Thanks Cindy, we had a repairman here, he did not look at the back of the refrigerator. He said the code meant we need a new control board for $475. I don't hear the fans blowing

My Frigidaire refrigerator that is in our cold garage has an error code of 5Y on the freezer side and EF on the frige side. What does this mean?


5Y ef means evaporator fan issue. Could be wiring to the evap fan as well.

From the site: "I had a 5y ef error and it ended up being the control board."

Here's a link to a really good video:

My error code says 5Y on freezer and EF on frig? What does this mean?


This error code is most often linked to a defective evaporator fan motor. This is the fan located in the freezer, behind the back wall.

My refrigerator is not keeping temp and there is a code on the water/ice machine reads S(or 5)y EF. What does this code indicate?


If I'm not mistaken EF error code stands for Evaporator Fan which is the fan motor in the back of the freezer section. That would explain the noise you heard. The fan could possibly be frozen or stuck or the motor actually went bad and needs replaced. Without that fan running you will get very little cooling.

What do the error codes 5Y and EF mean


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are getting error code SY EF, it typically indicates that your refrigerator has detected a failure with the evaporator fan circuit. Let's try resetting your refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is good wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. If the error code does not clear, at this point it is best to reach out to professional to check the wiring between the main control board and evaporator fan. Hope this helps! - Z

What does the error code 5y EF mean on my Frigidaire refrigerator


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an "SY EF" code on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB. The "SY EF" code stands for system error with the evaporator fan. This possibly means that there is something going on with your evaporator fan or it could possibly be a false error code. . I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. 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 appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

What is code 5y and ef


Hi M - I am happy to assist you! Error codes SY/EF is commonly refer to a failure with the evaporator fan circuit. Let's try resetting the refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then more than likely there is a potential wiring failure between the main control board and evaporator fan. In this regard, I would personally suggest to reaching out to a repair tech to further evaluate and repair you appliance. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.
