When you see this error code, check the J4-connector located on the main control board of the refrigerator for damage. If there is none, then check the J4-4, J4-5 and J4-6 connectors found on the ice maker board.

It is also important to check the 15 pin-line connector located on the refrigerator’s main control board. If all these connectors are working fine and connections are good, then check the main control board.

This is quite a technical diagnostic work so contact a qualified refrigerator technician to verify which part is faulty or defective. Then, fix or replace them.
