Re: Jenn Air Side by Side Refridgerator

You could have a layer of solid ice at the bottom of your icetray which is binding everything up. Remove ice tray and any ice from the bottom. Reinstall and be careful of the connection on the back of the ice tray, you may have to turn it a little to get it to mesh correctly. refill and try. Good luck.

I have a side by side refridgerator freezer. I have just connected the water to the ice make / water dispenser for the first time and just a short trickle of water flows into the ice cube maker - not

I would guess that you need to purge the air out of the lines and system for it to work correctly. You can hold down the water dispenser for awhile to help, but if you do nothing, it should purge itself over the next few days.

We have a jenn-air jfc2087hrs (french door model) and the water pressure from the internal water dispenser is very low. the line has plenty of pressure.

If your ice maker is making full size cubes then it should one of 2 problems.
The water valve on the bottom back of the machine is a dual valve. One side feeds the ice maker, the other side feeds the water supply.
1. The dual water valve. is going bad. The water side is malfunctioning.
The dual valve must be replaced.
2. Your model should have filters for the water dispenser, and need replaced.
Try changing the filters first.

Model JCD2389GEW - ice/water dispenser does not work. Until recently, it did not do anything on any of the settings (water, cube and crushed ice) now it crushes ice on all three settings but the door does...

We have a Jenn Air side by side, model JCD2389GEW. The ice dispensers work, the water does not. This started after I replaced the filter. I've checked and nothing is locked out. When you press the actuator pad to dispense water, you can hear a noise similar to a small pump which I assume is a solenoid attempting to open. Any ideas?

In door ice maker not working

In some cases, living in an area with extreme humidity, the ice dispenser door can stick open ( a small flap in the chute that delivers ice into the glass). This can cause a problem. The grinder in the dispenser sounds like it is frozen. Try using a HEAT GUN (hair dryer) on a low setting to defrost the dispenser DO NOT TRY TO MELT THE PLASTIC! Or a quicker solution, Unplug the refrigerator and pour water thru the dispenser CAN BE A MESS try to catch in a bucket or pan. Remove the dispenser from the door clean and dry as necessary and reinstall.

Try using cube ice to see if this helps. The occasional cup of cubes will dislodge stuck ground ice in the dispenser.

Water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

The ice maker and water dispenser does not work. There is no power to the exterior dispensing unit on the refrigerator.

I'm assuming you are saying there is no ice and water being dispensed, but that the ice maker is producing ice.

Actual ice maker operation is independent of the fountain which is for dispensing only.

The power is checked at the fountain board on wires Red/Black and White. The door must be closed when doing this check as power goes through the door switch. If no power is present, check the same wires at the connector under the upper door hinge cover.

The next check would be Red/Black to Blue while depressing the actuator pad button.

Outputs off the board are Pink to auger motor, Black to fountain water valve, other Black to fountain light, Violet to cube solenoid, the two brown wires go to the ice chute door solenoid.

The ice maker can be checked by removing the plastic cover up front. Check test points L to N for 120VAC. Short test points T and H to cycle the ice maker. Make sure it does not have ice or water in the mold already, or it will run over.

Of course last but not least, check water to the refrigerator. It is a dual valve and unlikely both solenoids could fail at the same time.

Jenn Air JCD2389GES ice dispenser problem

You could have a layer of solid ice at the bottom of your icetray. Remove icetray. Remove any ice in bottom. Reinstall. Be careful there is a connection on the rear of the icetray, you may have to turn it to get it to mesh correctly. Fill with ice and it should work fine. Good Luck.
