Question about Jenn-Air JCB2280HES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Jenn Aire refrigerator keeps freezing food.

My refrigerator side keeps freezing food. I have turned the temp to the lowest setting but food continues to freeze. Someone has mentioned that it is b/c I do not keep enough food in it (it is in a vacation home in the Caribbean and I am not there but every few weeks, therefore it is never "full"). Any suggestions?

Your thermostat is faulty, pure and simple.
If the thermostat fails to do it's job, your compressor continues to run thus freezing your produce.

Jenn air refrigerator jcd2389ges freezes fridge


Bea, try this. UNPLUG the refrigerator for 12 hours and keep the fridge and freezer doors open. You might lose some food. NOW you will find some water under the fridge. clean that and now power up the fridge. Make sure you hear the motor working. Your fridge will start cooling. Keep at recommended temp.

Amana fridge (mod #sxd22s2) is freezing foods on bottom level- dial turned to lowest setting & temp. is 28 to 32 degs.at bottom of fridge.


seeing that 32 is freezing point of water,its not suprising that food is freezing.it should be 38f or +3c.when was the last time you did a FULL defrost(NO HAIRDRYERS PLEASE).ALSO CHECK DOOR SEALS ARE TIGHT ALL ROUND.

Food on the top shelf and in the bottom drawer keeps freezing


I'd check the temp control and up the temp abit instead maybe you have it all the way down low at the lowest setting, that will cause the contents to freeze.

Ge fridge GSS25LFGww, fridge part freezing food


Hi, Change the controls back to normal settings. Make sure the freezer is getting 0 to 5 above. If the freezer is getting cold enough, try and turn the cold control to 1 and see if the refrigerator shuts off. It sounds like the cold control in not working properly and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The freezer temp has to be right temp or the fresh food side will not work proper.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Freezing in frig.


Check the air dampers at the bottom of the fresh food section.They may have been moved to a open position. If so close them up some.
Otherwise the cold control thermostat may need to be replaced.
