Jennaire side by side refrigerator

Power was out three days due to weather-hooked refrigerator up to a generator and freezer side works but refrigerator side does not get cold. I turned the switch inside off and then back on in case it needed to be reset. the refrigerator is about 9-10 years old

Check the back wall of the freezer for snow on it. If present you have a defrost problem which will reduce or cut off air to cool the refrigerator section.

JCD2289AES jennair fridge refridgerator side is not cold but the freezerside works


The fridge side is not getting enough cold air from the freezer side. This could be due to a few things. The vents from the freezer is blocked, or the evaporator fan/motor has failed, or the evaporator coil is iced up due to the defrost circuit failure.

To check which is the problem you will need to empty the freezer to you can get access to the panel that covers evaporator coil. After removing the panel check to see if the fan is turning, also note whether the evaporator coil is iced up. If it is iced up, then the defrost circuit is failed. The problems usually are a failed defrost heater, defrost timer or defrost thermostat.

Both Freezer in my shed packed up at the same time is it due to the realy cold spell we are having> I have thrown alot of food away. Can anyone help sort it out .


Good day,
Any temperature below 55 degrees will cause the machine to go
out of balance. If far enough below 55 degrees the machine will reach a point where it rarely if ever runs. Thus your problem.

Frigidaire's owner manual will verify this.
Domestic refrigerators/freezers are designed to work properly at temperatures comfortable to people.
Usually 70 to 95 degrees.
Sorry I can't give you a solution better than this but it is a common complaint here in cold weather. This problem applies to all brands and models of refrigerators - freezers.

Thank you for using FixYa

BOTH SIDES DOES NOT GET COLD


Must be either a refrigerant leak or block of refrigerant. or even due to excess frost formation in the refrigerator often results in lesser cooling.

Please get habituated to defrost the unit at least once in three days.

Test the pressure of refrigerant to decide on recharging the refrigerant.
