Jenn-Air side by side refrigerator, Model JRSD2490. Not staying cold enough

Larger=colder. Make sure that 1) your magnetic strip around the fridge door is sealing well. Even a small leaking area could make it difficult to keep cold, especially in warmer areas. Also, make sure there is nothing obstructing the door from closing completely and sealing properly. I had this same issue where one of the door shelves was unlatched a little and the door would close but not seal. Beyond that could be motor or more likely compressor or coolant leak. Good luck.

Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator Damper Door fell off. How do I put it back and what will happen if I cant?

Not knowing exactly how you broke it off, its hard to say just how its supposed to go back on. Since these are usually screwed into place, or in some cases its a snap tight fit, something is definitely broken, and you will likely need to replace the damper door. If you do not fix this properly, you will not be able to adjust the fresh food temperatures, and in fact you may freeze your refrigerated food, or it may be not cold enough to keep food fresh at all.

Ice not strong enough to push open ice maker door


You said,
The ice maker door seems to have a tight spring or something because when the ice goes in the chute and then backs up.

The door needs to be replaced because it is bent or out of alignment!
How old is the fridge??
Now a days you have a 1 year warranty!

Or the seal is not tight and air gets inside past the door and then the moisture freezes on the spring.

Referidgerator side is not cooling?? Help?

I had this problem. Here's what I found: The cooling core on the freezer side was froze up. Covered in ice. I think the reason this happened was that the freezer door was held open by one of the slide out trays just enough to pull in outside air. Don't know how long it was like this. When I found it (and corrected it) the interior of the freezer was covered in ice crystals. From then on the refer side contents began warming up. There was no flow of cool air to the refer side from the freezer side (this cool air comes in from the freezer side fan near the top left side of the refer side). Freezer side was near zero temp and the unit ran continuously. Here's what I did: Removed everything from both sides (put it all in another fridge/freezer). Turned off (or unpluged) the fridge and left it off over night. I put towels under the fridge because there can be an over flow of water that could go to the floor. It works great again.
