Question about Refrigerators

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.

I have the same error code, er 1f. The week before the code appeared, I noticed the change filter indicator was on. I have changed the filter but the error code is still showing.

    I had the sears repairman here today and discovered that the ER 1F code is for a bad fan motor for the in-door ice maker. He suggested that I defrost the freezer which sometimes melts the bit of ice stopping the fan and the code may go away. If that doesn't fix it then the fan motor will be replaced. I hope this info helps others as well (saves you from the service call fee)

    I am also getting the same error code er 1f and the ice is not staying frozen. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated. I have dumped the ice bucket and unplugged the refrig. After plugging the refrig back in, the error code was tempararily eliminated. However, it also returned.

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.

I faced the same problem for Kenmore elite Trio Model # 795.77543600 bottom freezer refrigerator. The issue as pointed out by Medeer on fixya.com, turned out to be the part called component assembly, part number 6615JB2005H. I got this replaced yesterday but for 4 hours I did not notice any cooling... so I thought it did not work.... but then in the morning I notice that the issue has been resolved, the refrigerator is cold and there is no eR dH error message. Thanks to all who shared on this site.

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!
