Hello,

If refrigerator is not cooling properly can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer goes bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.

1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

I hope the above helps.......

Good luck.

Refrigerater is not cooling


The refrigerator gets air from the freezer. Look in the freezer for frost. If you have frost in the back or bottom the you have a defrost problem. Could be a timer or heater that is bad. If no frost do you hear a fan? You should have a evaporator fan running. Maybe thats out and it not circulating air for the refrigerator. You can check this out.
Hope it helps

Jenn-air side by side refrigerater


Make sure the fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall.(5 to 7 screws) If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked.With out a fan you have no circulation .Also if you can move everything out unplug it w/ doors open 12 to 24 hrs this will free up any clogged tubes.Turn it to 4 or 5. Good luck.Let me know.

In new models the freezer also cools the refrigerater with a fan. you have to call a repairman to do this work. he has the equipment to test the fans.
