Notice they tried to pair the remote?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 27, 2014 4:33 AM PDT

They didn't write they succeeded. One of the odd things is that during pairing, a few sets had me pairing within about 12 inches of the set. Sure it may have paired at 24 inches but I wasn't going to unpair and try again.

Link, comment.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 27, 2014 7:27 AM PDT notes a very recent firmware update. ASK SAMSUNG HOW TO USE as well as if this is the right version.

Did you repair the remote? I won't tell how since I want to hear from you the steps. Many claim they did but they often missed a vital step which means they may not be reading the manual on this.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
