Question about Frigidaire FGUN2642LF

Open Question

FGUN2642LF "SY ER" error codes, not cooling

Fridge was delivered today. It was a repaired model that had been returned to the store and sent off for a fix. Service invoices indicate it was repaired and a part was ordered, but does not specify what the part was. The freezer temp appears to be slowly falling and is now down to 37F, but the fridge temp appears to be slowly climbing and stays above 70F. I can hear the fan running in the bottom by the condenser and compressor, but that's it. I hear a random intermittent clicking in the upper-middle area in the back but I don't see any way to access that area. I think that's the evaporator fan clicking on. Earliest they can get a repair tech out here is 4 days away due to NYE holiday. I'm a very capable DIY on most things, so I'm confident if it's something simple I can handle it myself. I'm not afraid to get into it myself, but any tips for what I should be disassembling or anything else would be helpful.

SOURCE: Fridge and Freezer working intermittently; not getting cold and making a vibrating sound

Dave, what you are hearing is the overload kicking out on the compressor. It's one of two things, either the compressor is failing or PTC (overload, relay) is going bad. I haven't seen too many PTC's fail on Frigidaire, but I have seen a lot of compressors failing. Your refrigerator will have a 5 year warranty, parts and labor if the compressor is at fault. You would have to do some tests on the compressor to determine which one is at fault. If you have a clamp on ammeter you can see how many amps the compressor is drawing during start and run. The compressor should have a label on it with the amperage information. You could just replace the PTC, part number 218721119 and see if the problem goes away but you could be throwing away money here if the compressor is the problem. With out being there, my guess would be the compressor itself. Catriver...post back.

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.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Model # FRS23R4A - Not cooling

wihtout replacing the relay there really isnt any way to tell if its the compressor or the relay. the relay is veyr inexpensive in comparison to the compressor usually less than 70 bucks. and the best part is you can replace it yourself as opposed to paying a service company. this is the part number 218721113 and it prices at 38 dollars thru  sears.com.
once you replace the part if the compressor starts you should be ok. if it doesnt start then you will need to call a service company to replae the compressor or look at replaing the refrig. if the unit is less than 5 years old it may be under warranty for the compressor so check into that first. if I can be of further assistance dont hesitate to ask. thanks Peyton

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.

What does error code sy ef mean ?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an SY EF code on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGUN2642LF. This code states there is a system error code that deals with the evaporator fan. This could also be a possible false error code. I suggest you reset your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power is restored, you will need to press the "Mute Sounds" button to stop the power failure alert. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My frigidaire is displaying SY CF


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.

After power outage the fridge was displaying codes SY and EF I have Frigidaire model number FGHS2365KF1. Any thoughts?????


Hi.

SY: Defective evaporator system. Check evaporator fan, thermostat and heater.

EF: Evaporator Fan defective. Test and eventually replace the evaporator fan.

The problem is likely the evaporator fan. Before replacing the fan test the other parts comprised in the evaporator system.

Here a tip explaining how to test such parts with a similar fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is more or less the same with your model.

Here parts and diagrams for your model.

Generally you can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:

Kenmore Elite Trio Fridge - Getting ER F5 error on display


Er-FS error code: Failure of freezer sensor.
I have been finding the fuseable link in the defrost system on these models open preventing the defrost cycle.
This would involve removing the freezer back panel and removing the sensor and fuse from the evaporator.
It's just a plug in.

I faced the same problem for Kenmore elite Trio Model # 795.77543600 bottom freezer refrigerator. The issue as pointed out by Medeer on fixya.com, turned out to be the part called component assembly, part number 6615JB2005H. I got this replaced yesterday but for 4 hours I did not notice any cooling... so I thought it did not work.... but then in the morning I notice that the issue has been resolved, the refrigerator is cold and there is no eR dH error message. Thanks to all who shared on this site.
