Frigidaire Refrigerator Error Codes Explained

Image

When your Frigidaire refrigerator displays a specific error code, it means that the built-in diagnostics system has identified a problem that will need to be repaired before your fridge will work properly again.

When you see an error code, don’t be tempted to just turn your fridge off and on to remove the error code. If you do this, it can reset the diagnostics system, but the underlying problem will not be addressed, which can lead to bigger problems in the future.

In this article, we will run through the main error codes that get displayed the most frequently and tell you what you need to do to remove them.

Error code OP on the freezer display 

If the OP error code is displayed on the freezer temperature display screen, this means your freezer door is open. If it’s being displayed but the door is closed, this indicates a problem with the temperature sensor in your freezer. 

To solve the problem, unplug your fridge, locate the freezer temperature sensor, and then check the wiring between the sensor and the electronic control board. If there is a problem with the wiring, it will need to be repaired. Once repaired, turn your fridge back on and check if the OP error code has gone.

Error code SH on the freezer display

If the SH error code is shown on the freezer temperature display screen, this means that the freezer temperature sensor has shorted out. To fix this problem, you will need to unplug your refrigerator and locate the freezer temperature sensor. Once you find the sensor, disconnect it by removing the wire harnesses. 

You’ll then need to check the sensor with a multimeter to ensure it has continuity. If it doesn’t have continuity, it will need to be replaced. If you don’t have a multimeter to test the sensor, replace it with a new one or you can try and reattach the old one and see if that works. 

Error code OP on refrigerator display

If the OP error code is showing up on your refrigerator temperature display screen, this indicates the fridge door is open. If it’s being displayed but the door is closed, this indicates a problem with your fridge’s temperature sensor. 

To fix the underlying cause of this error code, turn the power off to your fridge and then locate the refrigerator temperature sensor. Once located, inspect the wiring between the sensor and the electronic control board. If there is a fault with the wiring, it will need to be repaired before the OP error code will disappear. 

Error code SH on refrigerator display

If the SH error code is displayed on your refrigerator temperature display screen, this means the refrigerator temperature sensor has shorted out. To repair or replace the sensor, unplug your refrigerator and locate the refrigerator temperature sensor. 

Once located, disconnect the wire harnesses from it. You’ll then need to check the sensor with a multimeter to ensure it has continuity. If it doesn’t have continuity, it will need to be replaced. If you don’t have a multimeter to test the sensor, you can either replace the sensor or re-connect the old one and see if this solves the problem.

Error codes SY or EF on refrigerator display

The error codes SY or EF indicate there is a problem with your evaporator fan—specifically, a possible circuit failure. To solve this problem, you will need to turn your refrigerator off and then locate the evaporator fan. 

Once you locate the fan, you need to find the wire harness connector and check to see if there is any obvious damage to the wiring. If there isn’t any obvious damage, the wiring will need to be checked for continuity with a multimeter and if defective the wiring will need to be replaced.

Error codes SY, CE, SY, or CF on refrigerator display

These error codes indicate the electronic control board cannot communicate with the user interface. To solve this problem, turn the fridge off, locate the wire harness that connects the user interface with the electronic control board, and then check the wiring for any signs of damage. If damaged, replace the wiring. If the wiring isn’t damaged you can check it with a multimeter and if defective replace the wiring. 

Error codes dF on refrigerator display

This error code means there is a problem with the defrost circuit. When the defrost control board cannot activate a defrost cycle, this error code will appear. To get your fridge working again, inspect the defrost control board, the wiring harness that connects the defrost control board to the timer, and the main control board to check if each component is working correctly. You will need to use a multimeter to carry out these tests. If any of those components is defective you will need to replace them.
