Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Er IF is an Icemaker Fan Error which can be caused by frost accumulation on or around the icemaker fan. You’ll need to unplug the unit for 24 hours to allow this to melt off. 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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Er is on my refrigerator? what does that mean


Does it just show "er" or does it have "er" and two more characters? The "er" means there is some sort of problem, and the other two characters will indicate what kind of problem. If it's just showing "er" alone, I not sure what that means.

What does message Er IF mean?


LG refrigerator "Er IF" error code is the "Icemaker Fan Error" message.T his error code indicates a problem with the fan that controls the unit's ice production. If this problem occurs because of ice buildup, unplugging the unit for 3 to 4 hours and allowing it to thaw may fix the issue. Call customer service if that doesn't work.

What does the message "Er


Hi

Error Code "Er FF" 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. This can be caused by frost accumulation on or around the freezer fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4 hours to allow this to melt off. If error code persists, call Customer Service.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

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.

Problems for Refrig. Kenmore Elite


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.

My Kenmore Elite 79577563600 is showing Er 1F. What does that mean? I cannot adjust temp or ice or anything.


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.

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.

I have a lg lfx25960sb,it is showing ER IF code on the panel above ice /water door,also not making ice?


ER IF indicates that the ice maker fan is not working. The fan is probably frozen. Remove the fan duct and housing at the back of the freezer and you may be able to defrost the ice in the fan enclosure. It will not defrost sufficiently by turning the freezer off for 2 to 4 hours as LG suggests. The fan may have frozen because of high humidity or because the defrost cycle is not working. If your unit is still under warranty LG should fix it by replacing the fan, duct panel and control board with new ones that have been re-engineered to prevent this problem.
