SOURCE: water dripping from freezer to fridge

Sounds like the drain for the defrost cycle water may be plugged and you eventually overflow water. See if you can find the little drain hole for the coil defrost water and check for dirty/plugged. Try to pour hot water in the drain area and see if it runs out the drain fast (if real slow it's a problem). Make sure the water is also going down to the holding pan near the bottom area/compressor area (that's where it evaporates later). Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: FF200EP Fridge Freezer - water

I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
or
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!

SOURCE: got water leaking from bottom of fridge/freezer on

If you take all the drawers out of the freezer - you will find 8 screws with 'bolt type' heads - 2 top, 4 at sides and 2 to the bottom.

Turn the power off. Undo all these screws and remove the rear panel. You will notice the 'gubbins' of the freezer. At the bottom you should notice there is a shaped plate with some piping running around and then up into the cooling 'radiator'. Towards the middle left of the plate there should be a hole - this is the drain hole. Is it blocked with a 'slug' of ice! Yes is my guess. This needs defrosting as will the rear panel you took out by any guess.

I did ours this morning as the fridge freezer was making a heck of a racket. Took about 30 minutes with the wife's hairdryer - and I'm no expert.

I just enjoy the fact I'd probably saved £50 plus on a callout.

Error code SY CE displayed plus lights in refrigerator and freezer not working


I appreciate your post, Carol!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY CE" and the lights are not working. A "SY CE" error code stands for a communication error at start up. This might be a miscommunication within your refrigerator and I would recommend performing a reset in order to correct the issue. To reset your refrigerator you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue you may need to change your control panel or a wiring harness. In order to properly diagnosis your refrigerator you may need to disassemble it and I would suggest having a professional technician out to do so. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt

What does an O F fault code mean on a frigidaire refrigerator mean


Sounds like off to me. An open sensor will be displayed in either the ff display or the freezer display. if it is an open freezer sensor it will display in the freezer display. A communication failure will show as a SY CF, and a communication error will display a SY CE.

My frost free fridge freezer is working but flashing de on the front. I'd like to know what it means


Error codes are brand (and often model) specific. "de" likely indicates something in the defrost process, especially on G.E. Check for ice build-up in the freezer cooling coil. The control board would be suspect, but must be checked to confirm the precise fault.

Error message 5y ce


Good Afternoon Cheryl, I am happy to assist you. Could the error code possibly be SY CE? If so, error code SY CE, commonly refers to a communication error at power up. Let's try resetting the refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the refrigerator. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, than the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the control board or a faulty user interface board. In this regard, I would recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered.

5y CE code on frigidaire refrigerator water/ice dispenser


Dear Sue,
  • SY CE Error Codes is a very common issue : the display board isn't communicating with the main PCB.
  • Unfortunately, there is no way to test which board is causing the problem. That's why this error can be costly.
  • Try to just unplug the refrigerator for 15 minutes and plug it back in to see if the error goes away.
  • If the issue doesn't go away, then you'll need to replace one or two boards.
  • Usually the Main Control Board under the refrigerator behind the kick panel is the part that tends to fail.
  • If you Change the Main Board, it does not work; you gonna have to replace the Display Board.
  • Try buying these board at an online store that accept Returns without conditions up to a year. Go online and put the boards number into any major search engine. Put the # one by one. You will find many sellers. Carefully pick one and do you homework
Good luck and keep me posted please,
JP
