Question about Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator
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?

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!
