Getting Error Code "er if"

It resets when I unplug the refrigerator and plug it back in. There doesn't seem to be any change in cooling of either the refrigerator or the freezer. I sometimes see a trickle of water coming from below the water/ice dispenser. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Getting Error Code "er if"

I also have same issue. This fridge has been a nightmare since we bought it!
Just tryed to turn off ice maker, then cycle fridge main power. Seems like the main internal fan is stuck and/or not working!!!! I can only tell this because I cant hear the fan anymore when i close the fridge door.... Sears will come out on Monday so I hope they can fix it this time. This is the 4th time and I will be asking for a replacment cause its a waste of my time and money.

Re: Getting Error Code "er if"

I posted a similar problem with the er if code. I think I have isolated it down to the ice maker fan problem. It appears that the master unit is not getting the correct code from the ice maker fan. I managed to get rid of the problem by dumping the ice, turning the ice maker off (there is a switch next to the ice maker), and unplugging the unit for three minutes and plugging it back in. However, I am without an ice maker. But the problem has not returned and the rest of the unit seems to work normally.

Hope this helps.

What is 1F code on kenmore elite refrigerator

The Er IF error code indicates that the main control board detects that the ice compartment cooling fan is not working. This will cause a lack of cooling in the ice compartment and will normally result in no ice production. This is something that a service technician will usually need to correct.

I have an LG fridge display giving me ER F1 code. i can unplug the fridge and plug it back in and the display resets for about 2 minutes and the the code comes back?

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.

Sears Parts Direct has a diagram of the LFX23961SW case parts here: . The fan motor is part 405G.

I hope this helps.

Pc Er Error code

Jim, Pc Er is a Communication circuit failure on main board or
Communication circuit failure on control panel board
Could be a loose or corroded connection, a bad mother board or a bad display board. Before doing anything, unplug the refrigerator for 5 min and plug it back in. This may reset the motherboard. If not, check the comm cable at the display and the motherboard. if ok, then you will need to replace either the motherboard or the display board. There is no way of determining which one to replace.

The fridge is not cooling. Error ER DH showing on door. Freezer works fine. Was told that the PCB board is to be replaced as well as the defrost module. Cost will be approx $600. Can you advise o

The "Er dH," also known as the Defrost Heater Error message, is displayed when the unit fails to reach 46? F within 2 hours of beginning its defrost cycle. This may be an indication of the defrost heater having broken or the temperature fuse having been pulled out of its slot. Contact customer service if the problem persists after having attempted a system reset.
Quick Fix
  • Unplug the refrigerator for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Doing this will reset all the codes. Sometimes an error appears by fault. If it does not appear again after restarting, then the refrigerator is fine. If the code appears again, then there is a problem with the defroster.
Defroster Problem
  • The error code itself means that the defroster mode has failed. This means that the defrost mechanism cannot reach 46 degrees Fahrenheit within two hours to defrost ice in the freezer properly. Unplug the refrigerator and move all the items that can spoil into a backup fridge or freezer.
  • Look in the back top of the freezer. Use a screwdriver to remove the ice maker machine that blocks the back defrost panel. Remove the two side screws and pull away the plastic cover guard. Check the wire. If it is unplugged, then secure it to see if that is the problem. If the plug is connected, then remove it to check for more problems. Look for any faulted wires on the defroster. If it appears that the wires are fine, you need to replace the defroster panel. Contact your local LG dealer for the specific part number

I have an LG LRSC26923TT Refrigerator. The display shows "Er" in the freezer temp area and "FF" in the refrigerator temp area. Nothing happens when I press any of the buttons. However, the refrigerator...

ER FF is a freezer fan error. Basically the mainboard is not receiving a feedback signal from the freezer fan motor within 65 seconds. When this happens the error code will come up and then none of the buttons will work.

You can clear out the error code by unplugging and plugging the machine back in. The error code will come back if the problem persists. Check around the freezer fan motor fan blades to see if ice buildup is interfering with the operation. Clearing out this ice may fix the issue.

If the problem comes back, then the fan motor may be getting ready to go out or the unit may not be defrosting properly.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Error code Er IF is on the display and noone from sears can tell me what it is, does anyone know?

ER IF means error icing fan, the problem is with a little board that is behind the water dispenser. Change this board and you will be in business.

LG refrigerator not working

Check and clean the condenser. Unplugging the system allows it to cool off. when you plug it back in it will cool until the heat rebuilds if not rejected through the condenser. Make sure the condenser fan comes on when the compressor runs. A faulty fan motor will cause the same type of problem.
