Question about Jenn-Air JS42SEDBDA Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Water dripping inside freezer side and temperature in freezer taking a while to recover. I was told that the drip pan was frozen therefore the water is leaking over the top and the ice buildup restricitng the airflow causing the recovery time of the temperature. Can the frozen drip pan prevent the airflow? I just had them recharge the system and there are no leaks in the sealed system.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air side by side fridge, leaking from the freezer

I'm not 100% sure here.. but I suspect you might have moisture in the lining of your fridge.. Not a good thing. It may mean your heater (to keep moisture out of the lining) is faulty. In that case it's quite difficult to fix.. The ice up in the lining is probably not due to a drip-pan. Sorry I haven't answered your question, but thought it worthwhile mentioning the other possibility. PS most drip-pans sit on top of the compressor under the fridge, accessible from behind the fridge. Usually there is a drain tube down to the pan. This can sometimes get blocked up & may need some cleaning solution like white king (bleach) pored down it, to get rid of mold or whatever's blocking it.

SOURCE: drip pan needs emptying; had repairman out for other issues, now fridge keeps overflowing

The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.

the defrost thermistor is your problem: it is going low (turning off) the defrost circuit far too quickly; it is a solid state version of a gas filled cold control sensor.
It "tells" the adaptive defrost controller circuit board the condition: (frost level) of the evaporator and, intitiates the defrost mullion heater timer. if it turns off to soon defrost
mullion heaters turn off and, icing occurs. I do not know; right off hand: which boards you are alluding to; however I believe you are referring to the power supply board for the

Leaking in front of Refrigerator this morning took off front plate drip pan full looks like water over flowed from pan. no other leaks inside and out.


hum the drip pan should not get full as the heat from compressor. the way the drip system is suppose to work is that the heat causes the water to evaporate before it builds up to much in pan? Therefore u may be dripping to much water in line due to? is there a heavy build up of ice in freezer? if so bad defrost terminator or simply the cold control is set to high? the optimum setting for ur controls should be medium or half way

Defrost drain is frozen. Poor hot water around it until it is clear. You will most likely have to take inside back wall of freezer off to access defrost drain. While you have it off, inspect metal pan to be sure holes aren't rusted in it. Some are aluminum, but some are steel.

Water dripping into the refrigerator


Sounds very common. Without seeing your refrigerator I can only imagine that you have a drain pan leak below refrigerator, defrost condensate drain line loose or missing the drain pan, frozen over drain opening inside rear wall of freezer or the defrost condensate line is blocked somewhere along its route to the condensate collection tray below refrigerator.

We were able to fix the freezer water leak. We unscrewed the false freezer floor and the inside back panel. Ice had accumulated on the freezer floor and the defrosting drain was frozen. We removed the ice by using a blow dryer then poured boiling hot water onto the frozen drain hole. The frozen water in the drain pipe hole eventually melted and the water released into the defrosting drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. Problem solved. We no longer have water leaking into the refrigerator.

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it


A bad freezer door seal causes condensation that freezes at the bottom of the unit. I realize you said the drip pan was full of ice, but if the drain is clogged, that will happen. If that unit has the pan at the very bottom, condensation can also contribute to this.

If the unit has an ice maker or water dispensor, etc. there's always a chance a connection is loose or a valve is leaking by. If no other water is hooked up to the refer, then the defrost cycle water that should drain down to the bottom underneath pan is what is likely. You may have to take the inside rear panels off to see if the drain line is plugged up, that would allow water from the defrosting of the coils to drip inside the fridge vice outside like it should.
