defrost problem. There are three things that are involved with the defrost cycle. There is the defrost timer, which depending on your model is either mechanical (easy to test) or is an electrical board. These are usually placed in near the controls. Second is the heater. The last is the Defrost BiMetal. This is the most common thing to go. The Heater and BiMetal are located on the evaporator behind a panel in the freezer section. With a complete model number I can give you more detailed instructions on how to check each part.

Why are only drawers in fridge cold & not making ice?


Contact a professional. Sounds like either your damper door is not operating correctly and not letting enough cool air from the freezer enter, or there is an air leak that is making ice form .

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).

The refrigerator is not cooling either the freezer or the fridge I dont know what to do it stays hot.


. 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. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the overload protector does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

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

Feezer does not make ice. there is cold water. Installed new filter


Check the temp inside the freezer with a thermometer. It should be between -10 and 0 degrees. The ice maker has a thermostat that cuts it off once the temp gets above 5 to 8 degrees. (According to the model) If your freezer is warm, check the inside back panel of the freezer. If it has ice or frost on it you have a defrost problem. This will have to be repaired before the ice maker will work. If you have ice or frost, your freezer will also continue to warm up until your fresh food section gets real warm.

New Frigidaire side by side running constantly and still warm


If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.
