Is it really EC f ??

This is not a listed code... maybe a typo ??

The GE fridge codes below may seem to be error codes but are normal:

tC: If the temperature display shows a tC (could look like an EC, an upside down F with a C), this is not an error code, it is the Turbo Cool (tC) setting.

tF: If the temperature display shows a tF (Could look like an EF, an upside down F with an F), this is not an error code, it is the Turbo Freeze (tF) setting.

Let me know how you get on, and please get back to me if you have any other questions or concerns and I will try help you more.

It may take more than one exchange to get a fix, so please work with me, you are my eyes and ears here
