Hello Angela Clark - Typically error code SY CF indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be check and diagnose. Depending on the diagnoses the main control board may need replacing.

SOURCE: Freezer losing temp... intermittent buzzing sound

Either the start device for the compressor is bad or the compressor has died. The easiest way to tell is to replace the start device. It cost around 30-40 bucks and the part number for it is 218721119. In most of these cases its just a bad start device. The start device is located on the side of the compressor in the bottom back of the unit. It will have a capacitor attached to it that you will want to keep and stick on the new one. If you need anymore help just let me know. Good Luck!

Locate the defrost timer and rotate the dial a small amount clockwise. If the compressor starts the timer should be replaced. If the compressor does not start check the temperature control. It may be bad, if it is bad try jumpering the thermostat wires. If it starts and runs the thermostat is bad. Replace the thermostat.

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.

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!
