The first question I have is the length of spent unplugged. I would keep it unplugged for at least 15 minutes to allow all the capacitors to discharge. I'll keep thinking, just let me know if the above works.
return air ducts from the freezer may be iced up, unplug unit and use a hair dryer to defrost. The ducts will be behind the rear panel, but just let the hot air circulate for a couple of hours to really defrost it good luck
I have a samsung french door that was also displaying 88 8Y and found out that it's an error code for the ice maker, I removed the wire cover, disconnected the ice dispencer connector, and then removed the ice dispencer, made sure nothing was stuck inside, plugged in the connector, pushed the reset button, and then put everything back. Unplugged the unit for about 20 min, and when I plugged it back in everything worked. I can't take the credit for this, a thread at applianceguru.com/forum1/8630.html helped me out on this one.
I would start by getting behind it and removing any cardboard or dividers. With it unplugged from the wall check for any loose wires or breaks in the wiring, some small animal may have chewed a wire into. Next look closely at the compressor most have a way to unplug the compressor - unplug it, set the wires so they do not touch any metal or you. and plug it up into the wall if the lights come on and fans start running you have a bad compressor. Sorry.
before you call for service
try the unplug reset method
sometimes this unit
freaks and that what happens
just unplug it for a few minuts hopefully it should clear up
bar that your could be looking at a new control board
return air ducts are frozen and need to be defrosted. unplug unit and with doors open , introduce warm air from a blowdryer for a couple of hours , the ducts that are frozen are behind the rear panel on the rear wall of the freezer
