Does the fan continue to work inside the freezer compartment when you open the door? Can you explain a little more what is happening now that it is not working?

This seems to be an overload/relay on the compressor causing the problem on this unit, also if the compressor was made by TECHSUAH which Jenn AIr used a lot of them, they were prone for burning out Overloads and computer boards, I have had to change a lot of these compressors for this type of problem, normally Jenn AIr will cover the replacement for you free of charge if the unit is under 5 years old.
Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory
first thing i did was try a new overload relay didnt help
i contacted jenn air
had a jenair service tech come out and said the compressor was good board was bad
i got a new board from repair clinic it worked fine for 2 days returned it and got new one with main high voltage board and replaced both it went bad 2 days later again
by the way it is a Tecumseh compressor
would the compressor be burning out both boards?
Yes, the tech should have replaced the compressor, he most likely did not want to mess with it as they do not pay good on compressors and then being able to charge you for a regular service call. I change about 3 of these compressors a week because of how bad they are..I have down to a science to where I can be in and out of your home in under 2 hours.
Thank you, have a great 2010
