Question about Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator
I have another issue that I could some help on. By the way, I appreciate your help on the other items in the past.
I have a Jenn-Air side by side refrigerator that does not cool well on the refrigerator side. I have at least tracked down the issue to the evaporator coils on the freezer side. They are not defrosting. I'm dragging out the hair dryer about once a week, and it's time for a real fix.
I've read other comments about similiar issues with the same model. I've tested the continuity on the heater coil and it appears that it does NOT close the loop. I can not get a "zero" reading when plugging the ohm meter into the snap plug for the heater. It reads something like .02 and never zero regardless which wires I attach to. Now if that doesn't confuse me enough, there is a routine clicking noise coming from the refrigerator cabinet at or very near the adaptive defrost control. I'm real confused and could use some direction before I start buying parts.
Thanks in advance for any direction.
Hi Tom, I think the clicking you are hearing is the board jumping into and out of defrost. You can test it your self by shorting L1 to test on the board. If it goes into defrost and jumps right back out (another click) it's probably the board. Unplug the harness and measure the continuity between 2 and 3 on the disconnect plug. On the Rx 1 scale you should read 20 to 40 ohms. If you have that the heater and T stat are ok. If not then go after the heater and T stat. The heater should ohm out at about 26.5 ohms. When you do the resistance checks on 2 and 3 make sure to unplug it from the board and have the power off. I believe it is a yellow and white/blk wire. Catriver

From your description I'll gather you're not getting ice cubes either and need to replace the ice maker
Part # D7824706Q on the diagram labeled "Lights and Ice maker" it's item 1
This is from Sears so you can order and have it delivered to the house
