Question about Jenn-Air JCD2290HES Side by Side Refrigerator
For the past week I have noticed that my freezer is not working properly. First I woke up to find water all over the floor from where the ice had melted......I thought the door had been left open overnight so I chalked it off to that. I poured out the melted ice and shut the door. It worked fine for a day or so then it happened again. This time my food was completely thawed out but still cool. The fridge side was fine. We set the temp control on the freezer side up a notch and it started working again....for a day or so......now the fridge and the freezer work and then don't work - get cold and then not so cold...... the compressor keeps kicking on and off and is becoming more and more frequent.....every 3 or 4 minutes as of today and only runs for a couple of seconds and then shuts off... sounds louder than normal. HELP!
Guys, I need advice and any help will be appreciated.
I have Jenn Air model JCD229Key. I think it has restricted/plugged
system. I have troubleshooted it so far that I know 100% that
compressor, thermostat and fans are working fine. I need your help to
figure out where is the system plugged. When i fire it up it, compressor
starts buzzing and working normally. There are two pipes that lead from
the compressor to evaporator (one is thicker and another one is thin
like toothpick) These two pipes start freezing(frosting) immediately but
the thicker pipe starts to defrost, and first two evaporator
lines/circles (look like coil)- they are frosted/frozen too. So you can
wipe off the frost with finger but hey freeze immediately - but nothing
above that gets frozen. THANKS

Sounds like you have a bad relay on the compressor or a bad compressor. If the compressor is a Tecumpseh brand then it is most likely the problem.
