Re: LG display error code FF IF
The FF error code is the freezer fan motor error. It could be a problem with your freezer fan motor or an issue with the control board not sending proper power to the board. If you remove the back panel you can check to make sure there is no ice restricting the fan motor from turning. If there is ice then check the icemaker fill tube and make sure its in place properly and not leaking down on the evap fan blade.

Yes, it has to touch the water. As the ice builds up the thickness sensor moves up and turns of the refrigeration and turns the heater on.

P1 is a indicator of a slow or clogged drain check to make sure that every thing is draining good if line is clear make sure pump is coming on to pump the water out of the bin. once all is clear unplug the unit for an hour then plug back in this will clear code unless you still have a drain issue.
I have the same problem as JJ1764... I keep getting the same error code ER IF and all the ice melted and water was everywhere... If I turn off the fridge and then turn again it clears for a few minutes but then goes back to the same thing...Why is this happening?
my suggestion is to start from the beginning! shut down the fridge for a couple of days store food somewhere else (obviously and see if you get much water at bottom. have mos and bucket nearby. blow into any hoses that are accessible. unplug fridge of course.
You posted under an incorrect model number, so can only give general info. IF is a code for ice room fan. It is a fan located in a plastic box in the upper left hand corner of the freezer. The IF code shows up if the control board does not get a feedback signal from the fan telling the control board that the fan is running. I'd check to see if there is some ice blocking the fan blade. If that is not the case, you will need a meter to do further diagnostics to find out if your problem is with the fan motor or the control board. (note: when you turn the icemaker off, the fan will no longer blow cold air into the ice room, and all the ice will melt. Also, when the icemaker bin is full, the same basic thing can happen. Steady use of ice or dumping the bin will prevent ice from melting in bin.) The fan runs on 12 to 16 volts DC (variable speed), and the feed back signal is about 4.5 volts DC.
your plastic water tube coming in to the icemaker is probably frozen needs to be taken out and remove ice not letting water come in to icemaker I have run on this alot in the field.This seems to happen [alot] when you turn off the water to the icemaker
There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.
Just had this same problem. We were away at Disney for four days - turned the icemaker off before we left. We have the LG french door double drawer freezer model. Came home, the ER IF code was displayed. Wouldn't dispense water or ice. Took the icebox out, and it was all frozen in the augers. Then I read on the door something to this effect - "if you turn off the icemaker, it will not continue to cool the ice. This will cause the ice to melt and leak out of the unit, and when it refreezes, the dispenser will not produce ice or water."
So, I took the ice box out, emptied it, reinstalled it, and the unit os making ice and dispensing water as I write.
Again, if you turn off the icemake, empty the ice box, or you will get the error message when you start the ice maker again.
