Electrolux Refrigerator Error Codes

Electrolux Refrigerator Error Code E5

Error Code E5 signifies that the 0 Degree Compartment Sensor is damaged or experiencing a malfunction. This sensor is responsible for monitoring and regulating the temperature in the compartment designed for items that require a colder environment, such as meats, seafood, or other perishables.

  1. Sensor Damage: The sensor itself may be physically damaged, leading to inaccurate temperature readings and an inability to maintain the desired conditions.
  2. Faulty Wiring: Issues with the wiring connecting the sensor to the refrigerator’s control panel can also trigger Error Code E5. Damaged or loose wiring may disrupt the communication between the sensor and the appliance’s main system.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Inspect the Sensor: Examine the 0 Degree Compartment Sensor for any visible signs of damage, such as cracks or breaks. If damage is detected, replacement may be necessary.
  2. Check Wiring Connections: Ensure that the wiring connecting the sensor is securely attached and free from any wear or tear. Reconnect any loose wires and assess if the error persists.
  3. Power Cycle the Refrigerator: Turn off the refrigerator, wait for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. This can sometimes reset the system and clear temporary errors.
