Based on your weird display issues I'd lean toward the control board problem. At least that can be "one" of a couple problems...

SOURCE: Freezer keeps beeping and switching off

Next time this happens unplug it for about 10 minutes. When you plug it back up you should be able to turn it back on normally. This resets the board, much like restarting your computer. If the problem happens again, you will probably have to replace the board. You also want to make sure you have a good ground on the circuit and a steady power supply without too much fluctuation. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: new GE profile refrigerator bottom

Ok, I had the same problem with this fridge. It is in "demo" mode. You have to push in and hold the Energy Save and Adjust Freezer buttons at the same time. Hold these in until the display starts flashing. You should hear the compressor kick on. I did this, and it was fixed and started cooling in a matter of seconds.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

My samsung control on the freezer is displaying OF OFseems ice maker is off I pushed the power freeze by accident and can't get back to regular display


0F 0F on a Samsung refrigerator display indicates that your unit is in DEMO Mode. In DEMO mode, the lights work, but the refrigerator/freezer, fans, etc. will not operate (this mode is for display/retail purposes in appliance stores). Unfortunately, Samsung does not include any info re: DEMO mode in their user manuals.

To exit DEMO mode and return to operating mode, you will need to push 2 display buttons simultaneously for ~ 3 seconds (you'll hear a small chime, then the display window will display the freezer/fridge temps and will then be out of the 0F 0F DEMO mode). The 2 display buttons that you have to press simultaneously will depend on the model of Samsung refrigerator that you have.

I have a Samsung RF18HFENBSR model (french door, bottom freezer, display at top center of fridge compartment). For this model, you press the Power Freeze & Freezer buttons at the same time to enter/exit DEMO mode).

You might try googling Samsung XXXXXXXXXX Demo Mode, where XXXXXXXXX is your model number, and you may find the display button combo for your model. If not, then you can probably get the combination from Samsung support to return your unit to normal operating mode. Your appliance store may also have that information.

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

Code freezer demo


French Door: Why Does The Control Panel Display "OF OF" Instead Of The Temperature? If the control panel displays "OF OF" instead of the temperature, the refrigerator is in "Cooling Off" mode. In Cooling Off mode, the refrigerator appears to be running normally, but the compressor is off so the unit does not cool. Cooling Off mode is used by retailers to save energy when the refrigerator is on the showroom floor.
Note: Cooling Off mode is also called Demo mode or Exhibition mode.

Disable Cooling Off mode by performing the following:
  • Left Door: Simultaneously press and hold the top two buttons on the left side of the display panel until you hear a distinctively different chime sound when the display changes. This will either be a combination of "Energy Saver" and "Freezer", or "Energy Saver" and "Power Freeze/Freezer."

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.

GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR MOTHER BOARD PROBLEMS i REPLACED THE MOTHERBOARD AND IT STILL DOSEN'T KEEP THE PROPER TEMPERATURE. It varies from 36 to 45 degrees.


Go into the diagnostic mode on your touch display .
1) . Press any button on the display 1 time except the temp adjust buttons.
2) Press the temp up and down on both the freezer AND refrig (all 4 at the same time)
3) when 0's show , release the buttons and press any button except for the temp adjust buttons .
4) NOW , fress the temp adjust buttons until the freezer side displays 0 and the refrig side displays 7 . 0 and 7 is for the thermistors test .
5) After 0 and 7 display , press any button again except temp adjust , and this will start the thermistor check .
6) You will have 7 thermistor tests , indicated on the refrig display , starting at 1 , then 2 then .......
7) The feezer display will tell for the corresponding thermistor , indicated by the refrig display , if the thermistor p = pass , s = short , b = bad (replace board)

After determining if or which thermistor is bad , then adjust the display to 1 on freezer display and 6 on the refrig display . This ends the testing procedure and resets the refrig back to normal .

Cannot get the fridge to start cooling


If the panel temperature reads 0 F 0 F it is in the "DEMO" mode. This is normal if you purchase a floor model. To bring it back to normal mode press ENERGY SAVER & ADJUST FREEZER together for 3 to 5 seconds until it beeps. Then unplug the referidgerator for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it bck in. That will reset the stupid computer and get it back to normal operation.

Samsung french door fridge not working?


I had the same problem ("OF" on display and not working) and just found a fix and it worked (on SAMSUNG site).It was correctly stated that fridge is in "demo" mode. You need to push and hold POWER FREEZE and ENERGY SAVER buttons (not "Fridge button and the Power Cool buttons" as it was suggested above).
