Freezer Constantly Runs.
Do you know what design temperature is for that freezer? Some are meant for 0 degrees others for -10 or 15. I would say you are trying to maintain -10 for a food freezer and trying to keep ice cream frozen. Ice cream freezers need to be colder than food freezers. I know it sounds dumb but look it up. Check the door gaskets to see that there is no leakage and the surrounding area should be no higher than 75 degrees, (otherwise it\'ll run all the time). Hope this helps and good luck.

Why is jenn air jcd2389ge hot around front freezer door frame?
The heat at the opening of refrigerator is usually a sign the condenser coils are dirty. Check the condenser coils for a restriction underneath the unit. Dirty condenser coils will cause poor air flow over the coils and compressor. Poor air flow will cause a lot of problems, including overheating the compressor, the refrigerant and the copper lines. This will destroy your sealed system. The coils need cleaning at least once a year, more often if you have pets.
I couldn’t determine if your unit has an “energy saver” setting. If so, turn it on. Not all refrigerators have energy saver. This is on units with emilion heaters in the wall around the door gaskets. The heaters are to eliminate condensation around the door. Turning ON energy saver turns OFF those heaters. You should notice a change quickly if it’s the heater causing the heat, that is, if you have that model.
Cleaning the coils will need a day or two to allow things to cool down before you notice a change in the heat around the door.

True 49f fans stopped running.
Compressor still runs. Fixes? Troubleshooting steps?
I am assuming you are relating to the evaporator fan(s) not running. If this is the case, some units have a 'Klixon" type thermostat in the evaporator so when the evaporator coil temp reaches a predetermined temperature, the fans come on. You may have a bad "Fan Delay" (Klixon) or the coil is not reaching the proper temp to activate it to turn on the fans. I would check the wiring diagram on the unit for this part to see if this unit has it in the system.
