LEDItemTrouble ContentsDiagnostic Method
R-1-aIcemaker Sensor ErrorDisplay error: separation of sensor housing part, contact error, disconnection, short circuit. Display error of detecting temperature of sensor: more than 149°F (+65°C) or less than -58°F (-50°C)When checking the voltage of MAIN PCB CN90 #3 to CN90 #4: should be between 4.5 to 1.0V.
R-1-bRefrigerator Sensor ErrorWhen checking the voltage of MAIN PCB CN30 #6 to CN75 #1: should be between 4.5 to 1.0V.
R-1-cRefrigerator Defrost Sensor ErrorWhen checking the voltage of MAIN PCB CN #7 to CN75 #1: should be between 4.5V to 1.0V.
R-1-dRefrigerator Fan ErrorDisplay error during operation of fan motor: feed back signal line contact error, separation of motor wire, motor errorVoltage of MAIN PCB CN75 orange to gray should be between 7v to 12 V.
R-1-eIcemaker ErrorDisplay error: ice making kit is harvested more than 3 times and level error. Note: Apply to the applicable icemaker model.After replacing icemaker, check the operation by turning the appliance ON again.
R-1-gRefrigerator Defrost ErrorDisplay error: separation of fresh food compartment defrost heater housing part, contact error, disconnection, short circuit or temperature fuse errorAfter separating MAIN PCB CN70, CN71, from PCB, check the resistance value between CN70 white to CN71 orange.
Display error: the fresh food compartment defrosting does not finish. Defrost is heating continuously for more than 80 minutes.It should be 102 ohms ±7%. (Resistance value is varied by the input power.) Check 0 ohm: heater short,00 ohm: wire/ bimetal open.
F-1-aAmbient Sensor ErrorDisplay error: sensor housing separation, contact error, disconnection, short circuit. Display error by detecting temperature of sensor: more than 149°F (+65°C) or less than -58°F (-50°C)Check the voltage of MAIN PCB CN32 #1 to #4. It should be between 4.5V to 1.0V.
F-1-bFreezer Sensor ErrorCheck the voltage of MAIN PCB CN30 #3 to CN75 #1. It should be between 4.5V to 1.0V.
F-1-cDefrost Sensor ErrorCheck the voltage of MAIN PCB CN30 #4 to CN75 #1. It should be between 4.5V to 1.0V.
F-1-dFreezer Fan ErrorDisplay error during operation of fan motor: feed back signal line contact error, motor wire separation, motor errorVoltage of MAIN PCB CN75 yellow to gray should be between 7V to 12V.
F-1-eCondenser Fan ErrorDisplay error during operation of fan motor: feed back signal line contact error, motor wire separation, motor errorVoltage of MAIN PCB CN75 sky blue to gray should be between 7V to 12V.
F-1-fIce Room Sensor ErrorDisplay error: sensor housing separation, contact error, disconnection, short circuit. Display error by detecting temperature of sensor: more than 149°F (+65°C) or less than -58°F (-50°C)Check the voltage of MAIN PCB CN32 #3 to CN75 #1. It should be between 4.5V to 1.0V.
F-1-gFreezer Defrost ErrorDisplay error: separation of freezer compartment defrost heater housing part, contact error, disconnection, short circuit, or temperature fuse error Display error: The defrosting does not finish through fresh food compartment. Compartment defrost is heating continuously for more than 70 minutes.After separating MAIN PCB CN70and CN71from PCB. check the resistant value between CN70 brown to CN71 orange. It should be 102 ohms ±7%. (Resistance value is varied by the input power.) Check 0 ohm: heater short.00 ohm: wire/ bimetal open.
F-10-bIce Room Fan ErrorDisplay error during operation of fan motor: feedback signal line contact error, motor wire separation, motor errorVoltage of MAIN PCB CN76 black to CN75 gray should be between 6 V to 12V.
