All 8's in the display indicates the first stage of diagnostics. In other words your refrigerator is reverting back to test mode. If this occurs again after disconnecting the power from the refrigerator then reconnecting it, the main board will need to be replaced. The control board is located behind a panel on the rear of the refrigerator cabinet.

Top ice maker in Samsung RFG298AAPN does not make ice. No water cycles into icemaker. Icemaker has been reset, nothing after 2 days. Should I replace the icemaker or the water valve.


On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

Error code 8888


I have a Samsung RF265AABP model. I had the same problem, with the right 8 on refrigerator temperature flashing (top bar only on 7 segment display). The set buttons would not change the display either. The refrigerator and freezer both were about the right temperature (41F and -3F).

The problem was a broken temperature sensor wire on the ice maker. The sensor assembly often gets snagged on the ice tray or scoop or something and falls down, making it more likely to snag, and prevents the ice maker from cycling when frozen.

I fabricated a metal bracket to hold the temperature sensor assembly in place, and used a small tie wrap to hold the wire to the bracket, up and out of the way after soldering the broken wire of course.
If you have a volt meter you can do some diagnostics. Remove the cover from the back of the refrigerator to access the control board. Measure the voltages on the power supply, marked +12V and +5V
(yel and red, blk common). If the display reads 88 88 then the power supply is probably fine. Measure the voltages on the sensor connector CN30 at the bottom of the main control board (larger one). The gry wire on the left is common, and you should read approximately the following on the other wires starting on the left:
WHT 2.63 may depend on Pantry temp setting fresh or cold
BLU 3.59 R-DEF sensor refrigerator defrost I assume
WHT 2.55 R sensor, refrigerator temperature I assume
ORG 4.06 F-Def sensor, freezer defrost I assume
RED 3.54 F sensor freezer temperature, may depend on whether ice is frozen or still water in ice maker.
When the ice maker wire was broken, the readings on ORG and RED were 4.30 and 4.05 volts so I assume high readings above 4 volts might indicate a sensor open condition.

Temp sensor


Check for broken wires on your ice maker temperature sensor. On my model RF265AABP that was the problem causing display to read 88 88 with one digit blinking.

We cannot change the temperature of the freezer. Everything,even the water to the ice machine is so frozen (8*) that we cannot get ice. How do we change the temperature


I am not sure what model you have, but on my RF265AABP there are two buttons and digital displays at the top of the refrigerator, visible when the doors are open. One sets freezer temperature, the other refrigerator temperature. On my model if they read 88 88 with a blinking digit, it indicates a broken wire to a temperature sensor, usually the ice maker sensor since it tends to get snagged and damaged easily.

Not making ice


Check the ice maker temperature sensor. Mine (model RF265AABP) falls out easily and sometimes the wires break, causing the digital readout to read 88 88 and flash.
