Most Jenn-Air refrigerators have an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC) in the control console at the top of the fresh food compartment that controls when the refrigerator goes into defrost. A common failure is for the ADC board to never start the defrost cycle. The fix is to replace the ADC board ==> http://www.repaircli...61005988/948430

You can test it by cycling the Freezer Cold Control 3x within 6 seconds and leaving it on MAX and listening or feeling for the defrost heater hearing up.
Or just go ahead and replace the ADC board, it's such a common problem that it's very likely that will fix it; if it doesn't, return it for a refund! ==> http://www.repaircli...61005988/948430

If original (early model) ADC before "G"
... You can test it by cycling the Freezer Cold Control 3x within 6 seconds and leaving it on MAX
then "early" forced Defrost method:
Momentarily short L1 to TEST pins on ADC.
The "newer" ADC (same part number) are re-designed and work better than the "early" units (which were prone to fail)
