Question about Samsung Refrigerators

Open Question

Samsung Refrigerator RS267TD displaying OF, is there any way to fix this; if so, how?

The front display is reading OF instead of the freezer/fridge temps. Both the fridge and freezer are coming to room temperature. We looked through the manual with no luck and even searched the internet. We unplugged the unit for 10 mins and plugged it back in hoping that it would reset itself but still see the "OF" on display.

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: Samsung RS2556 - Refrigerator side is not cooling - Freezer is fine

Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2. Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

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.

SOURCE: Samsung RS2533SW freezer not cooling problem

I was having the same problem but with the refrigerator side. I know your problem was with the freezer side but I hope this works in your situation too. I was also told to unplug the fridge for 20 minutes and that did not do a thing to reset the circuit board in my situation. Unplug the refrigerator first. In the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is a metal panel. Remove that panel and off to the right side of it should be a white looking plastic box. Unscrew that box from the fridge and open it up to get to the circuit board. Remove ALL harnesses from the circuit board and capacitor. After doing so plug them all back in and reassemble everything back together and plug in the fridge. This should reset the board and allow it to function correctly. This is advice I got from someone else and everything as of today is cooling down like it should. I hope this helps everyone else out. Best of luck.

Also since the evaporator was frozen solid at the bottom on the refrigerator side I had to leave the power off until it thawed and then had to soak up all the water that collected at the bottom of it.

SOURCE: LG LRFD25850ST gives ER CO code on door

Good call Cooltech! My new LG "open box" deal from Best Buy must have been delivered once before. I hauled it home, plugged it in and Er CO was on the display. The doors must have been removed to get through tight spaces, exposing the bundle of wires and connectors under the left hinge cover. One wire had been repaired with a crimp lug, wire cut too short, and the crimp was no good. I soldered the connection and added 2" of wire so it wouldn't be stressed. Works!

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.

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."

How do I fix Error message 5E on samsung refrigerator RS267TD which popped up after a power surge? I have already unplugged it for 5 minutes


I must admit I know nothing about modern computerised fridges, though I do know a bit about computers.

If you don't have your computerised appliances surge protected - modern tv and radio, hi-fi, fridge and so forth are in reality either computers or contain computers - one or more of them is likely to be damaged by a power surge or voltage spike.
Sometimes even with surge protection they can be damaged.

Bear in mind if damage has occurred it is possible the error message means little or nothing.

I suggest you read the instruction manual and then contact the manufacturer's customer service for advice and then perhaps ask a local repairer the same questions.

I just had the same problem with my Samsung. OF means it is in demo mode. On my fridge I had to press "Energy Service" key and "Power Freeze" key simultaneously for at least 3 seconds to bring the fridge out of demo mode. Hope this helps.....

What does code 0F mean? Freezer and Frig both quit working, can you help?


Sounds like it is in display mode. It will go into display mode by pressing the lighting and freezer buttons for 3 seconds. Hold both down for another 3-5 seconds and it will start cooling.

Of error code on display screen. how do I fix it?


If your control panel displays "OF" instead of the temperature, your 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 electricity when the refrigerator is on the showroom floor.

Note: Cooling Off mode is also called Demo mode or Exhibition mode.

Depending on your refrigerator, to remove your refrigerator from Cooling Off mode:

  • Either press and hold the Energy Saver and Power Freeze buttons for 3 seconds
  • Or press and hold the Power Freeze and Freezer buttons for 3 seconds.

The temperature display re-appears after the unit is out of Cooling Off mode.
