Open Question

Trisensor Climit Control on model JFC2089HEP does not adjust

My Jenn-Air French Door Refrigerator is 3 1/2 years old. The Temperature has been set at 0 and 38 on the control since day one. Recently I tried to reset the temperature and found that the controls appear to be locked, but, not per the book. Nothing on the control works. The 0 and the 38 degrees light is lit as well as the small LED bulb for the Door Alarm and the Temp Alarm. I have unplugged the electrical feed for 30 minutes, but nothing changed.
The unit is still working, but I would like to ajust the temps to relieve some of the frosting of vegetables. Thanks

SOURCE: Can't change temperature

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem

SOURCE: Jenn-air JFC2089HEP French door

one of the plastic wtaer lines could be cracked,when the ice maker fills the water line could be cracked and leak out when it's filling.also it looks like you have a water dispenser in your machine,go in the back with the bottom panel removed and have someone fill a cup of water and check the lines while it's filling.where does it look like the water is leaking from?is there ice in the bottom of the freezer floor?the drain could be blocked.when the machine goes into defrost if the drain is blocked the water will leak out onto the floor of the freezer and then out onto the floor,if that's ok i'd have to say it will be one of the plastic lines,it gets hot in there,have you been cleaning the condenser coil?that should be vaced out at least once a year,this is how the heat escapes from the machineif the coil is clogged with lint and dust it will run hotter than normal and this also makes the plastic lines brittle.hope this helps and change the water filter every 6 months.

The icemaker appears not to be producing ice! what should i do? it is the French Door JFC2290VEP4, purchased just a few months ago. Freezer temp set at 6


Try to adjust the freezer temperature to a more colder level to see if it will produce an ice and to check also if the problem is within the temperature control.

I have a major dent in the right door of my french door Jenn air fridge what is the cost of a new door.Model JFC2089H Stainless.


Depending on the part supplier the door will run about $400.00 to 700.00, I know that is really high!

One option you may have is to call around to service companies that work on Jenn Air, they may be able to look out for a door that they are replacing for someone that only has a small dent or scratch, and rather than scrap the old one, recycle it with you.

Not sure if that is an option but worth a shot

Loose freezer door handle


There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia

Jenn-Air JFC2089H Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator. One month ago the water tap stopped working then I noticied that the top doors to refrigerator would not reliably close like they used to. Last...


The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
