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

Model EW23CS65GS. What does 5b error code indicate?


Hello Dwaine, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Electrolux refrigerator is displaying an error code of 5b and you would like to know if this is a main board failure. I am not showing 5b as a valid error code; however, there is an error code of Sb. This means Sabbath mode and you can turn it off by pressing "-" on the freezer temp side and "+" on the fridge temp side. This should turn off the Sabbath mode.
I have also included a link to the manual for the refrigerator EW23CS65GS. On page 13 you will see Sabbath mode feature and the instructions on how to disable it. I hope this information is helpful to you. -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.

My frigidaire gallery refrigerator model number DGUS2645LF3 is showing an error code "5b" and nothing inside works.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are in the Sabbath Mode.

The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the refrigerator and its controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community.
Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding "?" on freezer temp and "?" on refrigerator temp for five seconds. The display shows "Sb" while in Sabbath mode.
In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, for example due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound intermittently for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.
If this does not solve the problem you have a bad control board.

The control panal on freezer door says 56-56 will not despence water or ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving a 56 56 code on the display of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# GLHS269ZDB. I also see that it is not dispensing ice or water, even though you have reset it by unplugging it. The 56 56 is actually SB SB. This tells me that your refrigerator is in Sabbath mode. To exit the Sabbath mode, press and hold the down arrow and the plus sign, simultaneously for 5-10 seconds or until the display changes. 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.

5b error code


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator displays an Sb on your panel. If the numbers are showing Sb, this tells me it is in the Sabbath mode. To get out of this mode you will need to press and hold the down arrow on the freezer side and the up arrow on the refrigerator side simultaneously for 5-10 seconds. If this does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance. You can do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and check the control panel as well as the ice dispenser and lights. 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.

Control panel is locked up and displaying the numbers 56 56. Both compartment lights are out, water and ice not dispensing. Could it just be a door switch?

Control panel on the front of the door on my Kenmore upright freezer show an Sb. Can't get it to do anything else!!


This code represents a malfunction. Call frigidaire and find out what that code means. Your manual should tell you as we'll.
