O F on these freezer units means that your freezer thinks you shut the controls off. Generally that isn't the case but just in case that is the problem, press and hold the temp down button for 5 seconds and see if the temperature turns back on. If not, then that entire display board has failed and would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

There really is no process as I mentioned, all you do is press and hold the temp down button for 5 seconds and see if the temperature turns back on. If not, then that entire display board has failed and would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say.

I did the O F is still blinking

OK then the display board will need to be replaced because it has failed unfortunately. You'll need the full model number to look up the correct part number which is located on a sticker on the wall or ceiling inside the freezer somewhere.
