Question about Jenn-Air JCD2290HES Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer/Fridge work SOMETIMES

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.

I do not believe the problem is the fan. sounds like the frig. is low on Freon this is what will cause the ice build up. you need to find the leak, you can do this by spraying soapy water on coil tubes & watch for bubbles. repair leak & recharge.

Why does my daewoo fridge freezer works intermittently ?

You either have a faulty thermostat, a loose connection or most likely a build up of ice inside the freezer. I had the same problem. Almost replaced fridge. Took all the food out one day, took out the racks and disassembled bottom and rear and found a two foot log block of ice inside air return. Removed ice everything works perfectly.

Fan in freezer has stopped working,have defrosted and fridge seems to be cooler.

Simply defrosting the freezer might solve your problem. Sometimes ice can form on the fan or fan motor, and of course, prevents the fan from turning.

If there is ice here, your refrigerator isn't defrosting properly. This sounds like a defrost problem that may need a part replaced. Check out this site for details and photos. Refrigerator Defrost Parts

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling

we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone

Fridge/freezer

Denis, frosting back to the compressor is usually a sign of refrigerant overcharge. The fact that you noticed one of the other lines opened could indicate a wrong charge. You will need a cfc certified tech to check this thing out. This way he can check for a proper charge, restriction or a weak pumper...Catriver..post back.
