Customer called shop with a complaint of non responsive and SYCF error code.

 

Went out on first call on this, found burnedspot on main board (pn 242115239).

 

Returned today, put in a new board and plugged it in.  Ice box fan and ice dispenser flap kept pulsing.  User interface did not respond to me.  Eventually the machine got bored and quit trying. 

 

Now it's non responsive and flashing an SY CE error.

 

The tech sheet lists this as "a communication error" with no other info.

 

The burn spot on the board seems to correspond with the ice box fan and the ice system. (It's all right up next to the J6 connector and the solder traces seem to trace back to that connection.

 

The ice maker thermistor is dangling in the ice box and has about  1/2" of bare wire.

 

I am thinking replacing the ice fan and the ice maker would need to happen, and maybe replacing the UI.  But it's not clear to me how I would diagnose the UI.

 

 


What is the simplest, dumbest explanation? Because that's the most probable one.

Ice maker needs to be replaced and the user interface. Your main board probably blew because of that sensor. I've had it happen a couple times. And it appears your new board is having communication issues with the old UI. Nothing to diagnose because the SYCE is telling what's wrong.
I found out the hard way about that sensor on a fridge. Went on one it was unresponsive. Ordered main board and it worked for a month, then went out again. Tech line said that sensor has 120v running it and it is what shorted the board. They also said when ordering the UI to order the touchpad because some of these new ones are not coming with the board/ touchpad assembly now. The touchpad may be just fine though so that's your call.

Yeah I found out about the sensors getting 120 VAC the hard way. That stung.

 

My sense of this customer is that he's going to look at the price tag and walk away. He's pretty disenchanted with his Electrolux experience. 

 

I keep wondering when this company is going to run out of suckers to fleece.

True. I'm tired of their crap myself.
