    I had a power outage at my home and when power came back on my fridge (Samsung RB2044SL) had an error code on LCD screen. Where can I find a listing for Error codes. The fridge and freezer will not stay cold.

unplug the unit for about a minute and plug it back in and it should reset itself and be good to go

SOURCE: samsung ref model RB2044SL freezer works fine

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.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Maytag refrigerator mfi2568aes replaced control board in back and input code and saved. now nothing is running but display is fine


Sometimes the new board will be in defrost mode when you install it, leave it powered up for 30 minutes to see if it begins cooling... Maytag Refrigerator Control Board W10890094
Also be sure the code is entered properly, these will do NOTHING without the right code.

LG GR-B206GTQA Fridge Freezer ER CF Error Code


The fan is almost certainly run by a sensor in the condenser. If it doesn't get hot enough, the fan doesn't run. Sounds like short of gas. Try wiring the fan to the compressor live and see if it runs all the time then.

After a brown out, the front panel shows 88 and 08 (flashing). Nothing happens when i press any of the buttons. The refrigerator seems to still be cooling.


Wow, Grumpit...your solution worked perfectly (Press the top left (Engery Saver) and top right (Alarm) buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds--it will beep and reset the panel.) What a racket both GE and local repair places have going...they both told me I needed to replace the entire contol panel!! GE needs to start telling people this along with unplugging the fridge when you call in and ask about the error code.

My GE refridgerator will not run


If lights are on and nothing is working that usually points to the motherboard. If you would like to do it yourself I can show you what to look for and where. As always unplug before working on anything electrical. Will you please confirm that your model is the PSS26MSRSS so I can be sure to point you in the correct direction? I also want you to remove the panel over compressor area and feel the top of compressor for overheating. Let me know when ready. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Mini refirgerator stopped cooling, interior light


If nothing is running but the light is on you might want to unplug the unit for about a minute. Then plug it in. If it starts up again then do nothing. It just had to be adjusted. If the display shows a er then it could have something wrong with the thermistors. If it shows 2 dashes then let me know and I can try to walk you thru a program to get you backup and running again. If 2 dashes you will have to get to the plug so pull the unit out.

Refrigeraotr is out but freezer still works


doesnt make adiff how you loaded freezer, shouldnt affect fan operation anyway. if you have a meter you can check for proper voltage(110v) to fan wires and if you have power youll need to replace fan, easy enough to do just a few screws and about $50.. part number 5304445861.

FRONT DISPLAY SHOWS (PE0-000)


Usually the owners manual would show the error codes so check there first. As for the compressor running, it "should" be cooling if the compressor is running. But lets go back a little, why was the HV board replaced?
