Question about Jenn-Air JSD2789GEW Side by Side Refrigerator
I have adjusted the temperature bar but it doesn't seem to be as cold as it used to.
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.
