Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

We noticed the same error ER FF on our display this morning. And the fan was making the same loud-troubled noise.So far I unloaded the ice from the ice maker and turned off the icemaker. The noise stopped, but the error still insists on hanging on. My husband is working, and I am certainly not able to move that monster to get behind and start messing with the freezer back cover! So what's left? Repair man? We had this unit for almost two years, and it's suppose to last without problems for awhile! We had a piece that needed repair in the freezer section, within the first week of having it home! I am about to give up on the 'awhile' part!

If you turned off the ice maker, I suggest you unplug the ice maker connection cord so the frig system is not compromised by any default in the ice maker. Next, unplug the frig from the electric receptacle and wait 5 minutes, then re plug. This many times will allow the control circuit to reset itself and the failure/error codes will usually diappear (if nothing else is wrong).
Note: any time you disconnect power to a frig or air conditioner, always wait 3-5 minutes before restoring power to give the compressor time to settle before forcing it to start again; this makes a big difference some times. Good Luck, Macgivor.

Refrigerator displaying error "ER FF".


Error Code "Er FF" indicates a problem with the unit's freezer fan.

The freezer fan controls the temperature in the freezer. The source of this error is most likely ice buildup. As with the Er IF error, allowing the unit to thaw should resolve the issue.

This can be caused by frost accumulationon or around the freezer fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4 hours to allowthis to melt off. If error code persists, call Customer Service.

Hope this helps.

My LG display is reading ER FF what does this mean and what can I do to fix it?


Error Code Er FF
This code is not to be confused with the O FF or demo mode error message. The "Er FF" error code indicates a problem with the unit's freezer fan. The freezer fan controls the temperature in the freezer. The source of this error is most likely ice buildup. As with the Er IF error, allowing the unit to thaw should resolve the issue. Contact customer service if the error code continues to be displayed after having thawed the unit.

Hope helps.

check your evaporator fan maybe the fan blade hitting edges or the shaft or bushing has damage cause of buzzing sounds apply lubrication or replace bushing but before you dismantle try to off the unit.

Ff and fan noise


Hi,

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.

Thanks.

ER FF in display ,DISPLAY IS LOCKED, LOUD NOISE


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

Error message Er FF


er ff means that the control board is not sensing evap fan motor operation this means either a bad fan motor ice in the fan motor or bad control board. you can verify fan operation by opening freezer door and feeling for old air blowing from back of freezer compartment. you will have to push in the light switch to get fan operation.
for corndo that has same problem you actually have a different problem. er dh means the control board is not sensing defrost heater operation. the most common culprit is a bad defrost sensor. message me back if you need instructions for trouble shooting..thx peyton

Thermostat shows "Err" "FF"


Well, this may be a solution, at least in our case. While were were unpacking the refrigerator and dumping food into coolers, we also unloaded the freezer, even though it appeared to still be running.

After clearing it out, we noticed that the icemaker device in the upper left corner was all iced up, like an old freezer does without self-defrosting. We thought our machine was a self-defroster and this made us suspicious.

We unplugged the appliance and defrosted this upside-down iceberg in the freezer. After it was cleared out, we plugged it back and and lo and behold, the thermostat came on! Here it is 12 hours later and it is still running.

So, it may not be the actual cause, but I can't come up with another solution at the moment. By the way, it makes us wonder if the error code "FF" that we had stood for "freezer fan". Perhaps that iceflow interrupted the fan or its circulation, somehow? In any event, other people with this same error code (FF) might check for icing forming around the icemaker.
