I have a Jenn-Air fridge JCD2389DES with the following problems:1. In defrost it pours water out the front of the ice cream compartment.2. Beer is warm. I've defrosted the evaporator coils, melted the block of ice in the ice cream compartment, and things worked again, for a week. Seems the evap coils are once again a block of ice.From the wise pearls of wisdom posted here, I think I need a new ADC. (defrost controller). As water has come pouring out of the freezer at times, I will assume, for now, the defrost heater is working. As the frost pattern on the coils is pretty uniform and the ice cream is still frozen I assume the compresser/coolant/etc are working well.My questions.1. It seems this model is problamatic for bad ADC's. Have the new parts been retro-ed in any way to make them less failure prone. 2. Now that I will have a spare, is there a part on the ADC board I could replace (perferably with a part that won't go out in a couple of years) myself. Yes I can handle solder and a PC board.3. Assuming all else is working is there a way to keep the plastic tube that runs from under the evap coils down to the evap pan under the fridge from freezing up soild and causing the defrost water (melted ice) from pouring out the front of the freezer.4. Is the ADC under all the plastic controls in the top of the beer compartment. i.e. do I need to remove all that needlessly bulky plastic stuff to get to it?TIA, Great site!
