Er If code on Kenmore Elite Er If - out of options
Posted 09 July 2010 - 07:27 PM
So naturally, I tried replacing the fan (LG# 5209JA1044A) behind the grille in the freezer compartment, but the error IF came back. I then tried replacing the main PCB assembly (EBR34917104), and that did not eliminate the code either. In TEST 1 mode by pushing the reset button on the main PCB, the terminal 4 (Red) and 5 (Blue) reads 0.05~0.1V (DC), which should be reading 12~16V. So I believe there is a faulty PCB, but I don't think two PCB will fail in the same manner back to back.
Could it be that the wire to the motor is somehow short circuited and keeps frying the PCB? Aren't there any protection for these kinds of failure? How do I go about replacing the wire harness? By the way, this is not an issue where there is ice build-up. I checked behind the grill and defroster where the ice maker fan is, and it is absolutely clean.
Any suggestion from the expert would be greatly appreciated.
