SOURCE: model rs2533sw panel not reseting after being unplugged

I had the same problem (panel would not start up - just flashed one dash after a power outage).

The solution above: pressing the top two buttons for 12 seconds (Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons) reset the panel and everything is working fine now.

Thank You!

SOURCE: EF error code on frigidaire

My Frigidaire also got the dreaded E-F error code and stopped cooling. Technician over the phone told me to unplug it for 5 minutes and then plug it back in to see if the control board would reset itself. Did that with no luck. Unplugged the refrigerator last night while I tranferred my food to a spare fridge in the garage. Plugged the fridge back in this morning (9hrs later) and it works fine with no error codes. It looks like the control board has reset itself but how long it takes...I dont know. 10.. maybe 15 minutes? Well more than 5 at least. Guy over the phone told me that you can buy DRY ICE at a local grocery store and put it some in your freezer and a little bit in the frigdge to keep the food cold for a day. I had a spare fridge but I thought that was a good tip for anyone that needs to buy time for a tech to come repair the fridge. I had just bought $300 in groceries the night before so that tip would have come in handy if I did not have the spare fridge. I have no idea what the EF error was for but it's been 5 hours since I plugged my fridge back in and it's running fine so I'll cross my fingers. Got around to cleaning the fridge and plugging in a surge protector too. Hope this post helps someone out there.

SOURCE: frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud

Sounds like the start relay or start capacitor has failed.

Unplug the unit until you can get a replacement or the compressor will be ruined (if it's not already.).

PTC start relay is P/N 218721108 $36.49
Capacitor is P/N 218909901 $7.99

Above is a link for your user manual. to download. copy past to browser.

Above is the latest service sheet to do with your machine.

That SY ER is the SYtem EvapoRator Fault. This usually means there is NOT enough air flow over the sensor, this can mean a faulty sensor, or fan.. you need to check.

In my professional opinion you should get a service tech to call, contact your head or local Frigidaire offic, and ask them for a referral to an authorized service agent. When there then ask for a "Quote" as to the repair, this way you can make an informed decision.

usually though a repair such as this shouldn't be too costly, however it may just be the tip of an underlying condition, which is why i suggested the professional.

I have replaced the evaporator fan and the main board and am still getting the ef error code


Hi, your unit has a loose harness behind the fan motor at the wall. Manually push in every wire to assure a good connection, the error you have is that the control can't sense the fan speed. Unplug the unit when you do this to assure the computer can see and sense the fan. Failure to unplug first will not work. Good Luck.... PS once fixed use a sealant to keep these connection tight and clean.

What do the error codes 5Y and EF mean


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are getting error code SY EF, it typically indicates that your refrigerator has detected a failure with the evaporator fan circuit. Let's try resetting your refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is good wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. If the error code does not clear, at this point it is best to reach out to professional to check the wiring between the main control board and evaporator fan. Hope this helps! - Z

Electrolux PHSC39EESS5 refrigerator: EF code, but evaporator fan is working (usually). sometimes at restart, compressor and fan will start, then stop after 1 minute. is there other reason for EF error...


Hi,

When this happens your fans is getting the incorrect information on how to run, on some occasions both the fan and control to the fridge had to be replaced at the same time. Disconnect the evaporator fan motor and run the unit as normal. If the computer allows the compressor to run at least five mins, just replace the fan motor, if not replace both.
Control board is under the unit Part# 241511102 (only if needed)
Parts number for fan motor P#241509402 both of these parts should be available through your local part house or REPAIR CLINIC, to avoid shipping cost and any return issue you may have.
I hope this helps, good luck

What is code 5y and ef


Hi M - I am happy to assist you! Error codes SY/EF is commonly refer to a failure with the evaporator fan circuit. Let's try resetting the refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then more than likely there is a potential wiring failure between the main control board and evaporator fan. In this regard, I would personally suggest to reaching out to a repair tech to further evaluate and repair you appliance. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

EF code comes up.


Hi! Try this step for it usually works and has a good chance of success. Try to unplug your frigidaire from power source and leave it for a couple of hours or more. Try plugging it again and the system should reset itself. To keep your food cool inside the freezer while unplugged try to get some dry ice and put it in. Hope this helps and have a good one!
