Error Codes On The Freezer Display 

SH error code

When your freezer is displaying an SH error code on the temperature display screen, it means that the freezer temperature sensor has shorted out. To troubleshoot this problem, you will need to start by disconnecting your refrigerator from its power source and locating the freezer temperature sensor. Once you have found the sensor, carefully remove the wire harness and disconnect it.

Using a multimeter, check the sensor to ensure it has continuity. If you find it faulty, then it will need to be replaced in order to clear the code and keep your freezer running optimally.

OP error code

When your freezer is displaying an OP error code on the temperature display screen, it means your freezer door is open. If it continues to display after the door has been closed, it indicates an issue with the temperature sensor in your freezer. 

To troubleshoot this error, start by ensuring your freezer door is closed correctly. Then unplug your fridge and locate your temperature sensor for your freezer. Visually inspect the sensor and check the wiring between the electronic control board and the sensor for any damage or faults. If you find anything, it will need to be repaired or replaced. Once the faults have been fixed, turn your fridge back on and wait to see that the OP error code has gone.

DF error code

This error code indicates there is an issue with the defrost circuit. It occurs when the defrost control board is not able to activate the defrost cycle. 

To troubleshoot for this error, you will need to inspect a few components. Start off by checking the defrost control board, and the wiring harness that connects the defrost control board to the timer for any damage or loose wiring. If they are all clear, check the main control board. You want to ensure each component is working correctly and has no damage. You should use a multimeter to check for continuity. If you find any of these components defective, you will need to replace them.

SY or EF error code

The error codes SY or EF indicate there is an issue with the evaporator fan. Most commonly, it will be a possible circuit failure. 

To troubleshoot this issue, you will need to start by disconnecting your refrigerator from its power source and then locating the evaporator fan. Once you have found the fan, visually inspect the wire harness connections for any damage or loose wires. If there is no obvious reason for the error, then test the wiring for continuity using a multimeter. Any faulty wiring should be replaced. 

SY, CE, SY, OR CF error codes 

When one of these error codes is displayed, it indicates that the electronic control board cannot communicate effectively with the user interface.

To troubleshoot this issue, start by disconnecting your fridge from its power source. Next, locate the wire harness that connects the user interface with the electronic control board and visually inspect the wiring for any damage. If you see any faults or damage, you will need to replace the wiring. If the wiring is in good condition, you can check it with a multimeter to confirm if it needs to be replaced.
