The LG refrigerator ER FF fix

Hi, I came across your post on the LG refrigerator fix for the ER FF code. I'm having the same problem, but I'm a little unsure of what exactly you're cutting. Do you think you give me a little more info on where you are cutting the insulation from?

Thanks,
Jim

I had this same problem, with the thing freezing up, and this is how I solved it -- I took everything out of the fridge, I defrosted it for a few WEEKS (yes, weeks), cleaned the thing thoroughly, replaced the water filter, and fired it up again. So far, it's been two months, the thing is quiet as a grave, and running like a champ.

I think if you let ice form around the condenser fan, it will not go away easily. I tried the hair dryer trick, the "unplug it for a while" trick, but nothing worked. After a week or so I'd hear that grinding sound (which I think was the condenser fan and a huge chunk of ice doing their thing).

This refrigerator doesn't like to be opened a lot, and it doesn't like a door being left open, even a tiny bit, at all. The right door of the refrig can stay slightly open without the annoying beep happening, and the bottom freezer can also be slightly ajar and the beep won't go off. It's a trick to get everyone in the family to pay attention to this and make sure that the doors are all closed TIGHTLY, particularly the freezer door.

I called up the (not terribly helpful) LG people and they denied a systemic problem with the frig, and they also denied that cutting insulation was a good idea.

I am not sure what the truth is, but so far, so good with the lengthy defrost. Of course, if you don't have a spare frig, or you're not prepared to live out of a cooler for many days (I do think you need several days to get that massive block of ice melted) to try this fix, you may not be interested in it.

Refrigerator displaying error "ER FF".


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 accumulationon or around the freezer fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4 hours to allowthis to melt off. If error code persists, call Customer Service.

Hope this helps.

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.

LG refrigerator lrsc26944tt error code ER FF


I'm no major appliance repairman. However, after reading several posts, I investigated the issue further since I received an ER FF on the front panel. I have a LFX25960SW refrigerator. I pulled the top and bottom baskets out, and was able to take the back panel out from inside. There was a solid block of ice built up around both fans and wires. I took a blow dryer and gradually melted the ice around the fans and wires. Then, as I was able, I pulled the remaining ice chunks off of the wires. I put the thing back together and it cleared the message. My wife says no more LG appliances for us. :)

Error Code Er FF


ER FF - found in another post = Error Freezer Fan. Removed freezer back panel (inside freezer), defrosted ice build up around fan. Error message gone for now. Easy fix at midnight - 20 minutes. Will be looking into ice-up cause.

Error code ER FF


The error indicates the freezer fan is not functioning properly. The fan supplies cold air to the refrigerator that is why it seems warmer.
The fan may be frozen, try unplugging it for a few hours to let it thaw. Also check to see if something may have gotten into the vent holes in the freezer that could be blocking the fan from turning.
