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.

Hi, here are the error codes and meanings for your Refrigerator
Error Code, All Error Codes will have an ER on the left side, followed by the error on the right: Er IF - Icemaker Fan Error - This can be caused by frostaccumulation on or around the icemaker fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4hours to allow this to melt off. If error code persists, call CustomerService. Er FF - Freezer Fan Error - 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. For remaining error codes, try unplugging the unit for a couple ofminutes to reset the unit. If the error code persists, call CustomerService Er FS - Freezer Sensor Error Er rS - Refrigerator Sensor Error Er ds - Defrost Sensor Error Er dH - Defrost Heater Error Er CF - Cooling Motor Error Er CO - Communications Error
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.
Hi,The FF error code indicates that the
freezer fan motor is defective. You could also get this code if ice is
preventing the fan from turning. Please set up service for refrigerator before the fan motor gets worse !
It's written like this in the repair manual: Which means what I just wrote above about the fan motor!!
Error detection category: Abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for Mechanic Room
Error Display: FF Error generation factors: It is caused when F/B signal isn’t over 115 seconds during BLDC FAN motor operating
Remarks: Poor BLDC Motor connection, DRIVE IC, and TR.You can check the below trick, if that might work on your model :-
Pull the top and bottom baskets out, and take the back
panel out from inside. There would be asolid block of ice built up around
both fans and wires. Take a blow dryer and gradually melt the ice
around the fans and wires. Then, pull the remaining
ice chunks off of the wires. Then put the thing back together and it should clear the message.
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.
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.
The error indicates the freezer fan is not functioning properly. The
fan supplies cold air to the refrigerator that is why it seems warmer.
The fan may be frozen, try unplugging it for a few hours to let it
thaw. Also check to see if something may have gotten into the vent
holes in the freezer that could be blocking the fan from turning.
