Jenn-Air js42sefxda. Freezer and fridg won't cool. Ice was built up at the top of the freezer. I turned it off for 24 hours and once the ice melted it operates normally. How do I prevent the ice...


There is a defrost timer that normally controls the defrost cycles.
It appears that the defrost timer has failed. A new timer needs to be fitted. a technician can help you with that

I have a jenn-air jcd2389ges that is not getting cold.it runs and works but is not getting cold ..


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.

On a Jenn Air Model JCD2289AES refrigerator, how do I replace the defrost timer - I have the new timer


According to your model number you don't have a defrost timer you have an adaptive defrost control which monitors the freezer and fridge and determines when it's time to defrost. It's part 13 on this diagram. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=JCD2289AES&productCategoryId=0165000&brandId=1266&brandDescription=JENN-AIR&modelName=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00007&componentDescription=CONTROLS&documentId=M0406285&blt=06

If the defrost thermostat and heater are good then replace the control if you are have defrost problems.

Jenn Air JSD2789GEW side by side Refrigerator not cold


If the adaptive defrost timer is out (hidden circuit board at top of fridge behind light panel), the freezer coils will ice over & prevent the air from circulating over to the fridge side. If the defroster coil or temp sensor is out (lower freezer side behind large panel), it will cause the same effect. If the "start relay" on the compressor is going bad, it may not allow the compressor to come on when its supposed to. My unit suffered from this. It still cooled, but not nearly as well as it was right after I replaced the adaptive defrost timer. I noticed I heard clicking for around 15 seconds.. this was the relay trying to function & activate the compressor. Perhaps the faulty adaptive defrost timer caused the compressor relay to go bad? Regardless, those are the usual suspects I'd tackle first. They can all be tested to prevent the expense of "part changing" Adaptive defrost timer is ranging from $35-$79 online..your loca maytag/jenn air dealer will have these in stock as they are the most common culprit. Relay is $10.50, defrost heating element around $50. These are all very simple & easy to replace. Pretty much just a philips screwdriver & removing a few panels. Remember, ALWAYS make sure any electrical device is unplugged before servicing, also, some capacitors (i.e.,around compressor) will hold a charge like a battery & will zap you. Always test the wire with a meter before touching. The real expense is having somebody do the work for you. Good luck.

Freezer and refrigerator top part does not cool, only bottom.


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

I have jenn-air jcd2389ges - the freeze keeps running and coils ice up. It is cold and does make ice. I shut it defrosted -put it back on and it just keeps running and frosts up again


It could be a bad defrost timer or a bad thermostat. Both are a cheap fix also, check to see if the condenser coil is clean. If it isn't clean it!
Another possibility if it isn't the T stat or defrost timer, the defrost heaters or overload might be bad.

Icemaker is not freezing ice, freezer not freezing food,


The ice maker won't work if the freezer is warmer than 17 degrees so that's not an issue till you get the freezer cold again. I would guess that your unit is stuck in the defrost cycle. This could be the defrost timer failing. See if you can find the defrost timer in your unit and advance it by hand if possible. http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchResults.aspx?modelnum=jcd2295hes&mfgmodelnum=&fkmfgid=1&hint=defrost
