Why Are The Bars Scrolling On The Display Of My RS261MD?

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

RS261MD Demo Mode

If your refrigerator is not cooling, it may be in Cooling Off/Demo Mode. Cooling Off/Demo Mode is a feature used by retailers to display the refrigerator without running the compressor.


If your unit is not cooling, and the bars are constantly scrolling up and down the temperature display, your unit is in Cooling Off Mode.


To take the unit out of Cooling Off Mode, press and hold the "Lighting" and "Freezer" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.


To take the unit out of Cooling Off Mode, press and hold the "Lighting" and "Freezer" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.


You will hear a chime which indicates that the unit has been successfully removed from Demo Mode. If no chime occurs, and if the temperature display is still scrolling, the unit is still in Demo Mode.

Why Are The Bars Scrolling On The Display Of My RS261MD?

Note: Pay very close attention when touching "Lighting" and "Freezer" simultaneously. If you touch "Freezer" first you will hear a chime and the display will show the set temperature, however the unit will still be in Cooling Off Mode. Then after a few seconds the bars will begin scrolling again. This means that the unit was never taken out of Cooling Off Mode.
