Question about Jenn-Air Jenn Air 22 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Counter depth Refrigerator, JCD2290HE

Open Question

Refrigerator Compartment The refrigerator compartment has no cold airflow comming in from freezer section. I have taken apart control panel to check bellows control and freezer temp control for loose/broken connection. None found. Cleaned and checked rear of unit, comppressor etc. looks OK. Checked Freezer some frost on evaporator. Freezer working. Took out all perishables from refrig, to prevent spoilage (10/27/08). Woke up this morning (10/28/08) to find refrig recieving cold air from freezer. Could active defrost part in refrig compartment be going bad? This has been going on for about a week.

Check for a device called a damper in the refrigerator compartment. It controls how much cold air from the freezer is sent to the refrigerator. In my recent experience with a bad damper in a GE side by side, the damper door broke and the refrigerator got too cold. The damper door could be broken or the motor failed and left the door closed. If this happens, the refrigerator compartment will not get enough cold air from the freezer and run warmer than normal. Check the appliance parts web sites for a breakdown of you model. You may find it's a major disassembly to get to the control. What I did was remove the bad part and control the airflow from the freezer with a partial blockage until I got a new part and the time to repair it.

The freezer is cold but the lower section is warm.


If your freezer section has a knob that says "Colder" then set it to the left instead of
to "Colder"
Many people mistake this for a cold control but it only closes off airflow to
the lower compartment from the freezer section.
The freezer supplies cold air to the lower compartment. You may also want to see if the vent to the lower compartment is
blocked with ice. (The vent duct is the plastic duct in the freezer compartment).
hope this helps.

Bottom not cool at all


Greetings,
The first thing to check is are all the fans running? there is one in the freezer and usually one in the rear compressor compartment...the next thing to check if fans are operating is: remove rear freezer panel and see if ice or frost is blocking the air thru the freezer coil...if there is ice blocking the airflow. defrost the coil using a hair dryer.. the fresh food section gets cold air from the freezer..its blown over into top of refrigeration via a fan...it goes thru a baffle into refrigerator...this baffle sometimes will not open...This is one place you check for air coming into refrigerator...so, check here also before you take it apart. there should be a noticable amount of airflow....if not, remove the cover and work a small wooden dowel or skewer into the slot and open the vent..this will allow air to go into refrig section...the skewer can be left in there to keep it working if this is it...getting back to a frosted evap...if it is froze up..there is a derfost problem and defrosting will give you temp service until you can get it repaired......Bruce Denton

Refrigerator less than two months old. Freezer side fine refrigerator side stopped working altogether. All food ruined. Who should I contact. purchased from Home Depot.


This is a very common issue, If the freezer compartment is cold and making ice the
problem is simply airflow from the freezer into the refrigerated section.
Typically when one senses the refrigerator is warm they max out the settings
on both dials the thermostat with its 1-10 settings as well as off for the compressor.
This controls the compressor and temperature.
The additional setting or dial is for colder freezer or refrigerator as well , However
it simply opens or closes a flapper door between the freezer and refrigerator boxes.
When that dial or setting is maxed , it closes and makes the freezer colder, yet leaves the refrigerated section starved for sufficient airflow to maintain a cold box in the refrigerated section.
Just set the dial that does not turn the compressor off to the middle setting.
One can leave the thermostat that does control the compressor in the max setting , just not the colder freezer setting, If you notice colder isnt colder refrigerator, Its actually colder freezer, A common issue found on 25% of all refrigerator calls a simple setting adjustment.
Its easy to think that maxing out the settings makes for a colder refrigerator, it doesnt, it makes a colder freezer and warm rerigeration section.
If a freezer is making ice, theres nothing wrong with the unit other than airflow setting.

My GE TFX30PP is constantly running and doesn't turn off. The freezer is very cold but the frig side isn't cold enough. A repair guy put in a new "cold contol" sensor but it didn't help.

I would also clesan the condenser coils off.

Left door open while cleaning out refrigerator and top unit shut off freezer is still on what should I do


The fresh food compartment is cooled by air being blown from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment.

There is a panel, or door if you will, that separates the freezer and fresh food compartments. The freezer temp control determines how much cold air is allowed to escape into the fresh food compartment by opening or closing this panel.

In your case, the door must be stuck all the way open, allowing all the cold air to be diverted into the fresh food compartment. The compressor cycle is controlled by the thermostat in the fresh food compartment and thus 'short cycles' because the fresh food compartment acheives normal temperature while the freezer is relativel warm.

If the panel is restricted from moving (stuck in the extreme open position, for example), the fresh food compartment will get VERY cold while the freezer will be warm.

Try thoroughly defrosting the refrigerator. Possibly an accumulation of ice is preventing the panel from moving and/or is diverting all the cold air from the freezer into the fresh food compartment. It's a free fix and may solve your problem altogether.

If that doesn't help, or helps only temporarily, you may have a problem with panel/door/flap itself or the linkage that connects it to the control mechanism. Unless you're skilled in appliance repair, checking and repairing these components will require the help of a service technician

Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

Refrigerator compartment freezing


Experience tells me the design should maintain 40 -34 degrees in the refrigerator section when the freezer is between 0 and -10 You might check this if you have a thermometer for the job, and adjust the thermostat accordingly. Your unit may also have an airflow control (I didn't research) to adjust the refrigerator independent of the freezer.

if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.
