    • Hi,

      What is the model number friend? Also did you enter diagnostics to get this code or how did you come up with it?

  2. I have a Samsung Refrigerator model# RS263TDBP and I have searched all over the net to figure out how to access our diagnostic system to see why our freezer may have stopped working. Could you please tell us what to push on our panel to see if an error code comes up.

    Thank You,

    • Hi, thanks for taking the time to comment.

      If you press the top left and top right buttons at the same time what happens? It should go into diagnostic mode?

      Let me know what happens?
