I unplugged the fridge. Loosened the 2 top screws on the ice maker and removed the lower screw. I disconnected the wiring harness and removed the Ice maker. I removed the plastic timer cover in front. I then loosened the screws on the face of the ice maker and removed the broken ice stripper and replaced it with a new one. Re-tightened the screws on the face, installed the timer cover, plugged in the wiring harness, re-attached the ice maker. Plugged the fridge back in and walla, it was making ice in 30 minutes!

Since it was apparent the crisper glass is fragile I was very careful to not stress it.
I opened the box then took a large board almost as big and slid it on.I carried both items to the fridge and with both doors open slid the glass into place.I am 65 yrs. old and have owned many refrigerators but this is a first. They don't build them like they use to..

Was not cooling

  • Customer: Andrew from Wausau WI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Removed the back panel and swapped out the old board with the new. That was the easy part. Located the service manual under the frige and then had to program the new board. This was the hard part. If you did not press the buttons in the right order it would not work. I read the directions about 3 times before I was able to get this correct. If you pushed the wrong button you would have to start all over. I also had to replace the fan motor.

Parts broke due to overloading crisper trays

Wife learned you can overload the cheese and fresh veggie trays and the plastic rails broke. Repair required removing parts from the old crisper frame -- no experience and no instructions. Had to study broken part and figure out how to remove parts. Released catches with a knife and, by trial and error, figured out how to install rescued components on new crisper frame with minor damage and frustration.

The compressor would try to start,but would not.

the crisper cover which covers both crispers broke in a million pieces as i was cleaning it in my sink

well, first, after calming down i removed the glass from my sink (this took a half hour). then i went to the computer and looked for jenn-air parts. the part-select site came up. the site was very easy to use and although i usually leave things like this for my husband to do i decided to order the part myself, which i did.
the trick was finding something on hand to cover the tops of the crispers which were both full of vegetables. i innovated and used a shallow broiler pan and its lid which covered 90% of both the crispers. the part came in five days unwrapping the part was easy, cleaned it with windex (no sink soaking this time) and inserted it on top of crispers............totally easy!!!!!

Water leaking from Water Inlet Valve

  • Customer: Brian from Easton PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

Ok, pretty easy repair when the parts are correct (first part was faulty, parts select quickly sent me a new one)

First is removal, these tubes are in there very tight, they can be pulled out but weaken the lines and it is not likely to work without severly stretching the line to the point of breakage, if you have to cut them do so carefully and take off as little tubing as possible as you need the length to feed from top to bottom.

Once you have cut all the lines, or pulled them out (I was able to get 2 out without cutting) then make sure the edges are smooth, attach the inlet valve to the plate and just push them tightly into the new valve making sure you route the lines correctly.

Turn everything on and run the water line to see if it works. If no leaks, screw it back to the refrigerator and you are good to go. Takes maybe 20 minutes at most.

Tab on end broke off allow crispers to fall off rail.
