    Try resetting it by pressing the top left and right buttons on the display and holding them for 10+ seconds. Let me know the outcome.

    Many thanks for your response.

    Did that (pressed the top left and right buttons on the display and held them for 10+ seconds). Got flashing 88 89 and beeping for 10 seconds. Then back to normal.

    I await falling ice cubes...

    No joy, I'm afraid.

    Cool! (Pun intended). It worked for me after our GE PFSF6PKWBWW was unplugged for a couple hours for evaporator drain de-iceing/repairs. The flashing "88"'s had me stymied after plugging it in again. Thank you!

    Had the same issue tonight with a power outage and 82/88 error codes on screen. Chatted with a Samsung Tech who said I had to schedule a technician to come fix it. Tried your suggestion and it worked like a charm. Apparently Samsung doesn't have a clue. Thanks for your advice.

    Hello Sek9853e,

    The reset sequence didn't work for my RF266ABRS either but after trying different combinations I finally got it to reset. My Samsung has 6 buttons, 3 left and 3 right, holding the middle buttons, "Power Freeze" and "Power Cool", of each set for 15 seconds got the unit to reset and state the correct temperature setting.
    I hope this works for you.

    Thanks to Parts Dr for the initiative.

    I wanted to say thank you. I bought a Samsung RF26XAEBP that had this on the front from less than $300. He thought it was the motherboard and had a spare. I swapped them out and still had the same problem, but then I started looking around and found this site and thread. Sure enough, it cleared it.. Now, there are a couple of the digits portions that are out, so I will need to fix that, but you can basically make it out. Now I got a great new fridge, but just have to replace the water tank, because Im not getting water or ice, but a puddle in the bottom of the fridge. Looked into it, and low and behold the bottom tank was severed in half. I'm replacing that and the filter now, and hopefully that will resolve everything, but we shall see. But I did register in here to say thank you.
