Question about Jenn-Air JBR2086HES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an over/under. My freezer drawer is not sealing on one side and creates a lot of frost build up. I have cleaned it out completely and removed all ice formation but it still is not shutting correctly. Is there an adjustment i can make to tweak the drawer?

    Good idea with the added gasket. Goint to try thin weather stripping and see if that does it. I'll be pulling the drawer anyway just to check the track. Funny, it's only 1 side, other side closes nice and tight. May need a new track??

    I checked the gasket on the drawer and it seems to be in good shape...no hard spots or wear. Just the drawer that must have been run in to while open and got a little tweaked.

There's no adjustment on the freezer drawer. It could be ice build up or an obstruction on the runners that's stopping it from sealing or it could need a new gasket. The Instruction Manual at the link below details how to remove and replace the drawer so you can clear the runners of any ice or obstruction.

If this doesn't solve the problem then you'll need a new gasket available from the link below, but they don't come cheap so you may want to consider an additional self adhesive gasket fitted to the freezer body (available from most hardware store)

    If the draw has been knocked while open then the tracks could have got bent slightly but you should be able to see this and straighten if necessary once removed. Link below of complete details for your appliance if needed.

Heavy Frost in the freezer


There are a few reasons for frost building up inside the freezer compartment. Refrigerators work like dehumidifiers collecting the moisture in the air inside and defrost is supposed to remove the moisture while defrost through a drain and then to the defrost condensate pan below the refrigerator. Ever notice how ice in freezer over time the ice cubes become smaller? Or food that is not sealed dries out. You either have one of three problems. Defrost drain blocked behind the rear wall in back of freezer, air leaking into freezer through the door seal and in your case the drawer seal and finally water possibly leaking into freezer from Ice Maker, Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hi pgtc;
Just check and make shore the door seals are completely sealing. If air is been sucked into fridge it shall create water, same as freezer frost is created by air been sucked in.. Oh thats as long as the freezer is working -18deg.. Cheers

Sub Zero Model 550 (1992) freezer drawer doesn't seal


the drawer need to be adjusted so that it will close.. with a air leak you will have frost build up around the drawer...there are drawer closers on the back of the rails... it may be broken or just pushed the wrong way...when the freezer is cold it should make that sucking sound and be hard to open ... hope it helps

My freezer is frosting...there is snow all over


In my case with constant snow and frost build-up in my bottom drawer GE freezer, it was because the drawer never properly closed. As one user noted, "there is no adjustment." However, there are "catches" at the rear of the drawer glides and in my case one needed adjustment because it was preventing the drawer from remaining closed tightly. SEE PHOTOS. The photos show many items removed, but to make this repair, you only need a butter knife to pop out the black plastic catch mechanisms at the back end of the drawer glides, and only if you can see that the spring is not properly positioned. SEE PHOTOS

Freeze will not freeze.


I had a similar problem. The frost in the back is an indication that your coils are frozen. This could be from food packages falling out of the freezer drawers in the back and blocking the air circulation vents or maybe the freezer door was not closed completely and letting moist/humid air in and freezing the coils.
For me it was the first problem listed.I had to completely empty the freezer and Frig. and take the back panel off in the freezer. There you will see the coils and lots of ice!
1. Remove all items from the frig. and freezer and unplug frig.
2. Pull all the freezer drawers out.
3. On my GE side by side I took the light cover off and removed the bulb. There you will see two panel screws. Remove the screws.
4. Now pull out the mouldings on each side and you should be able to remove the panel.
5. Take a hair drier and completely defrost all the ice from the coils.
Be sure to keep plenty of towels handy for all the water mess. Remember to keep an eye on the drain tray in the back of the frig. and use a sponge to collect the water that will build up.
Hope this helps!.....

FRIDGE FREEZER BUT FRIDGE STOPPED WORKING FREEZER WORKING OK


look on the back wall of the freezer is there snow? if so you have a defrost component out (timer, limit, or heater) the fresh food compartment gets cool air from the freezer so check for blocked air pathways the build up of frost in the freezer stops air flow so you will be cold on freezer side and warm on ref side
