I'm having a problem with the Door display and the Pantry panel. The door display only show portions of the LED symbols when trying to set temperature and other options. However, when I run diagnostics, it appears that all display functions work. Additionally, the pantry control panel is completely out. No display at all and unable to make any selections. The reefer and freezer are still operational, all interior lighting works and the ice maker and water dispenser are working. I'm at a loss seeing as how I can't read faults from any diagnostics I run. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Corrected model number

Thanks!

On this model the Pantry board can get stillage or condensation underneath it and cause the board itself to burn out, or the wires to it corrode, I'd check that first.

Rick helped another person with this similar problem, you can see the photos he uploaded of his damaged Pantry board:

Here's the Pantry board for your model:
