Samsung RM255LASH - flashing error code 98 a8 after power glitch

I have tried resetting it after calling support @ samsung they say its in "DEMO" mode. I need to press arctic select and freezer button together for 8 seconds. BUt nothing happens.
Then they wanted me to reset the unit by plugging and unpluugging unit after 9 mins. THat doesnt work too.

Also the fridge is making too much ice and it is puddled at the bottom and frozen over.

    The unit flashes error code 98 A8 but will not reset by either unplugging and re-plugging the unit or pressing the arctic select and freezer buttons together. A technician has recommended replacing the cpu.

It turns out that it isn't flashing 98 and 88, but rather it makes the 98 because the one segment is blinking. This is segment 25. You can find info on what this and other blinking segments mean on page 25 of this document:

This is a service page for a whirlpool model, but it's exactly the same.

Good luck

The same thing happened to me after a power outage. I pressed the top two buttons (Freezer and Fridge) and held them for about 8 seconds... ding, reset, working! Funny how this isn't mentioned in the user's manual.

Error code samsung refrigerator


That sounds like a power glitch. Try pressing and holding the power freeze and power cool buttons at the same time for about 8 to 13 seconds and see if it clears. If not try unplugging for a few minutes. If it still doesn't clear, you may need to call a repair technician.

How to reset it out of demo mode


If your not getting any response out of your control pane you will have to do the following
The refrigerator may be in Demo mode which disables the compressor to save electricity when the refrigerator is on the showroom floor. To cancel Demo mode, press Freezer and Arctic Select Zone buttons for 8 seconds. You will hear a chime.

How do I get my Samsung fridge model #rs25hs5000bc off demo mode? I tried holding down energy saver and power freezer but doesn't work.


IT is three buttons not two. Cooling Off mode (also called Shop mode), is designed for use by retailers when they display refrigerators on the shop floor. In Cooling Off mode, the refrigerator's fan motor and lights work normally, but the compressors do not run, and the refrigerator and freezer do not get cold. To start Cooling Off mode, press and hold the Energy Saver button, the Freezer button and the Lighting button for 5 seconds during normal operation. The refrigerator chime sounds and O-FF appears on the display. To cancel Cooling Off mode, press and hold the Energy Saver button, the Freezer button and the Lighting button again for 5 seconds, until the chime sounds. Cooling Off mode is only available on refrigerators sold in the U.S. Instructions are on page 20=> HERE

Samsung rs263tdbp and demo/cool off mode will not turn off


from the manuals Page 1. Activating/Deactivating Cooling Off Mode When the refrigerator is in Cooling Off Mode (aka Demo Mode) the display will read "OF OF, O FF, or OFF OFF." Cooling Off Mode prevents the unit from cooling. It is used by retailers to display units without wasting energy.
Note: Models without digital displays will display scrolling lines when the unit is in Cooling Off Mode.

Tip: If your display panel has buttons that have to be pushed in to perform any functions, replace the word "Touch" with "Push" or "Press" in the following steps.
  1. Touch and hold the top two buttons on the left side of the display panel.
  2. Important: You must touch the 2 buttons at the exact same time. Not doing so will result in an unsuccessful attempt to activate/deactivate Cooling Off Mode.

    Notes:
    • As long as the display panel is located on the exterior of the left door of your refrigerator you will use the top two buttons on the left side of the display panel to activate/deactivate Cooling Off Mode.
    • If your display panel is located inside of the unit along the door frame you will need to locate the words "Cooling Off (Hold 3 sec)" printed on the panel. The Power Freeze and Freezer buttons are the two buttons used for Cooling Off mode on these models.
    • Wi-Fi Touchscreen displays on RF4289* and RSG309* are exceptions to this article. Cooling Off Mode is activated/deactivated through the settings menu.
