Kenmore refrigerator all error code

Kenmore elite refrigerator error code er if (er 1f)

This error occurs when there is no signal from the icing fan motor to the main control board for longer than 114 seconds. If you see the code on the display, please, check the fan in the back of the freezer. The fan’s mission is blowing air toward the ice maker.

In some cases, the error can be cleared by unplugging a refrigerator and plugging it back after about 5 minutes. Should the problem come back, it means that the fan is not running. This may be caused by ice building up and blocking the rotation. In this case, general defrosting should work: unplug the fridge for a day or so and let all the ice melt.

This error code reports a defrost heater problem. However, do not be in a hurry to look for a new heater: this may also be a control board issue. If it is not, you should get to the defrost heater. Unplug your fridge and take all bins and baskets out of it. Then remove the front freezer panel using a flat-head screwdriver. Check the defrost heater and evaporator coils. Remove the heater very carefully. Do not apply force to the coils! Replace the heater and run the refrigerator.

This error code stands for ‘communication error’ and occurs due to communication failure between the main control board (on the back panel) and display control board (on the freezer door). This may be due to poor wiring and/or loose connection. Remove the cover, check the main control board and the CON6 connector (see the diagram on the second image below). If there is no wiring problem, check the wire harness n in the upper part of the left-hand door of your fridge. If no problems occur there, check the dispenser and its wire harness connection.

Why it happens: there is no signal from the icing fan motor to the main control box for over 114 seconds.

Locate it: check the freezer fan, which forces air to the ice maker compartment. It is found in the rear section of the refrigerator.

What to do about it: unplug your refrigerator and wait for 5 minutes. Then plug it back in. If the code is still there, the fan is just not running. Most likely, it is iced up. If it is, you have to defrost the fridge. Unplug it for 24 hours and wait until all ice melts. If the defrosting does not work, you may need to replace the fan.

Why it happens: the evaporator fan or main control board is not working.

Locate it: check the fan motor, main control board and wiring harness. Sometimes the problem disappears after a simple power reset. If it reoccurs soon after the procedure, this may be due to a main control board or fan failure. Check these two parts (they are located in the rear part of the refrigerator).  If the fan motor is running and the fan is spinning, replace the board. If the fan and motor are not working, replace the fan.

Parts to look for: a fan motor, wiring harness, and power control board.

Why it happens: this error code indicates a freezer sensor problem, which may result from the sensor failure or disconnection. The latter may occur in the cabinet wiring and/or in the main control board.

Locate it: unplug the refrigerator, check the blue wires at the main control board. Pay attention to connections at Terminals 11 and 12, as shown in the diagram below. If there is no problem, this may be due to a board failure. The procedure may require professional help.

Parts to look for: temperature sensor, power control board and a wiring harness.

What to do about it: if one or more of these parts proves faulty, replace it. This may require a technician’s assistance.
