So woke up this morning to my frig not working properly. The front control panel does not light up. If I press one of the buttons, the whole panel lights up, and if I press the water or ice button, it beeps loudly. Seems like the frig and freezer are also not working. Any ideas?

Hi,

It's going to be the main control board behind the machine. Seen this many times on my service calls.

Here's the main control board for your model you can order:
WPW10312695 Electronic Control Board


I'm attaching your tech data sheet below, it has the instructions to PROGRAM it after you install it.:)

Let us know how it goes.

My husband just checked the voltage and it checked out ok. The front control panel is the one not working, the fridge is actually still cooling. Trying to figure out how to access the front control panel. Any ideas?

Ok, since you say its cooling fine, Let's make sure we're on the same page. The display will light up and stay on intermittently and the buttons become unresponsive? If that's correct, check for +12V at the J1-3 wire on the display board.<---Your husband checked that already for +12V at the J1-3 wire on the display board?

If the voltage is correct replace the display board with this update kit:
Dispenser Control Board W10740217

Yes. He checked for that on the main board. I do have to retract my statement that the frig is still cooling or running. It is not. I thought it was bc the temp was not changing for a long time. When he checked the 2 voltages they were both good, but apparently there is still something wrong With the main board. We have ordered one and it should be here Friday. Will give you an update then. Thanks so much for your help.

Ok, that's fine, you retracted it just now by saying its not cooling. Yes, the main control board should fix it then, remember do the programming of it when you get it.

Update. We have replaced the main board and the compressor is running. However, I cannot seem to program it. The front control panel reads PE0 000. But when I press the freezer down and door alarm buttons nothing changes. what Do you think is the reason and will we be able to use this fridge?

Did you order the main control board from my link to it above at AppliancePartsPros?

Try it again:

Programming Mode:
NOTE: The Program Code is located on the Serial Plate on this unit after the word Code.
1. Press and hold the Door Alarm Keypad.
2. Press and hold Freezer Temperature DOWN /- Keypad within 3 seconds.
3. Release the Door Alarm Keypad and wait 3 seconds.
4. The control will display PE to indicate the programming mode.
5. Entry is confirmed by pressing the Freezer Temperature DOWN /- Keypad once more.
6. The control will display the current Program CODE. This value should be validated with the Program CODE printed on the unit serial plate.
NOTE: If the Program CODE is correct, the Programming Mode is exited by pressing Door Alarm Keypad for 3 seconds.
7. Press the Refrigerator Temperature UP /+ Keypad or Refrigerator Temperature DOWN /- Keypad to change the digit value with each key press.
8. The decimal point indicates the selected digit. Press the Freezer Temperature UP /+ Keypad to select the next digit.
9. Once the desired Program CODE is entered, press and hold the Freezer Temperature DOWN /- Keypad until the Program CODE begins flashing indicating it has been saved.
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.

I now see what I did wrong in the programming. I did not follow the directions exactly. I did go through it just now making sure I followed it correctly and it worked! Now I’m just waiting for everything to get cold to transfer all my stuff back into it. Thanks for your patience and your help.
