1F means you have an issue with your fan motor cooling your icemaker, Error code 1F indicates an abnormality of the BLDC fan motor for ice making, caused by a poor BLDC motor connection, DriveIC, and TR. This information can be found in the service manual on pg. 32 of the service manual: http://136.166.4.200/contents/Fridge/LFX25960/LFX25960_Service_Manual.pdf
From the research I've done it sounds like it is usually a bad fan motor that causes this condition. This will prevent the icemaker from working. I'm not sure if it will affect the defrost cycle. If you turn off the icemaker, then either pull the plug for a few seconds or turn off the circuit breaker for a few seconds, the front panel will light up and stay lit. Then you need to call for service.

PS: I'm finding out that this refrigerator is more problems than it's worth. First it was the drawer glides breaking, then a balky ice maker, now the fan motor. From what I found out on the internet, I'm not the only one with these problems. I've only bought two LG products, the refrigerator and a small LCD HDTV, but I'm not happy with either one of them. In my opinion LG is an inferior product.

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks

Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Getting Er 1F message on control panel and water/ice dispenser not working. Nothing happens when trying to operate control panel. What should I do?


You can unplug the unit for 60 seconds. It will temporarily allow you to access the controls. Er1F error is the ice maker fan error. It either means you have frost buildup hitting the fan or the pcb is not sensing the feedback from the fan. Try defrosting the ice from the freezer evap area, as in overnight if you have another place to store your food. If this resolves the problem then it was just ice or frost. If not then it is the motor that needs to be replaced.

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: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/lg-refrigerator-parts/model-LFX23961SW/3204/0161000/K0810254/00001.html . The fan motor is part 405G.

I hope this helps.

You have a problem with the ice room fan motor. It will not send freezing cold air to the icemaker. You will need to have a qualified technician replace the fan motor.

I have a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator, Model No. 795.77573600. The ice and water dispenser give the error message Er 1F. In searching online it appears that this problem is related to the ice compartment...


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Error code IF or 1F not making ice model #795,77562... Sears/LG


You posted under an incorrect model number, so can only give general info. IF is a code for ice room fan. It is a fan located in a plastic box in the upper left hand corner of the freezer. The IF code shows up if the control board does not get a feedback signal from the fan telling the control board that the fan is running. I'd check to see if there is some ice blocking the fan blade. If that is not the case, you will need a meter to do further diagnostics to find out if your problem is with the fan motor or the control board. (note: when you turn the icemaker off, the fan will no longer blow cold air into the ice room, and all the ice will melt. Also, when the icemaker bin is full, the same basic thing can happen. Steady use of ice or dumping the bin will prevent ice from melting in bin.) The fan runs on 12 to 16 volts DC (variable speed), and the feed back signal is about 4.5 volts DC.
