LGHS2667KE0 - SY EF error code

8 posts in this topic

Frigidaire Gallery-SY EF code error.  I have replaced the main control board after receiving a SY CE error code, and then replaced the evaporator fan after getting a SY EF error code.  However, SY EF code is not going away and fan is not turning on.  I have checked the voltage coming from the control board and getting 12V to the fan.  The freezer coils are freezing up and freezer is getting cold, but refrigerator is not getting cold.  Other parts of the refrigerator appear to be working correctly (lights, water dispenser, etc.).  Thoughts?

Are you getting a voltage at the fan? If so and your fan isn't running, you need a new new fan.

... I have replaced the main control board

... then replaced the evaporator fan after getting a SY EF error ... code is not going away and fan is not turning on.

... I have checked the voltage coming from the control board and getting 12V to the fan.

1) with a new Control Board ?

2) with a new Fan ?

3) measured 12v with the Fan connected ?

YES, bad Fan

NO, bad Control Board

If you stll have your original fan, test it with a 9 v battery.. If it works, it probably is not the fan. Check your molex connector for corrosion

I checked it off a 12v car battery using the brown and red wire. didn't run. these are the two wires I found 12v at on the frig. Should I use different color wires and/or connect multiples of the other wires. The blue and yellow wires must have some purpose.

You hot wire the fan by putting white to negative and BOTH red and yellow to positive.  If you reverse this, you will blow out the internal motor control.  A 9v battery is sufficient for this test.

I am out of town, so I haven't been able to try this. I don't have a white ground wire. Red, yellow, blue, and brown. I used the brown wire as ground earlier. When I checked the connector on the frig I got 12v using the red(+) and brown(-). I just want to be sure, I didn't know it had an internal motor control that would blow if I hooked it up backwards.

Here's a time-saving idea:  While you're out of town, order both the fan motor and PCB that Brother Reg linked you to.  They'll be waiting for you when you get back.  Install both, pop a cold one, problem solved, move on to problems that really matter and enjoy life.
