I replaced the main control board (high voltage) on my KitchenAid refrigerator with a supposedly new board. Now the digits in the Freezer and Refrigerator temperature indicators read PE0 & 000 respectively. I found info for programs the refrigerator to accept the new board on other websites but none of these programming options seems to work, as in no response to the key strokes. Is there a fix to get the refrigerator to accept this main control board?

These are the directions I followed: 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 theProgram 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

Hi,

That control board has been discontinued and is no longer available: WP12782036SP Electronic Control Board

So where did you get it from since they no longer make it?

If its used it will not work on your machine. It has to be new to be programmed correctly.

I purchased it from an online seller. It was advertised as new. I have the code for my refrigerator but can’t figure out how enter it. Frustrating!
