SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Panel showing 88 88

You can try unplugging , wait a few minutes , and plugging back in . If that doesn't work , then the main control board , located on the back of the refrig ( behind an 8 " X 10 " panel ) , was damaged by the power surge , and needs to be replaced .

SOURCE: Our power went out due

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!

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.

Samsung side by side RFG297AAWP display shows 88 88


Press and hold the energy saver button, and the lighting button at the same time until it beeps and clears, 10 seconds. When it goes back to normal panel do the same thing again which will put the fridge in a running diagnosis mode and see if any parts of the 8's are flashing, if so look on the back of the fridge at the error codes.
