Re: control panel inactive

See if you accidentally unpluged or damaged any wires under the refer during the move. There are connectors that can sometimes easily pull apart if a dolly hits them.

What makes the problem to set the temperature in the frige

Hello friend, thanks for your inquiry!

Based off what your describing it sounds like an issue within your control panel or thermostat. I would perform a reset on your appliance which you can do by disconnecting power to your refrigerator for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue please inform me I would like to see what additional information I could provide. -Matt

Samsung RFG 297 series... contro panel reads 88 88

This is technical unit an they can be pretty touchy with power outages sometimes. It may be in a display mode. If you havent already try unplugging the unit for a minute or two and plug it back in. This doesnt reset its programming try holding Energy Saver Key + Lighting Key for 8 seconds and let the unit run thru a self diagnstic test and hopefully it will reset. If neither works its going to have the main board replaced.

Freezer not sending cold air to the Frige area.

The interior light in most refrigerators, and the fan in some, is controlled by a door switch. When the door is closed, the switch is depressed and the interior light goes off and the fan resumes normal operation. If the door is misaligned or the switch malfunctions, the refrigerator may become warm as a result of the non-operation of the evaporator fan and the heat generated by the interior light. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to zero when the probes touch the terminals. With the probes still touching the terminals depress the switch, the reading should change back to infinity. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

((If the switch is ok, and it passes the test, simply replace the fan)).

GE Ice dispencer not working properly

for a very informative video on trouble shooting your refrigerator

I had the problem with no water or ice dispenced and the lights dim when dispencer is used and the refrigerator compresser stops after using the dispencer and had to unplug and reset unit. GE DID NOT WARANTY IT. I bought a new motherboard for about $88 and fixed my problem. As the video shows there can be other problems that will cause some of these symptoms but not all at once. My frige was only 2 years old when this happened.
