This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.
The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.
You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.
You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.
The fan or the control is bad.

The freezer ice is probably building up because of a 'defrost cycle' issue. I have looked up the 'if' code for your machine. There is no mention of that fault. It is an LG right? Made for Kenmore. I have a service manual that is close, but not that s ...
Here is my problem in its entirety. I have GE side by side, ice and water in the door. The issue is the supply tube inside the box feeding the icemaker is actually working it's way out of the freezer. I put it back in place last week and in 4 or 5 days it literally worked its way back out. Now the water comes on at night for the icemaker and is forming the water fall of ice so to speak. Also, when I got everything put back together in efforts to get the icemaker working again, for some reas
Thanks for the clarification. This will be the cause of a failed valve coupling assembly. The line pressure is to strong for the valve coupling device. it is not holding properly. i would inspect the entire ICE Making module for correct fit at the l ...
We bought a GE PFSS6PKXASS about 2 years aand it worked fine until we noticed water leaking out from the back interior wall of the refrigerator section... it collects on the bottom of the fridge, partially freezes, then drips out along the freezer door. It is not coming from the icemaker but appears to be from the auto-defrost cycle. I tried to remove the back panel in the fridge to get access to the evaporator but once the screws were removed the panel would not come off. Also tried to clean ou

I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side Model 59502990. The freezer works great, but the refrigerator won't get very cold at all (maybe 55 if we are lucky). It appears that no air is getting through the vents at the top of the refrigerator in the back. When we push the door switch we don't feel any change in air movement coming out of the vents in the back/top of the refrigerator.
Does this model have a damper on the door switch? Which components are more likely to have failed? Are thes

I know this is a stupid question but is the water supply to my ice maker(ed25ue whirlpool)connected from the back of the freezer at the top?If so does the supply that goes to it run through the filter first and get connected with the plastic line or is it a seperate feed from a water source?I ask because what looks like what supplies the water to the icemaker is like an open trough coming from the connection in the back to the ice maker. Any help is appreciated
Water enters from a valve through the filter through either of two valves to either the water dispenser or the ice-maker . The water enters the ice maker through the small tube running up the back of the fridge and then into a spout inside. ...

Viking VCBB362 I turned the unit off to get rid of ice build up in the freezer. I turned the unit back on but the compressor did not come on. There is a code sequence on the electronic control board to manually start the compressor, do you know what it is.
Press Display on then press and hold Max Frz and Display off, you should hear 3 beeps and the compressor should start.It may also be that when you turned the unit off you hit the showroom switch that is located up behind the t ...

I am getting a 3 to 5 second loud buzzing from what sounds like the lower back of the unit on an intermittent basis. Both the refrigerator and freezer appear to be working fine and the fan comes on and off as normal. The icemaker also works normally. What could be causing the loud buzz?
The noise your hearing is your water valve to your icemaker.....i would guess you hear it every 30-40 mins? the click is the solenoid opening and the humm is the water passing through. May need to replace the valve. Use your water dispenser and see i ...
Just moved into a new how with a Viking DDSB423D. The icemaker was turned off. When I turned the ice maker back on, I started getting a slow leak under the front of the freezer side. When I turn ice maker off the leak stops. I am guessing that the filter has not been replaced for some time. Would this havwe anything to do with the leak? Is there anything else I can do, or do I need to have a technition come out to work on it?

We have a side by side kenmore refrigerator about 13 years old.A few days ago I went into the freezer and the ice cubes were water.Turned up the thermostat to coldest,heard fridge come on,things got cold again.Then things started melting again.turned the thermostat back and then to coldest setting and things getting cold again.Is it about time for a new fridge or could this be fixed? Thank you
Sounds like the problem is the cold control . I would clean the coils under neath and make sure the fans 's are both going . and then replace the cold control .. this will probably correct the problem .. **** ...
I have a Kenmore side by side #52552. Water came pouring out of the icemaker, inside the freezer, and was leaking out through the dispenser.
The water dispenser works fine
The rake arms work fine
Since cleaning everything up, no more water is getting to the icemaker.
Also, the middle plate between the fridge and freezer is hot--but this has been true for awhile without disrupting the icemaker.
Why is water getting to the dispenser but not to the icemaker?
Hi Patti,A couple of things could be going on here. I will assist with trouble shooting if you are up for it.First of all, the hot rail between the freezer and fresh food sections concerns me. This is an indication that the co ...

I have a Whirlpool model # ET1CHEXVB00 refridgerator. I just (few minutes ago) replaced the ice maker valve because water was no longer getting to the icemaker. Very shortly after I plugged the refridgerator back in and turned on the water, the icemaker went through one cycle and some water (mayber quarter cup) ran down the inside back of the freezer cabinet. Also one time recently (before I decided to replace the icemaker valve), I found several cups of water on the bottom of the freezer cab

My freezer seems to be working fine but the FFC is not getting cool (not getting air from the freezer) I took everything out and unplugged it for about 24 hrs. Then i took the back panel of the freezer of and made sure that it was all thawed out. I plugged it back in and everything seemed to be working fine. A few hours later there isn't any cold air coming into the FFC.

My LG GR-F218NI comes up with the message Er FF, I gather this means the freezer fan is not working. I can get it going again tempoararily by turning the fridge off and opening the (empty) freezer drawer for a while. The fridge then cools normally for 3-4 hours. The weather is very humid and this suggests to me that the freezer fan is getting iced up.
Does anyone know how to get at the freezer fan to check if it has ice around it or jamming the blades.
Alternatively the freezer fan is just bu

I have a kenmore bottom freezer model 596.65239402. The freezer is getting too cold. I have set it to the warmest setting with no luck. Last week I took the back plate in the freezer off and it was full of ice. I let it defrost and started it back up. Know the same thing is happening again. The freezer is too cold and I can see ice forming in the back on the coils and the refrigerator is starting to warm up.
Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and

The freezer side is getting cool but not freezing. I replaced the fan in the back of the freezer under the coils. I cleaned and checked all the coils to make sure they weren't the problem. The new fan doesn't come on and run either at any time. It feels cool to the touch on the sides toward the bottom of the freezer and the coils in the back are icing up but the freezer isn't freezing.
Get a meter ...find why the fan is not working...freezer will not work until the fan works ...
