The fan may be blocked by Ice. try warming up the area where the fan is and see if it will release it. Try turning the fan blade with a wooden stick to see if it's free otherwise the fan may need to be replaced. Provide your model number found in the fridge food section of the refrigerator

I have an LG fridge display giving me ER F1 code. i can unplug the fridge and plug it back in and the display resets for about 2 minutes and the the code comes back?


The ER 1F code usually means that there is a problem with the ice compartment fan, the ice maker motor or one of the control boards (the one for the ice maker or the main control unit). You can try resetting the refrigerator by leaving it unplugged for a day. Next check for ice build up on the fan that is blocking it from turning. Usually, if the fan hasn't been turning, you will have to at minimum replace the motor. It will burn out trying to force the fan to turn.

Sears Parts Direct has a diagram of the LFX23961SW case parts here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/lg-refrigerator-parts/model-LFX23961SW/3204/0161000/K0810254/00001.html . The fan motor is part 405G.

I hope this helps.

What does message Er IF mean?


LG refrigerator "Er IF" error code is the "Icemaker Fan Error" message.T his error code indicates a problem with the fan that controls the unit's ice production. If this problem occurs because of ice buildup, unplugging the unit for 3 to 4 hours and allowing it to thaw may fix the issue. Call customer service if that doesn't work.

We get no water or ice from control panel. On panel it says Er iF. What does that mean and how can we fix it. We have tried resetting the power and it goes back for a second then returns to Er iF.


Er IF - Ice-maker Fan Error - This can be caused by frost accumulation on or around the ice maker fan. Unplug the unit for 3-4hoursto allow this to melt off. If error code persists, call customer care to check & replace ice maker fan motor.Thanks.

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.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

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.

Error message


Hello gravyblast.
Welcome to Fixya.


You said, your Kenmore Elite Trio, model 795.7756 or 7757 has an error message simply reading ER IF. No pressing of buttons, or combination thereof changes anything. Also, the ice maker has stopped working although it is turned on.
Can anyone help?
I cannot pull the refrigerator out to unplug and reboot it, thus I don't know what to do.

Try tripping the breaker off for 5 minutes and then see if this method resets the system?
Do not turn it back on for at least tree minutes. That's why I said, Five!!!

Lets see how it resets while I look your fridge up.
Write back. Huuum

Kenmore Elite Trio model 795.7757


Hello fergust
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, I have just purchased this unit and switch it on.After some 3 minutes error message appeared on the front door screen . Message ---- ER CF Neither fridge,freezer or ice maker are working. What is the problem.


Did you turn the refrigerator and freezer on to the proper cooling adjustments as in the user manual?
Is the ice maker hooked up to the water line and in the on position?
Did you use the free help line if you are doing it your elf?


While I look it up, you can try to reset the system by plugging the fridge for 5 minutes, or if you can not reach the plug, then throw the breaker for 5 minutes.
Not less than 3 minutes. That is why I sad, 5minutes.
Usually this will do it! let me know as I look up the error codes.

Getting Error Code "er if"


I posted a similar problem with the er if code. I think I have isolated it down to the ice maker fan problem. It appears that the master unit is not getting the correct code from the ice maker fan. I managed to get rid of the problem by dumping the ice, turning the ice maker off (there is a switch next to the ice maker), and unplugging the unit for three minutes and plugging it back in. However, I am without an ice maker. But the problem has not returned and the rest of the unit seems to work normally.

Hope this helps.
