What should I do when the refrigerator status display is blinking?

Last Update date : 2021-02-27

Some models of Samsung Refrigerators that have a display can show a blinking on the display to indicate some status on what is happening in the refrigerator.  Check out the possible cause of it and things to do when you encounter a blinking display on the Samsung Refrigerator.


Reasons of blinking status display

A blinking status display is trying to get your attention.

  1. Typically because the temperature is too high and things need to cool down. 
  2. It could also be because a door has been left open. 
  3. Internal power issues on the Samsung refrigerator.


Set the refrigerator to the recommended temperature

The best setting for the fridge is 3°C and for the freezer temperature is -18°C to -20°C However, this will vary depending on the types of food, drinks, and products stored in the fridge. 

Always keep the fridge below 4°C and the freezer below -18°C to maintain food safety standards.


Make sure the door of the refrigerator closed properly

If the door of the refrigerator is not closed properly that will cause the compressor to operate more to adjust the temperature.

 The display might be blinking to get your attention to close the open door.


Note: Unplug the refrigerator for 10 seconds. Plug it back in if the display panel is flashing or displays the message "88 88". This will reset the processor and should fix the problem.

Note: You may need to book a service visit if the blinking issue still appears after following the guide above. Please call our contact center to get help about the issue. Our helpful agents will be there to help you.
