Modern refrigerators have digital displays which convey error messages when parts fail or something is simply not right. Older fridges may not have digital displays and instead use a series of LEDs to signal that a component isn't working correctly. Diagnose your code below.
E0 or F0 — Power Loss or Open Door
Issue: The fridge either lost power recently, or is alerting you to an open door. Verify the door is closed and see if the error code disappears.
E1 or F1 — Refrigerator Temperature Sensor Fault
Issue: The fridge's temperature sensor may be faulty, or there may be a problem with the wiring. Power down your refrigerator by turning off the circuit breaker or unplugging the appliance. Wait one minute, and then restore power.
E2 or F2 — Freezer Sensor Fault or Evaporator Fan Error
Issue: The evaporator fan may not be working properly and causing incorrect temperature readings. Inspect the fan, and defrost the fan if necessary.
E3 or F3 — Defrost Sensor Fault or Condenser Fan Error
Issue: The compartment temperature in my fridge is incorrect. Inspect the condenser fan, and defrost if there is ice buildup on the fan.
E4 or F4 — Fridge Defrost Sensor Fault
Issue: The compartment temperature in my fridge is incorrect, and may be related to the defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.
E5 or F5 — Freezer Defrost Sensor Fault or Ice Maker Error
Issue: The compartment temperature in my freezer is incorrect. This could be related to the ice maker motor, water supply, or other related components.
E6 or F6 — Communication Error
Issue: The display or controls on your appliance are not operating correctly. This is likely related to a fault in the main control board and display board.
E7 or F7 — Environmental Temperature Sensor Fault
Issue: A number of causes affecting the temperature in your appliance could be happening if you see this error code displayed. Check for an issue with the fridge temperature control board, door, door sensor, or door seal.
E8 or F8 — Refrigerator System Error
Issue: A number of causes affecting the temperature in your appliance could be happening if you see this error code displayed. This is likely related to the compressor, refrigerant levels, or other cooling components.
E9 or F9 — Freezer high temperature alarm
Issue: The freezer door may have been left open which has resulted in the food in freezer defrosting. The error could also be caused by a door sensor fault or wiring issue.
PO — Power Outage or Power On Delay
Issue: Your fridge lost power. The code will clear once power is restored.
PE — Power Error
Issue: The power supply or wiring is faulty. Check the power cord and outlet for cuts, tears, and signs of overheating.
PC — Pantry Drawer Temperature Sensor Error
Issue: There may be a sensor malfunction or wiring problem that controls your drawer temperature. If you locate this sensor, you can test with a multimeter and replace if it's out of specification.
HRS — High Refrigerator Temperature Alarm
Issue: Your fridge temperature is too high. Check for cooling related issues.
LRS — Low Refrigerator Temperature Alarm
Issue: Your fridge temperature is too low and may cause freezing. Adjust and increase temperature setting.
SY or CE — Communication Error Between User Interface and Main Control Board
Issue: Communications are lost between the computer and controller. Inspect wiring and replace user interface. If this didn't fix, replace the main control board.
LC — Leak Sensor Error
Issue: You may have a water leak or sensor malfunction.
rd — Refrigerator Defrost Heater Error
Issue: There's likely an issue with your defrost heater circuit. Inspect your defrost heater for cracks or bubbling, or if it's frozen over.
DF — Defrost Failure
Issue: Your defrost system isn't working and may be the cause of the defrost timer, heater, or thermostat.
