The code OF OF on a Samsung refrigerator indicates that the fridge is in display mode, also known as demo or showroom mode. This is a setting used when the appliance is being displayed in a store, so customers can see it in action.
When you’re shopping for a new fridge, you may notice that some models have a “display mode.” This is a setting that’s typically used when the fridge is on display in a store.
The Samsung refrigerator “showroom mode” saves energy by keeping the compressor from running. OF OF code means do not let the compressor run when it’s being demoed in a showroom, because it doesn’t need to be running. It turns on the refrigerator’s sales mode, which showcases its technology and efficiency.
Demo mode stops Samsung fridges from making ice and dispensing water, but it also disables their cooling systems. It’s an important function for retailers to use, but it doesn’t really translate to everyday domestic use — although some people do like dispenser-free fridges.
Samsung Refrigerator OF OF Code – Troubleshoot And Diagnosis
The Samsung refrigerator has a Showroom Mode that illuminates the fridge and its contents but keeps the compressor from running. This is useful for displaying refrigerators in showrooms or on retail store floors — when customers see the fridge with its bright lights, they can get a better sense of what the fridge looks like.
The Samsung Showroom Mode is only for show! It lets your refrigerator be displayed with all the lights on, and no cooling taking place. You will also notice that your ice maker and water dispenser won’t work. When the OF OF code is shown, the Samsung refrigerator is not cooling.
If you’re not sure what that OF OF code on the Samsung refrigerator display panel means, you’re probably not alone. Many people come into my shop asking me to help them figure it out — and almost everyone comes in thinking they know the answer before I tell them!
When the OF OF code displays on a Samsung refrigerator, it means that something has been disabled and the settings need to be updated. Many times, if you buy one off the showroom floor (also known as a “floor model” or “demo unit”) this feature is enabled by default.
Many people buy a fridge off the showroom floor without realizing that it was once used for demonstration purposes.
If your Samsung refrigerator is displaying an OF OF code, this means that the fridge is not cooling and will require a reset. You can easily reset the refrigerator using the display panel. Doing so should get your fridge back to normal and cooling properly again.
