I can understand how frustrating it is to have issues with your refrigerator. The error code ER IF means that the main control board lost a feedback signal from the icing fan motor for over 115 seconds. This fan is located in the rear of the freezer section, on the left side of the fan cover. The fan supplies cold air for the compartment where the icemaker is located. The error code may be cleared by disconnecting power to the refrigerator for about 3 minutes, then plugging the unit back in. The code will be cleared, but may come back if the icing fan does not start running. If the error continues to come back after the power has been reset. There may be ice formed around the fan housing preventing the fan from running. The fan cover can be removed, but is time consuming and difficult. You could just unplug the unit for 24 hours and leave the doors open. This will allow any ice build-up to melt and return the unit to proper operation.

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 a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator that has ER 1F on the display. Where can I find a manual with error codes or can you tell me what this means?

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

That error comes from a failing fan due to ice build up which directly affects your ice maker.

I have the Kenmore Elite Model # 795.79773.901 and I keep getting Er 1F. What does that mean and what do I do to fix it?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

I hate to just paste a link to the answer but this answer is quite thorough:

If you have frost build up in the freezer compartment it can impede operation of the fan. Frost build up is usually a secondary symptom of an automatic defrost system problem. i.e it is not defrosting... due to a failure of one of the following:
-defrost heater
-defrost thermostat
-defrost control

Hold the door light switch depressed and see if the light goes out and that the fan is running.

If the fan has failed the part number is around $60.00 usually. There are AC and DC fans in this unit.

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.,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

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.
