  1. That’s probably the sound of the fan hitting the ice. Sometimes you’ll also hear a “clicking” sound from the top of the unit, which is the switch/solenoid trying to start the jammed fan.

  2. This has happened to me several times, The first time it occurred I called LG who advised that the Freezer was no longer under warranty and they don’t make those fans anymore so I’d need to buy new freezer. Mmm, instead I pulled the various components out and found that the freezer fan was frozen over. I poured some hot water on it and it was fixed. It recurs every year or so but rather than pull the various parts out and melt the ice with hot water you can force very hot air down the narrow slit at the back of the freezer compartment with a hair dryer to melt the ice (turn the Freezer off first). Better than buying a new freezer!

  3. Not only am I getting the Er FF code but there is major excessive noise coming from it. I read some info about unplugging it for at least 20 minutes and it will usually reset, but only reset for about an hour. As for re excessive noise, I had researched that it could be the motor fans in the compressor needing lube and I had also researched that the freezer fan could either be frozen over or defective. Any advice? The noise is driving me crazy and I am afraid of the whole thing finally breaking down and ruining a lot of food.

  4. FF error appeared a few months ago before , turned off fridge for one day , turned back on . Fridge back to order for a couple months before FF appeared . Tried again but not much luck this time .Turned off again and turned back on, FF message disappeared for a few hours only this time , then came back again . Fridge is cold . Is it defective freezer fan ? No frost build up , doors are leveled , gasket looked ok . Pls help . Thanks

  5. Good day! Please assist. My LG Inverter Linear is displaying error CODE. Light not switching on inside and its not getting cold. What could be wrong?

  6. Trying to fix lg lfx31925 st with ER FF. Already replaced fan motor and fan. Gaskets are good. Error code has returned after motor and fan replacement. Must be something else. Fan tries to run but fails.
