Question about LG LFX25960 Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Display showed ER FF, freezer fan was not running, but ice fan was. I Pulled the freezer fan (there was no ice blocking it), I checked it with another 12v source and it did not spin. Then I checked the ice fan with a 12v source, it also didn't spin. When I put the ice fan back in, it wouldn't spin anymore and now I'm getting ER IF. Is it possible I blew out that motor while testing it and now both are shot? Also, I've had a lot of problems with frost and read that there is an upgraded mother board, could someone please give me the part number for the new mobo?

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.

On the display on door. The message says Er FF. What is this and how do it clear. When I press buttons, nothing changes.


Er FF is Error, Freezer Fan. The fan blade in the freezer is most likely blocked by some ice or frost. Clear that and the control will see the feedback from the fan showing that the motor is turning and the code will clear.

What does ER FF mean on my Kenmore Elite bottom


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error ff is freezer fan fault. This usually happens when either the rear board has gone bad or the freezer fan itself is bad and needs to be replaced. To check what is causing the error you can start with checking the fan which is located behind the back wall inside the freezer. Also check the rear board as it might not be putting the fridge into defrost long enough and is causing the ice to build up in the freezer and thus stopping the freezer fan from turning and so causing ff error. Leave the fridge unplugged for 24hrs which will melt all the ice then plug it back if still the issue is not resolved and you hear the fan running then it is the rear board that needs to be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Door display reads ER FF


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.

What does message: Er FF mean?


That means the freezer fan is blocked, you need to order a new High voltage board, the ice has built up enough from not defrosting that it is interfering with the operation of the evaporator fan.

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

LG refrigerator lrsc26944tt error code ER FF


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. :)

ER FF is a freezer fan error. Basically the mainboard is not receiving a feedback signal from the freezer fan motor within 65 seconds. When this happens the error code will come up and then none of the buttons will work.

You can clear out the error code by unplugging and plugging the machine back in. The error code will come back if the problem persists. Check around the freezer fan motor fan blades to see if ice buildup is interfering with the operation. Clearing out this ice may fix the issue.

If the problem comes back, then the fan motor may be getting ready to go out or the unit may not be defrosting properly.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Error Code Er FF


ER FF - found in another post = Error Freezer Fan. Removed freezer back panel (inside freezer), defrosted ice build up around fan. Error message gone for now. Easy fix at midnight - 20 minutes. Will be looking into ice-up cause.
