SOURCE: Error code ER FF
The error indicates the freezer fan is not functioning properly. The
fan supplies cold air to the refrigerator that is why it seems warmer.
The fan may be frozen, try unplugging it for a few hours to let it thaw. Also check to see if something may have gotten into the vent holes in the freezer that could be blocking the fan from turning.

I fixed it. ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message will be displayed. This fridge is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps cirulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.
The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.
This is going to be an annual chore if I want to keep this refrigerator. We should all ban together and call for a recall.

I'm no major appliance repairman. However, after reading several posts, I investigated the issue further since I received an ER FF on the front panel. I have a LFX25960SW refrigerator. I pulled the top and bottom baskets out, and was able to take the back panel out from inside. There was a solid block of ice built up around both fans and wires. I took a blow dryer and gradually melted the ice around the fans and wires. Then, as I was able, I pulled the remaining ice chunks off of the wires. I put the thing back together and it cleared the message. My wife says no more LG appliances for us. :)

I did this and it worked great (so far - 3 days now...). It took me a while to figure out, so here are some tips.
The panel is inside the freezer, the back wall. You should take off the door, the ice maker, all the shelves and the left rail to get it out. It will then lift up and pull forward.
I removed 3 bolts on either side of the door to remove it -- not sure if that's best/easiest, but it worked fine.
You need to remove all the shelves and the center piece that drops from the freezer ceiling and sits on 2 metal rails -- it provides the slider for the shelf on the right. Lift it up from the two metal rails and slide the bottom to the right to dislodge it. The top just fits into a depression in the ceiling of the freezer and the bottom has notches that line up with the metal rails. The metal rails pop up -- just lever a bit with a slotted screw driver on one end.
There are 3 phillips head screws that hold the left rail (whatever the thing is that the door slides on). Remove those and pull away from the wall and forward. There are two tabs at the back of the rail that will pull free with a tug.
The ice maker has 2 screws on top, one below and is plugged in. You only need loosen the top screws, then remove the bottom one and pull the plug free (which was kind of hard). The plug is in an insert in the back panel and I just left it in place and removed the insert from the back panel using a slotted screw driver in the small gaps around the edges. Lift the ice maker up and off the top screws and it's out.
There's one screw holding the middle of the back panel on -- remove that and pull up and forward to remove the panel. Make your cut and reverse all this and you're good to go.
