Above is the latest service sheet to do with your machine.

That SY ER is the SYtem EvapoRator Fault. This usually means there is NOT enough air flow over the sensor, this can mean a faulty sensor, or fan.. you need to check.

In my professional opinion you should get a service tech to call, contact your head or local Frigidaire offic, and ask them for a referral to an authorized service agent. When there then ask for a "Quote" as to the repair, this way you can make an informed decision.

usually though a repair such as this shouldn't be too costly, however it may just be the tip of an underlying condition, which is why i suggested the professional.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned warmer which makes REF. colder or vice versa.
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

We have an electrolux fridge model EI27BS26JS3. I was getting ice from the ice dispenser and it sparked and then shut off! It came back on 15 seconds later with a code of SY CF. Not staying cool e


My question is did you see where the sparks came from and did you smell something when it burned I would think that you may have a compressor start relay that has shorted out that happens sometimes. If so we can get a replacement 3 N 1 with run capacitor and replace the whole thing in one rewire providing the compressor has not shorted out

Error Code SY CF wire in ice caddy is exposed and when I removed the ice caddy, the code came up and now the fridge and freezer will not cool.


In some model years, the defrost timer was installed in the icemaker. So, even if the icemaker itself is inoperable, it must remain plugged in to the unit to operated the compressor.

Fix my problem get sy cf on my display


Hello Eric espy, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you used the icemaker on your Frigidaire refrigerator and now have a code of "SY CF" on the display. That code of "SY CF" stands for communication failure after power up. This could be a possible communication error between the UIB (User Interface Board) and main control board. I would suggest performing a reset, which should clear any false error codes. If you continue to receive the error I would suggest contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This may help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. -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.

Will the fridge still work with code sy cf


Hello Friend, thank you for your post!

If you are getting an error code SY CF, it typically means that your refrigerator has detected an error between the main control board and the user interface (the control on the Freezer door). A tech would typically check the communication wiring between both parts to determine the cause of the error code. If the wiring is correct, then more than likely you are looking at a faulty main control board or user interface.

In the meantime, you may try resetting your refrigerator by disconnecting the power from it for up to ten minutes. You can do this by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. This often clears most false-error codes. Hope this helps! - Z

Frigidaire SY CF issues


Good Morning Jack, thank you for your question!

Typically error code SY CF indicates that your refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. The error code may possibly continue after replacing the part you have ordered. With this error code, a professional would need to check wiring between the main control board and user interface board. After proper diagnoses and if the error continues, the main control board may need replacing. Hope this information helps to some degree!
