what does the error code 5y and ef mean

Hello, this is a fairly common issue on these units. It means there is an air flow issue. There is a small fan motor in the freezer over the evaporator. When this error code pops up it means the air isnt traveling correctly. It normally means that fan motor is bad.

You can remove the back panel inside the freezer and check the fan motor for power. If the fan has 110v, then motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
