This week, fridge starting not cooling/freezer (almost 5 year old fridge). Just shut off. Unplugged, did a reset and after a bit of fiddling around resetting/unplugging, fridge started cooling again. 4 days later, same thing, but with the added issue that when doing a hard reset, the entire LED display blacked out after it was flashing that it was in the process of resetting. After a bit of unplugged/re-plugging, fridge finally starting cooling.

When not cooling, goes into demo mode (lights on/fan running), just won't fire up when not in demo mode.

Control board going on it? Would be nice if it just failed hard.

Or inverter board. Tried looking for the repair manual and could find one for that model for testing purposes.

Thanks. Now I wait for it to act up again because everything is good right now and no faults.

2 months with no issues (knock on wood). Only possible cause/solution that I can run with right now is that I had the unit too close to the wall and was overheating/shutting down.

The 2nd time this happened, I made sure I had more room in the back and since then, everything is fine.
