Above is the latest service sheet to do with your machine.

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.

SOURCE: kenmore refrigerator 253.7031 touch panel reads freezer temperature 5Y refrigerator temperature EF. What does it mean. refrigerator is getting very warm 71 Fahrenheit

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.

What does the error code SY EF mean on an Electrolux French door refrigerator?


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

What do the error codes 5Y and EF mean


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

If you are getting error code SY EF, it typically indicates that your refrigerator has detected a failure with the evaporator fan circuit. Let's try resetting your refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is good wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. If the error code does not clear, at this point it is best to reach out to professional to check the wiring between the main control board and evaporator fan. Hope this helps! - Z

What does the error code 5y EF mean on my Frigidaire refrigerator


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you are receiving an "SY EF" code on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB. The "SY EF" code stands for system error with the evaporator fan. This possibly means that there is something going on with your evaporator fan or it could possibly be a false error code. . I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

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.

Fault code EF is flashing on my Electrolux fridge FSC23R5DSB6. What does this code mean?


EF on the Electrolux refrigerator digital display means "evaporator fan."

The long answer is, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your Electrolux refrigerator.

Turn the power off on the digital display and carefully unplug the refrigerator from the power source. Leave the refrigerator unplugged for three to five minutes. Plug the refrigerator back in and give the refrigerator a few minutes then turn the power button back on. Press the default button on the display and see if the EF code goes away.

Electrolux recommends that you do not plug the refrigerator into an outlet that has a reset button. If your refrigerator is plugged into one of these outlets, try plugging it into another outlet and see if the refrigerator resets itself.

Hope this helps.

On the freezer and fridge temp display there are the codes SY and EF. My manual doesnt give any trouble codes.


There is either something wrong with the fan or the computer. But the only thing you can do is go through the owners manual if you can't correct it with that you will have to call for warranty service. If you go any further then that you will void the warranty.

The short answer is that EF on the Electrolux refrigerator digital display means "evaporator fan." The long answer is, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your Electrolux refrigerator.

Hope helps.
