How do i locate and replace a dual water valve on a jenn air jfi2589aep french frig ?


The dual water valves is located in the back of the refrigerator. You will have to remove the panel in the back of the fridge in order to access them. Use wire markers to mark the connectors to identify which commector goes where after replacing the valves.

What exactly is "covered" by the 5 year warranty? What does that mean? The repair person charged me a couple hundred dollars to replace the small electrial thing on top of the compressor. I thought that...


The compressor,internal and external coils for refrigerant routing are the sealed system. All other parts including the electrical part you had replaced is not part of the "sealed system".

8 year old regrigerator with bad compressor


Make sure it's not your start relay thats attached to the compressor.

Well if you are extremely handy you can purchase a new compressor and install it yourself.

Beverage air single door freezer compressor


OH well that's a real easy question to answer.

All the compressor manufacturers have a 1 year replacement warranty (just on the compressor). Any labor freight and mils like driers, freon, cleaner ... items are not covered.
Now you may be able to purchase an extended warranty for up to 5 years total. Some contractors offer their own warranty for extension. But ask yourself how much is it really worth to have ? Extended warranties are an additional cost and is not under the manufacturers warranty. So for the 1st year its the manufacturer anyway and on some manufacturers (Copeland) it is limited to 3 compressors total within the 12 months. So an extended may also be limited withn the 5 years.

And if your loosing compressors from 2 different causes, 1 electrical and 1 mechanical. And if the initial problems were inerrant in the compressors individually, the likely occurrence in the next 5 years is really remote in my opinion. Assuming the coil is kept clean and grease and paper is not allowed to block the condenser air and the defrost doesn't go haywire, and the electrical to the unit is kept within specifications and the replacement compressor was given a new drier clean refrigerant and maybe some acid cleaner.. But to me $700.00 for a whole job on a fractional compressor sounds really, pardon, cheep.


The reason is that if you hve more than 3 failures something else is causing them besides the compressors. (And I contend to agree). I have only had 1 compressor job that kept failing year after year. And the incompient rebuilder (Owens Hermetic OKC) kept rebuilding the same compressor body except for the 3rd time I talked the owner into getting a remanufactured one and that was because I took the old one apart and found the cylender walls scored and therefore the piston and rings were not sealing. And every winter the refrigerant would migrate into the compressor on the first cold day and boom no compressor.

Extended warranties (as far as i know) from an outside warranty company may not be as good as the paper it is written on. in other words I have seen 2 warranty company go belly up within the past 25 years. But not within the past 10.

Hope this helps answer your question. Let em know If I need to tell you more. If I helped you please give me as high a rating as you can. Thank you and good luck.

Jenn Aire side by side - freezer and fridge not working


Yes the compressor could be stuck but it's also possible the PTC could have failed - each will show the same symptoms. If you're a tech you can check the compressor or you can just replace the PTC also known as "relay". Part # 12002784 should run somewhere around $60.
