Defrosting Sensor ErrorErdSShort or Disconnection of Defrosting Sensor
Icing Sensor ErrorErISShort or Disconnection of Icing Sensor
Poor DefrostingErdHEven though it is passed 1 hour since then Defrosting , if Defrosting sensor is not over 8°C, it is causedTemperature Fuse Disconnection, Heater disconnection, DRAIN Jam, Poor Relay for Heater
Abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for Ice MakingErIFIt is caused when feedback signal isn’t over 115 seconds during BLDC FAN motor operatingPoor BLDC Motor connection, DRIVE IC, and TR Tx/Rx between icemaker and main board.
Abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for FreezerErFFIt is caused when feedback signal isn’t over 115 seconds during BLDC FAN motor operatingPoor BLDC Motor connection, DRIVE IC, and TR Tx/Rx between icemaker and main board.
Abnormality of BLDC FAN Motor for Mechanic RoomErCFIt is caused when feedback signal isn ’ t over 115 seconds during BLDC FAN motor operatingPoor BLDC Motor connection, DRIVE IC, and TR Tx/Rx between icemaker and main board.
Communication ErrorErCOCommunication Error between Micom of Main PCB and Display MicomPoor Communication connection,Poor TR of Transmitter and Receiver Tx/Rx between icemaker and main board.
