Samsung Refrigerator Error Code 1E Blinking – How To Reset

If your Samsung refrigerator is blinking with the 1E error showing on the display, here is what it means and how to reset it. The 1E error code means the refrigerator lost power. This usually occurs from a power outage. When the 1E is displayed, the display panel will lose all functionality and the refrigerator will not dispense water or ice.

  1. My fridge had a 34 on it and it wasn’t cold. I unplugged it and after waiting 5 minutes plugged it back in and 1e appeared. I followed the reset directions and lights went off, but it’s still not cold.

  2. samsung RF4287 Error Codes 1E

    I pressed and held the ENERGY SAVER button and the LIGHTING button which are not illuminated and nothing happened. I tried this several times, same results.

    We had a power outage where the lights went on and off 3 times then came back on.

    Additional information: the water and ice maker were shut off about 6 months ago because of a leak.

  3. My Samsung refrigerator, model number. Rf28hfedtsr will not reset by pushing energy and lighting switch or the freezer/ fridge switch.

  4. I have error 13 E on my display at startup and also when i run diagnostics. Can you tell me what 13 E is. My freezer has stopped working. Appreciate the help.

  5. How can we stop the Refrigerator’s Compressor running at full strength when it comes back after a powercut?
    It does it even if the power has failed for a couple of minutes.
    It is sending our consumption up immeasurably since there are 5 or 6 cuts minimum a day!

    Raj Venkat,

    The Samsung Refrigerator Error 40E means the fan that supplies air to the icemaker is NOT working properly.
    Or there may be a board error, here is what you can do to try to reset…
    Press and hold the top right and top left buttons on the control panel together for 5 to 10 seconds to attempt to reset the control panel.
    If that does not work…

    To fix the issue after still getting the 40E error code and after trying to reset the control panel:
    If your Samsung is plugged into power and also not blocked with ice then REPLACE THE FAN MOTOR.

    How to access fan motor on Samsung refrigerator:
    -Remove the ice bucket
    -Remove the icemaker
    -Remove the back wall behind the icemaker
    -The fan is located here (in most Samsung refrigerators)
    -Remove and replace the fan motor


  7. I have a “40 E” error code on my Samsung French door refrigerator RF24SFEDBSR/BB. We moved the refrigerator from one house to another this morning. Waited 4 hours before turning ON.

  8. The control panel is dark except for 1 E error code. I have pressed and held the energy saver and lighting buttons and no change. The frig will dispense water and ice and appears to cool ok.

  9. I have reset the Error Code: 1E as instructed and it has worked, but every few days, it returns and I have to reset again. What could the issue be for causing this code to continuously appear without a power failure.
