The Family Hub platform is the up-to-date software that advanced models of smart refrigerators are equipped with. They help not only to manage food stocks but also to maintain family relationships, prepare food, take into account everyone’s preferences, find out news, follow the weather, entertain and much more. Therefore, if error code 41 appears on the display of the Samsung refrigerator, this means that it has temporarily lost all the nested functions, except for the main one – to generate cold.
What is error code 41 associated with?
It refers to the central board responsible for the virtual capabilities of the unit. Among them are:
- support for network functions in the frame of the Smart Home;
- Internet access for entertainment and leisure activities for families;
- control of products, their accounting, and well-timed order;
- cooking using commands sent to household appliances;
- connection to all devices located in the kitchen, etc.
Error 41 indicates a disconnection between the internal modules of Family Hub – the center of artificial intelligence. Because of this, the refrigerator stops working properly: it does not respond to requests, does not connect to the Internet, and loses connection with other components of the Smart Home system.
Connection failure and hardware error of any of the applications can be instigating factors. In some models, instead of the number 41, code 42 appears, accompanied by internal flashing lights – periodic blinking of the display.
How to eliminate error code 41 independently?
Unlike conventional digital devices, clearing memory and temporary files on such equipment will not give the desired effect. A full reboot is needed. So, error code 41 in Samsung refrigerator is eliminated as follows:
- Press the Power button on the door in the upper right;
- hold the button until switched off;
- switch on Family Hub again.
If, after all the actions, error 41 appears again, you should contact the service center.
Professional methods of solving the problem
In this case, the failure signal can be eliminated with the help of the workshop service. Experts will update the software. Then they will reboot and restart the refrigerator so that the system performs a self-diagnostics and enters the operating mode. This will correctly eliminate error code 41. Self-intervention is undesirable. An extremity measure is a qualified repair, which is unhelpful to perform it independently.
