Question about Frigidaire FGHB2844L (27.8 cu. ft.) French Door Refrigerator
I have a frididaire fridge and every night at 12am or so the alarm goes off,I reset it and roughly 2to3 hours later it goes off again. Sometimes after its reset it displays the sy ce code,but not always. Day before yersterday I turned the breaker off for about 10mins.and the alarm didn't go off that night at all. Last night started again.
Good Afternoon Johnny, thank you for your inquiry! Error code SY CE, commonly refers to a communication error at power up. Let's try resetting the refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on the unit. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, than the unit could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the control board or a faulty user interface board. In this regard, I would recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered.

SOURCE: fridge smell
check the pipes at the back of the fridge, it could be that one of the pipes has a crack and is leaking gas or oil. If not check the inside of the fride for a brown oily residue. This indicates a leak. Don't turn the fridge back on becasue if the oil and gas mix then the fridge will no longer be usable. If you find either of these get an engineer to fix the problem.

Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.

All of your cooling coils on this model are located in the freezer. If you are cold enough in the freezer your problem is air flow to the fresh food section.
- There is fan behind the back wall of the freezer, be sure that is running.
- Look for frost build up on the back wall of the freezer, if present we have a defrost problem
- look for the duct or channels between the floor and freezer and top of the refrigerator they could be blocked with ice, if so we have a drain problem.
Let me know what you find and I will help you from there.

The thing you were "spinning" was the defrost timer, not a circuit breaker. The problem may be you have a shorted defrost heater; It is on a timer that runs it for 30 minutes every 8 hours of compressor use.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your post, Carol!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY CE" and the lights are not working. A "SY CE" error code stands for a communication error at start up. This might be a miscommunication within your refrigerator and I would recommend performing a reset in order to correct the issue. To reset your refrigerator you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue you may need to change your control panel or a wiring harness. In order to properly diagnosis your refrigerator you may need to disassemble it and I would suggest having a professional technician out to do so. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY CE" and you would like to know the meaning. The error code "SY CE" stands for communication error at power up. This could be an issue with your wiring harness, main control board, or user interface board. I would recommend performing a reset on your refrigerator and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for at least ten minutes. If that does not correct your issue I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Hello Suzanne, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY EF". An "SY EF" code stands for an evaporator fan circuit failure. This could also be a miscommunication with your refrigerator and I would advise performing a reset on your refrigerator. You can reset it by disconnecting the power plug from the outlet for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue you may need to replace your main control board or a wiring harness. For proper disassembly and repair of your refrigerator I would recommend having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I see that you are having issues with your Electrolux refrigerator displaying a code of "59-CE" and nothing is working. That is not a valid error code. However, "CE" stands for a communication error and this can be cleared out by a reset on your refrigerator. In order to reset your refrigerator you can disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If the reset does not help correct your issue it could be a possible problem with your main control panel or UIB (User Interface Board). I would recommend having a technician out to your home to perform a diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any part purchases that are not needed for a repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying "5Y CE". I have researched that code and believe it is an error code of "SY CE" which means a communication error after power up. I would recommend resetting your refrigerator and you can do that by disconnecting power from your appliance for ten minutes.
If that does not help correct the issue it could be a faulty main control board or user interface board. I would consult with a technician to come out and provide an accurate diagnosis. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Hello Debbie Lee - Typically error code SY CE indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication error at power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to check the wiring between main control board and user interface. Depending on the diagnoses, either or will need placing.
