SOURCE: water in floor

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: Jen-Air Refrigerator does not cool ---freezer works

you have a defrost problem, most common problem component for the jen air refrigerators is the defrost control board pt#61005988. until you change the board you will need to defrost your refrig  manually about once a week. the board is located in the control housing in the refrig compartment and is fairly easy to replace yourself.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL side by side freezer works fine but frig warm

You may think the freezer is fine, but stick a thermometer in to be sure. It should be around 0 degrees F. If not, you may have iced up coils. See some other posts on this site about getting to those coils and defrosting.

SOURCE: Freezer works, frig does not. Also ice build up in freezer coil

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.

Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.

Jen air jcd2289aew freezer working but almost no cold air blowing into fridge


You should not be hearing any popping noise from the refrigerator. That could indicate a defective start relay or attached wiring. Can you tell me the freezer temperature? After the refrigerator has run for a while I need you to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer. Unplug first and quickly remove the panel and tell me what the frost pattern looks like. Reason I ask is I need to make sure that there is no Freon loss. If there is loss of Freon the evaporator will look like this in photo HERE This problem could also be a defective auto damper in fresh food compartment not allowing cold air from the freezer side. Here is a link to a Service Manual HERE Try these things and let me know what you find. I am here to help you get this refrigerator going, Thanks Sea Breeze

There is a TSB on this (TSB) = Technical Service bulletin. You need a service company to order part number W10599551 and put it on. This will fix the problem.

THE UP PART OF OUR JENAIRE (REFRIGERATOR) LOSES TEMPERATURE, BUT IT DOES NOT EFFECT FREEZER. iT IS A JEN IRE. iT HAS HAPPENED THREE TIMES NOW AND WE HAVE DEFROSTED IT THREE TIMES.


I have found on some of these units that the light switch by the crisper drawers when being use breaks the door light switch and keeps the light on in the frig side, and with the door closed and no hands on the door!!! use a butter knife to go between the gasket and the housing of the frig door gap the gasket to see if you can see the light on in the frig when the door is shut. If so replacement of the light switch is required.

Fridge/freezer. Freezer works great but fridge is


Air from the freezer is blown into the fridge by a fan, some new type frigs have electronic controls that open and close a vent to frig. the older ones have two vents in the frig from the freezer and when covered with frost or ice the air will not reach the frig. check for ice or just defrost the freezer if there is ice or frost, also check for food or plastic over vents in freezer. Also check that the freezer fan is running as these sometimes become blocked or defective motor.
