Question about Samsung RF265AA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

My Samsung refrigerator will not cool

I have a Samsung French Door Bottom Freezer unit (Model RF265AASH/X). The digital temperature is showing "OF" for both the Refrigerator and Freezer compartments.
I have tried unplugging to reset as instructed in the manual but when plugging back in, it is still steady on "OF".
Everytime I try to set the temperature, it reverts back to "OF".
Please help....food is going to spoil..
Thank you.

Call Samsung. I had the same problem when Best Buy delivered mine. The delivery people left the fridge in demo mode. The people at Samsung will talk you through it, it is very simple. The fridge should work fine then.

The freezer is set at -4. How do I adjust it? Everything is freezing too much.


Hi Marisa:
Following is the instruction for adjusting the freeser temperature for your Samsung refrigerator:
You press the freezer temperature button repeatedly till you see your desired temperature. If you want to set it to -2F, stop when the display shows -2F and don't press the freezer button again. After 5 seconds this new temperature will be set.

The instructions from the Samsung manual is shown below:
Controlling the Freezer temperature:
The Freezer temperature can be set between 8°F and -14°F to suit your particular needs. Press the Freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at 4°F. The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°F to 8°F. When the display reaches 8°F, it will begin again at -14°F. Five seconds after the new temperature is set, the display will again show the actual current freezer temperature. However, this value will be changed to the new temperature.

French Door: Why Does The Control Panel Display "OF OF" Instead Of The Temperature? If the control panel displays "OF OF" instead of the temperature, the refrigerator is in "Cooling Off" mode. In Cooling Off mode, the refrigerator appears to be running normally, but the compressor is off so the unit does not cool. Cooling Off mode is used by retailers to save energy when the refrigerator is on the showroom floor.
Note: Cooling Off mode is also called Demo mode or Exhibition mode.

Disable Cooling Off mode by performing the following:
  • 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."

These fridges go through all sorts of cycles, the defrost cycle is probably the noisiest, strange sounds are ok, it will tell you when something serious is wrong, alerts & alarms.

Check for broken wires on your ice maker temperature sensor. On my model RF265AABP that was the problem causing display to read 88 88 with one digit blinking.
