Question about Refrigerators
Hi....I have a Jennair JCD2389GES with icemaker in the door....am having the same leak problem...intermittent leaking that freezes into a sheet of ice in bottom of freezer after leaking water all over my hardwood floors....could you advise exactly where this solenoid is located or send me a drawing or part picture...I am unable to figure out exactly what iIam looking for?...I have removed the back cover and see three water lines coming out of the bottom right rear side of the refrigerator....thanks.....mr g
There is a solenoid that controls the water flowing to the ice maker inthe freezer. It is usually near the bottom of the fridge on the back.It may be covered by a cardboard or metal back that is easily removedby taking off a few screws. There will be one water supply line cominginto it and one or two water supplies going out. When the solenoidbegins to fail it sends water to the ice maker when it doesn't need itcausing an overflow in the ice tray which leaks down into the freezergiving it a kind of glacier effect. Real easy fix though. Just replacethe solenoid on the back of the fridge. I bought one onlinefor around $20 and it is very easy to do. If you have water in the doorand an ice maker it will be a dual solenoid. Turn off the water supply,disconnect the water lines, take the solenoid off the fridge to getthe part number. Googleit, Get it, put it back in the way you took it out, turn the watersupply back on and your back in business without a costly ripofftechnician.

If you looked at the back section of the freezer (inside) and found ice then you need to completely defrost the fridge freezer. What you are describing is a frozen evaporator and the freezer needs airflow to work properly. If the unit starts behaving normally after defrosting then you need to monitor it closely as they will normally start playing up again after 2-3 weeks. If it does fail again then you probably have a defrost problem normally the defrost heater but can also be the defrost timer o defrost sensor. If it fails to reach temp then I would suggest contacting a decent repair guy who should be able to diagnose which one within a reasonable time. I would recommend defrosting first though because the same symptoms can happen when a door is left ajar. Hope the above is of some help.

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak

Try to do a hard reset. Turn off the unit and unplug the power cable for several hours like 3-4 hours then check if that fixes it.
