    Mr. Fridgetech,

    I appreciate your very fast reply

    Thank you for all your help.



    I removed the control panel, pressed the reset button.

    There was only one button to press.

    Heard the fridge motor kick in, but nothing changed.



    The fridge still works, but will not make ice or discharge water

    and the dispencer panel still reads Er CO.



    I took some pictures, hopefully I can get them to you.

    Hope you can still help me out, you deserve a high rating



    Len

Er Co means: Short or open of lead wire
connecting between main PCB
and display PCB, transmission tr
and receiving part.
In other words, there is a communication problem between the main board on the back and the dispenser board. Could be a bad wire or connection on either board or one of the boards is bad. This link http://136.166.4.200/contents/Fridge/LRSC26922xx/LRSC26922xx_Service_Manual.pdf will give you a gerneric service manual for an LG fridge. It would be impossible for me to tell you for sure what the problem is without checking it but I would suspect the main board on the back. Hope this helps.

This first thing I would do is remove the panel on the back of the fridge to access the control board. It should be about half way up on the left hand side if you are looking at the back of the fridge. There should be four 1/4" screws to remove. In the middle of that board there should be a reset button. Press that button then let me know if that worked.

    p.s. I would suspect the main board if all wiring is ok.

SOURCE: Control Pad displays Er CO.

The Er Co error code signifies a communication error between the display control board on the freezer door and the main power board on the outer back panel of the refrigerator.

Check the wiring and connections between the low voltage interface and the main high voltage board.

If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover over the control board on the back of the refrigerator,
you can check the wiring connection on the main control board.

If this wiring connection is okay, check the wire harness connection under the hinge cover on the top of the left hand refrigerator door.
If these connections are okay, then you will need access the wire harness connection in the dispenser.

Control pad reads ER IF


er if means the ice fan is not running. it blows freezing air into the ice maker compartment from the freezer. unplug the refer for 24. these are susceptible to frost or ice forming in the blade of the fan and prevents it from spinning. unplugging it will let it thaw. ice is a big problem with this model.

I ahve a Kenmore Elite side by side refrigerator with watre and ice on the front and freezer below..there is a message Er IF on the dispaly and it will not make ice..this unit is 1 1/2 yrs old..the freezer...


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Error Code Er FF


ER FF - found in another post = Error Freezer Fan. Removed freezer back panel (inside freezer), defrosted ice build up around fan. Error message gone for now. Easy fix at midnight - 20 minutes. Will be looking into ice-up cause.
