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.
Samsung rs263tdbp and demo/cool off mode will not  - rs261_demo_animation_250.gifrf221_rf220_rl220_rl225_display_demo_250_1.gif
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.

SOURCE: Samsung frig stopped cooling-

most new fridges have a self defrost mode once or twice a day because the coils ice up if it collects alot of moisture. it shuts the compressor down and turns on a heat coil to defrost (which can take up to a half an hour). usually on a timer that is adjustable.

Check the diverted box in fresh food side. Some of them have an electric flapper that opens to let cold air in to maintain temp in fresh food side. If coils are not frozen up then that is the next thing I would look at. The flap might not be opening up,

If the front display panel reads OF OF it is in the demo mode. To release it from demo mode do the following: Simultaneously press and hold the Energy Saver and the Power Freeze buttons for about 1-2 seconds then release. You should then hear a chime sound. Check to see if the unit is running. If so it could take several hours to become cool enough t use.
If the above does not apply (i.e not in demo mode), unplug the refrigerator then plug it back in and try depressing and holding the same two buttons for 10 seconds before releasing.

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 refrige error code OF OF


OF OF means the fridge is in Demo mode and the compressor is turned off; this mode is used in the store so the unit can be displayed with actually cooling. Press FREEZER and POWER FREEZE simultaneously until the OF OF message disappears to put the unit back into normal home operation.

My TV had the same problem and I have managede to get rid of it. The solution is very simple. This displays mean that your TV is in the " Store Demo" mode and any changes you make will last only for 30 minutes and when the TV is turned off the settings will change back to the normal. Whether you TV is in the "Store Demo" mode can be confirmed by pressing the "Info" button on the remote and you will see that "store demo" appears on the screen. To change this mode to the "home mode" you will have to press the "Volume button" on the TV and when the volume sign appears on the screen then you will have to press the "Menu" button on the TV (not on the remote)and hold it down for about 7to 10 seconds. This changes your TV mode from "store demo" mode to the home mode. Confrim whether the store demo mode has been put off by pressing the "Info" button on the remote to see whether the store demo sign appears on the screen. The store demo is set by sales persons in the shops so that any demonstratation/changes that they make while showing to customers will be temporary as the settings revert back to the original.
