LG LRFC25750tt Er FF error- we already cleaned out fan. There was no ice buildup on the fan, cleaned off debris and dust. Plug it back in and it works for a few hours and then we get the error code

LG LRFC25750tt Er FF error- we already cleaned out fan. There was no ice buildup on the fan, cleaned off debris and dust. Plug it back in and it works for a few hours and then we get the error code again. Is it possible that this is still an issue with the fan or does this point to a motherboard issue? If it is more likely a motherboard issue is that something we can replace ourselves and how costly will it be?

Hello Nicole;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

It is quite a task to get to the fan. Did you really remove the back wall and access the fan? If so good for you.

I doubt the problem is the mother board. The problem is your fan, it is starting to go. Accessing the fan is the hard part. Replacing the fan motor is the easy part.

The fan motor is about $50.00. Part number 4681JB1027H.

SOURCE: Error code ER FF

The error indicates the freezer fan is not functioning properly. The fan supplies cold air to the refrigerator that is why it seems warmer.
The fan may be frozen, try unplugging it for a few hours to let it thaw. Also check to see if something may have gotten into the vent holes in the freezer that could be blocking the fan from turning.

SOURCE: Error Code ER FF

I had the same problem. I can tell you that simply unplugging the fridge and letting it defrost isn't going to work. You need to get take it apart.

I had the Er FF code about 2 months ago and let the freezer defrost for a couple hours and it started working again. Then two days ago I got the error again. This time I decided to get inside there.

First and foremost, UNPLUG the fridge and TURN OFF the water!

Next empty everything out of the freezer and start taking it apart. You have to get everything out of it to get that back panel off. This includes the ice maker and the rails that the drawers slide on.

Now that the freezer is completely empty there are two screws that hole the back panel on. In my freezer one is a white screw high in the center and one was a gold screw in the little panel that the ice maker hooked up to.

Next grab the back panel by the little fins on the top of it in the middle. Give it a good firm pull, but take care not to yank it too far... it's still connected by wires back there. When I pulled my panel out I found a HUGE chunk of ice on the top of the panel just to the right of the fan that feeds cold are to the fridge. Get that thing off of there taking care not to damage the foam insulation and watch those shiny metal fins that are behind the panel.

While you're putting it back together try to dry everything off as much as possible (I tried see the bright side of the whole evolution and realized I could really clean my freezer).

Once it's all put back together plug that baby in, turn on the water, and enjoy the next four hours as it gets back to being cold.

I'd say you need moderate tinkering skill to do this. If you only own one screwdriver and you never use it you should probably call someone.

Hope this helps!

What does message Er IF mean?


LG refrigerator "Er IF" error code is the "Icemaker Fan Error" message.T his error code indicates a problem with the fan that controls the unit's ice production.

What does the message "Er


Hi

Error Code "Er FF" indicates a problem with the unit's freezer fan.

The freezer fan controls the temperature in the freezer. The source of this error is most likely ice buildup. As with the Er IF error, allowing the unit to thaw should resolve the issue. This can be caused by frost accumulation on or around the freezer fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4 hours to allow this to melt off. If error code persists, call Customer Service.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

My LG display is reading ER FF what does this mean and what can I do to fix it?


Error Code Er FF
This code is not to be confused with the O FF or demo mode error message. The "Er FF" error code indicates a problem with the unit's freezer fan. The freezer fan controls the temperature in the freezer. The source of this error is most likely ice buildup. As with the Er IF error, allowing the unit to thaw should resolve the issue. Contact customer service if the error code continues to be displayed after having thawed the unit.

Hope helps.

LG refrigerator lrsc26944tt error code ER FF


I'm no major appliance repairman. However, after reading several posts, I investigated the issue further since I received an ER FF on the front panel. I have a LFX25960SW refrigerator. I pulled the top and bottom baskets out, and was able to take the back panel out from inside. There was a solid block of ice built up around both fans and wires. I took a blow dryer and gradually melted the ice around the fans and wires. Then, as I was able, I pulled the remaining ice chunks off of the wires. I put the thing back together and it cleared the message. My wife says no more LG appliances for us. :)

Error message Er FF


er ff means that the control board is not sensing evap fan motor operation this means either a bad fan motor ice in the fan motor or bad control board. you can verify fan operation by opening freezer door and feeling for old air blowing from back of freezer compartment. you will have to push in the light switch to get fan operation.
for corndo that has same problem you actually have a different problem. er dh means the control board is not sensing defrost heater operation. the most common culprit is a bad defrost sensor. message me back if you need instructions for trouble shooting..thx peyton

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.
