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: I have error code ER dH. Unplug and then replug

er dh means the refrigs computer is not sensing a defrost cycle (dh means defrost heater) most common problem is a bad defrost sensor located on the evaporator behind  the plastic cover in the back of the freezer compartment. your refrig will continue to cool for about 1 week unless you get this fixed then the evaporator coil will ice over and have to be defrosted manually.

this is an easy part to replace yourself and you can purchase the part thru sears.com or any of the other parts distributors on the net. you will need a complete model number from the unit to be sure and secure the correct part.
Thanks for using FixYa peyton...

SOURCE: Problems for Refrig. Kenmore Elite

The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.

This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.

Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.

You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.

All displays should be on.


The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.

The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.

Error code dH on LG bottom freezer refrigerator


You have a defrost issue. Thus the code.Check the back wall of the freezer section. Do you see frost? Yes means that the sensor or the heater is shorted? The control seems fine but it could be bad. Can't tell with out tests being preformed. Usually the sensor that goes bad. I can help you if you are up to disassembling and testing. Do you have tools and a multimeter?

Kenmore Elite Trio Error Message ER DH


This is a refrigerator manufactured by LG and is well known for this type of malfunction. There should be two 1/4 inch screws on the outside of the freezer drawer tracks near the front that will allow you to pull out the entire door assembly. Once this is done and the unit is fully defrosted and unplugged, there are a couple/few screws in the back freezer panel. Once the panel is removed, this part is located on the upper right side of the evaperator coils. It is sometimes wedged in tigtly but should pull out with a good tug. Unplug the white harness, remove defective part and reverse this process. Good luck and happy shopping for the shoes.

Error Code - erdh


Kenmore and LG 795 Series. Model 795.77556600 but most models use the same repair. Controller Part # 6615JB2005H

To Verify correct part. Check part number for your model number at
www.searspartsdirect.com


Don't be intimidated by this repair... The 'erdh' error code indicates - error defrost heater. Replacing the controller is EASY. The difficult part is removing everything in the freezer section to access the evaporator coil but hang in there and stay with it. You will not hurt anything if you use common sense.


The new part (defrost controller) is relatively inexpensive ranging $10 - $14. Here in the SouthWest I used Appliance Parts Depot for a $10 part cost. Don't forget to have 3-4 small wire ties to secure the defrost heater, defrost sensor and wires.


It would help to write down a few notes of some of the particulars during disassembly.


I had the same ERDH error code, and my refrigerator began to warm up. I replaced the defrost thermostat assembly part # 6615JB2005H which is located inside the freezer, on the right side behind the white plastic panel.


(See Diagram Image) I accessed it by removing the freezer door, all components inside the freezer, including the slide rails / tracks mounted on the sides of the freezer. Be careful when removing the rear white panel because an evaporator fan is mounted on the back of it and plugs into the back left side of the freezer compartment. You just saved yourself about $375 or more.

Stay With It & Good Luck!

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

Kenmore 795.7731 Fridge warm;freezer cold - Error er dH


I faced the same problem for Kenmore elite Trio Model # 795.77543600 bottom freezer refrigerator. The issue as pointed out by Medeer on fixya.com, turned out to be the part called component assembly, part number 6615JB2005H. I got this replaced yesterday but for 4 hours I did not notice any cooling... so I thought it did not work.... but then in the morning I notice that the issue has been resolved, the refrigerator is cold and there is no eR dH error message. Thanks to all who shared on this site.
