Question about Jenn-Air JCB2389G Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
My refrigerator/freezer was making a strange noise. When I opened the freezer door I saw lots of icicles forming from the shelves. Obviously something is dripping from the top of the freezer. We turned freezer off and defrosted, but when we started it up it happened again.
SOURCE: Icemaker leaking causing icicles
Is it overfilling with water? If so, it may be an problem with the fill valve leaking slightly. I say slightly because if it were a large leak, the freezer would have frozen puddles in it. Also check the water chute to be sure the water is all going into the freeze tray. Sometimes they can work loose.
If the seam is leaking, there could be a crack in the housing - not sure that's repairable - sometimes epoxy will work (5 minute, 2 part) but it can be difficult for glue to hold on the type of plastic used in an ise maker housing.

This is probably due to the door flap in the ice chute not closing tightly. There is a solenoid that operates the door that
could have stopped working. Can you hear it?
The hinge on the door could be broken or the
bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

hi this might help you:
*make sure that the seal indeed still seal well enough...
*the older the fridge the more common this is
i don't really know much about this, but just check that it's cold enough inside like check if it changes when you change it from eg 4 to 7, and that the sealing is fine, and that your door is lined out good, also important that last thing offcourse, cause if it seems to shut good, but the seals arent in the right position compared to the other side (the 'fridge-walls' :p) they won't seal ofcourse...
I hope this is useful, and greets.

Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

You have two fans and a compressor which could be making the noise. Inside the freezer behind the back cover is the evaporator fan. It probably stops running when you open the door. Hold the door switch down to keep the fan running to see if it's making the noise.
the compressor and other fan is under the unit accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover.
