My 2 year old LG LFX23961ST refrigerator started showing error code Er IF. In searching help here,
I found out it meant the problem was with the Ice maker Fan. When I checked the ports where the cold air blows into the Ice maker compartment, there was no cold air coming out (you have to hold the door switch in to turn on the fan). I removed the ice maker module (two screws) and unplugged it. When I closed the door, the fan started running, but was making a rattling noise. I suspected ice build up.
Emptying out the freezer compartment, I pulled the rear cover of the compartment off and found what I had suspected. Cleaned out the ice, put everything back together and Voila! Everything working again.
As I write this, I can hear ice dropping into the ice holding tray. Not sure yet why the whole ice blockage thing happened though. Will keep an eye on it. It's been several hours since the repair and no issues. All seems well. It's not rocket science. If you can use a screwdriver, you can fix it too.

We have a Kenmore top freezer fridge model 501-66922. Last night it stopped working. The interior lights do not come on and the fridge does not run. the led lights for temperature etc do work. The refrigerator temp showed an error code of Er and the freezer one a dH. Do you have any idea what is going on here.
We noticed the same error ER FF on our display this morning. And the fan was making the same loud-troubled noise.So far I unloaded the ice from the ice maker and turned off the icemaker. The noise stopped, but the error still insists on hanging on. My husband is working, and I am certainly not able to move that monster to get behind and start messing with the freezer back cover! So what's left? Repair man? We had this unit for almost two years, and it's suppose to last without problems for awhil
If you turned off the ice maker, I suggest you unplug the ice maker connection cord so the frig system is not compromised by any default in the ice maker. Next, unplug the frig from the electric receptacle and wait 5 minutes, then re plug. This many ...

A couple of months after I purchased my Kenmore Elite Bottom freezer I got the error message Er 1F and the ice maker stopped working. Because I shipped it out of the country I was not able to have it repaired under warranty. Phone calls to the service centre led me to buy a new fan motor which I installed but still got the same message after a couple of hours. Any idea what I can do ? The water dispenser is working ok. Hope you can help Steve

LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator
Samsung 4-door refrigerator RM255BARB-XAA suddenly quit dumping ice. The displayed temperature of the freezer will read -10 degrees, but is actually 21 degrees when measured. The refrigerator compartment is also approx. 10 degrees higher than displayed. The lower bins are warmer than the requested temp settings. Problem is not related to freon; all fans and compressor appear to be working. Self-diagnostic displayed code 25, which is a 'Uart communication error.' We replaced the main PCB board, w
Danby DWC283BLS wine frige - Unit suddenly stopped cooling. No error codes, unit has power, etc.
When the unit is plugged in the internal lower fans come on, and after a few seconds you can hear a relay at the compressor click, but the compressor does not come on. After a short while you can hear the relay click again.
What do I look for, and how would test any suspect parts?
Thanks very much.
It sounds like the overload relay and start ptc has failed.if you have a clamp meter you can attach it to one of the power wires leading to the compressorand see what it reads when the unit tries to engage.the normally operating range should be 1.2- ...

Kenmore side-by-side: The vent got blocked & made the refrigerator stop working because the fan got frozen over by the air not being able to circulate, we defrosted it all & the fan runs, but every few weeks the fridge stops staying cold, as if it defrosts but doesn't start back up again, so we have to turn it off overnight & start it up again in the morning & it works for another few weeks. We don't put anything close to the vents anymore, but it still happens. The freezer seems to overfreeze a

I have an Amana bottom freezer fridge model ARB2517CSR the freezer stopped working I cleaned the coils and the fan was working and the fridge was making a buzzing sound.
The sound stopped, so did the fan and it hasn's started since. Been an hour. The compressor seems really hot.
If the coils were really dirty, the compressor is probably just overheated. Let it cool down overnight then try again. If it still won't stay running it needs serviced. Could be the start relay or internal overload/overheat sensor in the compresso ...
