With these units using adaptive defrosting technology..... they are becoming extremely hard to troubleshoot as well as costly to repair. The govt. is mandating more energy efficient products. So you save money on energy and spend it on repairs.

It sounds like your unit is building up frost. You partially confirmed it when you said you un-plugged it and there was water all over the floor.

In the following parts pictorial....part # 407A is the ice fan motor. It appears to be located in the bottom of the unit. I would check for voltage and fan operation at that point.

Click on the link. This is the parts list page. Now click on "view full size" under small illustration. The pic will open in a new page. Now click on the new pic and it will open to a full page plus view. Use your cursor to drag the picture of use the arrow buttons.

SOURCE: ER 1F

It is ER IF and indicates that the ice maker fan is not working. The fan is probably frozen. If you can remove the fan duct and housing at the back of the freezer you may be able to defrost the ice in the fan enclosure. The fan may have frozen because of hight humidity or because the defrost cycle is not working.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Elite 79577563600 is showing Er 1F.

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.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,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.

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.

You are probably seeing the Er IF error code that indicates a problem with the ice compartment fan.

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. If you are advanced in technical skills, you may be able to correct this problem yourself. It will require the removal of the inside back panel of the freezer compartment. This is not an easy task. I recommend that you review the procedure for this task that is shown in the image below. Make sure that you are able to safely perform the tasks described before proceeding with this repair. Unplug the refrigerator to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Once you access the ice fan, you may find excessive frost in this area and on the evaporator that could be causing your cooling problem and fan problem. If you defrost this area, you may find that you do not need to replace parts. If you find no excessive frost or the Er IF error code resumes after removing any frost then you will likely need to replace the ice fan. You can order this part here.

No water or ice from lg lfx23961sw trouble code on display er 1f


Find the technical data information. It is a document somewhere in the refrigerator. It could be under the front, which, means removing the kick panel, or in the back behind the rear panel. Once you locate the tech sheet it might enlighten you are to what the error codes are. With this information you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed with your next actions.
