How do I fix the SY EF code on my Frigidaire refrigerator?

The SY EF code on a Frigidaire refrigerator indicates a problem with the evaporator fan circuit. To fix this issue:
  • Start by unplugging the refrigerator from the power source.
  • Open the refrigerator door and locate the evaporator fan, typically found behind the back panel of the freezer compartment.
  • Check for any ice or debris blocking the fan blades or obstructing their movement.
Thawing any ice buildup with a hairdryer or allowing it to melt naturally can help restore normal operation. Ensure that the fan motor is running smoothly and not making any unusual noises. If the fan appears damaged or defective, it may need to be replaced.
Suppose these troubleshooting steps do not resolve the SY EF code. In that case, contacting Frigidaire customer support or scheduling a service visit from a qualified technician for further assistance is recommended.
