    I tried the solution but it goes off and shows the temperature and then it goes back to the same code

    that is because you have to simultaneously push down power saver and freezer button (make sure your fingers are right in the middle,not too high or too low!) for at least 3 seconds.

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. How it gets activated I don't know. 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.

    I did that for mine and the 0F came back in a few minutes. Found somewhere else that suggested unplugging for 10 min. I guess that did a major "re-boot". That was an hour ago. Seems to be working fine and inside temps are coming down.

    Mine does not have that combination - I did try ENERGY SAVER and FREEZER - it works.

Press ENERGY SAVER AND FREEZER buttons simultaneously for at least three seconds. It is very important that your fingers are right in the middle, not on the sides, or too high or too low. I just chatted with a live agent about it and fixed the problem after an hour of trying the other procedure.

Energy saver AND freezer buttons at the same time took care of it! The compressors started immediately!

Ayyiyi, no solution yet after trying a gazillion different combos of stuff, freezer works fine, fridge just refuses to cool. Trying this solution there must be some secret code as can hear fridge running if I put my ear to it, and it does not go above 50, so it must be cooling somewhat after 3 days. Will let ya know if I find a secret to this, it must be there somehow...Second time for me in 2 months, and very frustrated, Samsung service sucks, they just read off a screen and have no idea and can barely speak English. They are or so they say, sending out A&E Factory Repair, which is about a week or two away, and their reviews are absolutely horrific, so hesitate to even let them touch my brand new french door unit. Anyone in Maine or thereabouts have anyone they have used to fix this...seems to be a pretty fairly common problem, would think Samsung would get on top of it and not blow it off to some fly by night service company with a very bad reputation. Email me if anyone finds an answer and will post here too if I find it. bob04951@hotmail.com Thanks!!!

Tried the other options below nothing worked called a repair company. $75 later and 5 minutes he said it’s fixed. Press Power Feeze and Feezer at the same time. Save your self the service call.

I have a samsung refrigerator error code 39 e, 40 e and 22 e what does this mean and what do I do about it?


39E is a bad ice maker as you know. Try to heat up the ice maker with a hair dryer in case ice has jammed the ice maker from rotating properly. If it still doesn't work, the entire ice maker would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. '

So error 40E means your ice maker fan isn't running properly and 24E means your freezer isn't defrosting properly. Both items are inside the freezer behind the back wall. You'll need to pull everything out of the freezer and remove the entire back wall inside the freezer. Thaw any ice or frost built up you see with a hairdryer. Re-install everything and then on the dispenser press and hold the upper right and upper left buttons to reset the error codes. If everything resets, then great. If it won't reset, then you need to replace your defrost temperature sensor clipped onto the top of the silver coils behind the back panel you removed, and you also need to replace the ice fan motor.

This error code means the ice maker sensor is bad. On Samsung the sensor is part of the actual ice maker which you can find here.

It is showing a code: OF followed by oF


Your refrigerator is in demo mode. For a detailed description of how to get refrigerator out of demo mode, press the two button on the upper left side of display for 3 to 5 seconds or until the OF dissapears. If your refrigerator does not have a display on the front side, do a search for "how to take samsung refrigerator out of cooling mode/ demo mode" and it should give you several options available for your model of refrigerator.
Hope this helps
