Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a Jenn-Air French door refrigerator. It's about 4 years old. It is maintaining its temperature fine. But all of a sudden, about 3 hours ago, there is a constant sound similar to a squeaky door opening and closing. It's about a 2-3 second sound and then a 2 second break with no sound, and then it repeats itself....constantly. Thank you

This is most likely a door open alarm caused by a problem with the door / light switch. Locate the light switch plunger and depress it. The light should go off. If the light does not go off the door switch has failed. The door switch is removed by sliding a thin bladed knife along the side if the switch and releasing the locking tab. The freezer door only has one locking tab on one side of the switch. The fresh food compartment door switch has 2 locking tabs on opposing sides of the switch. You unlock the tab(s) and remove the switch. The fresh food compartment door switch has 2 wires on it that close when the door is closed. The freezer door switch has 3 terminals on it. One terminal is C common. One is NO Normally open and once is NC normally closed. The NC terminal will have continuity to C with the punger extended. The NO contact will have continuity to C only when the plunger is depressed.

I think you have a bad door switch. If the freezer door switch fails the unit will stop making ice.

Jenn-air gasket is hot

The refrigerator portion is fed cold air from freezer section to cool it. Check for the freezer fan and/or the damper mechanism that directs air into fridge compartment for proper operation.

Jenn air french door water dispenser broken

You have two sides to your 67006531 Dual Water Inlet Valve, so it is very possible the side that controls the water flow for the dispenser is defective. Replace the 67006531 Dual Water Control Valve and I believe your fridge water will work fine.
I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a major dent in the right door of my french door Jenn air fridge what is the cost of a new door.Model JFC2089H Stainless.

Depending on the part supplier the door will run about $400.00 to 700.00, I know that is really high!

One option you may have is to call around to service companies that work on Jenn Air, they may be able to look out for a door that they are replacing for someone that only has a small dent or scratch, and rather than scrap the old one, recycle it with you.

Not sure if that is an option but worth a shot
