Question about Jenn-Air JBR2088HES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frost/Ice Chunks in Freezer

I have a problem with my 5 yr old Jenn-Air freezer. Model # JBR2088HES The freezer drawer "overfreezes" things in less than a day. There are chunks of ice and frost on food boxes and plastic packaging. I have not touched the temp control and don't know what could be causing this. The drawer is hard to slide in and out because of the ice/frost build-up.

Jenn air refrigerator model jbr2088hes is not cooling fan is blowing and cool air is coming into refrigerator


A compressor can naturally get hot the tech leaving parts on the floor is wrong the real way to tell if the compressor is bad is to unplug the fridge find the thermostat and unplug the two wires that plug into it then make a small jumper wire with two male spades and a two inch peice of wire and plug it in to both of the wires that you unhooked from the thermostat then plug in the fridge and wait 20 min if the fridge gets to normal cold which is 37 degrees or less it's not the compressor it's the thermostat but if it don't get any colder than before it may be the compressor but a new fridge is less that 500 dollars

Jenn Air freezer does not 'automatically defrost-side by side


If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem

If the ice build up is only on the back panel of the freezer then you have a defrost problem. Most likely a defrost thermostat or control board/timer. If frost build up is around the walls of the freezer then warm air is getting into the freezer. Most likely cause of this would be gaps in or torn door gasket or door alignment. In some cases the door was left cracked open. If gasket and door alignment is ok remove the frost and see if it comes back.

The bottom drawer freezer frosts up over a few days.


There's warm moist air entering the unit from the back somewhere. Pull the unit away from the wall and check behind there. Look closely at where the Ice Maker fill tube enters through the back. If you find the air leak, use "perma-gum" (google it) to seal it.... not silicone.
