I had the same error code. The problem was that the fan had frozen. I defrosted the fridge/freezer completely (it was ok for me cause I have a spare fridge). Your problem possibly is a frozen fan problem

I'm no major appliance repairman. However, after reading several posts, I investigated the issue further since I received an ER FF on the front panel. I have a LFX25960SW refrigerator. I pulled the top and bottom baskets out, and was able to take the back panel out from inside. There was a solid block of ice built up around both fans and wires. I took a blow dryer and gradually melted the ice around the fans and wires. Then, as I was able, I pulled the remaining ice chunks off of the wires. I put the thing back together and it cleared the message. My wife says no more LG appliances for us. :)

Sounds like the FF(Freezer Fan) is wearing out or is worn out. This assembly supplies the circulation for the freezer as well as the refrigerator. When is slows down or stops the circulation of cold air to the refrigerator is the first thing that is effected. The minimum cost to replace this assembly is around $300.00

The error code appears when there is an abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for Freezer. It circulates cold air from the freezer to the fridge to allow cooling. Check the motor wiring harness for poor connections. If the motor is not working at all, you need to replace it.
To remove the fan and motor assembly:
icemaker, remove the icemaker first).
unscrewing phillips head screws.
and disassembling the shroud.

Testimonial: "thanks, that made it a lot easier"
I did this and it worked great (so far - 3 days now...). It took me a while to figure out, so here are some tips.
The panel is inside the freezer, the back wall. You should take off the door, the ice maker, all the shelves and the left rail to get it out. It will then lift up and pull forward.
I removed 3 bolts on either side of the door to remove it -- not sure if that's best/easiest, but it worked fine.
You need to remove all the shelves and the center piece that drops from the freezer ceiling and sits on 2 metal rails -- it provides the slider for the shelf on the right. Lift it up from the two metal rails and slide the bottom to the right to dislodge it. The top just fits into a depression in the ceiling of the freezer and the bottom has notches that line up with the metal rails. The metal rails pop up -- just lever a bit with a slotted screw driver on one end.
There are 3 phillips head screws that hold the left rail (whatever the thing is that the door slides on). Remove those and pull away from the wall and forward. There are two tabs at the back of the rail that will pull free with a tug.
The ice maker has 2 screws on top, one below and is plugged in. You only need loosen the top screws, then remove the bottom one and pull the plug free (which was kind of hard). The plug is in an insert in the back panel and I just left it in place and removed the insert from the back panel using a slotted screw driver in the small gaps around the edges. Lift the ice maker up and off the top screws and it's out.
There's one screw holding the middle of the back panel on -- remove that and pull up and forward to remove the panel. Make your cut and reverse all this and you're good to go.
