Hi again,

In your particular model I believe it is termed as "MaxCool". It is also possible that the sensor for the refrigerator is covered by a food item and therefore was getting erroneous readings hence cutting off early (making the temp go higher than normal). Based on this, you can try switching the food items around relocating them as to how they were placed inside. Incidentally, frequent opening and closing of the refrigerator of course would be exposing the inside to warmer air making the unit work harder.

The reset requires that the unit be unplug for an hour or more hence my suggestion during the Live Session to make use of a second refrigerator while checking out the Jenn Air.

Jenn air refrigerator jcd2389ges freezes fridge


Bea, try this. UNPLUG the refrigerator for 12 hours and keep the fridge and freezer doors open. You might lose some food. NOW you will find some water under the fridge. clean that and now power up the fridge. Make sure you hear the motor working. Your fridge will start cooling. Keep at recommended temp.

Refrigerator portion freezes up. See alot of people with this particular fridge with exactly the same problem, but yet to see a solution. Jenn Air JCD2290hes


I have the exact same problem, and do not have a solution..yet. I am going to try putting resistors in series with the IR sensors going into the digital controller on both zones. This will trick the temperature controller in thinking the fig is cooler that what it is and hopefully keep it at the correct temp. range. If it works, I will post a step by step bulletin.

Fridge not keeping food cold.


When you open door to freezer do you hear a fan inside that compartment blowing? If you don't the fan motor is shot and will need to be replaced.
