LG REFRIGERATOR SHOWS 1F or IF on Display = ICE MAKER BLOWER FAN or ICE MAKER MOTOR ERROR. What does it mean and how do I fix it? When your LG refrigerator shows the ERROR CODE 1F or IF, this indicates a possible issue with either the ice blower fan, wire harness problem, main control board, other wiring issue, or the ice maker motor. The refrigerator should continue to work properly such as cooling the fridge section and freezing in the freezer but the ice maker will not work and you may have water leaking. Here is how to fix it and what parts to repair or replace…
LG Refrigerator Error Code Er IF & LG Refrigerator Error Code Er 1F
The Er IF Error Indicates The Ice Maker Blower Fan has a Loose Wiring Connection or may be Frozen or the Ice Maker Motor is Faulty.
NOTE: Also check these other parts to be sure there are no other issues causing the error code:
– The Ice Maker Blower Fan May Be Blocked or Frozen and unable to function properly.
– Ice Fan Motor May Be Defective and needs to be Removed and Replaced.
– Wiring on the Fan to or from the Control Board is Damaged, Not Connected, or Loose.
– The Main Control Board has Failed Or the Wiring is Damaged, Not Connected, or Loose.
The LG error code Er 1F may mean the ice maker blower fan motor is not functioning and could be faulty or there may be a wiring issue with the ice maker blower fan motor. The ice maker blower fan is located in the freezer. This fan blows air into the door so the ice cubes stay frozen. Depending on which LG refrigerator model you have, the ICE PLUS button on the display panel makes the Ice Maker Blower Fan run at a higher speed. This function moves more air so the fan will not frost up and become stuck thus showing the error code.
You may see water dripping out of the dispenser or the bottom of the freezer door. This may indicate the ice maker blower fan has become frozen with frost or the fan is faulty and needs to be replaced. If you find the fan to be frozen, all you need to do is defrost the fridge and this will fix the problem and will clear the Er 1F error code.

LG Refrigerator Ice Maker Blower Fan – How To Remove and Replace?
Here are the 2 MAIN parts that may be causing the error code Er 1F in your LG refrigerator:
Check the air vents in the freezer section to be sure they are not blocked, see image below…
NOTE 1: The code showing on the LG refrigerator may show Er 1f, Er IF, Er 1F, or just 1F, IF, or F1. These error codes are all indicating the same thing (ICE MAKER FAN). The true error code for a faulty Ice maker motor or Ice blower fan is “1F” as per the LG refrigerator error code database.
NOTE 2: The 1F error code and the IF error code can be confused for the same error code but each mean different but similar issues. For an LG refrigerator showing the If error code, this indicates that the LG refrigerator is detecting a problem with the LG refrigerator’s ice maker fan which is part of the 1F error code. This may occur when frost or ice buildup occurs around the ice maker fan. You may be able to simply remove the ice buildup around the ice maker fan and this will solve the issue. Defrosting the complete refrigerator may be another possible solution to the IF error code on LG refrigerators.
