Question

My Samsung RF265ABWP's is displaying 88's. What is wrong with it?

A few months ago the power went out and when it came back on the digital display wouldn't show the current temperature for fridge or freezer. I unplugged it for 10 min and still showed 88's.

Question

How do I stop the leak under the cooling pantry?

There is a leak coming from a 'box' underneath the cooling pantry that sits at the back of the refrigerator, in the middle. I can not find out what this part is through the manual, nor does the troubleshooting guide provide much information. I have the Samsung French Door Model # RF265AB/RF266AB. This refrigerator is only 1.5 yrs old.

Water can pool on the bottom of the refrigerator, under the pantry drawer and vegetable compartments, due to condensation caused by doors being left open too long, for example. Please review the troubleshooting tips offered through this link for a similar model, following the instructions to help determine whether the water is accumulating as a result of condensation or if there is indeed an internal leak which would likely require service: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

After clicking on the above link, follow this path to the relevant article: Water And Ice > Water Is Leaking > Water Is Underneath The Vegetable Drawers

If, after reviewing these points, you continue to experience this issue, please contact Samsung for service either by submitting an online service request form through the troubleshooting page, or by calling 800-SAMSUNG.

Question

Control panel not working?

The refrigerator is running fine except the control panel is not working. It displays all 8's and when the buttons are pressed nothing happens. The ice maker also is not working. Press the reset button and it will dump the ice and refill with water but never drops again until the reset is hit.

Suggestion??

Question

How can I get my icemaker to make ice?

The icemaker on my RF265abwp fridge has stopped working completely. The ice tray does not fill with water. I have repleaced the filter twice. The filter does fill with water, so the water is flowing into the fridge. When I puch the reset button the icemaker goes through the motions (the arm comes down and goes up, the ice tray rotates). What are my next steps?

Question

The bottom of the refrigerator section(not the freezer) is full of water.

Fridge section is full of water, bottom freezer is dry. Water on the floor around the fridge. Ice maker working fine. No noticeable leaks inside, i.e. down the back of the unit. I found a small piece of ice in the water, round,-about the size of a soda can but only 3/8" thick. I suspect a drain is blocked or frooze. Don't know where to look but will shut off water to ice maker until I find the problem.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. If ice is forming under the Cool Select Pantry Drawer, it's possible that your refrigerator temperature is set either too high or too low. Please adjust the temperature to 38°F, if necessary. The water that is freezing may be the result of condensation or it may be an indication of a leak that may require service to repair. Try wiping up the water and waiting 24 hours. If water has accumulated there again by the next day, your refrigerator will require service. Please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

Answers
answer 1
The RF265ABWP is designed to produce approximately 5.3 pounds of ice per day under ideal conditions. Production may vary depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other factors, so if yours is making less than this, I would suggest checking the following:
- The recommended temperatures for the refrigerator and freezer compartments are 38°F and -2°F, respectively. If the freezer temperature is set higher than this, it could effect ice production. If the refrigerator is too cold, the water lines could freeze.
- Is something pressing against the lever that detects when the ice bin is full? The icemaker will not produce ice if it detects a full bin.
- Have you tried pressing the Test button on the bottom of the icemaker to reset it?
- Have you replaced your water filter recently? A clogged or partially clogged filter can slow water flow and effect ice production. After replacing the filter, you can bleed air from the lines by pressing the Test button again, but be sure to have a container under the icemaker to catch water that spills when the ice tray rotates.
- Is your home's water pressure sufficient? In order for the ice maker to operate properly, water pressure of 20~125 psi is required. If the Refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20psi), you may be able to install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
- The Power Freeze feature can help increase ice production by running the compressor for an extended period of time.

I hope these suggestions help to increase your ice production.

HOW LONG TO COOL

Thanks for the question. Though the compressor should come on and start cooling fairly quickly, it could take as long as 24 hours to reach the desired temperature. Factors influencing the speed of cooling include the difference between the set temperature and the room temperature, and whether warmer items were placed inside before the set temperature is reached.

If your refrigerator does not appear to be cooling, check to make sure it isn't on "demo" or "display" mode. The RF265ABWP should have a numeric temperature showing on the display. If it does not, and the letters "OF" are displayed there instead, then the refrigerator is in demo mode, meaning the cooling is off even though the lights are on. This is used for display purposes only. To enable cooling, simply press and hold the Power Freeze and Freezer buttons for 3 seconds, until you hear a chime.

If you are experiencing issues with cooling, please click on the following link, then on "Operation" for troubleshooting advice: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...
