Error codes on Samsung refrigerators typically indicate a problem with the refrigerator's evaporator fan, according to Samsung. The error codes usually appear when the evaporator fan motor has failed or is about to fail. The evaporator fan is responsible for circulating air throughout the fridge, so when it fails, the fridge will not be able to keep food cold. The most common error code on Samsung refrigerators is "OF" or "OF C," which stands for "offline." This error code typically appears when the evaporator fan motor has failed or is about to fail. Other error codes include "CF" or "CF C," which stands for "cooling fan error," and "ER," which stands for "error." These error codes typically indicate a problem with the refrigerator's cooling system.
