The water is supposed to drain from the coil area every time the fridge goes through a defrost cycle to get ice off the fins. The water should drain out into an evaporating tray adjacent to the motor/pump unit. Obviously it is not draining, so when the freezer freezes again the remaining water freezes and eventually creates a mini glacier in the fridge which floods every defrost cycle. The culprit is accumulation of years of gunk in the drain tray or drain tube or a little funnel like apparatus that feeds into the evap. tray. The fix is as follows: Shut the fridge off, unplug it and gain acces to the cooling fins/drip tray area. (I found a good video that explains the process sep by step for the kenmore freezer down type. I would link it but dont have a clue how to do that) . Carefully chip away at the ice with a wooden spatula -- not a crow bar. When most of the ice is gone pour hot water to melt what is left and get it flowing down to the evap tray. You may send too much water down there but such is life. Clean up the water that has run all over the kitchen. Dry out the fridge with a good table clothe and put it back together. Your fridge/ freezer will work now, but it will ice up again. Time for part 2 of the fix. Pull the fridge out, remove the back panel, and with the aid of a light follow up from the evap tray and find the little funnel affair. Pull it off and fill the sink with warm soapy water and use a bottle brush to scrub that rubber thingy. It is unreal how much crud gets stuck in there over the years. If I had had access to a new rubber drain piece I would have gladly thrown the old one out skipped the scrubbing. At this point the fridge is as fixed as it is going to get. It is unreal how many fridges are thrown out over this flooding issue and the fix is quite easy as you will see.
when half of the display goes out, it is giving you an error code telling you what is wrong with the fridge.Unplugging it simply resets the computer until the error comes back typically within a few hours.
without knowing what is lit up, it is difficult to help you so I would recommend putting the error code "which bars are lit up" in a comment so we can diagnose further
After replacing the control board did you unplugged the fridge.?There is no resetting button.Unplugging the fridge for 1 hour will reset it.If still the fridge doesn't reset then leave it over night unplugged.
I fixed it. ER FF is "Error Freezer Fan." Once the evaporator fan stops turning for more than 115 seconds, this error message will be displayed. This fridge is poorly designed and is not designed with air gaps or enough air gaps to allow air behind the back panel of the freezer where the fans and condenser coils are located thus causing ice to build up around the fan and it's ability to spin. The evaporator fan helps cirulate the cold air generated by the condenser coils.
The fix is (1) defrost your refrigerator which means you'll loose all your food if you don't have another unit to keep the food in until it's done defrosting or (2) to dismantle the entire freezer by removing all the trays and railing so that you can pull the back panel far enough to get the front end of a hair dryer over the top lip of the panel to melt the ice. My unit had ice build at the top right and left corners behind the panel. I opted for the latter and didn't have to throw any food away.
This is going to be an annual chore if I want to keep this refrigerator. We should all ban together and call for a recall.
The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.
Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).
Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
My Frigidaire also got the dreaded E-F error code and stopped cooling. Technician over the phone told me to unplug it for 5 minutes and then plug it back in to see if the control board would reset itself. Did that with no luck. Unplugged the refrigerator last night while I tranferred my food to a spare fridge in the garage. Plugged the fridge back in this morning (9hrs later) and it works fine with no error codes. It looks like the control board has reset itself but how long it takes...I dont know. 10.. maybe 15 minutes? Well more than 5 at least. Guy over the phone told me that you can buy DRY ICE at a local grocery store and put it some in your freezer and a little bit in the frigdge to keep the food cold for a day. I had a spare fridge but I thought that was a good tip for anyone that needs to buy time for a tech to come repair the fridge. I had just bought $300 in groceries the night before so that tip would have come in handy if I did not have the spare fridge. I have no idea what the EF error was for but it's been 5 hours since I plugged my fridge back in and it's running fine so I'll cross my fingers. Got around to cleaning the fridge and plugging in a surge protector too. Hope this post helps someone out there.
I faced the same problem for Kenmore elite Trio Model # 795.77543600 bottom freezer refrigerator. The issue as pointed out by Medeer on fixya.com, turned out to be the part called component assembly, part number 6615JB2005H. I got this replaced yesterday but for 4 hours I did not notice any cooling... so I thought it did not work.... but then in the morning I notice that the issue has been resolved, the refrigerator is cold and there is no eR dH error message. Thanks to all who shared on this site.
