Frigidaire Refrigerator Error Codes – Fault Codes







If your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an error code, we can help. New style Frigidaire refrigerators have built in diagnostic systems. If your refrigerator finds, sees, or detects a fault or error in the system, it will show an error or fault code. The error code will display where the usual numbers are on the display screen. When an error code is displayed, your Frigidaire refrigerator is telling you a specific fault. If the error or fault is not fixable by you, it will require a repair technician.

Frigidaire Refrigerator Error CodesFrigidaire Refrigerator Error Codes

There are many different model numbers of Frigidaire refrigerators (side-by-side and french doors) with digital displays so when you see an error code write down what is flashing or displaying. Don’t pull the power from the fridge if it shows an error code. If you pull the power plug it will erase the fault code.

The display shows “Sb” or “5b” while in Sabbath mode.
SB Sabbath Mode
The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the fridge and its controls in accordance with observance of the Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community. Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding “∨” on freezer temp and “∧” on refrigerator temp for five seconds.

In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.

When troubleshooting error codes, unplug the refrigerator and use caution.

Frigidaire refrigerator Error code H1 means the refrigerator thinks that the freezer and refrigerator temperatures are too warm.

Reply

DIY Project Help Tips 14 DIY Project Help Tips January 20, 2017 at 10:18 pm

Nathan,
FYI: Its error code SY EF and not 5Y EF.
Error Code SY EF is the Evaporator Fan Fault.
This usually means there is NOT enough airflow over the sensor, this can mean a faulty sensor, or evaporator fan motor.

Access the evaporator assembly cover in the rear of the freezer section. In convertible units that can function either as refrigerators or freezers, and is located toward the bottom of the unit on the inner back wall if necessary, remove the two lower glass shelves and the crisper compartments.

The Frigidaire Gallery with error code SY EF guide is here.
It is for a side by side but will show you where the fan and circuit board are located.

Amy Davis,
You may have a faulty control panel board on your Frigidaire refrigerator.
You can check the wiring to it to make sure it is secure.

If only the WATER illuminates on the Frigidaire refrigerator display panel, it means the display board is getting power but may have other issues.
Troubleshoot the issue further and you may find that you need a new display panel board.

DIY Project Help Tips 30 DIY Project Help Tips October 3, 2016 at 9:13 pm

Gary krech,
If you have found moisture and corrosion on the Display board on your Frigidaire Refrigerator, that means the water line above it is loose and dripping water down onto the control board and the wiring.
First, find the cause of the leak and fix it.
After the leak is fixed, clean the area to remove all moisture and any rust or corrosion.
Then, replace the board that the water dripped on and your Frigidaire refrigerator should be as good as new.
You may need new wiring harnesses if the water damaged them also.
Let us know what you find or if you need help fixing the leak or finding the correct part number.

DIY Project Help Tips 32 DIY Project Help Tips September 28, 2016 at 10:20 pm

Joe,
If the Fridgidaire refrigerator is Flashing 4 and you have replaced the Damper and the refrigerator is still flashing 4:
First, BE SURE THE DAMPER IS BEING SUPPLIED POWER.
Check with a meter to make sure it is getting the correct voltage/power.
Check the wiring harnesses from the board to the damper.
Be sure they are not loose or damaged.

If the Damper gets power, works properly, and all wiring is secure and undamaged, the service manual says to:
Ensure that unit is well sealed to prevent excessive infiltration of moisture.
Review unit leveling, door alignment and door gasket seal.
Look for evidence of poor seal between the door and the cabinet.
If unit is cooling, there will be excessive moisture present within the unit and around the perimeter of the gasket.
If unit is not cooling, place a flashlight inside the unit to detect areas where the door gasket is not sealing well.
If necessary, level the cabinet, align door, adjust or replace gasket to ensure good seal.

Ted Provenza,
Frigidaire Refrigerator Error Code OF OF = The freezer off setting has been turned ON.
Here is what is in the Frigidaire Refrigerator manual…

To turn the freezer off, set the control to 10° and push the up arrow. “OF” will appear in the display. With the control set to off, the freezer light will still operate, but neither the compressor or the defrost cycle will. There is a 13 minute compressor off time delay built into the control.

To turn the control on push the down arrow. 10° will appear in the display. If the freezer is to be operated at a temperature below 10°, push the down arrow until the desired temperature is indicated on the control. The control is designed to fail safe. If the control fails the compressor runs continuously with a 30 minute defrost cycle every 12 hours.

5y EF code on Frigidaire refrigerator = The tech manual says to replace the evap fan or freezer fan first.
The evap fan is the most likely issue when you have the error 5y EF.
Sometimes it is just the wiring harness that is damaged or is not secure, so check the wiring harnesses from the evap fan to the control board.
If replacing the evap fan does not clear the error code 5y EF, then the tech sheet says to replace the control board if a new evap fan did not clear the error.

Your Frigidaire Professional refrigerator is in SABBATH MODE if SB or 5B appears on the display.

Sabbath Mode
The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the refrigerator and its controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community.

Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding “∨” on freezer temp and “∧” on refrigerator temp for five seconds. The display shows “Sb” while in Sabbath mode.
(PRESS BOTH BUTTONS AT SAME TIME NOT SEPARATELY)

In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, for example due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound intermittently for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.

WHY would ANY refrigerator company put the control board UNDER the refrigerator?? We bought a brand new frigidaire refrigerator and then later a tree fell on the power line, leaving the refrigerator without electricity for around 14 hours. Condensation went downwards, impacting the control board. This would NOT have happened if the control board were on top of it or accessible through a panel on the back or the sides. How can it be that after so many years of making these products the refrigerators are not far more intelligently engineered?

Thanks for responding. The reason I replaced the power board was because the frig was turning on and off 40 + times a day and everything indicated that the power board was failing. As soon as I put the new board in and I powered up the unit the display went to 2 and then EF. I opened up the freezer and checked the voltage at the evaporator fan and it read 0. I did cal the business that I bought the board from and they said the new board seemed to be faulty and they are sending me a new one. The frig would not cool with the new board.

IC is not an error code. It is a setting of some kind. If you push “Cube” twice, it brings up this display and has 3 various settings, represented by small dashes on the right. I am trying to figure out what this setting is for. I am hoping it is the rate at which the ice maker makes ice, because mine was unable to keep up and we don’t use that much ice. Mine was on the first dash and I turned it up to 3 and am hoping for increased output.

Frigidaire freezer display shows CE error = a communication error between the user interface and electronic module.

First, check the wire connectors between the user interface and electronic module. Something may be disconnected, damaged, or loose.
If wires check good…

Replace the user interface.
Replaced electronic module.
Check the wiring once again.

When I run a service test on my frigidaire fridge I get at “Er” error code 58. Currently my ice maker is not working. Any idea what is happening or where the problem is?

DIY Project Help Tips 78 DIY Project Help Tips June 20, 2016 at 10:44 pm

Brad Mceachnie,
You ran the service test because your ice maker stopped working?
ER = ERROR.
58 = The ice maker switch may have issues. Lift on ice maker bail arm to deactivate switch (if applicable)
You may need to inspect the ice maker to be sure all wire harnesses are connected and the switch is working properly.

Elena,
If your Frigidaire refrigerator displays the ICE ER, this is telling you there is an error within the ice maker system.
We would suggest first unplugging the refrigerator for 5 minutes to see if that MAY clear the error.
If not then troubleshooting will have to be done as the ICE ER code only tells you there is an issue within the ice maker system, may be an electrical connection issue, mechanical fault, etc.
Is the fridge making ice?

The error code flashing H1 on your Frigidaire Refrigerator means the refrigerator believes that the freezer and refrigerator temperatures are warm.
The temperatures are probably warm because your refrigerator is brand new.
Try and unplug the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Plug it back in and you should be able to clear the error code.
Also, try putting the temperatures for both freezer and refrigerator to as COLD as possible for 24 hours to be sure there is not a true fault in the fridge.
If it still has an error, let us know and we can further assist.

Actually the culprit was a big block of ice caused by too much water pressure heading into the ice maker (and the splash ice building up over the years). Whatever it did freaked out the board and tripped the error code. A fix of the water tube and turning the water pressure down did the trick. Thanks for the obvious solution to the problem.

I have a Frigidaire Model # FFSC2323LE9 side by side counter depth refrigerator/freezer that is approximately 2 years old. Yesterday I received the error code SY EF and lost both sides of the unit as they both were not working while this error code was present. We took all of the food out and put them in other freezers/refrigerators, however, by the time we did that (approximately 1 hour) the temperature in the refrigerator part read 58 degrees. I pulled out the refrigerator upon your suggestion to recycle the board with a “power cycle” ,so to speak, and the refrigerator’s error codes disappeared upon power up and now both sides appear to be functioning perfectly 24 hours later. My question is: Will this continue or should I have a tech come out anyway to ensure it is not something more serious? I would hate to move everything back into my refrigerator/freezer only to have the same error code pop up next week. Is what I did a permanent fix in your opinion or is it simply a temporary fix of a problem that will be reoccurring? Any help and advice would be appreciated greatly!!!

My fridge is blinking 4 on the fridge side. It says that error code is the air damper. The freezer isn’t blinking at all. We developed a leak inside the freezer and we thought it was the ice maker so we stopped using it but it is still leaking. I’m assuming it is the water hose or something to do with the water. It started flashing the 4 yesterday and this morning when I get up the items in the freezer were thawing out. Would the air damper have something to do with that as well?

Frigidaire Refrigerator Flashing #4 happens when power is applied to the fridge and the control board goes through it’s cycles and didn’t detect a damper connection.
The damper controls the air flow from the freezer into the refrigerator.

It was very difficult to find this so simple explanation but for these new refrigerators.
When you browse the internet you’ll always find that you should “press both arrows at the same time” (which is not my case).
Of course, it solved my problem and saved me money (I should have requested a technician to solve it and, probably, “some parts” (i.e. main board) would have been “needed to be replaced!”).

Update: The cooling for the Refrigerator and freezer are Not working.

I have a side by side Frigidaire refrigerator with model # LGHB2867PF0. It is giving me a error code of SY CF on the interface board. The interface board seems to be operating normal It will allow me to scroll through the menu and make various selections. I scrolled through the menu and restored the factory defaults. This temporarily cleared the error code but after several seconds the error code returned. I attempted to reset the refrigerator by unplugging and re-plugging the unit back in. It briefly read normal before the SY CF error code returned. The Refrigerator appears to be cooling for now. I read on another site that this was possibly the control board. Two questions : Will the unit continue to cool while I order and receive parts? Do you agree with the diagnosis of control board?

Frigidaire FGUS2642LF0 with refrigerator display code “OP”. The refrigerator side not as cool as usual, everything good on the freezer side and the fan on top of the evaporator is working properly. I changed the thermistor (part number 240597203) which is located on the back inside wall of the refrigerator side between first and second shelf from the top. I also checked evaporator on the freezer side and discovered it was not frozen, but had minimum frost ice build up which I cleared. There is an round opening on the left inside wall on the refrigerator side (if I am looking at the fridge with the door open) that blows cold air to the refrigerator near/above the vegetable drawers. There is also cold air blowing form the freezer to the fridge from the top left wall of the refrigerator (although I believe it is blowing less cold air than normal. The digital display reads “0” for the freezer and “OP” or sometimes -39*F, but mostly stays on “OP”. The fridge has been like this for a few days now; thermistor was changed yesterday with no avail.

Tony,
If you replaced the fan after getting the 5Y EF error code on your Frigidaire refrigerator, the official repair guide says to replace the control board. If your refrigerator is running fine despite the error code, try unplugging the wire harness that goes to the display panel to see if that may reset the display board. Unplug the fridge before you do this. If you continue to have the issue, you can replace the control board as a last resort.

The official repair guide says this: Check the wiring between the evaporator fan and control board. Check for 12 VDC to fan between the red and brown wires. Check for variant voltage (depending on high or low speed) between yellow and brown. If correct then replace the evaporator fan. If error code still exist, replace control board.

Sy ef code. How would I know if it’s just the fan or control board that isn’t working without the proper tools? Could I start with replacing the fan?

Ronnie,
Yes the evaporator fan is most likely but…
Frigidaire error code SY EF means an Evaporator fan circuit failure
Check the wiring between the evaporator fan and the control board. Check for 12 VDC to the fan between the red and brown wires. Check for variant voltage between yellow and brown wires. If VDC is correct then replace evaporator fan. If the error code still comes back then replace the control board.

James,
Is your Frigidaire refrigerator and freezer working properly or is the freezer OFF but the fridge section is ON?
To turn the control on push the down arrow. 10° will appear in the display. If the freezer is to be operated at a temperature below 10°, push the down arrow until the desired temperature is indicated on the control.

both displays actually say ‘OF’ then there is a small ‘F’ afterwards…. so it looks like ‘OFf’

Dwayne Edwards,
Here is what we found for the OF error code….
The freezer off setting has been turned ON…. Here is what is in the manual…

To turn the freezer off, set the control to 10° and push the up arrow. “OF” will appear in the display. With the control set to off, the freezer light will still operate, but neither the compressor or the defrost cycle will. There is a 13 minute compressor off time delay built into the control.
To turn the control on push the down arrow. 10° will appear in the display. If the freezer is to be operated at a temperature below 10°, push the down arrow until the desired temperature is indicated on the control. The control is designed to fail safe. If the control fails the compressor runs continuously with a 30 minute defrost cycle every 12 hours.

Brandy,
Is the IC error code on your Frigidaire on the freezer side of the display? This would mean you have an issue with the ice maker. Can you try resetting it by either turning off the ice maker, or unplugging the fridge for 10 minutes. Can you give us the model number of your fridge?

Sometimes my new Frigidaire gallery refrigerator displays ERROR CODE IC and no cubes come out. I’ve had the unit about one month. I slide my finger and touch crushed then water then cubed and sometimes it works and cubed ice cubes out and IC code goes away. Can you help?

Shelly Donald,
IC error means ICE MAKER ERROR on Frigidaire. Turn the ice maker OFF and back ON. If that does not reset, then unplug fridge for 10 minutes. If that does not work… Remove the ice maker, check for problems, and reinstall. Many times it is just an error or loose connection that needs to be reset.

DIY Project Help Tips 174 DIY Project Help Tips November 30, 2015 at 11:57 pm

Tess,
Are you sure the error is IC? The only Frigidaire refrigerator error code we find in our database for IC is a power outage but that does not sound correct for your specific issue. Have you tried unplugging the refrigerator to reset? Have you made sure the wire harness is connected properly to the ice maker? If the ice maker makes crushed ice but not cubed ice, it may be possible there is an issue with the ice maker itself. Have you removed the ice maker and inspected it for damage and to be sure it is installed correctly? There could also be a board issue which is causing the dispenser to not operate properly. What exactly happens if you try to dispense cubed ice? Does the dispenser make a sound, clicking? Does the motor run? Is the IC error code always displayed or only when you try and dispense cubed ice?

Yes it is IC. Yes have removed the ice maker and all looks well. When trying to dispense cubed ice – press the cubed button and code IC appears, no sound or noise of any kind. Press crushed ice button and crushed ice is dispensed no issue. The refrigerator is a French Door model with the ice maker on top, freezer on the bottom. Have not unplugged the refrigerator.

Tess,
Try unplugging the fridge for 5 or 10 minutes and see if that clears the error. It most likely will not clear the error code if the ice maker has a bad component. If the ice maker does not make a sound when you try and dispense ice, you may have an issue with the microswitch or motor, actuator. Have you tested the components in the ice maker and dispenser to be sure they are in working order? A part needs to be replaced before the error code will clear.

I have a Kenmore French door bottom freezer. The SY CF is displaying in the front. Lights are out and it’s starting to warm up. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with a sensor I saw in the ice bin. Need to figure out how to fix it.

SY CF Error Code is a communication failure when the fridge is powered up = Check the wiring that goes from the interface to the control board. Check to be sure connections are not loose or damaged.

I have a Kenmore fridge. I just replaced the main board for a defrost problem, but now its flashing EF for evaporator fan, except that the evaporator fan is running, could the thermistor in the refrigerator section be causing this error?

Reply

DIY Project Help Tips 188 DIY Project Help Tips September 25, 2015 at 6:25 pm

Demetrio Green,
The thermistor checks the fridge temp and relays the temperature to the main computer control board. This board will regulate the power to the compressor & evap fan. If the thermistor is bad, then all this does not happen and the fridge will not cool. The compressor will not run or may run too often. Test the thermistor with a multimeter. If the thermistor has no continuity then it needs to be replaced.

Frigidaire refrigerator – I have OF on my freezer (O) and refrigerator (F) number panel when I press the “OFF” button. May stand for “OFF”? I have a flashing 4 on my fridge side display with temp not as cold as needed. That is why I’m here.

DIY Project Help Tips 193 DIY Project Help Tips February 3, 2016 at 1:11 am

Cuivre,
Is the error code OF actually dF by chance? Can you reset the display panel by holding 2 of the buttons for 8 seconds? Try that and see if it resets.
The Flashing 4 happens when power is applied to the refrigerator and the control board goes through the cycles but did not detect a damper connection. Possibly the air damper is faulty. Here is a video for Frigidaire Refrigerator Air Damper Control Replacement. Let us know if the error code is correct and what the model number of your refrigerator is.

I have the Error Code ‘OF” on my Frigidaire side by side JSI-26. What is this error and how do I fix it?

195 tony February 2, 2016 at 1:50 pm

I got the error code to go away. I unplugged the fridge and waited a few seconds, then plugged it back in. Everything is working fine now. As a side note to the evaporator fan, when you open the freezer door, the fan shuts off so you have to push the little button that turns off the lights and lets the fan come back on.

Also, I still believe the old fan was bad, I tried putting 12vdc to the wires and it did not spin. So unless there needs to be another signal from the control board to the other 2 wires to tell the fan to turn on, this is a bad fan.

Thanks!
