Whirlpool ff 400 elite, probable pcb fault

I've a whirlpool FF400 Elite fridge, Everytime i switch it on the cooler fan runs for abt 5 secs and the fridge turns off, ive consulted the whirlpool agents in my country, but they did no good, they said that there had been a current overload and that the pcb and the compressor had been burnt, i had to pay 4 the pcb but the compressor was under warranty, Then the fridge worked after, but it had some unusual sounds, and worst of all ice started to form inside the fridge, and the electricity bill tribled after one month of use, i compaired the previous months bills and it was a big difference the units count had doubled, and now the fridge stopped working, but sometimes late night i saw it working, then again in the morning it stops working, all my fod gets spoiled, ive contacted the agents but they refuse to repair the fridge saying that its working fine, The fridge has no time to switch on, it all of a sudden starts working as if a ghost turned it on, please advise

The agent who repaired it, has an obligation to rectify the issue, sounds like they did a quick fix, out of the ordinary question I know, but does the fridge light come on when opening the door???, if it does not, they did not replace the ECU, sounds like your unit only working once in defost cycle then shuts down on normal cycle.(**** about), get your repairer to rectify the issue or report them.

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

The display will stay on normal for about 5 min and then give me a Er FF. What to do?


problem may be the main pcb or evaporator fan motor. this unit has several problems. if the model# starts with a 795 it was made by LG. the er ff code is caused most of the time from frost building up around fan motor. this can also be caused by freezer liner sagging at the top of freezer causing frost build up, sears has a service flash for this that is covered by the manufacture. service flash sf46-512. iwould call sears and find out if your model is on this service flash.

I have a Kenmore Elite Side by Side about 6yrs old. It is working (fan is running, lights are on) just not producing chilled air. Any Thoughts?


Check that the condenser is not iced up and check that the air ducts are not iced up. Easiest way is to deforest the s/s entirely. If the Fridge is the problem and the freezer is OK then also check the electric shutter valve at the rear top of the fridge compartment on the side next to the freezer. This is where the cold air is sent into the fridge compartment by the cooling fan and air ducting. These do have a tendency to ice up and then breakdown so they stay shut and the Fridge keeps warm or they stay open and the fridge ices up and freezes the contents. Contrary to beliefe these types of FF are not totally frost free.

My trouble codes are Er FF on my kenmore elite


This is an error code that pertains to the evaporator motor but could also be the main board.
If the evaporator motor is running, the main board will probably need to be replaced.
It could be a wiring problem but it's not very likely.

If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made, at the motor and board, to determine which component has failed.
These checks require a meter and can be difficult to make, even for a technician.

Kenmore Elite Trio Refrigerator not cooling


No, it is not a failed condenser. You need to see if the compressor is running though. When it runs you shaould have a fan in the freezer running, a fan underneath the fridge running, and the compressor should be running. I would be willing to bet that either the compressor is bad, or the start relay on the compressor.

Er FF ON THE BORD


FF usually means the freezer fan is not working. If the fridge is cooling poorly, check to see if the fan inside is running while the compressor is running. If not, and if there's no ice jamming it, then you need a new evaporator fan. If the fridge is cooling normally and the only symptom is the error code, then it could be a problem in the electronic control.
