Question about Fisher E522BLX Stainless Steel

Open Question

I have a bottom freezer with ice maker. Now only bottom freezer

I purchased a bottom freezer model E522BRXU in April, 2008. After 10 service calls - not exaggerating, they finally sent me a "new" fridge. I knew it wasn't new - the shelves were not wrapped in plastic as when I had received the original.

I din't care at this point - the ice maker worked - that's all I cared about. The ice maker worked well until July 1st, 2009. It just quit. No warning, nothing. I dont' want to go through the same thing as last year - I won't. I'm thinking of getting rid of it (although I really like the fridge - save and except for the ice maker).

Any suggestions?

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Can you tell me why my ice ain't freezing but everything else is


Hi,

Its possible to freeze item below the evaporator, but with out a fan moving air the ice must be located above the evaporator. I hope this helps and answers your question. I would look for a fan issue, or get me a model number and its possible I can assist you further if needed. Thanks

What does Er 1F mean of the control panel?


I believe the 1F error indicates a problem with the ice maker. This could be an issue with the ice maker fan icing up, the fan motor failing or the PCB board that controls the fan. First try unplugging the power to the refrigerator for 8 hours. This may reset the error code. Next check if the fan is spinning freely. If the fan has iced up, then the motor could fail from the attempt to spin the fan.

If you add a comment with the full model number, I may be able to give you the parts information. (Look inside the refrigerator for the model number; there is usually a plaque with that data on the side of the fridge.) If your refrigerator is under warranty, contact Kenmore.

I hope this helps.

(If you turn off the ice maker after resetting the code, you probably won't see the error again.)

I get an Error code Er if on my LG refrigerator, what can I do?


Hello Janet;



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



Based on your problem I do not need your model number. This is a high maintenance unit. You have a bottom freezer with the ice maker and bucket on the fresh food section door.



The error code IF is the ice maker fan. You have two fans, one for the freezer and one for the ice maker.



First, ice makers and ice buckets belong in the freezer section. When they are on the door they are exposed to the warm room air temperature and condensate forms freezing the ice cubs together. Then you open and close the fresh food section door you force warm air down the air vents to your ice maker fan and your ice maker fan freezes up and burns out trying to start.

Part #: 5209JA1044A Cost: $75.00


You can purchase it over the internet for a lot less.

Base on what you described, I suspect your ice maker fan over loaded your control board and damaged it.

Part #: EBR41956418 Cost: $125.00 You can get this over the internet for about $80.00 or less.


Now, how do you want to do this?

1.) You can pay for a $400.00-$450.00 service call?

2.) Or do it dirty. Kill the power to the ice maker fan and purchase ice cube trays and put them in your freezer.

a.) Purchase a new control board.

b.) Take the bottom kick plate off the front of the unit. You will need to pull the bottom freezer door out to do this. There are two fillips head screws holding this on. Remove the screws and the kicker plate, also called the toe plate.

c.) In the front there are 2 leveling screws. One on each side. These are hard to raise, you do not have much to grab on. I use channel locks. Turn counter clockwise to raise and clear the floor.

d.) Pull your unit out so you can get behind it.

e.) Behind the unit unplug the unit.

f.) On the left side there is a metal cover plate over your main control board.

g.) GROUND YOURSELF BY TOUCHING SOMETHING THAT IS BARE METAL. STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL KNOCK OUT YOU NEW CONTROL BOARD.

h.) Remove the metal cover - unscrew.

I.) There are several white pins holding the board on. There is a small leg on each pin that must be pressed in to release the board.

j.) Systematically go around the control board disconnecting one connector at a time and connecting to the new board. Each connector has a tab to squeeze to release.

k.) Push the board back onto the white retaining pins.

l.) Now we are going to disconnect the freezer fan. On the control board each connector is marked with a number below it. Look for, "CON 7". You are going to cut the two wires to disconnect power to your ice maker fan.

j.) On the Con 7, on the left cut the yellow wire with the black stripe and the solid blue wire. CUT THESE WIRES ABOUT 2" AWAY FROM THE CONNECTOR IN THE EVENT YOU WISH TO REPLACE THE ICE MAKER FAN IN THE FUTURE.



I would have thought with all of the recalls under warrantee that LG has had on this model that they would have stopped manufacture.



Where in the mountains is your unit?

My 3mth old e522brxu fisher and paykel ice maker has stopped working water is working fine you can manually force a dump and hear the cycle start to turn the tray but no water fills the tray can not hear a...


Hi, For the benefit of anyone doing a Google search for it (which is likely anyone with a Fisher and Paykel fridge w/icemaker) the broken wire is a notorious design flaw, and if you see it dangling from your ice tray - symptom is no ice being made -

You must remove the clip underneath the ice tray, and a little foam pad with it. There you will see the broken wire attached to a little black sensor. It's a little fiddly to do in place, but after unplugging the fridge (unless you like a good electric jolt) you need to splice the wire and reattach it. Your ice maker should resume working as intended.

Hope that helped.

Good luck.

Ice maker stopped working after about 6 months


Sounds like the ice maker heater (which releases the cubes) is not working. Individual parts are not available. The entire ice maker must be replaced, but since you say it is only 6 months old, it would be covered under the factory warranty.
