Hi,

This problem can be occur due to various reasons

1)Defrost Thermostat
2)defrost timer
3)Dust in condenser coil

1)Defrost thermostat

I have a Jen air - efabbcb.jpg Defrost Thermostat.It may be located under the floor of the unit, or it could be found at the back of the freezer. If you have a side-by-side refrigerator, the defrost thermostat is found at the back of the freezer side.

This could be a defective one.You have to replace it.

2)Mechanical defrost timer.

If your refrigerator has a mechanical timer, set the cold control to the coldest setting and then advance the defrost timer. You can manually advance the timer with a screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver into the advancement pinion and turn clockwise a 1/4 to 3/8’s of a turn.

3)You can use a condenser coil brush to clean the coils.

Because the coils exchange heat, any dust, lint, or dirt on them cuts down its ability to exchange heat.

Jen-Air Refrigerator does not cool ---freezer works


you have a defrost problem, most common problem component for the jen air refrigerators is the defrost control board pt#61005988. until you change the board you will need to defrost your refrig  manually about once a week. the board is located in the control housing in the refrig compartment and is fairly easy to replace yourself.

My refrigerator freezes my food solid


There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.
