Question about Refrigerators
The ER of course stood for error and the FF indicates it was in the freezer fan motor. There was no fan motor signal for more than 65 seconds. This can be caused by a bad motor, bad connections to the motor or something obstructing the fan blade.
I can tell you that simply unplugging the fridge and letting it defrost isn't going to work. You need to get take it apart.
I had the Er FF code about 2 months ago and let the freezer defrost for a couple hours and it started working again. Then two days ago I got the error again. This time I decided to get inside there.
First and foremost, UNPLUG the fridge and TURN OFF the water!
Next empty everything out of the freezer and start taking it apart. You have to get everything out of it to get that back panel off. This includes the ice maker and the rails that the drawers slide on.
Now that the freezer is completely empty there are two screws that hole the back panel on. In my freezer one is a white screw high in the center and one was a gold screw in the little panel that the ice maker hooked up to.
Next grab the back panel by the little fins on the top of it in the middle. Give it a good firm pull, but take care not to yank it too far, it's still connected by wires back there. When I pulled my panel out I found a HUGE chunk of ice on the top of the panel just to the right of the fan that feeds cold are to the fridge. Get that thing off of there taking care not to damage the foam insulation and watch those shiny metal fins that are behind the panel.
While you're putting it back together try to dry everything off as much as possible (I tried see the bright side of the whole evolution and realized I could really clean my freezer).
Once it's all put back together plug that baby in, turn on the water, and enjoy the next four hours as it gets back to being cold.
I would say you need moderate tinkering skill to do this. If you only own one screwdriver and you never use it you should probably call someone who can or a repair person.

This problem is due to excess frost buildup in the freezer coil.
Defrost is the problem.
The defrost problem could occur due to three reasons
Usually the defrost timer could solve this issue.It may be located below or back of the refrigerator.Some times it may be located in the side to for side refrigerator.
Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise until you hear one audible click. That puts the system into defrost mode. If the system restarts after 30-35 minutes.
Then there is no problem with Defrost timer.
2)Heater and defrost thermostat is located behind the back wall of the freezer section.
This only controls the Heat.After the Defrost timer stops it makes the system warm.
Defrost thermostat could be defective.
So replace it accordingly.If you don't have hand on in it,take it to the nearest service center.
For temporary you have switch off until the frost melts and on it again
