I had the same problem. 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'd 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.


Hope this helps!

Error message O FF


Unplug the refer and leave unplugged for a full FIVE minutes. This will reboot the CPU and fixes about 98% of all problems with the .
the Kenmore Elites.
If you can't pull the refer out for some reason, try switching off the circuit breaker instead.

Kenmore model 795.71306 refrigerator is displaying an ER FF code on the frigerator temperature control


This error code Er FF indicates a problem with the main control board. When the power cord is disconnected for 30 seconds and then reconnected, it resets the board. Sometimes this procedure corrects the problem and sometimes it does, for only a short period of time. Usually in this case, the main board will need to be replaced.
Here is the board to order.

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.

I have a Kenmore Refr. Model # 795.77563600 has a Error FF


The FF error code indicates that the freezer fan motor is defective.
You need a new main control board and evaporator fan motor.
The fridge is made by LG, but rebranded as Kenmore by Sears. First 3 digits is the tell. You can call Sears for parts.
