You are welcome, Have you tried unplugging the refrigerator for 5 minutes to see if it will reset? Also is your refrigerator cold in the freezer as normal cold is? If not can you hear anything operating?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

The refrigerator or freezer are not cold and I can not hear anything. I have unplugged the refrigerator and will wait 5 minutes to see what happens. Thanks, David

Just plugged the refrigerator back up, could hear sound for short time and then shut off, E F are still on the control settings.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX looking in the manual.
Expert:  Barry G. replied 6 years ago.
I do not have a manual that includes the code. I don't want to start guessing. I will opt out and let another tech who has them try. Have a nice Sunday David.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX for more information.

Expert:  Barry G. replied 6 years ago.
The compressor is not operating either? Nothing?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

When you plug it up the compressor and fan runs for a minute or less and then shuts off. No, nothing, fan nor compressor, just shows E F in the codes.
