GE Fridge Error Codes – What You Need To Know!
Error codes for GE Refrigerators
|ERROR CODE||CONDITION||DIY ADVICE|
|FF||The freezer compartment has lost its normal temperature conditions||This error code is generated once the freezer compartment has lost its normal temperature conditions, and it has been too high for longer than 2 hours. Examine your frozen food for thawing. Verify that your fridge and freezer have their doors shut in a proper way. Check the door rubber gaskets and replace them with new ones if damaged. Once you have returned your fridge to its normal condition, press the System Check button to reset the appliance and wait for some other possible appliance system malfunctions. In case you see the PF code, it looks like the FF code was caused by a power failure. Now, try keeping the fridge and freezer compartments shut for as long as possible to allow your refrigerating appliance to gain necessary thermal conditions in both compartments.|
|PF||The temporary power failure||Verify if the refrigerating appliance power cord is plugged into the electrical mains grid outlet the way it should. Once you see the power cord damaged, replace it with a new one. Look into the freezer and fridge compartments and see if your food hasn’t spoiled. Dispose of the spoiled food if any. Finally, press the System Check button to reset your appliance and see if no other errors are returned.|
|CI||Your appliance has a faulty ice maker||We recommend you to clear the ice mold from the ice cubes. See if the ice mold is filled with water. If not, make sure the water supply to the ice maker is not blocked. In case you turned off the water supply tap, we recommend turning off the ice maker assembly as well. After that, press the System Check button and reset your refrigerating appliance. Look for some other possible system malfunctions. In case the CI code persists, it is the ice maker assembly that needs replacement.|
|dE||Malfunction in the fridge defrost system||The fridge defrost system has not run the required defrost routine for more than 48 hours. Disconnect your refrigerating appliance from the mains network, examine the wiring leading to the fridge defrost system unit, and reconnect any loose wires back in their place. In case the wiring is badly damaged, replace it with a new one. You may also want to test the fridge defrost heater and install a new part instead of a damaged one. However, keep in mind that the refrigerating appliance may operate and skip the required defrost cycle under certain conditions, for example, when the surrounding temperature is below 55 °F. Press the System Check button to reset the fridge once you found everything operational.|
|CC||The thermal conditions in your freezer compartment is higher than needed||The freezer temperature has been above normal for longer than 2 hours. Read your user manual to set the necessary thermal conditions. Verify if the freezer door is shut tight. Once you see the door rubber gaskets damaged, replace them. Now, press the System Check button and clear the error and reset your refrigerating appliance. See if no other possible system malfunctions are revealed.|
