Electrolux Refrigerator Error Codes

Electrolux Refrigerator Error Code Normal – SH

If your Electrolux refrigerator displays the error code “SH,” it indicates a potential issue with the Fresh Food Sensor. This code is specifically designed to alert users when the sensor responsible for monitoring the temperature in the fresh food compartment has encountered a short circuit.

Details of the Error Code SH:

  • What Does “SH” Mean? The “SH” error code stands for “Sensor Shorted.” This occurs when the electrical circuit within the Fresh Food Sensor is disrupted, leading to a malfunction in temperature monitoring.
  • Possible Causes:

    • Wiring Issues: Check for any damaged or frayed wiring connected to the Fresh Food Sensor.
    • Sensor Malfunction: The sensor itself may be faulty or damaged.
    • Electrical Interference: External factors, such as electrical interference, could disrupt the sensor’s functionality.
  • Symptoms:

    • Fluctuating or inaccurate temperature readings in the fresh food compartment.
    • The refrigerator may not maintain the set temperature, leading to potential food spoilage.
  • Troubleshooting Steps:

    1. Inspect Wiring: Examine the wiring connected to the Fresh Food Sensor. Replace any damaged or frayed wires.
    2. Check Sensor: Verify the condition of the Fresh Food Sensor. If damaged, a replacement may be necessary.
