Question about Refrigerators
There is a high temp cutout that will cut power to the fridge when it trips. Go to the outside access and look on the round flue canister for some wires that are connected to a small disc In the center of that disc is a tiny little button. Gently push it in.

SOURCE: e3 error
I got mine fixed tonight! It was not that easy but can be done.
After my last post, I called the customer service of DeLonghi. The agent can only refer me to the authorized repair shops but she does not know what “E3” meant. There is no shop in NJ where I live, and the closest one is in CT! One of the two shops there knows right away the E3 is the fault of a condenser sensor. He mailed me the part ($25) and I took the covers off (be very careful to record where the screws are from ---- they are not all the same size/shape, and also there are two small tabs on the top holding two cover pieces together, so don’t force it to open or you will break it). There is only one part looks like the same as the replacement part I newly obtained and it has a metal clip attached on the copper coils. Carefully replace the sensor on the coil as you find previously and plug the other end to the control board. It sounds lengthy but once you open the cover it will all become clear to you. Be patient and this can be done. Very glad to see/hear it is working now again!
p.s., the store first mailed me the wrong part (on the plug-in end it has two ridges rather than one) so I have to call them again to explain and they mailed me a different one with a single ridge. Apparently there are two types (old and new model) for this model.

Looks like you have either a stuck drum (does not spin) or an electrical fault that make the washer think the drum is not moving.
From a 2006 Technical Bulletin:
E3: Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Specifically, it could be:
1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause.
2. Hall Sensor (integral part of motor) fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Unless you are really overloading your machine you likely have an electrical fault, or a failure in the drive train--especially if the problem is intermittent. Probably time to call in a technician.

Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!
Based off the information you provided if your refrigerator is displaying an "E3" error code you could be seeing a problem within the main control board or thermistor. I would suggest a reset to your appliance, this can clear any false codes, and you can do this by unplugging your appliance for roughly ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux refrigerator is showing an "E3" error code. However, it appears "E3" is an invalid error code. May I have you model number please? Typically you can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside cabinet of the fresh food compartment on the right hand side. With this information I can better assist you with pinpointing the issue. I look for forward to assisting you. -Matt
