Hello,

This is a evaporator fan motor error code.

Do you hear a fan running in the freezer section?

Also, is the fresh food section not cooling?

Fresh food section is coolling. Upon replugging frig into electrcial, fan was running. Then stopped when code reappeared.

Any oother suggestions?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
Ok good, check the fan for voltage. If power is present when the code is on the front the fan is bad. If no power is present the control would be bad.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Unable to check voltage. Beyond my capabilities
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
I would suspect the fan motor it's common. I would make the test or hire someone to test it before you ordered the parts.

Let me know
