Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Kenmore Elite Trio

I am getting an error message on my Kenmore LCD that indicates ER IF. I have unplugged the appliance and it resets the fridge. Several hours later, the problem returns. I have also noticed that the ice in the ice maker was not staying frozen. My guess is that there is a problem with the fan in the ice maker, but am not sure how to check or address the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Noticed I have same error code er if on my new trio kenmore elite. I have read this posting and have turned off the ice maker. I called the Sears Repair 1 800 4 MY HOME and they informed me to put my food in a bag so I can show it to a tech repair person once they get here a week from todoy. I will be going to Sears tomorrow since this is only 9 months old and still under warrenty. Will post any information I recieve.

    I have the same problem ER IF error code. Can you tell me how Sears fixed it. I just don't have the money to pay them to come out and diagnosis. I would like to order the part and try fixing it myself.

    I had the same error code on my refrigerator--ER IF. I was told it was the icemaker fan. The repairman came and just replaced the entire icemaker, fan and all. It worked for about 2 minutes and the code came back up. The repairman says it needs to be reset, but didn't know how. He said he'd check and get back with me, but after 2 days he hasn't done that. My husband is ready to return it.

    I left the refrigerator door open all night and I am getting the message ER FF. We unplugged the unit and it reset for only a few minutes and then the same message reappeared. We can get water but we can not get ice.

  • juanlt Jun 01, 2008

    I'm having the same problem..six months old. I unplugged the unit and error came back a day later.

  • limestarinc Jun 23, 2008

    Having the same problem with ER IF message code on the display. I unplugged the fridge for about 10 seconds, plugged it back in, everything looked ok for about a minute and the error came right back on.

    It looks like nobody has a solution to this so far.


  • lmgittings Jun 26, 2008

    I am having the same issue, I tried resetting by cutting the breaker for 30 seconds and turning it back on. It worked for a few hours and is now showing the error again.

    Our Kenmore Elite fridge beeps 24/7. Everything works. Any troubleshooting I attempt just makes some aspect of the fridge break down. Turning the breakers off doesn't help. The manual doesn't help. Sears 1800 my home said it would be over $200 in labor plus part and all he could do is put a new board in. (i might consider paying it, if he could remove the speaker, but he's not allowed).

  • milawn Mar 10, 2009

    I got the ER FF code once a week or so. It is caused by the freezer fan icing up and shutting down. we take out the fan thaw it and dry it out. This fix last about 2-3 weeks. Talking to a repair person says that this is common and seems to be casued by the water supply line.

  • hillbillies5 Apr 20, 2009

    Same problem, beeping 24/7, Sears has been completely unhelpful.



    our Kenmore Elite Microwave caught fire. Noticed is was manufactured in Tianjin China. I should have checked this, having worked in China for 5 years the quality of most if not all products coming out of chinese factories are of significantly less quality and durability than what is built in NA. Again, Sears said sorry about your luck. $13k in appliances what about customer goodwill.

How to remove the speaker from a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator. 
Our Kenmore Elite fridge has been beeping since we bought our house 9 months ago. There's nothing apparently wrong with it, the filters have been replaced etc. Sears said it would be a minimum of $300 to replace the electric panel (and my thought was that whatever is causing it could happen again!). We were ready to buy a new fridge.
Tools:  thin spatula or hand held flat razor (for scraping paint) flat screwdriver  soldering iron
I pried open the water dispenser with a razor thin spatula (i began with just my hands). the electronics then turned off. When the dispenser came completely off an electronic board dangled down. 
On the board is the word 'buzzer' with two soldered points, underneath was a round black object, obviously the speaker. My husband and decided that if we pried the speaker off with just a screw driver, it may break the whole board. So we got out the soldering iron and one at a time, heated both soldering points labeled "buzzer." As each heated we used the screwdriver to pry the speaker off the board. 
The speaker gently slipped off the board into our hands. We placed the board back in its place and snapped the water dispenser cover back into place. The whole thing took 2 minutes. The electronic lights all came back on the dispenser. Everything works perfectly. There's one less beep in our house!

My new one day old refrigerator will not stop beeping every thirty seconds it will beep twice. the unit is level in all directions,it does stay cool at 37 degrees in fridge and 0 degrees in freezer.
polarity is correct for the electric.lights go off when doors are shut.it has nothing blocking the doors.it has the 1nch clearence that is recuired.

Yep, me too, exact same problem. Noticed the ice was soft, now we don't even get water. Repair appt. set, fridge is only 6 mos. old. Looks like we'll be extending the warranty on this one.

Kenmore Elite trio Error 15


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Kenmore Elite Trio Error Message ER DH


This is a refrigerator manufactured by LG and is well known for this type of malfunction. There should be two 1/4 inch screws on the outside of the freezer drawer tracks near the front that will allow you to pull out the entire door assembly. Once this is done and the unit is fully defrosted and unplugged, there are a couple/few screws in the back freezer panel. Once the panel is removed, this part is located on the upper right side of the evaperator coils. It is sometimes wedged in tigtly but should pull out with a good tug. Unplug the white harness, remove defective part and reverse this process. Good luck and happy shopping for the shoes.

Kenmore Elite Trio Fridge - Getting ER F5 error on display


Er-FS error code: Failure of freezer sensor.
I have been finding the fuseable link in the defrost system on these models open preventing the defrost cycle.
This would involve removing the freezer back panel and removing the sensor and fuse from the evaporator.
It's just a plug in.

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator error er dh


The Er DH error code indicates the temperature sensor on the evaporator coil did not reach 50 degrees within one hour.
This would indicate the control board did put the refrigerator through a defrost cycle.

This problem could be caused by a defective relay on the control board, a defective defrost heater, a broken wire to the heater, or a stopped up drain on the defrost pan causing ice to form on the evaporator coil.

Before replacing the control board, someone should remove the food from the freezer, remove the freezer drawer, and remove the evaporator cover to expose the evaporator coil, heater, and defrost sensor.
The voltage to the defrost heater should be 120 volts ac.
The defrost heater is part of the evaporator coil and is not replaceable as a separate part.

You can test the operation of the defrost system by pressing "Ultra Ice" and "colder freezer temp" for 3 seconds.
The first time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and open the damper.

All displays should be on.


The second time you press and hold the buttons the board will test the compressor, fan, and close the damper.

The third time you press and hold the buttons, the board will turn the compressor and fan off and turn the defrost heater on for around 25 minutes. This would let you know if the defrost system is working.

Error message


Hello gravyblast.
Welcome to Fixya.


You said, your Kenmore Elite Trio, model 795.7756 or 7757 has an error message simply reading ER IF. No pressing of buttons, or combination thereof changes anything. Also, the ice maker has stopped working although it is turned on.
Can anyone help?
I cannot pull the refrigerator out to unplug and reboot it, thus I don't know what to do.

Try tripping the breaker off for 5 minutes and then see if this method resets the system?
Do not turn it back on for at least tree minutes. That's why I said, Five!!!

Lets see how it resets while I look your fridge up.
Write back. Huuum

Hello fergust
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, I have just purchased this unit and switch it on.After some 3 minutes error message appeared on the front door screen . Message ---- ER CF Neither fridge,freezer or ice maker are working. What is the problem.


Did you turn the refrigerator and freezer on to the proper cooling adjustments as in the user manual?
Is the ice maker hooked up to the water line and in the on position?
Did you use the free help line if you are doing it your elf?


While I look it up, you can try to reset the system by plugging the fridge for 5 minutes, or if you can not reach the plug, then throw the breaker for 5 minutes.
Not less than 3 minutes. That is why I sad, 5minutes.
Usually this will do it! let me know as I look up the error codes.
