Whirlpool Refrigerator Error Code: Flashing 6 on the fridge display
Condition: The 6th Sense technology is activated - If you put warm food in the refrigerator or leave the door open, the 6th Sense technology kicks on to return the refrigerator to the set temperature. The flashing 6 should go away once it gets back to the right temperature.
Part or Parts: Allow fridge to get back to temp on its own (no parts required) Whirlpool Refrigerator Error Code: 6 on the fridge display
Condition: Computer error
Check: Remove power for 5 minutes
Part or Parts: If code returns replace mother board
The ER 1F code usually means that there is a problem with the ice compartment fan, the ice maker motor or one of the control boards (the one for the ice maker or the main control unit). You can try resetting the refrigerator by leaving it unplugged for a day. Next check for ice build up on the fan that is blocking it from turning. Usually, if the fan hasn't been turning, you will have to at minimum replace the motor. It will burn out trying to force the fan to turn.
Leaving it unplugged for 2 weeks should not have caused any problems. The fridge may have been on a defrost cycle. As the unit is unlikely to have had any frost, it should have started refrigerating about 15 to 25 minutes after plugging it in.
"For the above error codes, Power the unit off, and then unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Plug in and power on. If the issue persists, please contact customer service."
If you unplug it you must wait for at least 15 minutes before restarting the unit. This goes for any refrigerator so the coolant system can equalize and the compressor will restart.
There are 3 components involved with this error code. The defrost thermistor, The defrost thermostat and the main control board. Most likely you have defrost thermistor or themostat that is open and the compressor will NOT start because the power for the comprssor has been interrupted by the automatic defrost cycle and nothing is telling the unit that it has completed the automatic defrost cycle so the unit does not restart. The thermistor and the thermostat would be #1 on troubleshooting list. The thermistor will have varied resistance 10,000 Ohms and under and the thermostat is supposed to be OPEN / have continuity above 60 deg F and closed below 60 Deg F. .
If you need parts information I need your COMPLETE model number (Not Kenmore elite)
Example would be 110.11112222 (not your model number and all numbers willmost likely be different) I think your model number will start with 795.something because this unit was made by LG.
EF on the Electrolux refrigerator digital display means "evaporator
The long answer is, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something
wrong with your Electrolux refrigerator.
Turn the power off on
the digital display and carefully unplug the refrigerator from the
power source. Leave the refrigerator unplugged for three to five
minutes. Plug the refrigerator back in and give the refrigerator a few
minutes then turn the power button back on. Press the default button on
the display and see if the EF code goes away.
Electrolux recommends that you do not plug the refrigerator into an
outlet that has a reset button. If your refrigerator is plugged into one
of these outlets, try plugging it into another outlet and see if the
refrigerator resets itself.
Your refrigerator is equipped with an onboard diagnostic system. If the diagnostic
system detects a fault, it will display a specific line segment on you refrigerators
LED display. If your refrigerator is displaying an error code, please note the
error code, and reset the refrigerator by unplugging the refrigerator for 30
seconds. When the refrigerator is plugged in, it performs a self diagnostic
check of the various sensors and functions. If the error code reappears your
refrigerator will require service. Please click the "Create Online Service
Request" button below this article to initiate the service process. After
a power outage the display panel may start blinking "88 88." If you
unplug the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in the display will return
to normal operation after several hours. The power outage/surge can cause a
communication error between the circuit boards in the unit. It can take several
hours for these boards to stabilize.
If the display does not reset, go to the Samsung Support link above, enter your model number, and follow the prompts to request a service ticket.
Good luck, and if this helps, please rate my answer!
On some models you have a mother board located on the back outer section of the refrigerator that can be faulty. There is a tech sheet located behind the kick plate or under the front of the ref bottom to refer to. If someone olays with the digital controls you may have to reprogram the mother board, which is explained in the tech sheet.
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.
