I had a power...

I had a power outage and my Samsung French door fridge is flashing 1E. This has happened before and I know you press 2 buttons together but can't remember which. This fridge does not have awaterdispenser on the door so the flashing display is inside on the top.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

RFG293HAPB/XAA

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

There is no Lighting button on the inside buttons - I don’t have the outside wAter dispenser that apparently has that option. My choices are ice off, power freeze, freezer, fridge, power cool and e saver.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I’d rather email

RFG293HAPB/XAA Samsung

I will have to opt out of this question. I do not have to needed info for you in my database.

Some one will pick up your question and hopefully get you the info to get it reset.

I 1E code means the power has failed and should be just a matter of finding out the correct pads to press on your control.

I will continue to look and come back if no one has helped you out.

please - I need to know the 2 buttons to press to stop the flashing after a power outage

what are the two top buttons on your unit? The one on the left and one on the right? I believe it should be power freeze and e saver try holding those two for 5 seconds.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
