When we built our retirement home (2017) on the family farm, we purchased all Jenn-air appliances. After about 4 years the thermostat on the refrigerator went out and the ice maker stopped working. Then when the Jenn-air service guy replaced the China made parts they used and plugged in the refrigerator, the compressor went out. To make a long story short; in the last 10 months the thermostat has been replaced 4 times!!! And now it has gone out again. The reason we purchased a high end pricey appliance (as recommended to us by our architect), was to not go through all this breakdown and replacement nightmare we have been going through these last 10 months. So, we went to Lowes and bought a cheap frig, like we did over 15 years ago for our cabin. That cheap frig is still working and no repair hassles!
We purchased a full set of kitchen appliances Wall oven, microwave, warming oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Well all I can say is that everyone has now needed repairs. They included 2 wall oven mother boards, a hose replacement on the dishwasher a control for the warming oven and finally a control panel for the fridge. Well here the fun starts, aside from paying for repair visits and parts the last "REPAIR" included the service call but the part is no longer available so I paid for a service but no repair. Now here is the real kicker. The solution was not diagnosed correctly and was able to fix the Fridge myself. All appeals for consideration or refund for the service call were firmly denied. However I was offered a 15% discount if I bought another Whirlpool product. Well I do not think that is going to happen. Thanks Whirlpool for everything.

So much for paying extra for a "high end" refrigerator. The refrigerator broke. I called Jenn Air to repair it and I have been WITHOUT A REFRIGERATOR for 2 AND A HALF MONTHS. They have been unable to repair it multiple times. This is UNACCEPTABLE. JENN AIR - - do you think it's acceptable for a person to have NO REFRIGERATOR for 2 and a half months especially during COVID? What is the point of paying extra for a "high end" refrigerator with service like this?

Purchased in 2018. Interior is a beautiful obsidian design with LED lights. LED freezer light went out in March 2021 which caused top refrigerator lights to go out as well. April 2021 replaced freezer light which corrected the issue. August 2021 freezer light went out again, once again, top refrigerator lights went out as well. Jenn-Air reports LED lights on back order! In the interim, 4 other interior refrigerator lights went out. September 9, 2021 bottom light was replaced however problem still not resolved. As of this date September 21, 2021, 6 refrigerator lights and 1 freezer light are still not working. Jenn-Air repair service is terrible, no communication with customer.
I have to say when we had this refrigerator installed by the company that we bought it from, it has been a real pain. It was big money and we expected a serious experience but it has been nothing like that. The refrigerator was not designed well and the lines revealing the unit are un-even. The installation MUST be awful because they cannot get it right even after quite a few different installers. The specialty cover that covers the compressor does not fit well on the top and it continually loses its position and falls off and if not it crooked in the hole (Poor design).
Even worse, the door does not close easy. It continually stays partially open requiring you to return to the refrigerator over and over. I have had installers return to my house 3 times now and I am not expecting it to be resolved. A big money refrigerator should be a dream and this is not. The amount we paid does not even cover the cabinet finish. I will not buy Jenn-Air again.
My wife and I recently had our "New" 48" refrigerator delivered and installed in our kitchen remodel. Aside from not having a kick plate, "It was left at the showroom", after running it for 18 hours we opened the door. As the humidity hit the glass we started seeing shapes that look like the unit was not new but a showroom model that had staging items placed in the unit for display. When I inquired about it to the store where it was purchased, I was assured that it was new in the box and only opened to load it in the truck for delivery. I was told that the rep, unk name, advised that the shapes were made from glass cutting equipment. I have purchased several refrigerators in my lifetime, I have never seen things like this or have been told such a ridiculous story. If the store is telling me the truth, and the unit was opened prior to delivering it to my location, I'm afraid this was a return or refurbished unit that was sold from the factory as new.
We have been extremely frustrated with our brand new Jenn Air refrigerator model JFC2089BEM that came with our new apartment without our choice. We noticed several two big cracks in the floor lining of the freezer unit, which should have been there since beginning. Initially only a repair with sealant was offered, but after several long customer support phone calls, in which we provided proof that it was reported within 30 days of our move-in, Jenn Air agreed to replace it. However, the second new unit has terrible issues with humidity and condensation in the main compartment and severe constant ice buildup in the freezer floor.
The service person found that the freezer door rubber gasket is crooked and does not seal, and ordered for a replacement door, but the door takes 6-8 weeks to arrive at minimum. Meanwhile, the fridge condition remains to be unlivable with: we have to constantly deal with frozen and spoiled vegetables and food in the main compartment, while clearing out ice buildup in the freezer compartment almost every day. What’s worse, the fridge seems to develop further problems with the leak: the compressor starts to make weird loud sounds, sometimes cracking sounds which wakes us up during our sleep.
We are so afraid that even if the defective door is replaced after 8 weeks, the fridge is already damaged to the state that it will continue to have other problems. And this will easily put us in an endless fix loop. We called Jenn Air for any possibility of quicker actions since the fridge is not functioning properly and we suffer from living with it for more months. This time Jenn Air won’t offer a replacement although we again reported within 30 days since they claim it’s repairable, whereas practically this problem is far worse than the cracks. The whole experience is a sheer waste of time and effort, adding to the list of problems we have moving to a new place. The quality of the fridge is evidently questionable based on our two units.
We don’t even understand how such a crooked fridge door could pass the quality control tests. On top of it, their service is not considering the troubles of the customers. We feel they could try some temporary measures to stop further damage to the fridge: e.g., put the proper door of an old fridge or some rubber fix. We are reasonable customers who understand the difficulty of the industry, but putting us in such a living condition with a repairable claim is really unbearable to us. We will certainly never buy or recommend Jenn Air refrigerators. I have never seen such issues with manufacturing and build quality with any of our previous four refrigerators from other mainstream brands like Samsung or GE, which cost mostly half of Jenn Air’s price.
I ordered a complete set from Jenn-air - Fridge, 6 burner stovetop, in-wall oven/micro, dishwasher and compactor. I had an issue with my fridge, back in November. Called the extended warranty line and it took 2 weeks to book a rep. When he came, he found he had to order parts. It has now been 12 weeks and still, these parts are not in. So my fridge has not worked for 14 weeks, and still they have not updated me on when these will be fixed.
Also, my built-in had a failure on the HMI, as well as the main board, which have both been replaced, but now the same issue persists (turns on in the middle of the night, turns off while cooking). They still haven't fixed it. I have never been so frustrated or angry at a company ever. They just keep pushing me off, and here I am with a young child and no fridge.
I brought my Jenn-Air 2017 for $9840.49 and within that same year the light inside the fridge was not working. Since then I have called for services every one because there is always issue with the lights. This month I was told the light are deem not repairable. I had bought extended warranty on it and now they want to buy me out for $5800.00. My only issue is that I don't need any buyout, I just want my refrigerator to be replace. Bad product.
Brand new Jenn-Air refrigerator model number JFFCC72EHL02 delivered 1 week ago has not worked at all. Right out of the box -- not working. Had to wait several days for service to come out to reset the unit and take it out of "showroom" mode. That didn't work. Now waiting another week to have service out again to have the control board replaced. Did I mention this is a brand new right out of the box refrigerator? Why should a brand new unit need to have major parts replaced? This model is expensive -- for $4700.00 I was expecting a lot more. Very disappointed so far.
