Samsung Control Panel Temp shows OF OF
« on: February 16, 2017, 03:07:29 PM »
The control panel on my Samsung refrigerator RFG297HDRS has started showing the temperature as 0F 0F for freezer and fridge.  I found a post on this site telling how to get into service mode.  I've tried several times to change the temp for both freezer and fridge but can only set the fridge temp and then it goes back to showing 0F 0F.  This started 3 days ago when I accidentally brushed my hand across the control panel.

I just downloaded a manual for my refrigerator and found the 0F 0F means it's set in cooling off mode. To turn the cooling mode back on you press Energy Saver and Power Freeze for 5 sec.  After doing this the freezer temp shows -2 and the fridge shows 36. However it then goes back to 0F 0F.  Is there a button I can press to set this mode?

OF OF is demo mode (cooling off)
Check that the child lock is not on by holding ice off for 3-5 sec there should be a little lock symbol
To remove from sales mode press and hold energy saver and freezer temp for 3-5 sec unit you here the "ding dong sound"
If unit is entering sales/demo mode on its own try placing it in child lock mode and see if it enters demo mode by its self if it dose sounds like a main board if it stops only with child lock on its a User interface.

The unit shouldn't be going in to demo by its self
User interface part number da97-11332r
or a bad Main PCB da97-00147b.

Did you end up replacing the user interface?

Sorry, no I haven't had the money to order the part til now. I found where I can order the part for $158.  Because it continues to return to demo mode by itself I believe it's the main board and I've found several YouTube videos that show how to replace it.  It looks easy enough.  I'll post again when I get it replaced.
