Demo mode is built into the electronics for dealers. This allows the dealer to show potential customers all of the functions of the refrigerator on the floor with the exception of “Cooling Mode” this helps with energy consumption.

On Samsung refrigerators that don’t have a display, the lights will be scrolling up and down. This means the same thing. The refrigerator is in Demo/Floor model mode.

To get the refrigerator out of demo you need to press several buttons. This button sequence is the same for display and non display mode. The only exception is for models that use the WiFi touchscreen.

Press the top left button and the one directly below it at the same time and hold in for 3-5 seconds. This will get rid of the OF OF or scrolling display and send the refrigerator directly back into “cooling mode”

  1. We had the rolling lights on our display and were told by a repairman that we needed a new board. Boards were ordered and installed but did not work. Old boards put back in and I ran across your article about taking fridge off Demo mode. That put the lights back to normal, but fridge still has not kicked on. Is there a way to fridge or is there another issue? please advise

    • Hi, that should have started the fans, lights, and compressor. If it didn’t then there is another issue. The problem would be one of the boards or the compressor.

  2. Thank You I thought I was going to lose my food I think that feature is stupid because it went into demo mode by its self lucky I was here thanks again
