Getting Er 1F message on control panel and water/ice dispenser not working. Nothing happens when trying to operate control panel. What should I do?


You can unplug the unit for 60 seconds. It will temporarily allow you to access the controls. Er1F error is the ice maker fan error. It either means you have frost buildup hitting the fan or the pcb is not sensing the feedback from the fan. Try defrosting the ice from the freezer evap area, as in overnight if you have another place to store your food. If this resolves the problem then it was just ice or frost. If not then it is the motor that needs to be replaced.

Low voltage at compressor!


My parts lookup too has no images available for you refrig but i believe it to be a GE Profile with a fresh food fan (and air duct down the center of the fresh food side). All fan motors are 12vdc and run off the Lowvoltage side of motherboard. i assume you are checking voltage to comp from motherboard? How did you check relay?? Have you axcessed motherboard?? On the top of (I say top-- i belive its mounted horiz on yours but all the small wires are on the right) is all the low voltage fan motor, damper, control wiring On the bottom (or the left) side of the motherboard is the larger line voltage wiring. The connector with 3 wires is labeled def -- comp---line it should be blue. Try jumping L1 to comp. ((Just so ya know Def will energize the def heater regardless of compartment temp it does have a bimetal but it only a safety set at 100deg in case relay on board welds shut---it monitor evap compartment, frz, fresh food, (two seperate in FF) in your model))

Evap fan runs constantly


The fan should run when the compressor runs.

Voltage to evap fan 94v not working runs slow @ 120v


Hi, I deal with evaporator motors on a day to day basis.If the motor is running but not up to full speed, the inner windings of the motor are going out. If the motor runs as you say, is it getting only 94 volts to it? If this is the case, check the incoming voltage to the unit itself. Check to see on the schematics what is between the motor where you may be loosing your voltage. Defrost thermostat, or timer. Check power to the timer first and get back to me. The defrost thermostat supplies power to the fan when the evaporator temperature gets cold enough and the contacts will close and send power to one side of the motor. If it is going bad, it will cause you to loose part or all of the voltage. If you have a meter, check this. It is round and sealed with 2 terminals on it. If it is cold enough, you can check the leads to ground and see if you are getting less then 120 volts coming out the motor side. If so, replace the thermostat. Please keep me posted.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS Be safe around electricity. Also, this defrost stat snaps around a evap. line.

Door display reads ER FF


All error codes will display "ER" on the left side - that simply means error. In your case your error code is FF - which stands for freezer fan, or in technical terms, evap fan. Open your freezer and look for the vents where cool air blows out - do you feel any air coming out, do you hear the fan ? It is possible your evap fan stopped working or excessive frost around it - are you able to turn off unit and remove the back panel of your freezer held by screws, look for any excessive frost or anything blocking the evap fan - if there is no objects or frost blocking fan, then you have need to call service and have them replace your evaporator fan assembly - also note if your freezer fan is not working, then you won't get any cooling to either your freezer or your refrigerator - If you notice excessive frost and see that it is preventing your fan from operating you can use a blow dryer and defrost manually and see if it works again afterwards - if problem returns eventually then you have an auto defrost problem you will have to get it serviced and check the control board and defrost timer + components. Make sure you turn off refrigerator and unplug when checking things yourself at the back - if you are not comfortable doing this call service.

Compressor & Evap. Fan both work for 12 hours then evap stops


I believe that because defrost is done by the mother control board this is why this is happening the part of the board that controls defrost is malfunctioning and the only way to resolve the problem is to replace the mother board part number WR55X10656 You can find the replacement board at these places below.

Heyy!!! A evap fan motor works in conjuction with compressor and condenser fan. If you purchased the unit new, then it should have a electrical schematic, post this, or you can interpret sketch, it will show you the details on what controls it. You can also sniff this motor and check it is burnt out. And by pass the leads to motor and check if it operates properly, replace if bad. Post your results if you want further help....Regards fmauka
