Question about Jenn-Air Refrigerators
refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in
every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting
system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually,
though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the
circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a
small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow
over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite
Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

This is caused by the defrost system not doing it job .. there is a timer in some models and aditive defrost control in newer models . it knows when to defrost the frig . if it does not defrost properly the cold coil gets blocked with ice and stops the cooling . if the control ic not bad then the heaters may have failed and there is a defrost terminator that may also bee at fault . most common would be the heater / then terminator / & then the A D C. .. . hope this helped mm..
