My Jenn-Air JS48PPDUDB01 has been making a beeping noise (alarm) and it sounds like it cycles on and off every few seconds. Ice/water dispenser and display don't work either. Otherwise it seems to cool/freeze just fine.Anyone have an idea as to what is wrong and how to fix? This fridge will be replaced and I want to know if it's an easy fix or not. Not looking to drop a lot of money for repairs. I was hoping to move this unit to garage and use as an extra fridge.

Your Jenn-Air refrigerator, model JS48PPDUDB01, is exhibiting a few concerning symptoms: a beeping noise (alarm), cycling on and off every few seconds, and non-functional ice/water dispenser and display. Despite these issues, it's good to hear that the fridge continues to cool and freeze effectively.

The beeping alarm typically signals that the refrigerator has detected a problem. The irregular cycling could indicate an issue with the control board or a related component, while the malfunctioning ice/water dispenser and display suggest a potential electrical or control issue.

Considering your plan to replace this fridge and potentially use it as an extra unit in the garage, you're understandably looking for an easy and cost-effective solution. Here are some steps to consider:

The control board might be experiencing problems, which can cause irregular cycling and affect the operation of the display and dispenser. Electrical issues, such as wiring problems or short circuits, could also be responsible for these symptoms.

A reset might help resolve these issues. Try unplugging the refrigerator for a few minutes and then plugging it back in. This can sometimes reset the system and clear temporary glitches.

Consult the user manual for any troubleshooting tips specific to these symptoms or error codes that might be displayed.

If these steps don't resolve the issue, a basic diagnostic from a technician could provide a clearer picture of whether the problem is a simple fix or something more complex. Given your intention to avoid significant repair expenses, this could help you decide whether the repair is worth pursuing. When dealing with electrical appliances, always prioritize safety and ensure that the fridge is unplugged before attempting any inspections or resets.
