I have had this fridge about 15 months, woke up find everything warm in both fridge and bottom freezer, the accuchill temp control showed "-" (off) for both the fridge and freezer and I could not change them. I read the blog about forcing the unit into defrost and then run mode, got a display of "P E" then a flashing "2 1" then it ran. That only lasted a day and then it went back to "- -". Reran the same to get it running again.
I'm thinking it's the control board, but that's an expensive guess ($140).
Anything else I should check for before I go down the control board path?
