Jen-Air JSD2989 AE, freezer works but the frig doesn't


Lets make sure that there are no frost build up on the freezer back wall like this=> HERE If there is a problem with frost building on the rear wall of the freezer the most likely reason will be the=> 61005988 Defrost Control Board

The defrost control board can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment just above the top chef. It is listed as part location 13 in this photo here=> JSD2989AEW Control Components
The next possibility will be the auto damper listed as part location 8 and that part number is=> 61005989 Auto Damper
12_11_2012_3_47_53_pm.jpg

Instructions on testing and removal of the auto damper and other repairs can be found here=> JSD2989AEW Service Manual
The other two possibilities are the=> 61006199 Defrost Heater and Defrost Thermostat

Jenn-Air JFC2089H Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator. One month ago the water tap stopped working then I noticied that the top doors to refrigerator would not reliably close like they used to. Last...


The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Freezer not defrosting


Hello pumpguy2
Welcome

You said, you have a Kenmore bottom Freezer Model 596.73503201. It works fine but the freezer has stopped defrosting. Any suggestions?

It is supposed to be auto or self defrosting.
What do you mean you are getting ice forming in the freezer?
Waiting for your response and more detailed explanation.

Refigerater warm


You have a malfunction in the auto defrost circuit. Could be a timer, heater(s) or defrost thermostat. Defrosting it manually is only a temporary fix. Under normal conditions the system will auto defrost at least twice every 24 hours.
