Error code ER CF on my LG Side by Side Fridge Freezer

Hi, I hope someone can help me. I have an LG side by side fridge freezer, model is: GR-B206GTQA. An error code reading ER CF has appeared on the front display. I looked for potential caused on the internet and wrongly assumed that replacing the condenser cooling fan motor would solve the problem. The fridge freezer seems to be cooling well enough but the back of the appliance is hot because the cooling fan isn't running. The original fan motor that I replaced worked intermittently after cleaning the thick dust from the fan and surrounding area then it would stop completely, that is when the error message would appear. The new motor is the correct one for this model and works for several minutes before stopping and the error ER CF has returned! If i unplug it and leave it for a few hours then plug it in again the fan runs as before. I would greatly appreciate any help. Many Thanks Lee

SOURCE: Kenmore 795.7731 Fridge warm;freezer cold - Error er dH

just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech.

SOURCE: LG Fridge Freezer display has CF error code

Turns out a CF ER is a Compressor Fan problem.
Had a look and the fan was not turning, although it spins freely. Apparently it's a 3 phase 12v fan. I was able to get a resistance measurement across it but didn't know what to expect.
This also explains why it seemed a bit quieter and why the water is a bit warmer sometimes. The valve for the water dispenser is right beside the fan and it's getting pretty hot in there at the moment.

SOURCE: GE Side-by-Side model #GSSWGPDWW freezer stopped working.... help

First of all , a GE , GSS model has no defrost timer , or calrod heater . If your ready for a little work , diagnosing , here we go .
You have a defrost problem , so , pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it .
Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR55X10101 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater .
To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils .

If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , and when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , and when to cycle off due to set temperature reached .

SOURCE: Subject: 'New' Kenmore bottom freezer

This is a bad fan motor (click here like a sample replacement) inside the back wall of the freezer, you will need to replace it with part number that could look it accroding with your model. You can order the parts you need from the following places:
- http://www.apwagner.com/
- http://www.repairclinic.com/
- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/

So, according with your comments, if your device has few months, before to take off some part, I suggest contact your dealer or technical service keeping under warranty service.

Hope this helps.

You probably need to replace the fan blade or housing. They are available online and are not too much more of a job than the fan motor was. It was likely not the fan motor giving you the problem since they are rather strong.

LG GR-B206GTQA Fridge Freezer ER CF Error Code


The fan is almost certainly run by a sensor in the condenser. If it doesn't get hot enough, the fan doesn't run. Sounds like short of gas. Try wiring the fan to the compressor live and see if it runs all the time then.

Error code er ff.how do i fix this? freezer is still freezing but fridge is warm.


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:
  1. Remove the freezer shelf. (If your refrigerator has an
    icemaker, remove the icemaker first).
  2. Remove the plastic guide for slides on left side by
    unscrewing phillips head screws.
  3. Remove the grille by removing one screw and pulling the
    grille forward.
  4. Remove the Fan Motor assembly by loosening 2 screws
    and disassembling the shroud.
  5. Pull out the fan and separate the Fan Motor and Bracket.
  6. Replace fan motor assembly in reverse order.

FF error code


The ER-FF problem that you have is: ERROR -FAN FREEZER so it means that you have a problem with maybe the fan motor or if it's a bottom mount freezer maybe ice built up on the fan motor so it's blockin the fan motor.
Hope i helped u a little bit ! :)
