Question about Samsung Refrigerators

1 Answer

Samsung rfg293hars refrigerator ice maker filter alarm won't reset after pushing and holding the "fridge" and "power cool" buttons simultaneously for three seconds.

I just changed the ice maker's water filter. Per the manual, I tried to reset the alarms multiple times to reset the red indicator to blue and disable the occasional audio alarm. Neither the visual or audio alert are reset. I unplugged the unit for 10 seconds and tried again with the same unsuccessful result. Are there any other troubleshooting steps I can try?

    After playing with the controls for a while, it's apparent none of the settings can be changed either. I unplugged the fridge for 10 minutes and plugged it in again. No change. It seems to be functional at the current settings, but the control panel won't accept any input.

Reading on door OF


Teresa, The fridge is in a retailers demo mode and here is what you do to reset it to normal operation:
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."
  • At the top of the door frame: Simultaneously press and hold the "Power Freeze" and "Freezer" buttons until you hear a distinctively different chime sound and the temperatures for the fridge and freezer are both displayed.
  • Note: If the temperature is displayed, but then "OF OF" reappears a few seconds later, Cooling Off mode was not disabled. Repeat the actions above, and be sure to press and hold the buttons at the exact same time until the distinctive chime sound is heard and both temperatures are displayed.

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

Samsung RS2555SW fridge. I replaced ice maker now how do I reset it ?


How long has it been since you replaced it? Most of the time it will reset itself once it has been plugged in and has a chance to cool down to proper temp. You can also manually "reset" it if the I/M has a test button on it as most Samsungs do. Find the test button, usually on the side or bottom of the front. You may have to find a way to push and hold the door switch while hitting this button to be sure it's powered. Push and hold the test button, and check for proper operation (like the unit rotates the rakes or twists the tray, fills, stops,etc.). If any of these fail, you may have another issue, but give it time to be sure.

I have a Samsung RF268ABRS Unit all food in bottom freezer thawed. Unit is running and ref is cool. I notice that the fan dosent seem to blow. Closed freezer up and its cold, but no air moving. How do...


I had a similar problem. my samsung freezer would only cool to 20 degrees, which also resulted in the freezer ice maker not functioning. (fridge door ice maker still worked) If you hold the power freeze and power cool buttons down together for 8 seconds it will a diagnostic. found the answers on http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=8206.0 , as too what the codes meant. Mine was throwing a freezer fan code error. ordered one online $30 and replaced it. seems to be working. TIP -The fan is located behing the rear panel in the freezer. I had two fans. The regular looking one is the freezer fan, the squirrel cage fan feeds the fridge ice maker. Also the new fan motors don't come with blades, just pull the blades off the old one and put it on the new motor. Don't push it on too far, make sure there is enough clearance so it spins freely.

My fridge did the same thing. I was told to:

The refrigerator icemaker does not make ice.


you have to hold in the ice type and the childlock button for about 6 seconds and that will take the filter light off. To reset the ice maker open the freezer door and then pull out the ice bin. on the bottom of the ice maker theres a button that you have to hold in to reset the ice maker. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa

SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)
