compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug
I went google and typed in --fault code 88-88 for samsung fridge model rf26aewp and the first site up is error codes /messages/ blinking
the site is support-us.samsung>popup>iframe
there is a detailed answer there with a list of fault codes as well and what they indicate
there are other sites that also refer to the fault that you have
Based off what you have described your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code of 36 hours. Normally it will display that once power has been restored, it is indicating that the freezer has been without power for 36 hours. Hold the "alarm reset" for 3 seconds and that should help clear out the code. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
Good Afternoon Glenda, thank you for your inquiry!
Is it possible that the error code is missing characters?
According to my research 8 is not a valid error code. The number 8 is more like
a temperature setting, however to be certain, let's try resetting the appliance.
It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit on. Set the
correct temperature and please allow 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize.
The error code should clear and the unit resume to normal operations. I ask
that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to
advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed
What is the model number?This error code FF indicates a problem with the main control board. When the power cord is disconnected for 30 seconds and then reconnected, it resets the board. Sometimes this procedure corrects the problem and sometimes it does, for only a short period of time. Usually in this case, the main board will need to be replaced.
Take and close down the suction valve on the compressor and then try to start the unit after you recover some of the refrigerant out of the compressor the reason that it is acting like that is probebly because the compressor is full of refrigerant and slugging the valves. also verify the you have all the lesgs of power going to the unit. let me know how this turned out.
