Question about Jenn-Air JS48SEDBDA Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a JS48SEDBA 48" Jenn-Air refrigerator. A month ago, I had the exact same problem with my ice-maker motor frozen because the water pan on top was not draining properly. I also had icicles in my freezer compartment from the water overflowing the drain pan and freezing around the motor of the ice-dispenser as well. A repair guy came to "fix" the problem, but the same problem has developed one month later; apparently, the drain was still clogged, or was unclogged but got clogged again. The icicles are back, and the ice-maker motor is frozen again.
Hi. What a frustration. I am thinking as u are that the drain line was never properly and thouroughly cleaned and sanitized and that the mold or whatever has come back. Here is the best way to proceed:
Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.
google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); There is a drain leading out of the freezer and another from the refrigerator. In top freezer models, the freezer may drain the water onto the back wall. It actually runs down the wall to the refrigerator floor drain. In other cases, there may be a drain tube leading out the freezer. The refrigerator drain is either located on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
In side-by-side models, the freezer and refrigerator will probably each have an outlet to the drain pan under the appliance.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
You can purchase this tubing at most hardware stores.

This may have happened because of a clog in the drain pipe and/or due to the ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. Also check the water valves wiring as given in this link. Please see these links for more details:
