To remove the dispenser, it is tricky, and you have to take your time. Chances are some of the tabs will break but if you go slow you may get lucky. Start at the bottom and move up. Even with a couple broken it will still go back an look fine.
The board is located under this. Part number is 6871JB2061B. When you put it on, before you snap it back in place, make sure the water hose is sticking out. Oh and you have to take the ice funnel off first. Just pull down and it should come.

Good luck

I get an Error code Er if on my LG refrigerator, what can I do?

Hello Janet;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Based on your problem I do not need your model number. This is a high maintenance unit. You have a bottom freezer with the ice maker and bucket on the fresh food section door.

The error code IF is the ice maker fan. You have two fans, one for the freezer and one for the ice maker.

First, ice makers and ice buckets belong in the freezer section. When they are on the door they are exposed to the warm room air temperature and condensate forms freezing the ice cubs together. Then you open and close the fresh food section door you force warm air down the air vents to your ice maker fan and your ice maker fan freezes up and burns out trying to start.


Part #: 5209JA1044A Cost: $75.00

You can purchase it over the internet for a lot less.

Base on what you described, I suspect your ice maker fan over loaded your control board and damaged it.


Part #: EBR41956418 Cost: $125.00 You can get this over the internet for about $80.00 or less.

Now, how do you want to do this?

1.) You can pay for a $400.00-$450.00 service call?

2.) Or do it dirty. Kill the power to the ice maker fan and purchase ice cube trays and put them in your freezer.

a.) Purchase a new control board.

b.) Take the bottom kick plate off the front of the unit. You will need to pull the bottom freezer door out to do this. There are two fillips head screws holding this on. Remove the screws and the kicker plate, also called the toe plate.

c.) In the front there are 2 leveling screws. One on each side. These are hard to raise, you do not have much to grab on. I use channel locks. Turn counter clockwise to raise and clear the floor.

d.) Pull your unit out so you can get behind it.

e.) Behind the unit unplug the unit.

f.) On the left side there is a metal cover plate over your main control board.


h.) Remove the metal cover - unscrew.

I.) There are several white pins holding the board on. There is a small leg on each pin that must be pressed in to release the board.

j.) Systematically go around the control board disconnecting one connector at a time and connecting to the new board. Each connector has a tab to squeeze to release.

k.) Push the board back onto the white retaining pins.

l.) Now we are going to disconnect the freezer fan. On the control board each connector is marked with a number below it. Look for, "CON 7". You are going to cut the two wires to disconnect power to your ice maker fan.

j.) On the Con 7, on the left cut the yellow wire with the black stripe and the solid blue wire. CUT THESE WIRES ABOUT 2" AWAY FROM THE CONNECTOR IN THE EVENT YOU WISH TO REPLACE THE ICE MAKER FAN IN THE FUTURE.

I would have thought with all of the recalls under warrantee that LG has had on this model that they would have stopped manufacture.

Where in the mountains is your unit?

Icemaker won't make ice. We tried using a hairdryer on the mechanism, but that didn't help.

Send your model number and I will be happy to assist in answering your questions. Model numbers are critical to every solution and to quess without the model numbe would be the wrong solution. I will need you to click on my profile or you can answer the question below tell me if water is frozen in ice maker or fill tube behind ice maker. I am a Maytag/Whirlpool Technician and can follow through the service manual or contact Whirlpool directly. Thanks, Sea Breezesea_breeze_43.jpg

GE refrigerator, ice melts in ice bin

Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

Ice maker makes ice but comes out wet

Your ice maker may have an adjustment if behind the front cover has a set screw to plus or minus the amount of water. If it is controlled with a control board it will need to be replaced. Now if for some reason the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator is sticking open or leaking too much water that may be the problem. The replacement Ice Maker part number 732489 and appears as a kit with the water valve included, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker water not shutting off

OK, The ice maker you hooked up the water to has a thermostat or a control board behind the front cover of the ice maker. I will need the model number of your GE to help you locate the problem. The photo below will show the most likely locations. Now because your ice make has not been used and just stayed inside the refrigerator for so long the controls inside the ice maker are stuck on telling the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator to stay on or you can pull the refrigerator away from the wall and unplug the two wire connector that turns on the control valve side to the ice maker and if the water continues to flow then the water control valve will need replaced. Please let me know your results and rate and ask more questions as we solve this problem, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ive got a GE profile and my ice maker stopped working. I get water through the door so i took the ice maker line off to see if it was clogged or something. its weird no water comes out the ice maker side...

GE made different versions of the model listed above your post. If the Ice Tray is empty pour tap water into the tray and let it freeze. If it empties on its own, then I would tell you that the water control valve for the ice make is defective. For a few years the ice maker came with an electronic control board behind the front cover on ice maker. To make sure I will need you to look for the correct model number on locations pointed out below in photo. You also are welcome to get answers from me or our sites free. Enter your model number in the search feature and this will pull up the model with pictures and parts. Either way let me know what you find and if I can help you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze click on link below

We may need to test the water control valve on the back also, here
is a picture of the dual valve

Error code IF or 1F not making ice model #795,77562... Sears/LG

You posted under an incorrect model number, so can only give general info. IF is a code for ice room fan. It is a fan located in a plastic box in the upper left hand corner of the freezer. The IF code shows up if the control board does not get a feedback signal from the fan telling the control board that the fan is running. I'd check to see if there is some ice blocking the fan blade. If that is not the case, you will need a meter to do further diagnostics to find out if your problem is with the fan motor or the control board. (note: when you turn the icemaker off, the fan will no longer blow cold air into the ice room, and all the ice will melt. Also, when the icemaker bin is full, the same basic thing can happen. Steady use of ice or dumping the bin will prevent ice from melting in bin.) The fan runs on 12 to 16 volts DC (variable speed), and the feed back signal is about 4.5 volts DC.

Error code Er IF is on the display and noone from sears can tell me what it is, does anyone know?

ER IF means error icing fan, the problem is with a little board that is behind the water dispenser. Change this board and you will be in business.
