Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about this error code. The information you have received from Pvalde is correct. I'm sorry you are having this problem. This error code Er IF indicates a problem with the icemaker fan motor but it can also be with the main control board. When the power cord is disconnected for 30 seconds and then reconnected, it resets the board. Sometimes this procedure corrects the problem and sometimes it does, for only a short period of time. Usually in this case, the main board will need to be replaced. First it needs to be determined if the fan motor is running or not. If the motor is still running, the main board, which is located behind the unit, will probably need to be replaced. This could still be a problem with the motor not sending a low voltage signal to the board. If the motor is not running, some voltage checks will need to be made to, determine if the motor has failed or if the board is not sending voltage to the motor. These are some difficult checks to make and the motor can be a difficult repair, which will require a technician. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a technician come out to check it. Here is a link for the website:
