Fixed one problem only to create another? Just replaced the defrost timer, which fixed the original problem of intermittant defrosting, but now temp of refrigerator is too cold! Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

If you turn the thermostat to the OFF position and the compressor stays running you have a bad cold control.

When you replaced the timer in the upper console, did you mess with the plastic strap that ran to the damper control in back??

Yes, we took the plastic belt off in order to access the defrost timer. Are there marks to orientate the belt in the proper place?

First of all, this topic belongs in the Maytag Forum, not Frigidaire....JennAir is a Maytag brand. Mr. Capone, would you please see to it?

The plastic strap that connects the damper to the front control wheel has many small holes, but only one elongated hole. This matches an elongated cam on the damper for proper alignment. By not having it on there correctly, your damper may be wide open, causing the cold temps you complained about.


The best way to do any job like this is to first consult the Service Manual before you get all Bob Vila :)

Here's the JennAir Top Mount Manual for your model...if all else fails, read the book.
