SOURCE: jenn air jcd2389g side by side refrigerator water leak

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak

SOURCE: JennAir #JCD2389GES not cooling refrig at all.

I believe I solved my own problem. First, I defrosted the coils on the freezer side. This is done by turning off power to the refrigerator and using a hair drier to defronst. This takes about 20 minutes. To open the panels, unscrew the top two hex head screws just slightly. Then unscrew the next lower two hex head screws all the way and remove two panels revealing the frosted coils and the fan. It is easy to unscrew these using a screwdriver-type wrench. As the defrosting takes only a short time, I did not have to throw away any food. We have this same refrigerator in two houses, main house and vacation house, and I have used this method a couple of times on each refrigerator. The problem arises when, in warm weather, someone leaves the door open. One time it happened because a cardboard case of 12 oz sodas was preventing the door from shutting all the way. For that particular box, which is used in CocaCola products, you have to put the back of the box over the top of the shelf ridge; otherwise the box protrudes a bit too much in the front.

The above method did not work completely the last time I tried it. There was a warm spot in the middle of the rifrigerator side while the freezer side worked okay. To fix this new problem, after checking all coolness settings, I removed the assembly in the top of the refrigerator side--the control temperature control unit. The temperature control assmembly is mechanical and consists of just two levers that control the flow of air from a vent in the upper left corner of the refrigerator side. (My unit has the freezer on the right hand side.) The levers (for refrigerator temperature and freezer temperature) just open and close the vent. Another vent on the left middle of the refrigerator side controls flow to the middle. I had already opened this. When I loosened the temperature control assembly (four hex-head screws and two Phillips-head screws), I discovered that a piece of styrofoam had lodged in the air passageway between the freezer section and the refrigerator section. I removed this.

Unfortunately, I inadvertently broke off a plastic tab holding the canopy that covers the temperature control assembly. This caused me to do a lot of swearing. Nevertheless, I overcame the problem by purchasing a small shelf support that screws into the rear panel of the refrigerator. These are available on-line or from an appliance store. To avoid breaking off the tab, gently pull the canopy forward to allow the tabs on each (rear) side to be disengaged through two rectangular holes in the canopy. Gently work the tabs through these two holes.

After working on the canopy for awhile, I was afraid that the freezer coils may have gathered some ice. If so, I would have to re-defrost these. All was okay though.

One more thing: be sure that there is room for air to flow near the top shelf of the refrigerator. Stacking up too many things on that shelf deflects the airflow. When trying to get the refrigerator side working correctly, I removed everything from this top shelf. Cooling was perfect, so I added a few items to the top shelf, and everything continued to work just right.

Yet another thing: I figured out that the noise I had noticed came from the filter bottle that had outlived its usefulness. Rather than buy another filter bottle, I just ordered two dummy filters. I have given up on the actual filters because they cost $50 apiece and last for about four months. I can't taste the difference either in Los Gatos California, or Tahoe City, California. Of course, I had thrown away the dummy filters for my two refrigerators, but I was glad to see that these can be ordered on-line.

SOURCE: Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

Jenn-Air JS48SEDBDA, sn 1271791 will not cool both freezer and refrigerator


The number reason for the Jenn Air no cool situation is caused by a break down of hte PAG oil in the compressor, thus clogging the capilary tube at the filter drier area, and causing contamination within the system. Per the Maytag TSB, a new compressor kit, heat exchanger, and new liquid line drier are required to be replaced. The compressor kit should come with a new main logic board. The ramaining componants need to be completely purged with nitrogen till clean. The condensor coil must be clean and free of any dust. A new lower freon charge follows the completed repair, and replacement decal to show new charge.

Frig not stayng cool. Freezer not freezing


most fridges have a evaporator dish or container.
it must be emptied ...and cleaned and disinfected.

now-a -days they are usually mated with the compressor and cool this unit down. notice there is no coil along the back of the fridge...it is usiually behind the fridge at the bottom with a cardboard or plastic access cover...
this will make the unit cool better and return the cooling to normal....
\next
clean out your freezer...i bet it's full of 4 month old packs of something you'll never eat....this will let the freezer breathe and circulate air to the coil ...i bet it has 3 in of ice on it...yikes...your not alone...most people do this...\
get a freezer if your getting ready for the apocalypse and liberate some room.
good luck
