    One year ago in March a burning smell was coming from our Jennair model JCD2389ges refrigerator. Soon there was smoke the circuit popped so refrigerator shut off. We unplugged then replugged refrigerator in but it was dead. We had the local appliance center come for repairs. They told us the compressor burnt up which was odd for a fairly new refrigerator. I am pleased to see this recall so now we know why it happened. We are now trying to get reimbursed for the cost of the repair last March. Just want others to be aware of recall and to follow through on it this could have caused major damage if no one was home.

MAYBE!  Our Jenn-Air side by side has a similar model number to yours and it was recalled on March 10.  Check on maytag's recall page to see if your fridge has been recalled by entering your model and serial number.

I have water leaking from the bottom. I turned off the water in the back and the problem stopped. Where is the water most likely coming from and how can I repair it? Model #JCD2389GE

Suspect your main water inlet valves .Usually ,they are behind kick panel bottom front of machine.Look for two small solonoid valves with tubing attached and inspect for leaks.Unplug machine to make repair,there is 120 volts down there.

Hope this helps

Ihave a jenn-air model #JCD2389GE the fan is running but the compressor won"t kick on it clicks and there is a short power surge but it does not turn on


As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
