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.

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.

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.
