That SY ER is the SYtem EvapoRator Fault. This usually means there is NOT enough air flow over the sensor, this can mean a faulty sensor, or fan.. you need to check.
In my professional opinion you should get a service tech to call, contact your head or local Frigidaire offic, and ask them for a referral to an authorized service agent. When there then ask for a "Quote" as to the repair, this way you can make an informed decision.
usually though a repair such as this shouldn't be too costly, however it may just be the tip of an underlying condition, which is why i suggested the professional.

The EF SY code indicates the evaporator fan circuit has failed or the sensor isn't registering cold air flow. Since the fridge is warm, the fan isn't running. You'll need to check the fan motor and the control board wiring. Unplug the refrigerator before checking the wiring. (You'll need a multimeter to check for continuity/voltages/resistance in those wires. You can use a 9V battery to check if the fan works. It's a DC motor; connect the red and yellow wires to the positive terminal of the battery. Connect the brown wire (on some models) to the negative terminal. Check the wiring harness for corrosion as well. The fan is at the back of the refrigerator. The control board is on the bottom, behind the toe kick plate.
If the fan motor is good, then the control board is bad. The fan motor is part 60 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/kenmore-refrigerator-parts/model-25370312211/0582/0161000/R1209145/00005.html . The control board is part 50 on the same page. It may be better to replace both parts at once.
You should also check if the fan has been freezing up. If the refrigerant system is leaking, ice build up on the fan can stop it from spinning. This will cause the fan motor to fail but the replacement part will fail again if the ice build up problem isn't solved first.
I hope this helps.

Hello Suzanne, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY EF". An "SY EF" code stands for an evaporator fan circuit failure. This could also be a miscommunication with your refrigerator and I would advise performing a reset on your refrigerator. You can reset it by disconnecting the power plug from the outlet for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue you may need to replace your main control board or a wiring harness. For proper disassembly and repair of your refrigerator I would recommend having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Hi daneilb101 - Typically error code SY EF indicates that the refrigerator has detected an evaporator fan circuit failure. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. The wiring between the main control board and evaporator fan will need to be check and diagnose. Depending on the diagnoses the main control board may need replacing.
