Question about Jenn-Air JCD2290HES Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer side works fine

The freezer worked fine on my Jenn Air JCD 2389 GES. I found the coils inside the freezer after removing the panels and used a blow dryer to melt all of the ice that had formed (which was quite a bit). I'm waiting for the fridge side to cool down, but am hopeful it works since I know all of that ice built up in the freezer coils couldn't have been doing me any good. It sounds like I might have a defrost issue. Any ideas on what it could be?

You probably have a defrost issue. things to check are:
defrost heater not open circuit
there is often a thermal cutout in series with the heater and this may be open circuit.
defrost sensor may be wrong value.
fault in module

My Jenn-Air JSD2695kes. The refrigerator side is not cooling.


You most likely have a defrost cycle problem. Either a bad defrost heater, timer or thermostat. Jenn Air has put an Adaptive Defrost circut in the top of the Refrigerator section. You can find troubleshooting directions at ACMEHowTo.com

The refrig. smell was on a JRSD209T sorry


Remove the food in the freezer , to a level , where you can remove the 2 screws holding the inside rear freezer panel , and remove the panel . At the bottom of the coils , is the defrost heater ( black rod piece ) . On the left AND right sides of the coils , down by the heater , check to see if the freezer liner is melted , due to the heat of the heater . This is a common problem for Maytag and Jen Air refrigerators , for the plastic to get hot . If this is so , then get 2 pieces of sheet metal , 4 " X 8 " , and slide in on both sides of the coils , to protect the liner permanently . If the liner sticks out , use a hair dryer to try and smooth out the plastic , to make it possible for the sheet metal to be slid into place .
On mine , I found 2 pieces of a lower dishwasher kick plate , and slid into place .

Jenn-Air bottom freezer ice maker not working


I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!

Fridge is not cold enough, freezer is working fine, but has frost


Just had the same problem with my side-by-side.

In my case, the solution was to empty the freezer side, to access a back panel INSIDE the freezer covering the fan and cooling coils. Two screws held the back panel cover on, and when I removed the panel cover I found the cooling coils to be totally iced up, preventing the flow of cold air into the fridge side. I left the freezer open for a few hours until all the ice was melted, before replacing the inside panel. (I used a blow dryer to help speed up the ice melting).

Everything's working fine now for me - good luck with yours!

Jenn-Air Refrigerator Not Cooling


As others have noted, the solution is counter-intuitive but easy. The refrigerator keeps cold on this model by cold air coming over from the freezer side. So most likely it is ice blocking the freezer coils or the fan that moves the air. So turn off the freezer and defrost it. You will need to remove the big white plate on the back of the freezer (on the inside) to most effectively get the ice to melt. You can use a hair dryer for this, or just leave the freezer sitting with the door open for several hours.

change the adaptive defrost board located in the upper right corner of refrig under the panel. remove panel by pulling on panel towards you from the finger holes in the rear. remove two 1/4 inch screws and two phillips screws. defrost manually with hair dryer behind panel in freezer.
