The charging valve should be on one of the compressor lines, however, on some refrigerators, they don't expect the compressor to ever be changed out, and don't put a charge valve fitting on the unit. So, when replacing the compressor you will need to braze in the valve fitting.

Hi
you will have to put on an access valve to recharge the feon to your system... to do this you will need a saddle valve and vacuum pump and gauges also to do it right you will need torch to seal it . you may want to have a pro do it...

Jenn-Air JS48SEDBDA, sn 1271791 will not cool both freezer and refrigerator


The number reason for the Jenn Air no cool situation is caused by a break down of hte PAG oil in the compressor, thus clogging the capilary tube at the filter drier area, and causing contamination within the system. Per the Maytag TSB, a new compressor kit, heat exchanger, and new liquid line drier are required to be replaced. The compressor kit should come with a new main logic board. The ramaining componants need to be completely purged with nitrogen till clean. The condensor coil must be clean and free of any dust. A new lower freon charge follows the completed repair, and replacement decal to show new charge.

What happen if my refrigerator compessor is overloaded with freon


If overcharged during charging of Freon compressor will be stressed and cooling will affected. Charging refrigerators are very sensitive to overcharging because refrigerator's use very little Freon, only about 6 ounces. Symptoms of overcharging are high compressor amperage and difficulty cooling. Best to weigh Freon while charging and always use a new filter drier. Refrigerator's are also extremely sensitive to have even one drop of room air in the lines (sealed system)before recharging and require a long and perfect vacuum before recharging. Symptoms of air in the sealed system are compressor starting and then shutting down because small amounts of room air in the system cause compressor to strain bogging compressor. Air in the system will cause water droplets to freeze in the capillary tube causing a blockage that causes the compressor to stop and start again once the droplets thaw out. I will be glad to explain more should you have more questions, Thanks, Sea Breeze

First refrigerator stopped cooling, next freezer. Seemed like it was trying to defrost but their was lots of ice built up on coils. Jen-Air side by side, counter depth model number JCB2388ARB.


Causes of ice build up on coils:
Not enough freon (leak). Coil defrost heater not working (Coils on all freezers freeze up, but you should not notice). Coil defrost timer not working. Compressor thermostat not working (or end fell out of proper location).
:o).

Jenn Air JCD2389GTB side-by-side refrigerator freezing & cooling


Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
