The Er If error code does indicate that you have a problem with the fan for the ice compartment. This link of a previous answer provides more advanced troubleshooting and repair information for this failure: There display on my Kenmore Elite Bottom freezer reads ER 1F. Why and how do I fix it? The Ice maker will not work either.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

It appears that you are indicating that you have a warm refrigerator as well as the problem with the ice compartment fan. Make sure that you do not have any of the incoming air vents blocked in the refrigerator. Make sure that the interior lights are turning off in the refrigerator when the door is closed. Check for ice or frost on the interior back wall of the freezer. This could indicate that you have an automatic defrost system problem. If you need more help with a cooling problem in the refrigerator, reply with additional details regarding that problem.

The icemaker is actually working but the error still appears. A tech said it is the electric controller is not putting off enough power to run the fan and wants to replace for $300. checked the lights and the outside of the vents. There is nothing in the fridge blocking the vents, but when I manually push the door buttons in i do not feel any strong air flow from any of the vents. The only fan that puts off any real air is the icemaker fan that is creating the error message. Freezer is still cold 0-10 but fridge is 60 when set to 34.

Since the ice fan is apparently working then the problem is likely a failed main PCB control board. The PCB board received a feedback signal from the fan to sense whether it is working. There is a possibility that a PCB control board issue is also causing your refrigerator temperature problem. A defrost system failure could be allowing excessive frost and ice to block air flow to the refrigerator. The technician should have pulled the cover on the evaporator to check that area as shown in the link that I provided in my first response. This is a tedious process but likely necessary in this case before replacing a control board. The model number that you submitted above is 795.78506802. Our parts system has a model 795.78506801 and 795.78506803. I recommend that you recheck that model number. If it is 795.78506802 then I am curious to know the part number that the technician will use for the PCB control board. (Continued)

I recommend that you reply with the PCB control board part number and recheck that model number. Update the model number if necessary. It is likely that the PCB board will need to be replaced unless there is ice build-up on the evaporator that is interfering with the ice fan blades. Let me know if you see excessive frost on the inside back wall of the freezer if you can check that area.

I had the same problem looking for the parts but have checked the model # and confirmed that it is .802. The tech is on the way now and hopefully will have a little better luck getting the right part number. I will send the part number when I have it. Thanks for your response. I feel pretty confident with most easy repairs but do not want to risk removing or installing electical or computer parts.

Technician said it is control board as well due to a clicking noise when the fan was turning on and off. No model number on website. Part number on the control board is EBR41956422 ($96), but the lady on the parts line had EBR41956430 ($250). I ordered the part that matched the one that is installed. hopefully it is the right one. Tech said replacing board was rather easy as long as you plug the wires in the correct spaces. Can you please send me the wiring diagram for the control board. If it is just plugging in the wires I think I can handle it without waiting for another technician and missing more work to have the repair done. Thank you very much for your assistance so far. Too bad it will be next Thursday before the part arrives. Expedited was 3 times as much for 2 days.

To replace the control board, unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover panel as shown in the image below (sorry about the poor quality of this image). You can take a digital picture to document the location of the wires before you remove the existing control board. Remove the wires and replace the control board. Reconnect the wires and reassemble the refrigerator. If you need more help, reply with additional details.
