Frigidaire fridge model FGUN2642LF6 fridge is not working. Code displays sy and ef, what is wrong

Your evaporator fan is not spinning.

Check to make sure there isn't any ice build up jamming up the fan. If there isn't then it's either the evaporator fan, or the main board.

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.

-Best Regards-

Electrolux PHSC39EESS5 refrigerator: EF code, but evaporator fan is working (usually). sometimes at restart, compressor and fan will start, then stop after 1 minute. is there other reason for EF error...


When this happens your fans is getting the incorrect information on how to run, on some occasions both the fan and control to the fridge had to be replaced at the same time. Disconnect the evaporator fan motor and run the unit as normal. If the computer allows the compressor to run at least five mins, just replace the fan motor, if not replace both.
Control board is under the unit Part# 241511102 (only if needed)
Parts number for fan motor P#241509402 both of these parts should be available through your local part house or REPAIR CLINIC, to avoid shipping cost and any return issue you may have.
I hope this helps, good luck

1st water dispenser not working now EF code

EF code on a Frigidaire refrigerator means Evaporator Fan problem. The motherboard on the FGHC2345LF can be sensing a problem with your evaporator fan. The fan could be failing so I advise that you keep an eye on the evaporator fan. All cooling will stop if this fan fails. I believe you are having two unrelated issues. The=> 241734302 Water Inlet Valve

is possibly becoming defective and not allowing water to dispense.

After power outage the fridge was displaying codes SY and EF I have Frigidaire model number FGHS2365KF1. Any thoughts?????


SY: Defective evaporator system. Check evaporator fan, thermostat and heater.

EF: Evaporator Fan defective. Test and eventually replace the evaporator fan.

The problem is likely the evaporator fan. Before replacing the fan test the other parts comprised in the evaporator system.

Here a tip explaining how to test such parts with a similar fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is more or less the same with your model.

Here parts and diagrams for your model.

Generally you can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:
