SOURCE: refrigerator will not chill after power outage, frost on freezer

Please check other question on this subject, but long story short is that the unit needs to be completly defrosted, your freezer is what cools your fridge and if there is ice build up on the evaporator air cannot flow through to the fridge.

SOURCE: After power outage, our Samsung

If the power outtage was less than 10 minutes unplug the unit for 20 minutes. Then attempt to restart the unit. If you have a display and nothing happens press power cool and power freeze for 8 seconds then use the up arrow to cycle through until you get to the final test and it should restart. If you still have the problem after doing the above, respond without rating the post and I wll help you. RS2556 Service manual is publication number SAM0097.pdf and can be found here:

SOURCE: Power outage while away caused

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Display on control panel no longer displays.


Surge associated with power outage can make disasters in refrigerators. You need a power protector for refrigerators.
Now, what already is damaged, should be repaired by an authorized techician.
For protector, you can do a search; typical return is this one

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.

We just had a power outage and the door flashes 88 -88 with no controls responding


Had the same problem when hurricane Irene took the power out. Contacted Samsumg and they sent a repair man out that told me that this is a common problem and that it would cost $600 to repair my less than 3 year old refrigerator. He said it's the mother board, planning on trying to replace it myself.

The picture of my Samsung DLP tv is getting darker. We have had several power outages over the past few days as a result of the hurricane. Do I need to make an adjustment?


Yes, or it can also be a burned fuse, you can take it to a service center and repair it yourself.
Or maybe the power outage just disconfigured the Tv try resetting it.

The fridge turned off today due to a power outage and now it only shows a green bar on the display and is not cooling!


What kind of refrigerator, and whats the model number? Green bar flashing I'm going to guess a Samsung. If so, then hold down two buttons at the same time on the display, It depends on the model number as to which two, but in most cases its the power freeze and ref buttons. If you can get the brand and model # to me I could describe more for you.

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!
