Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
All error codes will display "ER" on the left side - that simply means error. In your case your error code is FF - which stands for freezer fan, or in technical terms, evap fan. Open your freezer and look for the vents where cool air blows out - do you feel any air coming out, do you hear the fan ? It is possible your evap fan stopped working or excessive frost around it - are you able to turn off unit and remove the back panel of your freezer held by screws, look for any excessive frost or anything blocking the evap fan - if there is no objects or frost blocking fan, then you have need to call service and have them replace your evaporator fan assembly - also note if your freezer fan is not working, then you won't get any cooling to either your freezer or your refrigerator - If you notice excessive frost and see that it is preventing your fan from operating you can use a blow dryer and defrost manually and see if it works again afterwards - if problem returns eventually then you have an auto defrost problem you will have to get it serviced and check the control board and defrost timer + components. Make sure you turn off refrigerator and unplug when checking things yourself at the back - if you are not comfortable doing this call service.

er ff indicates that the computer on your refrig is not sensing freezer fan operation. a guess as to your problem is that the fan is hitting on ice (the noise your hearing) and teh fan is not able to reach operation speed causing the error code. the fix would be to remove the ice from the fan area either maually or by unplugging the unit and letting it defrost for several hours. also to reset the computer you will neeed to unplug it for a few minutes then plugging it back up. hope that helps thanks Peyton

I'm no major appliance repairman. However, after reading several posts, I investigated the issue further since I received an ER FF on the front panel. I have a LFX25960SW refrigerator. I pulled the top and bottom baskets out, and was able to take the back panel out from inside. There was a solid block of ice built up around both fans and wires. I took a blow dryer and gradually melted the ice around the fans and wires. Then, as I was able, I pulled the remaining ice chunks off of the wires. I put the thing back together and it cleared the message. My wife says no more LG appliances for us. :)

The common service code ER FF is
Motor defect, hooked of lead wire
to fan, contact of structures with
fan, short or open of lead
wire(there is no signal of BLDC
motor more than 115 seconds in
operation of fan motor)
It appears you have a fan problem.

ER FF is freezer fan motor failure code. this directs air into the fridge compartment from the freezer room. dead fan=warm fridge.
