What to do when Samsung Refrigerator is not cold enough?

Last Update Date : Oct 18. 2018

If your refrigerator and freezer are not cold enough, follow these steps:

Make sure the appliance is plugged in properly

If the appliance is not plug properly, remove the plug from the socket and then re-insert it.

If the plug is properly inserted, remove the plug and try plugging another item into the same socket. If the newly plugged in item does not work, try resetting the circuit breaker for that outlet.

Avoid Sunlight or Heat

If your refrigerator is in direct sunlight or located near a heat source, move the refrigerator if you can. If you cannot move it, lower the temperature controls in your refrigerator and freezer.

Lower the temperature

Lower the temperature control settings in your refrigerator and freezer. Let the refrigerator run for several hours and then re-check the temperature.

Secure enough space from the wall

Move the refrigerator so that the back of the appliance is further from the wall. The minimum clearance required between the back of the refrigerator and the wall is one inch.

Samsung Refrigerator or Freezer is not cold enough

Check Overload

Make sure that your storages do not take up 70% of the space or block the air vent which will affect the temperature.

Check the door

Check to make sure that the door is closed properly. Not doing so will cause cold air to leak out.

Check if it is in Demo Mode

If the Refrigerator is plugged in and powered on but it is still not cold enough, you may have accidentally placed it or left it in Demo Mode.


If it is in Demo Mode, the display will read OF-OF, which will disable the compressor in order to save electricity when the Refrigerator is on the showroom floor.

Turning off Demo Mode is easy and varies by Refrigerator model display type. Generally speaking, each model may require a different combination of display buttons. For example, some Models will require pressing the ENERGY SAVER and POWER FREEZE / FREEZER buttons for 3 seconds to cancel this mode. You will hear a chime.

If your model is not showcase below, refer to your manual section on Demo Mode or Cooling Off to learn about your specific Refrigerator type.
