KFIS20XVMS00 KitchenAid, new control board will not enter programming mode


Feb 16, 2020
Model Number
More than 10 years
The ice and water dispensers stopped working so I installed a new main control board fixed that problem.
The problem is that it will not enter program mode.
What works:
1. Start with display showing PE0 000 FLASHING
2. press water and the Lower Left (LL) button
3. release the water button
4, hold LL for 3 seconds
5. Display shows PE STEADY
When I release the LL, the display reverts to step one, thus will not enter programming mode. It is supposed to display PE0. 000 STEADY when it enters program mode.

NOTE: If you attempt to enter an invalid Program CODE the control will not save the new code, but will beep. (The unit will NOT run with a Program CODE of 0000).Once the Program CODE has been saved the Programming Mode is exited by pressing any key. If the new code is incorrect this process should be repeated.

The Programming mode can be exited at any time by pressing Door Alarm key for 3 seconds or will exit if unattended for four minutes.
