The jenn-air fridge that i have jcd2289ae has stopped working it is tripping the gfi, i have tried plugging it in another plug in but it trips the breaker


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Jenn-air-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-JCD2289AEQ/1266/0165000/M0406284/00012?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= here is a simplified wiring diagram for your unit. It might help you track back the problem.

Before it started tripping the circuit breaker what was your refrigerator doing that was not normal? Usually, before something fails massively it will give you hints it is coming. Did your ice maker or lights stop working? Has the compressor been running an excessively long time?

What trips a breaker is the unit drawing more current that what the breaker is listed at. So something in the unit has shorted to cause this to happen. Although the first thing we check in a situation like this is the compressor circuit it isn't always the cause.

Ice maker Problem: Not making ice anymore


check out if the water is really flowing well from the pipe or hose .

1 Answer

Water from the water dispensor not flowing anymore


Do you hear the valve opening at the back of the fridge click when you push for water?
If not ....it may need to be replaced.
If you do hear a click.....the water line may be frozen in the freezer door.
Open the door wide open for a while......1 to 2 hours and occasionally try the water.....cover the freezer compartment with towels to keep the cold in that area but not the door.

Ice melted


Very possible your compressor is bad or the start capacitor is defective. Need someone to do an electrical test on compressor to eliminate the compressor.
Let me know if I can help further, Thanks Sea Breeze

LG refrigerator french door icemaker not working


The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Circut Breaker trips


  • i have no experience with RV units but if it were in a house i would suspect a bad breaker or a problem with the outlet itself. breakers  only trip when the wiring is gets hot.
  • unless it is a ground fault breaker (usually on the outlet) then this would trip if the flow of electricity is grounded. ground fault breakers do go bad often.
  • i think if the refrigerator itself had a problem then it would be consistent (as far as it is pulling amps anyway). not work fine sometimes and not others.

Ice maker


I would replace the water filter on the back of the refrigerator.they eventually become clogged and prevent the normal water flow to the ice maker.
