It is not the circuit board in the door, it is the one in the rear of frig. I had the same problem, and replaced the front board with no results, replace the HV board and fixed the problem..

Never buy the Ice20, what a piece of junk. Maytag has already been out to repair mine 3 times and it isn't even 2 years old yet.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Fisher and Paykel model RF610

The F24 error show that the sensor in the ice maker is out of normal ranges. The usual fix is to replace the sensor in the ice maker.  Also worth checking it to see is the water to the ice maker has frozen up in the value (switch the fridge off for a day). If the error still exists after that you will need to replace the ice maker sensor. You have a 2 year warranty on these parts so the fix should be free.

Our fridge compressor won't run after a power outage, can it be reset?


compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug

My samsung model RF263AEPN is flashing an 88 89 after the power went out


This is taken directly from the Samsung website:French Door: Why Is The Display Blinking 88 88 And Not Responding?Cyber

Drastic power fluctuations such as power outages and surges can cause electronic device to behave abnormally. If the refrigerator display is showing 88 88 (all eights) and is still cooling properly, unplug the refrigerator for 60 seconds and then plug it back in. If the display returns to normal after approximately 2 minutes service is not required. However, if the display does not return to normal service is required.

Temp sensor


Check for broken wires on your ice maker temperature sensor. On my model RF265AABP that was the problem causing display to read 88 88 with one digit blinking.

Our power went out due to the snow storm, and the display panel shows 88 on each side...how do I reset this...will this cause the fridge temp to go up?


From http://www.samsung.com/us/support/supportMain.do

Your refrigerator is equipped with an onboard diagnostic system. If the diagnostic system detects a fault, it will display a specific line segment on you refrigerators LED display. If your refrigerator is displaying an error code, please note the error code, and reset the refrigerator by unplugging the refrigerator for 30 seconds. When the refrigerator is plugged in, it performs a self diagnostic check of the various sensors and functions. If the error code reappears your refrigerator will require service. Please click the "Create Online Service Request" button below this article to initiate the service process. After a power outage the display panel may start blinking "88 88." If you unplug the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in the display will return to normal operation after several hours. The power outage/surge can cause a communication error between the circuit boards in the unit. It can take several hours for these boards to stabilize.

If the display does not reset, go to the Samsung Support link above, enter your model number, and follow the prompts to request a service ticket.

Good luck, and if this helps, please rate my answer!

I had this issue after a power outage with our GE Profile Model GFSF6KKY Dispenser Model. No solution that I could find online helped me so I started trying different button combinations.

Control panel not working Samsung refrigerator model rs2533sw. Not cooling.


I have a samsung refrigertor rs2555sl and my control panel stopped working after I turned the power off to the house (to install a light fixture elsewhere). There was one green light blinking on the refrigerator temp display.

Hold down the "power freeze" and "power cool" buttons at the same time for at least 8 seconds. This is a self diagnostic program. A number should appear on the refrigerator temp display (1-9)...it will hold for 30 seconds and then the panel should function again.

In my case the number that appeared was "3" which can indicate a multitude of things including a short circuit or power outage (which was it was for me).

Hope this helps!
