Question about Jenn-Air JCB2389G Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a Jennair side by side GS2124PADB bought in 2000. Last night our electricity shorted out and we found that the fridge was causing the problem. Every time we tried to plug it in again, our electricity went off. Obviously there has been some kind of serious electrical event - so, is it worth trying to repair this 10 year old fridge, or should we buy a new one?

I would suggest having a technician check first , due to the cost of a new refrig . Due to a " short " which could be anywhere , we cannot even begin to give a diagnosis . You could disconnect the overload/relay from the compressor ( this was a previous problem with Maytag ( Jennair ) with shorting ) If this turns out to be the problem , replace . Maybe $200 vs $1200 .

    The overload/relay just plugs onto the side of the compressor , with 3 wires going to it .

I HAVE A JENNAIR JS42CSDBDA FRIDGE THAT WENT DEAD NO POWER,NO LIGHTS CHECKED OUTLET AND FOUND POWER GOING TO FRIDGE BUT NOTHING. IT ACTS AS IF IT'S NOT EVEN PLUGGED IN.


I am not familiar with this model BUT most fridge/freezers these days have a built-in electrical protection device [usually similar to a circuit-breaker] to protect the unit from any electrical supply surges and/or "shorts". You may find a RESET button located near the compressor housing. Press this and hopefully your problem will be rectified. Probably best to do this with the power switched OFF [although not always necessary].

Moving a Jennair


HI, If it was only on it's side for short time (hour) you will be ok. Just let it rst upward hour or so. If it was on side for hours, let it rest for 12 hours or so.
You should be ok.

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.

How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.
