SOURCE: ref no cooling freezer okay

There's alot of things to check here, David. But, since it's a GE, I'll assume a defrost problem 'cause they are known for those issues. Is there ice/frost buildup on the rear wall of the freezer? If so, it's not defrosting. 3 things will cause a "no defrost" condition. Failed evaporator thermister, Failed defrost heater and failed electronic control. Your model has problems with the first 2, rarely the 3'rd. You can get your machine cooling again by manually defrosting it. Simple, unplug it for 24 hours and leave the freezer door cracked open an inch or so. After time is up, plug it back in and it'll cool just fine for a week maybe two, 'til the frost builds back up again. This'll buy you time to get parts and do the repair and besides... it has to be done anyway. Even if you had the parts in hand and did the repair right now, you'd still have to manually defrost it. Post back and let us know.

SOURCE: the coil in the freezer is freezing up and when it

The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

If you need help finding your model number see here> http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx

To locate your timer, motherboard, control or adaptive defrost control , enter your model number and search for the part or post back on Fixya.

Refrigerator compartment cools correctly for a few days then no longer receives cold air from freezer. The freezer continues to operate and gets much colder than it should.


does your fan blow? freezers have a fan that pushes cold air to the fridge side if fan is bad freezer will run extremely cold and fridge won't cool down and since frige won't cool down thermostat in fridge doesn't tell compressor to stop

Jenn Air ref/freezer not freezing/cooling


Take the back out of the freezer and check and see if the refrigerator is in defrost while it is cooling if it is replace the timmer, then check and see if the fan on the underside is working if not replace the motor this will cause the problem also.
If all that is ok feel the small line under the refrigerator ( high side) and see if it is hot while it is running if not check the freon in the refrigerator.
