Samsung Refrigerator OF OF Code On Display – How To Clear?

What does OF OF mean on a Samsung refrigerator? The Samsung fridge OF OF code means the refrigerator is in Display Mode, Demo Mode, or Showroom Mode. These modes are meant for displaying the appliance in a store or showroom, such as on the showroom floor at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Best Buy, etc. This “Showroom Mode” is incorporated into all Samsung refrigerators with a digital display panel. The OF OF code is meant to not let the compressor run when the refrigerator is being displayed for demo purposes.

If the Samsung refrigerator is in Showroom Mode, the interior lights and the display panel will illuminate, but the compressor will not run. This is done purposefully so the compressor does not run when the fridge is displayed at a store or on a showroom floor. This lets the refrigerator be displayed with all the lights working, but no cooling taking place. You will also notice that the ice maker and water dispenser will not work. When the OF OF code is shown, the fridge is not cooling.

When you see the OF OF code on the refrigerator display panel, it may have been accidentally set. Many times the OF OF will display if you buy the refrigerator off the showroom floor, also known as a “Floor Model”. When the OF OF is shown, and your Samsung refrigerator is not cooling, you will need to reset the refrigerator using the display panel to get the fridge back to normal and cooling again. When your Samsung refrigerator shows the OF OF or OFF code, here is how to reset it…

  1. Two times I had to remove freezer drawer and remove ice that formed under the freezer drawer. It would get thick ( the ice) that I was just able to pull the drawer open.

    1. I having the same problem with rf263teaesr/as
      Showing off off for both freezer and fridge. I did hold both button to reset it but nothing change. Please help

  2. My wife accidentally leaned up against the display buttons of our Samsung RS265TD side by side and the OF code displayed. Could not get it off. User Manual no help. Researched on web including Samsung and this site. All instructions were to hold down two buttons for 5-8 seconds and it would reset. No matter which two buttons I held simultaneously, the OF code would not change. I finally tried leaving the door to the fridge open while holding the two buttons on the left side and it worked. So, if none of your button holding works, try doing it with the fridge door open.

    1. Hi Mike, thank you so much, this really works, my Samsung RS265TD is working now after 28hrs of trying all YouTube methods. You just saved me bunch of $$.

      1. My Samsung double door refrigerator is blinking error code 5E, we had a power outage but can’t reset it back. What can be the problem, how can I reset it?

        1. ALLEN VETTER - DIY Repair Assistant

          What causes error code 5E on a Samsung refrigerator?
          This fault means a problem with the defrost sensor.
          This part acts as an on/off switch for your heater and timer.
          So most likely, you need to replace the DEFROST SENSOR.
          Do some troubleshooting, such as turning the refrigerator off for about 15 minutes and plugging back in.
          Then see if the error code 5E clears.
          If the 5E comes back, replace the defrost sensor.

  6. I have fridge RS267TD Samsung with message OF OF which keys I must pressing for clear this message. Please I need a quiky response.

  7. Hello. I have a Samsung model rf4287hars/xaa. Today I noticed water dripping from the ice maker and the food inside starting to thaw. On the screen panel, it showed “OF OF” (not flashing). I reset this by holding the energy and freeze buttons, and the “OF OF” went away. However, there still isn’t any cooling going on. No ice, and fridge not cooling. Is there any other reason to get this indication?

  8. My Samsung refrigerator model RF 4287 series has a display 6 E
    Can you please let me know what is wrong or if I can reset it?
    Thank you

  9. My fridge has the of of on display and I’ve tried and tried to get it to come out of that mode it seems to be stuck. Any suggestions

  10. Thank you! I used the chat-line type help that Samsung has but they couldn’t help me. This site had me press a different combination and it worked!

  11. Thank you! The demo setting somehow got switched on today and I couldn’t figure out what on earth was wrong, as this isn’t in the manual. What a ridiculous “feature” to include in the easily-accessed door panel! I have five small kids and who knows if it was one of them or someone accidentally leaning on the panel who turned on the display mode. You shouldn’t be able to turn your fridge off (and yet have it appear to be working) so easily!

    1. My samsung refrigerator model RF263BEAESR temperature is at 77F I tried to reset it pressing the freezer and fridge buttons but it still goes back to 77F and is icing all food. How do I fix this?

  12. Scott Burdine

    Fridge is displaying OF, according what I am reading, this means it is set in demo mode, tried all options to reset and it is not working, any advice? Fridge model # is rs265tdbp.

  13. My refrigerator shows the Of Of code and after I reset by holding power freeze and energy saver the screen shows 0 0 and after it shows those numbers for a bit it goes back to showing Of Of. I am not sure what to do after that.

    1. Our Samsung refrigerator went out in a lightning storm. I didn’t know what OF OF meant. I didn’t know it meant the refrigerator was off. I let it go for a day and my wife realized the refrigerator wasn’t working. She looked up this site and found the possible fixes. We did the sequence recommended and shazam the refrigerator seems to be working just fine. The codes went out and the panel looks the way it always did, I’ll know in a couple of hours but the motor is running and all looks fine. Thank you very much for the excellent recommendations.

    2. Tried to reset my refrigerator and the displayed -2 F and 38 F goes back to O F. How do I keep the display that I set?

  14. I reset and it’s working but what caused it to do that in the 1st place? I don’t want it happening again since things started to thaw before I noticed it.

  15. I have Samsung rs267tdpn
    Displaying the of of. I hold the energy saver button and power freeze button and sometimes it goes away and 2 0’s pop up then after like 30 seconds they go away and the of of comes back

  16. I had The two codes OFOF and it reset where the codes went away but the compressor is not running. Please advise. My refrigerator is thawing everything :(

  17. I have a Samsung mdl# RFG296HDWP/CAN. While trying to set a forced defrost I lost the lighted display. How do I reset the display?

  18. I had The two codes OFOF and it reset where the codes went away but the compressor is not running. Please advise.

  19. I have a Samsung refrigerator , model RS265TD that is displaying the error code OF
    I have tried all the methods described on this site and the error code won’t clear. The ice maker and water dispenser still seem to be working though.

  20. In pressed the power freeze and freeze button down on my Samsung refrigerator and I heard the compressor start but every time I try to set the temps it goes back to what it was displaying at first 77 degrees.

    I have a Samsung model RS265TDBP and the OF OF error code is displayed.
    I tried holding buttons down but not working.

    1. I have a RF263BEAESR and there was a code OFOF. We got the code off but the compressor is now not running. Please advise.

  23. I did the reset heard the compressor kick on for about 6 secs, now I cant hear it running, but it is no longer displaying the OF it is actually showing nothing now. Is it a matter of waiting?
