Have had the same problem, most of the time it is ice build up on the freezer fan motor. Instead of pull the refrigerator apart or paying for a $500 service call I took out the drawers and found ice buildup on the inside back wall. Took a hair dryer and melted all the ice and put hot air in all the vents. Worked great for about a year and a half and just had to do it again but I've heard of other people paying for new fans, motors, boards, etc and still having the same icing issue. Cheap solution for an expensive, defective refrigerator.

Hello Ken;

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

The 1F code means there is a communication problem between the control board and the freezer fan.

Your freezer fan my have failed or it my be blocked by ice build-up.

So, It is one of these parts:
1.) Freezer fan motor
2.) Defrost heater
3.) Defrost timer.

You did not provide a model number so I can not provide you with parts numbers.

Although, I am retired, I do maintain a small customer base. If you live near Glen Burnie, MD, call me 443-306-1362

ER 1F code in display


Does your Owner's Manual have error codes listed in the back, that tell you what they mean? If you didn't get one with the fridge, try an online search (and a search on the manufacturer's website, if their link isn't in your websearch results), using the brand name AND full model number. You may find a free one you can read and/or download. Failing all that, if you phone or e-mail the manufacturer, they usually have one available (with the possible exception of REALLY old models) that they can e-mail to you upon request.

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 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.
