I used the service manual for the RF267A RF26XA to guide me through the disassembly of my refrigerator evaporator cover to get at the ice that had formed there. I had to get the unit back up and running and didn't get a chance to do any more troubleshooting. The LED panel diagnostic instructions in the service manual refer to button combinations that aren't on my RF263. If this unit has such a feature, does anyone know how to access it? I'd like to get some more info before I go in with my multi meter.

I can't find a picture of the buttons on your control panel (upload one) ?
Sears shows that your control is # 2
DA97-07049Q
the same part number as on
RF26XAERS
RF26XAEWP

which should be included in the service manual

That looks like the panel (page 20 in the User Manual).The Service manual for the RF26XA refers to a Lighting/alarm button that is pressed along with the Power Freeze (?) button to initiate the diagnostic program. My unit doesn't have a Lighting /alarm button. The RF263 may not have a diagnostic. Or, is that just crazy talk?

So, I have a 265 in 263's clothing,eh? Thanks for the info. Now, when I start the diagnostic by following the manual instructions and press/hold the Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons for 8 sec, the display shows "88" (all LED legs lit) on both sides. I'm assuming that this means there's no error code to report. If that's correct, can I assume that the sensor and heater for the refigerator evap are OK?
