How to Turn Cooling Off Mode On/Off (RF4287)

Cooling Off mode disables the cooling system on your refrigerator, freezer, and ice maker for models that have one. When the refrigerator is in Cooling Off mode (aka Demo Mode), the display will show OF OF. In case you were wondering the purpose of such a feature, Demo Mode is used by retailers to display the refrigerator's features without running the cooling system. Read on to learn how to enable or disable this feature.

To disable Cooling Off mode, touch and hold the Energy Saver and Power Freeze on the display panel simultaneously. Continue holding until you hear a distinctive chime sound and both temperatures for the freezer and fridge are displayed.

If after 5-10 seconds, OF OF is displayed again, Cooling Off mode was not deactivated. Once again, touch and hold "Energy Saver" and "Power Freeze" until you hear the distinctive chime and the temperatures are displayed.


It can take up to five minutes for the compressor to turn on after Cooling Off Mode is deactivated.


If the refrigerator is not displaying OF OF and is not cooling at all, or if one compartment is cooling and the other is not, service is required.
