SOURCE: Jenn Air JCD2389GTW Refrigerator problem

I just paid a little over $300 to have this fixed and boy do I feel ripped off. The part is available online for about $50 (I was charged $140) and the repair guy was here for about 40 minutes ($120 in labor, $170 before the 30% new customer discount, and $55 to defrost the freezer. Anyway, hopefully you don't get ripped off like I did and now that you've listened to me gripe you can find the solution at the end of this post. If for some reason this site doesn't allow links look up part # PS727531 or Auto Defrost Assembly. You will probably have to defrost your freezer first (which will solve your problem for a month or two). Here's what I learned about defrosting from watching the technician: Get lots of towels, if you have a drapery steamer or carpet steamer with furniture attachment it seems to go by much more quickly then when I used a hair dryer. Anyway, here's the Link. I don't mind paying for the work but I feel totally ripped off. Hopefully, this will help.

SOURCE: JennAir #JCD2389GES not cooling refrig at all.

Well guess what. Jenn Air / Maytag now has this issue as a recall. So just call them and tell them the fridge is not cooling. They will schedule a recall service appointment. Do be sure they schedule it as a "recall" service appointment or you will be charged.

That sure beats pulling out the hair dryer every time it happens!

Service number is 1-800-462-9824

Good luck

SOURCE: freezer works but refrig has 60 degree temp .evap coil is caked

Hi: Did you check the defrost heater itself? I checked Jennair and Sears parts to no avail. If you didn't check the heater it will be at the bottom of the freezer behind where you removed the back cover. A glass tube with a coil in it. If the coil or tube is broken replace that insead. I hope I helped, Jeff I found a website with the defrost timer, but not the location of the timer on the fridge. http://www.appliancepartsworldwide.com/store_SearchResults.aspx?S=1131392&ST=PBM

SOURCE: Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working

I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

The freezer works fine but the refrigerator will not get cold.


On most new refrigerators there is damper that opens and allows the cold air from the freezer to circulate through the fresh food side.
I have seen this same problem caused by over stuffing either the freezer side and or the fresh foods side. On the sides of the fresh foods section there are normally vents which allow cold air from the freezer side to flow. If these are covered up, the air cannot circulate and without air circulation, the temp rise.

Both freezer side and fresh food side work because air is allowed to circulate around your product. I saw a refrigerator that the bottom half was 70 degrees and top half 38 degrees. The shelf about halfway down was completely blocking airflow. Threw out a bunch of boldly items and bags, rearranged items so air could flow and unit started working properly again.

If the damper is not opening, I have seen them freeze shut. It may have to be thawed.

There is also on some models a recirculation fan that gets turned on to circulate cold air from freezer. If this fan burns out or is blocked, it may need to be replaced.

You can go to searspartsdirect.com with your make and model number and get a complete drawing and parts breakdown for most refrigerators. And more important, you can buy them and have the part typically in two days at your door.
Hope this help!

Veg and fruits freeze up.. Why? and what should temps be for frig and freezer?


We had this problem almost 4 yrs ago. It was the damper assembly which is a common problem w/ GEs. A damper is a door flap that opens and closes between the fridge and freezer that allows cold air into the fridge to regulate the temperature. Eventually, it breaks, allowing in too much cold air into the fridge, thus making both sides a freezer! Fixya's link that helped me is this one, which is very helpful: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2007/12/06/ge-side-by-side-refrigerator-freezing-the-beer/. You also might need to enter a diagnostic code when you replace it. Check this out also:
http://fixitnow.com/wp/2009/10/02/activating-self-diagnostic-mode-in-a-ge-arctica-refrigerator/. Don't let the description of the fridge as a GE Arctica mislead you. These are different models, but internally are the same components.

Kenmore model 596 72913200 freezer works but fridge not getting cold


This will be an air flow problem from the damper failing. Usually what happens is, the air vent is not allowing air to pass at the damper due to the motor not opening and allowing the cold air to pass into the refrigerator side. A good way to check it is, to feel the amount of air coming out of the vent between the freezer and the refrigerator. If the air flow seems slow, or no air at all, replace the damper to restore air flow to the refrigerator.Here is the part you need to order.


The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Freezer side works fine


you probably have a defrost issue. things to check are:
defrost heater not open circuit
there is often a thermal cutout in series with the heater and this may be open circuit.
defrost sensor may be wrong value.

Jenn-Aire JCD2389GES Side by Side: Frig not cooling fully - freezer fine


i'm thinking that maybe an air duct is either blocked or the damper isnt opening. In the freezer compartment at the top right side there is a cover that is held in place by 1 screw. (look at item number 35 here). remove this cover and make sure ice is not blocking it up. if that is ok, then check the damper control to be sure it is opening and closing properly. The damper is located on the refrig side in the control cover (look at item# 8 here).
