Question about Jenn-Air JBR2088HES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Frost/Ice Chunks in Freezer

I have a problem with my 5 yr old Jenn-Air freezer. Model # JBR2088HES The freezer drawer "overfreezes" things in less than a day. There are chunks of ice and frost on food boxes and plastic packaging. I have not touched the temp control and don't know what could be causing this. The drawer is hard to slide in and out because of the ice/frost build-up.

I have the freezer set at 3. There is ice forming all around the door and snow like frost on the food.


Frost buildup on food and ice around the door is due to warm air infiltration. This sounds like a door closure problem. Be sure that nothing is interfering with the drawer as it closes. Be sure to open the upper door and look down at the drawer top to see that the gasket is hitting the steel frame of the cabinet. Look all the way around the entire drawer front checking the seal.
Also open the drawer and hold it as it closes, so that if there is any food product binding it you will see it get hung open.
Good luck.

Am unable to reset refrigerator temperature. currently at 60 degrees


Do you have a lot of frost on the back wall of the freezer section. If you do you have a defrost problem. If you have no response from your controls the control board is part number W10207861 about 165.00. You want to be sure before spending for a board it may not need. Hope this helps.

Jenn Air freezer does not 'automatically defrost-side by side


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

My ED5HHAXVQ02 refrigerator is not cooling. However the freezer is overfreezing and frost is building up.


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie 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

If the ice build up is only on the back panel of the freezer then you have a defrost problem. Most likely a defrost thermostat or control board/timer. If frost build up is around the walls of the freezer then warm air is getting into the freezer. Most likely cause of this would be gaps in or torn door gasket or door alignment. In some cases the door was left cracked open. If gasket and door alignment is ok remove the frost and see if it comes back.
