What 2 things are you holding? And what does the display say on it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I️ thought he held down power save & alarm at same time but that is not working
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 10 months ago.

To turn the refrigerator on (if it turned it off and the display says OF on it), press and hold the top left and middle left buttons together for 5 seconds on the dispenser panel and that should turn the refrigerator back on if it was turned off.
