Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The error SY EF means a System Evaporator Fault.
This usually means there is NOT enough air flow over the sensor, this can mean a faulty sensor, or evaporator fan motor. If you open the freezer and hold the door switch down and can hear the fan running then the thermister (temp sensor) located on the evpaorator coil in the freezer needs to be replaced, if the fan is not running then the evaporator fan needs to be replaced.

Try to clear the error by unplugging the unit and plugging it back in after about 10 minutes sometimes this will reset the board and the unit will go back to working but if you still get the error the above repair will have to be made.
