Question about LG LFX25960 Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
Posted by Anonymous on
I had the same error code. The problem was that the fan had frozen. I defrosted the fridge/freezer completely (it was ok for me cause I have a spare fridge). Your problem possibly is a frozen fan problem

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. :)

SOURCE: The LG refrigerator ER FF fix
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.

I did this and it worked great (so far - 3 days now...). It took me a while to figure out, so here are some tips.
The panel is inside the freezer, the back wall. You should take off the door, the ice maker, all the shelves and the left rail to get it out. It will then lift up and pull forward.
I removed 3 bolts on either side of the door to remove it -- not sure if that's best/easiest, but it worked fine.
You need to remove all the shelves and the center piece that drops from the freezer ceiling and sits on 2 metal rails -- it provides the slider for the shelf on the right. Lift it up from the two metal rails and slide the bottom to the right to dislodge it. The top just fits into a depression in the ceiling of the freezer and the bottom has notches that line up with the metal rails. The metal rails pop up -- just lever a bit with a slotted screw driver on one end.
There are 3 phillips head screws that hold the left rail (whatever the thing is that the door slides on). Remove those and pull away from the wall and forward. There are two tabs at the back of the rail that will pull free with a tug.
The ice maker has 2 screws on top, one below and is plugged in. You only need loosen the top screws, then remove the bottom one and pull the plug free (which was kind of hard). The plug is in an insert in the back panel and I just left it in place and removed the insert from the back panel using a slotted screw driver in the small gaps around the edges. Lift the ice maker up and off the top screws and it's out.
There's one screw holding the middle of the back panel on -- remove that and pull up and forward to remove the panel. Make your cut and reverse all this and you're good to go.

ER FF is freezer fan motor failure code. this directs air into the fridge compartment from the freezer room. dead fan=warm fridge.
