Question about Jenn-Air JFC2089H Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a kenmore pro side by side fridge...model 253.5533606 It has been working just fine as our spare fridge, and is NOT hooked up to a water line so we have never turned the ice maker on. Yesterday it started to make a continuous beeping sound...fans are not running...it has started to to warm up...and the interior control panel is not reading anything as far as temperatures. The unit is frost free, and I have tried unplugging it for as much as 15 minutes to see if it needed some sort of power inturruption to reset. There is nothing in the manual describing a continuous beep. and none of the buttons on the control panel seem to do anything, even when holding them in for 3-5 seconds individually or in conjunction with each other. although the fridge is 3 years old...we have only used it as a spare fridge, and only for about a year and a half now...the rest of the time it had sat in it's box. is there some sort of button combination to "reset" the controls....or a manual reset under the unit? the book makes reference that the control panel can read codes for diagnostics...but if the control panel isn't lighting up....I question how that will work. If I could just get some help on how to get the control panel to light up again...I'll feel better about calling a tech in to look at it.

Hi,
My first thought is that the control board has gone bad...that is why you cannot reset anything and turn the alarm off. So with that bad you basically can do nothing with it...diagnostics will not work either..

Unfortunately, unless you purchased an extended warranty, you probably have no coverage under warranty either.

New control boards should be available from searspartsdirect.com I tried to look up your part, but the model number you gave I think has one too many numbers in the second part. You have seven numbers and I think it should only have six...check the number and search for your model, then look for the control board.

A Tech. should be able to tell you for sure the problem in a few minutes, also, if you choose to go that route...

I will also say that an appliance just sitting can be very ******* them...moisture can get into them and with no internal air movement or heat it causes many problems, so because it has sat for so long it have have developed problems quicker then if you had used it the whole time...

Comment back if you have more questions...

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...

Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Water not going into icemaker. Water dispenser works fine.

Check the water valve at the back of the fridge if present.

Even if you used blowdryer, ensure that linse are not frozen by performing a complete defrost.

Disconnect water lines from icemaker, and blow with compressor if the above did not work.

No water or ice from older kenmore side by side

You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.

Kenmore fridge ice maker not working

only two things this could be, either your water valve is bad or your icemaker is bad. you can get a kit which comes with both for a little over a hundred bucks, and you can change them yourself.
