The Er IF error code indicates that the main control board detects that the ice compartment cooling fan is not working. This will cause a lack of cooling in the ice compartment and will normally result in no ice production. This is something that a service technician will usually need to correct. If you are advanced in technical skills, you may be able to correct this problem yourself. It will require the removal of the inside back panel of the freezer compartment. This is not an easy task. I recommend that you review the procedure for this task that is shown in the image below. Make sure that you are able to safely perform the tasks described before proceeding with this repair.
Unplug the refrigerator
to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Once you access the ice fan, you may find excessive frost in this area and on the evaporator that could be causing your cooling problem and fan problem. If you defrost this area, you may find that you do not need to replace parts. If you find no excessive frost or the Er IF error code resumes after removing any frost then you will likely need to replace the ice fan (part 5209JA1044A). You can order this part from the
You indicated that you checked the fan. If this is not the fan that you checked then you will need to check the ice compartment fan.
The ice maker may begin producing ice after resolving the problem with the ice compartment fan. This will not likely resolve a problem with the ice and water dispenser. A control board in the dispenser controls the components in this area. I provided the procedures for accessing the dispenser control board in the second image below. If you unplug the refrigerator, you can use these procedures to access and check the wiring on the dispenser components. If you are advanced in technical skills, you can use the wiring diagram shown in the first image to check the circuits.
