Question about Jenn-Air JCD2295HES Side by Side Refrigerator

JCD2295HES side by side not working correctly

About a month ago, our 3 yr old Jenn-Air froze up and the water container cracked. I replaced the container and the fridge worked fine until 2 days ago. Then the unit froze up again, but the water container didn't crack this time. I left it unplugged for a day to see if the evaporator would thaw out, but no luck. The fan in the fridge compartment wasn't running when I plugged it back in. Does this sound like a thermostat problem or a fan problem?

    Correct. What I meant what was that the fan in the freezer compartment is not blowing at all and there was frost on the evaporator.

    In the meantime, I pulled the sheet metal off the back of the freezer compartment. The fan is running, but making an odd sound and it doesn't push the air very forcibly. When I felt the vent on the fridge side to see if air was being pushed through, there was none. Any suggestions?

    Also, when I plugged it back in, the evaporator was getting plenty cold, but frost was building up on it. Could this be a thermostat problem and how difficult is it to replace the fan motor?

  • hank vera Mar 18, 2008

    Even though the motor had technically been working, I replaced it and it and that solved the problem. So far, so good. Pretty sad when something like that goes out after only 3 + years. Doesn't say much for Jenn-Air.

Yes that does sound like a bad evap fan motor then unable to circulate air aorund and off hte evap thus building up can pull the wire leads of the fan motor and ck for 110v. to confirm that you are indeed getting power to the motor.

    does sound like a defrost issue, the fact the fan blows means its good. looks like the control / display board controls the defrosting, take a look behind the kickplate under the right side to a techsheet, shloud be able to "force a defrost cycle",

Not cold.

There is a good chance that the heater in the freezer is not working. If it is not working the coils in the freezer do not defrost and you won't be cooling either side. [cooling coils are froze up and the air fan cannot deliver cold air to either side and air fan cannot remove warm air from either side]. You might also want to check the defrost timer switch.

Jenn Air freezer does not 'automatically defrost-side by side

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out for troubleshooting the defroster problem

Jenn-Air refrigerator is not making ice but it's dispensing water

It can take up to 24 hours for a new ice maker to make ice.  Check it tomorrow.

Fridge keeps freezing

Chances are, they replaced the wrong parts, or didn't replace all the parts, assuming they replaced an electric motor kit. I would need to know the P/N of the electric motor kit to confirm what was replaced.

Based on the fact that it froze the drinking water tank, and if they replaced the electric motor kit, the problem is more likely the temperature sensor or the control board.

Let me know what the P/N is of what they replaced and we can be more precise.
