Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Thermostat shows "Err" "FF"

Similar to another reader,. our kenmore bottom freezer (french-door) model displays ER on the left side and FF on the right side. We unplug the fridge and plug it back in. It goes away for a bit, but returns.

Refrigerator model #f795.77302600.

So, what part is broken and where do I get it and how do I replace it? Thanks for all of your help and assistance!

    An addendum - the bottom freezer appears to still be working. But the icemaker, which we do not use, is all frozen over; we are defrosting it at the moment. We have unplugged the appliance.

Well, this may be a solution, at least in our case. While were were unpacking the refrigerator and dumping food into coolers, we also unloaded the freezer, even though it appeared to still be running.

After clearing it out, we noticed that the icemaker device in the upper left corner was all iced up, like an old freezer does without self-defrosting. We thought our machine was a self-defroster and this made us suspicious.

We unplugged the appliance and defrosted this upside-down iceberg in the freezer. After it was cleared out, we plugged it back and and lo and behold, the thermostat came on! Here it is 12 hours later and it is still running.

So, it may not be the actual cause, but I can't come up with another solution at the moment. By the way, it makes us wonder if the error code "FF" that we had stood for "freezer fan". Perhaps that iceflow interrupted the fan or its circulation, somehow? In any event, other people with this same error code (FF) might check for icing forming around the icemaker.

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.

ER FF code


This is an error code that pertains to the evaporator motor but could also be the main board.
If the evaporator motor is running, the main board will probably need to be replaced.
It could be a wiring problem but it's not very likely.

If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made, at the motor and board, to determine which component has failed.
These checks require a meter and can be difficult to make, even for a technician.
