    I had the same exact Problem. Power outage, then just blinking bar, and nothing worked. Light inside worked. I called Samsung and they told me to hold different buttons. Didn't work. We were without the fridge all weekend. Luckily we have a seperate freezer. They were useless. Then tried to schedule a service call. They said they would call in 24-48 hrs. Closed on weekends, called today, and they say they don't service Raleigh, NC. (Are you kidding me?) Luckily I used Live Search (Microsoft search engine) and found this site. Tried holding those 2 buttons down, and the ****** turned on. THANKS A MILLION whoever posted the solution.

    We turned off power to install a dishwasher and our Samsung refrigerator wouldn't start up again. One blinking green light and nothing happening, we tried unplugging it, nothing and called repair service. I went to this site and hooray, I fixed it by pressing the power freeze and power cool buttons. Thanks for the help and cost of repair service. Thank you for helping me.

That just worked for me too. Hold the power freeze and power cool buttons down at the same time and it will reset it after a power surge. All I had working was a light inside the door and a blinking green light on the display panel.

This worked for me to, exactly as mentioned. Help the Power Cool and Power Freeze buttons down for 10 seconds. Has anyone made an headway with Samsung on this issue? It is not much of a solution, if you plan on going away for several days.

    You will love this. I called Samsung, escalated to 2nd tier support then to an engineer...and this is exactly what they told me.... "The power needs to be off for more than three minutes for the auto-reset to kick-in". I told them that this was insane, that the majority of poower outages are VERY short. How does anyone have any confidence leaving there home for several days, particularly in the summer, when we have most of our t-storms. My solution is to buy a small UPS to capture all of the short outages. Other thoughts on this?

Had a new circuit board ordered from my local service guy. He said a min of $250 for the board. I googled the model # and got this site. Thanks for saving me $400 for parts & labor!!!

Power cool and power freeze 10 seconds does it but why no auto reset samsung no help at all I dont think they even have a solution other then replace a 1700$ board Samsung should have a recall out on this problem. Pisses me off that the company does not even have the solution in the book. I have now moved and had a call from the new owners on how to reset the fridge What if your away? I will not be buying another Samsung anything because of this. I love the fridge but its not that great. LG all the way.

Posted on Jun 16, 2008

I googled and found this sight thank you so much. I know I did hold this these two buttons, but must not held long enough. We even called the 800 number for samsung and they gave us no help.

Posted on Jun 15, 2008

Worked for me also...Thanks much...

A circuit was out,which included tv and frig, moved frig everything went back on! what happened?


If the whole house power wasn't down, then you could have a circuit breaker that is flaky or a wire connection in the breaker panel or at one of the outlet boxes along the way from the panel to your outlets. If it happened once, it will happen again. I'd cycle the power at the breaker, just on general principles to make sure the movable components within the breaker are where they are supposed to be. If it happens again, I'd start at the breaker and check every outlet box in that circuit for a loose connection, either a screw or wirenut. Breakers aren't expensive to replace if you can't find any loose connections along the way.

My fredge rm 2652 not working


You need to check your fuses on the fuse panel inside your coach. The frig will not operate on gas or electric without 12 volt power to the frig circuit board.
