We have an 9 year old LG LFX25960ST and we have Er CO on the display screen. Will it still keep the fridge cool enough for a day and the freezer frozen?

I have a 2 year old LG lfxs24623s with french doors. The center mullion shorted out. Apparently the wires chafed enough to touch and arc and burn through. I thought it would be an easy fix, replace the mullion, which I did, but it is clearly not working and condensation builds up. Any ideas?

LG should have replaced our refrigerator 4 years ago. So many many things went wrong with it the first year and now, at 5 years old the compressor was bad, replaced it. Still not cold. Making sound like a plane is taking off, Codes this time ER and FF.
I hate this LG refrigerator and will never buy another.

I have an LG LFX31945ST/02 french door that have cooling issues.
The motherboard, compressor and dryer has been replaced.
Now the unit cools down but up to 48F only (freezer).
During self test mode all evaporator fans work and the unit has been plugged since 24 hrs.
Looked at the coils and no frost.
There are no error codes on the front panel and no flash codes on the motherboard.
Before new motherboard and compressor, unit won’t cool at all.

I have an LG bottom freezer, model# LFXS30766S02. I have an error code “e” and “rF”.
I replaced the fans in the freezer section, still have the same error code after I turned the refrigerator off for 3 hours.
I have to reset every 3 hours in order for the error code to go away.
The ice and water dispenser works during the reset but do not work when the error code is on.
I then change out the main PCB board in the back of the refrigerator where the power cord is.
I still have the same error code but now the ice and water dispenser do not work at all.
Even during the reset period or during the error code period.

Tuan Ly,
If you have replaced the freezer fans and the main PCB board on your LG bottom freezer refrigerator, then you may have a simple wiring harness or communication error.
Recheck all wiring harness on the boards, fans and near the display panel.

My LG LXFC24726S is having the same issue as Penny, displaying the E rF code. It was making a noise that sounded like a fan hitting its housing and when I turned off the ice maker it stopped.
I am comfortable repairing about anything but is there a schematic somewhere of this refrigerator and where the fan is that you are referring to?
And where can I buy the part?
I will NEVER buy an LG again.
My former fridge (GE Profile) lasted 24 years, this one is one month out of warranty and already broken.
Thanks so much for your help!

Cheryl,
Here is the manual for your LG Refrigerator LXFC24726S.
You may need to scroll down to the PDF Manual and click it. Once you have the PDF file open, scroll down the manual to the troubleshooting section.
There you will find a few things LG recommends to try but the info is limited.

The LG refrigerator Ef rF error code on the refrigerator’s display indicates an abnormality in the Refrigerator fan motor or possibly a bad main board.

The fan is the most likely issue as most people that have the ef rf code change out the fan motor and it fixes the LG refrigerator.

LG Refrigerator fans can be found here.
LG Refrigerator Main Control Board can be found here.

I have a LG bottom freezer model number lfx25975st /02. On the display panel an E comes on the screen. If I unplug it for 30 seconds and plug it back in the display lights up like it should but a minute later it goes back to a display showing just E. In the meantime, no water or ice. What is the problem?

Mike springer,
Is the error you see on your LG Bottom Freezer showing an “E” or “Er”.
LG does not list only “E” error code in the database.
Have you tried resetting the refrigerator by pressing and holding the buttons on the display?
Is the LG fridge brand new?

Now that I have read the issues that people have with their LG I will never buy one again – 3 years is all I have had my LG – my control panel lights don’t work and now this error message that I can not read because half of the lights on the digital display do not light – I know it is an E but can not make out what the other is so do not not if it is the “if” scenario or a number – 3 years is not long enough for a refrigerator to last.

My LG refrigerator has the code E rF. Do I have to replace the fan motor? Or what? The ice and water is not working.

Penny,
The rF error code on your LG refrigerator’s display means an abnormal refrigerator fan motor.
Check to be sure the fan is properly connected and getting power.
If so and it still does not work and the error code comes back, then yes, replace the fan motor.

How do I know which is what is wrong? This makes me ill. I bought this very expensive refrigerator (french doors, oversize, stainless steel) to replace one I thought was going out three years ago. I kept the old one as a backup in our laundry room. The one in laundry room is still going, this one keeps getting this error code. I tried turning it off overnight, it worked fine for about two hours after I turned the switch back on, but it’s back. Any help is appreciated, I am not a repair person at all but willing to learn!

Leann,
LG refrigerator Error Code Er 1F
The IF error code indicates that the refrigerator has detected a problem with the refrigerator’s ice maker fan.
This can sometimes occur when frost or ice buildup occurs around the ice maker fan.
Note: For french door refrigerators, please check the gasket along side the door.
Frost buildup can occur if the doors on the unit are not aligned properly.
For more information on door alignment and proper refrigerator leveling, refer to LG Refrigerator Leveling Instructions.

I have the same model refrig . French door and so -on , I also had the ” I-F” code , I looked in the you tube vids , { the videos gave a little help } but what I did , was , { in your case , if you are not able to move the unit away from wall } I moved my refrigerator away from wall , took the lower back panel off { it is held on with , 6 Philips head screws , the ice maker inlet tube runs through the corner of the same panel , so take care not to get it pinched as you slide the back panel away from its place on the unit , } when I had the panel off , I had a big bunch of dust around the coils of the cooling coils , mine were the color brown it was so covered , I took vacuum , with flex hose , and a soft bristle brush too remove the dust . { the actual color of the coils are black , uhhhh ! } I do clean out from under the whole unit , floor area , so I was astonished as to how much more actual dust made its way too the coils area … but to the point , I unplugged the refrig , cleaned the coils , reassembled back panel , pluged unit back in , { took about 20 too 30 minutes } I did not get a I-F code right off , it did the next day , I unplugged the refrig , plugged back in , and since no problems .. makes ice , and no codes this is day 5 since I cleaned the coils still doing good … hope this helps { if you haven`t already paid to have the fan replaced …}

Your frozen up on your evap coil behind the bottom back panel of your freezer. Get a hair dryer and try to defrost the coil or leave unplugged for a day. Best to remove the back panel of freezer and apply hair dryer. Short term fix for defrost cycle not working.

We have a double door LG fridge and freezer – Serial No 406TRCNOK843. The computer shows at Freezer dH and at the Fridge E. What should we do? We bought the refrigerator a year ago.

Lizell Strauss,
An dH error code on the LG refrigerator’s display means that the unit spent more than 1 hour trying to defrost. During defrost, the refrigerator will increase the temperature at the evaporator to a preset temperature depending on the model. If this temperature is not reached within 1 hour, the DH error code will display. You may have a defrost issue with the fridge. Have you given the fridge time to clear the error on its own? You may need to give it some time and it will go away since it is happening during defrost mode. Try unplugging the fridge for 10 minutes and see if that clears the errors.
