Question about LG Refrigerators
Refrigerator has error code ER IF on front panel. I'm told by LG that this stands for "error ice fan". Unplugging refrig for 3 - 4 hrs per recomendation did not help. Sears technician took a bunch of panels apart today, concluded along with supervisor on phone after 2 hrs that Ice Fan indeed does not work. Now rescheduled to replace circuit board (this will be the second time!) and Ice Fan. Seems to me that if he had the right diagnostic tools that he could have come to that conclusion WITHOUT taking apart the refrigerator. Isn't there some kind of diagnostic tool that plugs into the control board to read faults?? Is this a common problem? Refrigerator was purchased in Oct 2007.
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.
