    Why was the board replaced? Does it make a click, humming noise?

Generally when a printed circuit board faults it often takes out the other boards too.
You may need to get the main PCboard replaced too

The newest defrost feature in modern fridges is the electronic adaptive defrost control board. Maytag/Jenn Air has one version, see put this adaptive defrost style of fridge into defrost, short with a small screwdriver between L1 and test on the adaptive defrost board, wait 3 seconds and you should hear a "click" noise from the relay and the fridge will shut off and go through a defrost cycle.

yes its a common problem its called the jaz board. the only way to tell is ohming out the sensor and heater the by elimination it is the board. i recomend putting any newer appliance on a surge protector.sometimes depending on the board there is instructions to program it with your serial # also make sure your light swiches are being activated when you shut the door. good luck!

Food defrosted in freezer--turned to coldest setting--there is some cold air coming in but seems only small amount-refrigerator is only "cool"-fan seems to be working

I believe part number W10135899 Defrost Control Board is defective. The board is located inside the fresh food section and behind the control panel. Near the temperature controls. Look at the rear wall of the freezer. If a layer of ice is forming on the rear wall of your freezer then it also is forming behind the rear panel of the freezer and restricting air flow. The Defrost Control Board is the most likely reason then there are 2 more things to have a look at. That is the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Would not be a bad time to manually defrost your freezer so you can bring temperatures down and replace the part. Unplug refrigerator, remove the rear panel inside back of freezer and defrost the evaporator coils with a hair dryer Or you can leave a bucket of hat water setting inside the freezer compartment with door shut for a while. Let me know what you find, again most like problem is the Defrost Control Board, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My Jenn-air side by side is not cooling on the frig side only.

Either bad defrost heater (rarely) , bad bimetal (defrost thermostat) , or bad adaptive defrost control(most often) .Defrost control is located at the rear right side of control panel (a small circuit board ) .

Make sure both fans are running and check that your the coil is not frozen. The coil is behind the freezer panel.

Jenn-Air coolimg fan problem

Good Morning!
What youre experiencing could be a result of a faulty oven temperature sensor, a faulty oven control board or relay board. Youre more than welcome to send both the main control board and relay board for evaluation. Fixyourboard will test and repair both as needed for less expensive than buying new, and include a two year warranty.

JennAir #JCD2389GES not cooling refrig at all.

Well guess what. Jenn Air / Maytag now has this issue as a recall. So just call them and tell them the fridge is not cooling. They will schedule a recall service appointment. Do be sure they schedule it as a "recall" service appointment or you will be charged.

That sure beats pulling out the hair dryer every time it happens!

Service number is 1-800-462-9824

Good luck

Jenn Air JCD2389GTW Refrigerator problem

The auto defrost timer was broken, so my refrigerator repairman replaced it. The part is about $60. The bigger expense was the labor getting to the timer, which is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator within the plastic casing that houses the temperature control levers. He then had to remove the panels of the freezer and defrost the coils with a blow heater. It took several hours.
