er if (er 1f) error code kenmore refrigerator

er if (er 1f)

The main control board does not receive a signal from the icing fan motor for more than 114 seconds.

Please check the fan at the rear of the freezer if the code appears on the display. The task of the fan is to blow air in the direction of the ice maker. In some cases, the problem can be solved by unplugging the refrigerator for about 5 minutes and then plugging it back in. If the problem reappears, it indicates that the fan is not working. This can be caused by the accumulation of ice, which prevents the rotation. In this situation, general defrosting should work; unplug the fridge for a day or two and let the ice melt completely.

This error code indicates a problem with the defrost heater

However, do not rush to buy a new heater, as there may be a problem with the control board. If this is not the case, immediately check the defrost heater. Remove all containers and baskets from the refrigerator and unplug it. The front panel of the freezer can be removed using a flat-blade screwdriver. Inspect the evaporator and defrost the heater coils. Remove the heater with extreme care. Do not put pressure on the coils! Turn on the refrigerator and replace the heater. Request Service

Error in communication

This may be caused by poor wiring and/or loose connections. Check the main control board and CON6 connector after removing the cover. Check the wiring harness at the top of the left door of the refrigerator to make sure there are no wiring problems. Check the dispenser and its wiring harness connections if there are no problems.

SH error code kenmore refrigerator


Shorted freezer temperature sensor

  1. Disconnect the freezer temperature sensor from the wiring harness and unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Use a multimeter to determine the resistance of the sensor. If the sensor temperature is 0 degrees, the instrument should show 84,925 ohms, 32,566 ohms and 11,304 ohms, respectively (room temperature). If the resistance is less than 10 ohms, replace the sensor.
  3. Reconnect the temperature sensor and measure the resistance across the freezer temperature sensor wires that are connected to the electronic control board (gray/white wires on connector J4A) to see if the meter shows the correct resistance across the sensor. Measure the resistance on the gray and white wires after disconnecting the J4A connector from the control board.
  4. The resistance reading on the meter should match the temperature sensor reading. If the sensor resistance is correctly measured by the meter through the cables, then the electronic control board probably needs to be replaced because the sensor resistance is not detected accurately. If the meter registers resistance of less than 10 ohms on the sensor wires, find and fix the problem with the sensor wiring.

SY EF error code kenmore refrigerator


Failure of the evaporator fan circuit

With the refrigerator unplugged, check the evaporator fan wiring harness connection in the freezer compartment. If the plug of the wiring harness is loose, reconnect it. Check that the wiring harness in the freezer is properly connected by checking the evaporator fan wiring connections to the electronic control board (brown/white, blue/white and yellow/white wires on J4A and red/white wires on J4B). If the electrical connections are good, the evaporator fan must be replaced. If the problem persists, the electronic control board should be replaced. Request Service

Kathryn Bragg

Superior Appliance Service is reliable. My range was recently repaired. Wow! The technician came on time. He’s accurate and gave a fair estimate. This is a team I’ll remain with and recommend.

Jimmy Smith

Satisfied overall. After a few days with a leaking washing machine, I booked a next-day appointment with them. A technician arrived the following day and did his best. He also performed some maintenance on my dryer and didn’t charge me for it, plus provided tips for maintaining them in excellent shape. I’d utilize them again since their charges appeared industry-standard.

Derrick French

Andrew from Superior Appliances came out within three hours of our call. The engineer was courteous and explained everything before starting. Bravo!

Jack Nunez

Fair prices, money-saving incentives, and qualified personnel are offered. To sum it up, I’m delighted with Superior Appliance Service and would suggest them. Well-informed and customer-focused. They care about everyone they’ve helped.

Calvin Summers

My front load washer gasket needed replacing, but Scott suggested a much better and less expensive solution. So pleased. My advice is only given by people who value their customers. Excellent appliance repair specialist.

Jimmy Rivera

If they can repair my damaged Bosch washer, they can do anything. My washer broke for more than a month, and other firms told me to purchase a new one. I had no doubt theycould fix any appliance until they did.

Maria Vargas

Excellent service! On time, the professional explained everything. He spent many hours replacing my faulty washer and dryer, yet the service charge was still extremely fair. Unexpected? I’d hire Superior Appliance Service again and confidently share positive feedback about them

Whitney Livingston

During the installation, the technician suggested that I put on shoe covers. He was extremely professional and knew what he was doing. He also advised me to throw out the first batch of ice produced by the refurbished ice maker (which I already knew, but the mention was so professional). The company communicates quickly and expertly. Everything was an A+. I’m a difficult customer, but working with Superior Appliances made it simple to keep my gas appliance in good working order.

Theresa Welch

A repairman told me my washing machine’s motor was dead and I shouldn’t try to fix it. Great advice was offered on buying a second. Because I’m so appreciative, I’ve suggested two friends. I’ll use them for another repair. They’re amazing!

Michelle Joyner

After repairing the washing machine, the technician further checked his work. Yes, he remained for the whole wash cycle. He was extremely professional and quick to my first inquiry, getting as much information as possible before coming to our home to fix our new fridge. The specialist came on schedule, disguised the issue and solved it promptly.

Donald Teresa

Best appliance repair. They mended my oven and helped me with other equipment. Affordable and competent staff. Outstanding service!

Matthew Reid

Called this company to do some work on my dishwasher in my house they came in a timely fashion. They tried there best to repair my dishwasher but they couldn’t so I had to end up buying a new one and they refunded me my money. Great customer service I would highly recommend this company.
