Question about Jenn-Air 48" Side-By-Side Built-In Refrigerator, JS48F
We have a refrigerator with an intermittent cooling problem. It will go up to 70 and then back down eventually to 34 (freezer goes 23 to 1). We have had repairmen out who have replaced the cleaned the coils, replaced the condenser and the compressor, and the last time cleared debris from the old compressor repair and replaced the drier. It has been down off and on for 3 months. We keep getting told it is fixed only to lose $'s of dollars of food.
I have had to have repair service once a year since I purchased my Jenn Air in 2005. Each time stated problem is different, works for a year and once again --- won't cool. At this point I simply say never buy a Jenn Air. I've had "cheap" appliances that last for years without a problem, spend big bucks and get ****.

The defrost timer is usually the problem and can be fixed real easily.

We just had a repairman out for the same exact problem. What he discovered ours was is that the lights intermittently stay on with the door closed. Test yours like this. With the door open, push the switch that switches it off and on off and on several times. Chances are you'll see that even with the switch depressed the lights are on. If that's the case he says it's one of the relay boards. There are four and the repairman will need to check to see which it is. Hope this helps. If this is the case for a temporary fix you can open the freezer door slowly close the fridge door while peeking through the crack to make certain the light is off.
