Can't sign in to Google calendar on my Samsung refrigerator

I have a Samsung RF4289HARS refrigerator.  The Google calendar app on it has been working perfectly since I purchased the refrigerator August 2012.  However, with the latest changes in Google Calendar API, I can no longer sign in to my calendar.  I receive a message stating " Please check your email in Google Calendar website".  I can sign in fine on my home PC and have no problem seeing the calendar on my phone.  Perhaps this is a Samsung issue, but I thought I would try here first.  Has anyone else experienced this problem and what was the solution?

Sounds like your fridge needs a software update to use the new API version.

I have the same fridge and in the last few days have had the same problem.  I have tried creating a new Google account and no luck even with a completely clean calendar.  It signs in, but when the data is being parsed, it fails and gives the message you quoted about the Google website.  I tested purposefully giving it the wrong password and it fails to even log in.  I can see the app log in, but fails when data begins to populate.   Anyone know how to get Google and Samsung talking to fix this?  Thanks, Rob

I have the 28 CF 4-DR W/LCD APPS MODEL: RF28HMELBS the first frig they delivered the calendar work fine but the delivery people damaged it so they delivered another one and now I get the error "Please check your email in Google Calendar website"  I just got the frig yesterday and I remember the first frig it did a firmware update when I first powered it on.  This one with error didn't do a firmware and it's on 1.145.  I have a ticket out to Samsung.

Having the same problem - and Samsung support only advised to restart the refrigerator and check timezone - neither resolved the issue.  Very anxious to get this fixed as this is how my young daughter knows her daily schedule.

Yep, same here.  They told me to restart and then unplug.  The restart and the AC reconnect still leaves user data in the fridge. If it isn't an API issue that has changed on Googles backend Service end. then maybe some corrupt data is in the calendar cache and is not allowing it to download correctly any longer.  The app still signs into the calendar as it successfully goes past the login and starts to paint the grid before it beeps and errors out to the "Check Google Website" message.  There's no info on how to erase all user data and return the panel to factory defaults.  Any idea out there on how to do that?  As I said the reset just reboots, but doesn't flash it back to the way it came from the factory. Thoughts? Thanks, -Rob
