I have an LG fridge display giving me ER F1 code. i can unplug the fridge and plug it back in and the display resets for about 2 minutes and the the code comes back?


The ER 1F code usually means that there is a problem with the ice compartment fan, the ice maker motor or one of the control boards (the one for the ice maker or the main control unit). You can try resetting the refrigerator by leaving it unplugged for a day. Next check for ice build up on the fan that is blocking it from turning. Usually, if the fan hasn't been turning, you will have to at minimum replace the motor. It will burn out trying to force the fan to turn.

Sears Parts Direct has a diagram of the LFX23961SW case parts here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/lg-refrigerator-parts/model-LFX23961SW/3204/0161000/K0810254/00001.html . The fan motor is part 405G.

I hope this helps.

Why does my control panel show er 1f


Had the same problem with my Kenmore Elite Series Refrigerator. Upon searching for the answer the closest and simplest answer was a faulty fan specific to the ice maker compartment. This fan is suppose to regulate the humidity in the ice maker, but sometimes the humidity becomes too high and that causes the fan to freeze. (A tell tell sign is when your Ice Maker shoot freezes up, or water begins to drip from the Ice Maker and puddles up in the catch tray or on the floor in front of the Refrigerator). When the fan becomes frozen, that causes the 1F error display to come on. There was also a second reason that was consistent with a faulty circuit board, but that did not match as closely as the faulty fan.
Most answers directed you to replace the fan...but I gave this a try first, and by the way my option has solved my problem fan for over two years now. Simply .. open the refrigerator door and turn the Ice Maker off. Then take the ice tray out and dump any remaining ice and clean and dry off the tray and the ice shoot that the ice drops through into your glass. Leave the Ice Maker off for 3-5 days, giving the fan enough time to thaw and dry out. You will have to live with the inconvenience of no Ice Maker for that amount of time .. but you can do that rather than paying an enormous fee to have it serviced in home (unless you're still under warranty). After 3-5 days has expired simple turn the Ice Maker back on. If by any chance this doesn't work..try it a second time but leave the Ice Maker off 5-7 days. Honestly, this should solve the problem. Mine is still working flawlessly. God Bless

Samusung RFG297HDRS Ice maker not cold enough to produce ice.


Suspect that the rubber boot that runs all around the edge of your freezer door is deformed, allowing warm air to seep into your freezer. You will see where your temp sensor is located by clicking into the site of a parts supplier like ShopJimmy.com and pulling up their photo of the guts of your unit.

Water flow tube on ice maker leaking by causing ice blockage


When the ice maker calls for water, the valve sends water to the ice maker in the appropriate amount and then shuts off, sending no more water until the ice maker calls for it again. If the water fill line is freezing up, this will cause a leak the next time the ice maker calls for water. The water has to go somewhere. The problem is more than likely the the water valve. It is not shutting off completely and it is allowing a small trickle of water to be constantly sent to the ice maker. This causes the fill line to freeze up and clog. Replace the water valve and defrost the water fill line and solve the problem.

I don't have the service manual for this model without having to purchase one but I have a link to Whirlpool Service Manuals which is very much the same when it comes to diagnostics. There are several reasons that may cause this problem as you described. They are water control valve sticking causing warm water to continue to flow over freeze plate and stopping ice production. A defective condenser fan or a very dirty condenser coil.

The freezer isn't making alot of ice. Can the hose behind the ice maker freeze?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

When a refrigerator slows down ice production it is usually the result of poor air-flow through the evaporator coils. The poor air-flow is due to ice build up on the evaporator coils. The ice build up happens because the unit is not defrosting properly or the evaporator fan is not running at full speed.

To answer your question "Can an Ice-maker tube freeze?" Yes, they can and do freeze but when they do freeze that is caused by a defective inlet water valve that is leaking water by when it is supposed to be shut off. It can freeze if some one set the temp control to MAX cold. Additionally when they do freeze and the Ice-maker cycles the plastic hose on the back of the unit pops out of the ice maker tube and each cycle starts porting ice maker fill water on the floor.

This may sound odd.. but. Perform a manual defrost by removing the freezer contents and directing a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (Makes a water mess so do not leave it unattended) The return the unit to normal service and after 8 hours start watching the amount of ice produced. (Should be normal for 2 days!) If after 2 days the ice production slows again you have an automatic defrosting problem that is causing the ice build up on the evaporator coils.

If you need any more assistance please include your complete model number in any future responses.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

Water is freezing in the supply line for the ice maker


This usually means you have a weeping water valve. The water valve doesn't completely shut down after filling the icemaker. This deposits a staedy flow of water which freezes and accumulates in the tube, eventually blocking it off. You would need to replace the water valve which is located at the rear of the refrigerstor. One othe thing to check would be the water supply to the refrig. If the water dispenser is working fine then that isn't an issue. However, if that is flowing slowly you would need to replace the saddle valve which is tapping into your house water supply.

Ice maker makes very little Ice and the cubes are small.


The amount of ice is not dependent upon water flow, well as long as you do have flow, when enough water is in the maker it will shut off the supply.....ice quantity is dependent upon the length of the freezing cycle, the shorter the cycle the more harvests per hour. Adjust the timer so that you get complete freezing, but just barely
