ABSOLUTELY it could be in DEMO MODE. I would change the Set Up to your own Settings. Some of these NEWER Fridges have Internet, TV, RADIO all built in.

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.

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.

My refrigerator display shows "Of" how do I get it to normal when I reset the temp for the fridge or freezer the display goes back to "Of"


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.....

The temperature display keeps on flashing and will not stop. It is on both the freezer side and the fridge side.


Either the fridge's controller is trying to indicate a failure, or a temporary power failure has reset the fridge and it's demo mode. Demo mode is the mode used in stores where the lights and stuff will work but the motor doesn't run. Exiting demo mode may be as simple as unplugging it again for a few minutes, but you should look in the troubleshooting section of your manual to find out for you specific model.

It might be that your fridge went into something called 'demo mode' that shuts the compressor down so as not to waste electricity on the showroom floor. The freezer and fridge sides both start to warm up, but the temperatures shown on the outside of the door never change, so you don't know you have a problem until you open the fridge or freezer and find you have a melted mess. My Samsung is 7 years old and we run into this problem frequently when our power is on and off, like just recently with hurricane Ike. Per the Samsung website, the cure for 'demo mode' is to unplug the fridge for 1 minute then plug it back in. They also suggested pressing Power Freeze and Freezer Temp together for 8 seconds until you hear a chime to cancel demo mode. Good luck. I really dislike this machine.
