Jenn-Air JCD2290HEB not working

This refrigerator was purchased in July 2005 so it is almost 5 years old.

This morning I noticed that my fridge was not working. Both the freezer side and fridge side were warm. There was power and the fan seemed to be running. Six months ago I had a similar problem and the problem was fixed by replacing a faulty evaporator fan. That time the panel in the freezer was cold, there was just not cold air being distributed. This time the back panel inside the freezer half was warm top to bottom.

I took the cover inside the freezer off and confirmed that the evap. fan motor was working. It was. I then went and tripped the electirical breaker for the house off and on again. The fridge seems to be cooling again. Is this indicative of some sort of compressor start-up problem?

Try defrosting ther could be an ice buildup in the channel between the fridge and freezer.

You have plugged the defrost drain line.This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube.

Try it and let me know!

Problem seems to be solved. I unplugged it for a short time and plugged it back in. I'm guessing it needed to be re-set.

You will need to pull the fridge out and remove the rear lower panel. If the unit is operating you will be looking to see that the fan in the rear is also operating. Most likely it is not. You will need to replace that fan motor if it is not.

Jenn Air 48" Built In Not Cooling


We just had a repairman out for the same exact problem. What he discovered ours was is that the lights intermittently stay on with the door closed. Test yours like this. With the door open, push the switch that switches it off and on off and on several times. Chances are you'll see that even with the switch depressed the lights are on. If that's the case he says it's one of the relay boards. There are four and the repairman will need to check to see which it is. Hope this helps. If this is the case for a temporary fix you can open the freezer door slowly close the fridge door while peeking through the crack to make certain the light is off.

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.
