It is telling you the temperature is out of range. Put a thermometer in it and it should be below 40F 4.5C and above 32F 0C.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator error code

Had the same problem + a weird noise, which turned out to be ice build up on the blower fan. Unplugged overnight and then opened the lower back panel. There is a small fan that blows over some small coils at the bottom of the box. There is also a drip pan that should be "full" of water. I sponged out the drip pan, put the panel back on and then plugged back in. Works great.

SOURCE: samsung model rs2577sl. fridge side not working

5 reasons for fridge and/or freezer getting warm: 1- the evaporator coils are icing up and won?t let air circulate. 2- the evaporator fan is not working to circulate air. 3- there is no refrigerant in the system. 4- no power to fridge or compressor. 5- the condenser coils have no air circulation check under the fridge behind the vent. if it is too dusty or the fan isn?t working, it is not getting enough airflow to cool down. replace fan and/or vacuum out the dust. if there is no power to the fridge, the light will be off. if the compressor is not running, there is a defrost timer that cuts the power temporarily to the compressor to melt ice on the coils. it?s located under the fridge behind the bottom vent. If the timer is off and the compressor is not going, the compressor or the main board is bad and needs replacing. there is also a temperature sensor on the evaporator coils that tells the defrost coil to turn on and when to turn off. if the defrost timer is on but the coil is not heating up, replace the sensor. if it still won?t heat up, it?s the timer or the coil. the easiest way to tell if there is no refrigerant- the freezer wall is warm and the compressor is loud. if there is no refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace the fridge. if you feel no air coming from the freezer vent, the fan needs replacing. If you feel air moving in the freezer but not the fridge, the channel from freezer to fridge is blocked. if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes: 1. low refrigerant 2. no fan 3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals 4. the condensate drain tube is clogged if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s). no air, no fan. Replace if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional. defrost solutions: unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore model 795 77563600 refrig side

This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

My Samsung RS261M is not producing much ice.. water is working just fine?????


Either the harvest temperature thermistor is bad or the inlet water valve is plugged or malfunctioning. More than likely, it is the inlet water valve assembly.

Refrigerator malfunction


samsung units have duel cooling. that means there is a evaporator in the freezer and the fresh food section. it is possible that the temp sensor in the refrigerator section could be bad. and they have been known to have defrost problems there to. the samsung is a complicated unit and its hard to describe how to repair since there is a lot of electronics that control everything. the best thing I could say is to unplug the refrigerator for a few minuets. sometimes this will reset everything and start the unit back to the factory settings. if that does not work I would call for service. hope it helped you some

RT50 control panel not responding


It still sounds like the child lock is on since that prevents accidental setting changes on the refrigerator's control panel.The following will NOT work if the child lock function is activated: Freezer Temp Button Fridge Temp Button Power Freeze Button Power Cool Button Ice Type Button Water Button Ice maker Water OR it may be in Cooling Off/Demo Mode. Cooling Off/Demo Mode is a feature used by retailers to display the refrigerator without running the compressor. If your unit is not cooling, and the bars are constantly scrolling up and down the temperature, check your manual for reset advice

What does OF on the display mean?


If you get the message OF on your Samsung refrigerator here is how to correct it. What OF means is your freezer and refrigerator has or is going to stop and warm up. To correct it push the Light+Freezer buttons for 3 seconds. It will reset to the last temp settings and everything should go back to normal.

I have a Samsung RS261 fridge whit a blinking light. None of the button selections are working. What does it mean when it's blinking?


It is out of synch. Try unplugging the refrigerator or turn off its circuit breaker for 10 minutes or so to see if it resets itself.

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