Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your refrigerator. OF being displayed on the panel just means the cooling system of the unit has been turned off and the control needs to be reset.

Try pushing in at the same time both the top and bottom button on the left side of the control panel hold them both down until you hear a chime/ding sound at that time OF should clear from the display and a few minutes later the unit should kick back on. Let me know if that does not work, thanks.

I kindly ask at this time that you go ahead and click on the 5th star of the star rating system at the top of your page. Afterwards If you have any follow up questions they will be free and I will continue to help until you are completely satisfied. It's very much appreciated, Thank You!
