Question about Freezers

FF error code

I am getting a ER-FF which is for the fan so the fridge and freezer both don't cool. I called LG and they told me to unplug the unit for three hours. I plugged back in after 4 hours and had same problem. Called back and they told me that I had to wait longer and that was the only thing it could be (98%). After 15 hours still not working and no help from LG. Hello, I have exactly the same problem with my side by side fridge freezer, the FF and the ER, I thought someone would be able to give me diagnostic help over the phone and all would be well! I've taken out all the frozen stuff and put in a freezer in the garage but not sure what to do next? I'll switch it off overnight and see if it resets?

    Hello Francois,



    It was the fan in the freezer so you were right! Unfortunately, I couldn't fix it without an engineer but at least you found the problem for me!



    Thanks for that!

    Jude.

The ER-FF problem that you have is: ERROR -FAN FREEZER so it means that you have a problem with maybe the fan motor or if it's a bottom mount freezer maybe ice built up on the fan motor so it's blockin the fan motor.
Hope i helped u a little bit ! :)

Might need a freon top up. If the compressor is functioning there may be in sufficient freon . This can be topped up. A repairman/technician can diagnose this fairly quickly

My kenmore upright freezer has a digital display that shows alarms. it is showing a ff and a ce code. can you tell me what they mean?


You have a bad freezer fan and need to replace it. The fan is located behind the back wall INSIDE the freezer. The unit will warm up a little because the air wont circulate the way it is supposed to. You can try unplugging fridge for 30 seconds to reset the control board u can do it yourself although I don't recommend it because u need actual diagnosis but this seems it hope it helps try buying part from sears or amazon

Neff fridge/freezer has stopped cooling


pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$

I have a Artic Air White Reach In Freezer. It is not blowing cold air from he top where the cold air comes in. Freezer was at 60 degrees F. I turned the defrost switch to make sure it wasn't in...


Is the freezer itself getting cold.To blow cold air.the freezer should get cold/friezed.the cold air blows from freezer to fridge side.first the freezer side gets cold, then when the freezer side gets enough cool to its set cooling temperature, at that time the defrost cycle starts.In defrost cycle the fan in the freezer starts running and the cool air from freezer starts going to fridge side.There is a ventilation passage between fridge and freezer from where this cool air passes.---------------- If in your case, the freezer is getting proper cold, but its not blowing cold air from freezer to fridge, then possibility is that, there is a blockage in ventilations.But if ventilation its clear, then its defrost problem.First try manual defrost reset procedure. The procedure is as follows: ---- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. Then its defrost board problem. ------------------------- BUT if in your case, the freezer section itself is not getting cold, then the problem is compressor related.The compressor is the part which cools the freezer frost.In the compressor, there is a refrigerant to cool the freezer.If the compressor gets weak or the refrigerant gets low, then it will not cool the freezer, if the freezer is not cool then it will blow warm air from freezer to fridge, in defrost cycle.In that case, the compressor is faulty and its the cause of problem.------------ So you will have to first check , that is your freezer getting cold or not.as per that you can start the troubleshooting.------------------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Fridge not getting cold


unplug unit to "reset." pull unit out from wall and blow the coils out on the back of refrigerator. if that does not work- call service man to come check freon level.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice


if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

Weve lost the instruction manual for our Hotpoint Fridge-Freezer


Sorry, no secret. The fan wasnt working so we called an engineer who bypassed a sensor. Now it works perfectly again.
