You need to replace the motherboard located in the lower rear area of the unit,especially if you just lately had a refrigerator light bulb burn out,as this creates a surge and ruins the boards electronic trace,the above symptoms you described point to this it is very common,also if you hear a rapid clicking of a relay and the lights are strobing or dimly flashing this is another sign of the board being defective

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.

The OF OF display is the OFF setting, used for display purposes, so the light and controls light, but the refrigerator does not run while it is on display at a dealer. Try pushing in and holding the top two buttons on the left side of the display for about 5 seconds at the same time to get it out of the display mode. You should be able to set temps then.

I have a Uline CLR 2160 ice maker. I am trying to


Your display will only show ice or off. There is no temperature settings.Now when I give the directions to put it into clean make sure the green led above the symbols is on steady. If you hold down the on/off key and hit the light key 3 times then release the on/off key last.(give a 1/2 second delay from releasing on/off key. It should go to CL. If led lights dont comeon then let me know.

The refrigerator temp keeps returning to 65 after I set it at 34.


After you set the temp (at 34) the refrigerator display changes to show the current temp inside your refrig. (apparently it was 65) As the unit runs, this display will lower until arriving at the set temp.
