Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Matthew, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
Error code EF commonly refers to an evaporator fan error. Either the evaporator fan is not spinning fast enough or not at all. It is possible that there is something contacting the fan blade, which this will trigger the error code as well. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your appliance.

CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR YOUR EVAPORATOR FAN RUNNING (INSIDE MOTOR). IF IT IS NOT RUNNING ... AND YOUR COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING. THE MOTOR OR DEFROST TEMENATION SWICTH COULD BE DEFECTIVE. IF NOTHING IS RUNNING ... TRY TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER(USUALLY LOCATED WHERE YOUR COLD CONTROLS ARE) YOU SHOULD SEE A SMALL HOLE WHERE YOU CAN MANUALLY TURN THE TIMER WITH A SCREW DRIVER.IT CAN ONLY TURN IN ONE DIRECTION. IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. CHECK TO SEE IF COMPRESSOR IN THE BACK IS RUNNING ... IF IT ISNT AND IS "HOT" (BE CAREFULL) SEE IF THE CONDENSER MOTOR NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING ... IF NOT ... THE COND. MOTOR IS BAD ... THAT MOTOR RUNS IF POWER IS GOING TO THE COMPRESSOR ALWAYS. IF COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND NOT RUNNING AND COND. FAN IS RUNNING .... UN PLUG FRIG AND WAIT TILL COMPRESSOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. THESE COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR IF IT SHORT CYCLES.IT SOMETIMES GETS SO HOT IT DOES TAKE HOURS TO COOL OFF. THERE IS ALSO A DEFROST-TERMINATION SWITCH THAT CAN GO BAD. CONSULT A LICSESED FACTORY CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GIVE YOU A FIXED-PRICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST.

Have you noticed any ice built up on the rear freezer wall? it is very likely that you have a defrost problem situation,IE: Heater,Defrost Thermostat,Defrost Timer any failure in these components will cause an icing problem and therefore you will not get sufficient air flow to the Food Compartment

If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment you have a defrost problem. When the freezer coil does not defrost the refrigerator does not get air for cooling.

there is one of two thing that could be going wrong here ; you may have a bad evap fan mtr and control board or yourr damper is not opening properly. i would say you have the later of the two due to the fact the rf is still making ice. one thing that causes this issue is too much weight in the door causing the door to lean and not trigger in door light switch or the switch itself is damaged. the door hinge and camm assembly can be adjusted from the bottow using a standard socket set

Success!! I just bought a Frigidaire Gallery series side by side model # GLHS39EPJW0, in Canada. My temp readout was in F and I would like Celcius. The hidden button between the readouts I could feel, but it didn't work. However, holding the Fridge readout "up" and then pushing the Freezer readout "up" three times switched me from F to C on the fridge side. I repeated this but pushed the freezer "up" twice and the freezer readout changed to C. Thanks for the info - it helped out when Frigidaire couldn't.

Hello p_shields123 - Could the actual error code display be "ICE T3"? If so, it typically indicates that the TH3 thermistor in the Fresh Food Ice Maker compartment is shorted or open. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to move forward accurately and to properly assist with the repairs.
