Question about Samsung RF267AEWP - 26 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator - White
Earlier today we had a brief (1 minute) power outage and when power was restored our Samsung fridge front panel displayed "88 88" with the last digit blinking as from "8" to "6". After unplugging the fridge for about 10 minutes per the manual, we replugged in and the display was the same but then reset some minutes after. However, now the compressor won't run. Could swear the compressor was running after the power outage. Any ideas?
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

Hello AnnArborMom, thank you for your inquiry!
I would recommend you adjusting the temperature to a lower setting to see if that would start your compressor to cool. If that is not successful I would contact a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. It could be that the power outage shorted the main control board or relay. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
