Jenn air refrigerator jcd2389ges freezes fridge


Bea, try this. UNPLUG the refrigerator for 12 hours and keep the fridge and freezer doors open. You might lose some food. NOW you will find some water under the fridge. clean that and now power up the fridge. Make sure you hear the motor working. Your fridge will start cooling. Keep at recommended temp.

Freezer blowing air but getting warmer and stopped making ice. Fridg also seems to be warming up. no unusual noise.


If there is no cooling at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that the compressor and gas pressure is OK. But if the freezer also gets warmer it can be failure of the auto defrost making the vents choked. Now shut off the fridge and leave it powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas within.
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Power on Interior lights on refrigerator does not operate not cool


The interior lamps fail to light up as the swittch is faulty , so replace teh door switch if a contact cleaning wont help.
Now the cooling is related to many issues, so shut off fridge to allow time of 5 hours, The restart , if the fridge does not cool , the compressor , gas pressure is done and must be checked. If cooling is present then check if the auto defrost timer/thermostat is faulty as the fridge might stop cooling after 12 hours.

I have an amana fridge model # arb190rcw.nothing remains frozen in the freezer.and i have noticed ice on the back wall of the freezer compartment


Your cooling coils have frosted so much that there is ice forming allover the cooling coils and preventing the actual cooling inthe fridge. First of all shut off the fridge for about 10 hours and wait for all the ice to defrost. Clean up your fridge well and then check inside of the freezer compartment for break in wiring, failure of the heater or the thermostat. Now put the fridge on and see if the cooling comes back.If the set works ok then dont worry till you experience the same fault coming back. In this case your auto defrost timer could be faulty as it is not doing the 8 hours cycle defrosting. Check this out test and replace . Get help if you are not familiar. good day

Constant clicking sound coming from power box amana fridge


When you heard the click and the compresor stops ,check if it's very hot , if yes the compresor is of on overload and this could happend because 1 the condenser coil is dirty ,2 the relay is bad or 3 the compresor has a problem .Also check if behind the kick plate there's a timer (some units have it there or next to the cold control ) that could cause a problem too.

After moving fridge (and waiting 36 hours) compressor won't start


You should worry , the 12 amps is a locked rotor on the compressor , it may be the over load relay control on the compressor as well , try replacing the over load start relay first , they are not expensive , if this does not fix it you can try installing a booster like a rco410 but the comp. can not take that abuse for years from the booster. when the comp. is running normal it will draw roughly 1.5 - 3.0 amps.
