SOURCE: Error code ER FF

The error indicates the freezer fan is not functioning properly. The fan supplies cold air to the refrigerator that is why it seems warmer.
The fan may be frozen, try unplugging it for a few hours to let it thaw. Also check to see if something may have gotten into the vent holes in the freezer that could be blocking the fan from turning.

SOURCE: error code er ff on my kenmore elite bottomfreezer model 795.7756

I fixed it. ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message will be displayed. This fridge is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps cirulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.

The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.

This is going to be an annual chore if I want to keep this refrigerator. We should all ban together and call for a recall.

SOURCE: electric blanket error code

My new blanket works great. Then I changed my sheets and would get the F2 problem. Very consistent after 5 tries with F2 blinking by unplugging at wall outlet and comes on with F2 blinking. Let it rest a night and still the same.

Then I unplug it at the blanket. Hmm, notice a pin was lower than the others. PUSH BACK IN FIRM and tried again. Perfect.

I have a Kenmore Refr. Model # 795.77563600 has a Error FF


The FF error code indicates that the freezer fan motor is defective.
You need a new main control board and evaporator fan motor.
The fridge is made by LG, but rebranded as Kenmore by Sears. First 3 digits is the tell. You can call Sears for parts.

I have a GE TFX28PB with an FF error light.


FF probably stands for "Frost Free". Yes. Your defrost circuit must have a temp sensor to tell it when the defrost is working. And for your fridge...it isnt.

The warm fridge/barely cold freezer are both common symptoms of extreme frosting of the cooling coils.

You need to manually defrost this unit and replace the defrost element and/or the controller board/power supply. You can buy them pretty cheaply online. Replacement is a lot easier if you just shut off the fridge and let it come to room temp before removing the coil cover.

Go to the GE website and get an online diagram of your fridge so you can see where the parts all reside. If you timer is mechanical it should have a way to manually trigger it to confirm the heater element works. IC based boards need special commands to go manual.....but you should be able to get this info from GE.

Good luck and be careful.

Error code FF


I had the same problem. I can tell you that simply unplugging the fridge and letting it defrost
isn't going to work. You need to get take it apart.


I had the Er FF code about 2 months ago and let the freezer defrost for a couple hours and it
started working again. Then two days ago I got the error again. This time I decided to get inside
there.


First and foremost, UNPLUG the fridge and TURN OFF the water!


Next empty everything out of the freezer and start taking it apart. You have to get everything out
of it to get that back panel off. This includes the ice maker and the rails that the drawers slide
on.


Now that the freezer is completely empty there are two screws that hole the back panel on. In my
freezer one is a white screw high in the center and one was a gold screw in the little panel that
the ice maker hooked up to.


Next grab the back panel by the little fins on the top of it in the middle. Give it a good firm
pull, but take care not to yank it too far... it's still connected by wires back there. When I
pulled my panel out I found a HUGE chunk of ice on the top of the panel just to the right of the fan
that feeds cold are to the fridge. Get that thing off of there taking care not to damage the foam
insulation and watch those shiny metal fins that are behind the panel.


While you're putting it back together try to dry everything off as much as possible (I tried see the
bright side of the whole evolution and realized I could really clean my freezer).


Once it's all put back together plug that baby in, turn on the water, and enjoy the next four hours
as it gets back to being cold.


I'd say you need moderate tinkering skill to do this. If you only own one screwdriver and you never
use it you should probably call someone.


Hope this helps!
