SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator will not cool. Freezer works

5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

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

    SOURCE: my frigidaire is displaying SY CF

    Hello Angela Clark - Typically error code SY CF indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be check and diagnose. Depending on the diagnoses the main control board may need replacing.

    Error Code SY CF wire in ice caddy is exposed and when I removed the ice caddy, the code came up and now the fridge and freezer will not cool.


    In some model years, the defrost timer was installed in the icemaker. So, even if the icemaker itself is inoperable, it must remain plugged in to the unit to operated the compressor.

    Fix my problem get sy cf on my display


    Hello Eric espy, thanks for your post!

    From my understanding you used the icemaker on your Frigidaire refrigerator and now have a code of "SY CF" on the display. That code of "SY CF" stands for communication failure after power up. This could be a possible communication error between the UIB (User Interface Board) and main control board. I would suggest performing a reset, which should clear any false error codes. If you continue to receive the error I would suggest contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This may help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. -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.

    Will the fridge still work with code sy cf


    Hello Friend, thank you for your post!

    If you are getting an error code SY CF, it typically means that your refrigerator has detected an error between the main control board and the user interface (the control on the Freezer door). A tech would typically check the communication wiring between both parts to determine the cause of the error code. If the wiring is correct, then more than likely you are looking at a faulty main control board or user interface.

    In the meantime, you may try resetting your refrigerator by disconnecting the power from it for up to ten minutes. You can do this by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. This often clears most false-error codes. Hope this helps! - Z

    How to fix Sy cf code


    Good Afternoon Friend,

    I understand that you are receiving an "SY CF" error code on your Frigidaire refrigerator. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power. 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. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please supply the model number of your refrigerator. Typically, you can find this number inside the refrigerator on the cabinet all. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

    Frigidaire SY CF issues


    Good Morning Jack, thank you for your question!

    Typically error code SY CF indicates that your refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. The error code may possibly continue after replacing the part you have ordered. With this error code, a professional would need to check wiring between the main control board and user interface board. After proper diagnoses and if the error continues, the main control board may need replacing. Hope this information helps to some degree!
