Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Unfortunately the EFF error means that the system is not cooling properly due to a failed compressor or a sealed system leak (freon leak). Those units are notorious for failing within a year or two so if it has lasted longer than that you did better than most. In order to repair the unit you will need call a certified company that is licensed by your state to work on sealed systems and handle freon, in most cases it is going to be cheaper for you to just replace the unit than have it repaired, sorry for the bad news but that is the issue.
