  1. what’s next if changing this electronic part doesn’t fix the cooling problem? My Jenn Air JDC 2389 GES..isnt getting cool on either side refrigerator OR freezer! HELP!

  2. This is identical to my 2002 Maytag wide-by-side. You just saved me $100.00 installation fee. Thank you!

  3. Is there any way to put this timer into defrost mode after installation.I have this exact controller in my Maytag side by side.
    I have no place to put the frozen foods to test the heater. Putting the timer in defrost mode would help a lot.Being able to see if any water comes out the freezer drain you would know the heater circuit is working. It is simple with a manual timer but electronic is a different story. Thank You for the nice video.

  4. Thank you sir. Great video. Third time I have replaced one of these ADC board in just just 6 years. Machine installed in Dec 1998. ADC died in 2009, C2 had blown. Died again in July 2016, beefier higher quality C2 blew again. Died again 12May17. This time I found a board for about $15 and replaced the whole board. Let’s see how long that cheep board lasts.
