Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

Erro code 1F

Here I am again on 6/17/09, To recap, second unit in 2yrs 4 months, first one lasted 5 months with numerous icamaker and mainboard issues. Second one worked for 14 months and then started having error codes come up. No I didn't get rid of the refridgerator as I threatened although I should have. I've had the 1F error code for a week, the serviceman came today. I gave him the paperwork from the September visit and he called LG. Since the fan was replaced as was the one wall of the freezer last September, LG has told him the mainboard needs to be replaced now. In reading some of the posts it seems it should have been replaced with the fan. So here I am again with a $3000 POS aka LG cabinet depth french. Anyone want a free refridgerator all you have to do is pick it up.

    I don't think it is an outlet problem. The house is 3 yrs old, no other electrical issues. This is a known issue with this model, looking at the posts on this site, it is loaded with icemaker and mainboard issues. According to a LG support official I spoke to last year, this model was pushed out early, to compete with the GE model, without adequate QC. But, could it be possible that fluctuating current at the outlet could disrupt the mainboard of the unit? If so then there are a WHOLE lot of people with electrical problems! :)

I did notice the relays on the replacement boards are made by another manufactuer than my original board and they at least look better for whats that worth. I have a feeling these boards are a fast moving parts for andrewselectronics.com and LGUSA.com.They should extend warranty for such a "buggy" board and throw in a redesigned ice maker along the way.Visit andrews and notice that the board is the first listed part in stock available for the fridge at a lofty 300 bucks.might be worth delving into repairing the board in the event the crummy relays are the failed parts on the board as they look and smell to be (hot). also would break the chain with the little board racket LGs got going on....

As recommended by the repair tech after my first warranty repair (refrigerator fan and main board) I installed a surge protector on the electrical outlet that powers my refrigerator. The board that was replaced actually had a burn mark on it where one of the components had fried.
I used a plug in surge protector that is made for use in offices for copiers and large printers since it has the capacity to handle a refrigerator load. Standard computer plug strip surge protectors are not large enough.
I have not had any electrical problems since then although the ice fan froze and was replaced a year later. The main board was replaced again at that time presumably to meet the Energy Star settlement as well as the ice maker issues.

Hi I have a panasonic split air conditioner. It turns itself off immediately after turning on, the timer button then flashes and that's all.... I have checked for an error code it is H00. I have also made...


Hi Tania,
Have you gone through this checking sequence.? it's from a Panasonic a/c manual. It could be something as simple as a clogged filter. Once you have rectified the fault, you will probably have to clear the fault code as described at bottom below, before it will condescend to work again.
David
  • Once error occurred during operation, the unit will stop its operation, and Timer LED blinks.
  • Although Timer LED goes off when power supply is turned off, if the unit is operated under a breakdown condition, the LED will ON again.
  • In operation after breakdown repair, the Timer LED will not blink. The last error code (abnormality) will be stored
    in IC memory.
14.2.2 To Make a Diagnosis

  1. 1 Timer LED starts to blink and the unit automatically stops the operation.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control continuously for 5 seconds.
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display.
    Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code
    transmitted from the remote control are matched, Power LED will
    light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4
    seconds) will be heard. If no codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5 seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The LED will be off if the unit is turned off or the RESET button on the main unit is pressed.
14.2.3 To Display Memorized Error Code (Protective Operation)
  1. 1 Turn power on.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display. Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed
    and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main
    unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code transmitted from the remote control are matched,
    Power LED will light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be heard. If no
    codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5
    seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The same diagnosis can be repeated by turning power on again.
14.2.4 To Clear Memorized Error Code after Repair (Protective Operation)

  1. 1 Turn power on (in standby condition).
  2. 2 Press the AUTO button for 5 seconds (a "beep" sound is heard) on the main unit to operate the unit at Forced Cooling Operation Mode.
  3. 3 Press the CHECK button on the remote control for about 1 second with a pointed object to transmit signal to
    main unit. A "beep" sound is heard, and the Error Code is cleared

PF code keeps coming on ! This unit is just 2yrs old. purchased 8-08 in a new home. I checked the breaker and it was not tripped. This code has appeared several times in the last two months.


You need to look for a loose wire either in the unit or at the wall connection. It could be as simple as a bad solder connection on the board but it is losing power at some point.
