LG GR-B206GTQA Fridge Freezer ER CF Error Code

Hi, I hope someone can help me. I have an LG side by side fridge/freezer model no: GR-B206GTQA that I have recently purchased second hand. An error code ER CF is showing on the display panel. I have done a little research on the internet to try and locate the problem and found it to be associated with the condenser fan motor situated at the bottom/rear of the appliance. I have removed the panel to observe the function of the fan blade, the blade would rotate for several minutes when first plugged in and then it would stop and start intermittently before stopping completely, this is when the error code ER CF would appear. I have cleaned the condenser and fan blade etc as this area was very dusty but this didn't resolve the issue so I wrongly assumed that replacing the fan motor would fix it, I bought a new one (the correct motor for this model) and fitted it fully expecting to have successfully repaired it but the fan runs the same as the one replaced. If I turn off the freezer for several minutes and switch it back on again the motor/fan doesn't run at all but if its left turned off for a couple of hours it runs for several minutes before stopping as before and then the error code is displayed again. I would very much appreciate any help offered. Many Thanks Lee

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.

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.

SOURCE: fan in the freezer stop working ater a while

The service manual gives the following explanation of your error code (Er FF): "Poor motor, hooking of wires to fan. Contact of structures to Fan. Snapping or short-circuit of L/wire (if there is no fan motor signal for more than 60 seconds in operation of fan motor)" So CoolTech is right!

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.

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.

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 ! :)
