How to deactivate demo mode in my refrigerator?

Last Update date : Dec 23. 2021

Demo mode (also called Exhibition mode, Cooling Off mode, or Shop mode) is usually used in a situation where a refrigerator is displayed at a retail shop. This is to allow consumers to freely explore the inside and outside of the product. In Demo mode, the refrigerator lights up and appears to be working. However, the cooling function is disabled, and the control panel turns on but does not work.

If there is no cooling in the refrigerator or you can see the "O FF" or "OF OF" sign on the display, check if the refrigerator is in "Demo mode". If you want to deactivate demo mode, follow the instructions in the following guide.
