Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Compessor is not kicking on. The freezer began thawing and water dripping out the door. Is there a reset button on the compressor


No reset on compressor. Try controller first, and check all else working e.g. fans lights etc. if power to compressor and not running, time for a new compressor

I have water leaking from the bottom. I turned off the water in the back and the problem stopped. Where is the water most likely coming from and how can I repair it? Model #JCD2389GE


Hello
Suspect your main water inlet valves .Usually ,they are behind kick panel bottom front of machine.Look for two small solonoid valves with tubing attached and inspect for leaks.Unplug machine to make repair,there is 120 volts down there.

Hope this helps

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).

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

Air conditioner fan comes on then surges for compressor and stops


You can check if theres power to the compresor by pulling the wires off it and turn it on with the volt meter at its terminals if there's power the comprresor is either burned out jamed or grounded.

Compressor is not kicking in


Probably power surge shorted out the main board. If so it will need to be replaced. Gotta call for service.
