Kenmore Elite Trio Model 795.7757960 - Error Code 'IF'

Hi,

My refrigerator has the error code 'IF' on the front panel. We are unable to get ice or water within 3 minutes of unplugging and plugging it back in. Also, the temperature within the refrigerator and freezer seems warmer than normal.

What is the problem and how can I repair it?

Thank you.

    I am having the same error code, last week sears came out and replaced a curcuit board as a factory recall/ upgrade for "energy rating" reasons. I am calling them and asking which board was replaced. I will add the info asap.

    I have the DOE recall on my Trio, Sears did the upgrade and now I get ER IF. Sears is returning to install the third board. Can the quality be this bad?

    sears cannot tell me at this time which board they sent to my home....they say they will have the tech call me tomorrow to tell me and I will pass it along.

  • msjoan1223 Mar 24, 2009

    Code IF is ... ice fan...ie the fan in the ice maker is frozen. This is typically the ice fan sensor and easy to replace. The recommended procedure is to unplug the unit for 3-4 hours to allow the fan to thaw. They say this should stop the problem and it should not reoccur. They still will not tell me which board reads the information from the ice fan sensor, but I can tell you it was the main board that was replaced last week in my unit due to "energy efficiency" issues. They did slip and tell me it was the ice maker that caused the recall.

I have the same problem with this refrigerator. It looks like Sears Parts Direct sells all the parts for this unit except for the printed circuit board and temperature control switches. I called my local repairman and set up an appointment. He called back to cancel his appointment because he was also unable to get the electronics. Were you able to fix your unit? What did you replace?

I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Model 795.77563600. The front digital panel has an error code er if. I understand this means that I have a problem with the ice maker fan. Where is the fan located...


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.

Kenmore elite trio refridgerator with an error code ER FF


ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message2.gif will be displayed. This fridge2.gif is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer2.gif where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps circulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.

The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator2.gif which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.

Good luck
