Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. CLICK HERE for the service manual. Page 36 gives you specific instruction on reprogramming the control.

It appears that the control is faulty. You have done everything to reset and reprogram. I have gone through the service bulletins regarding this and we have done everything there is to do. My recommendation is to replace the control. Given the history of failure with these, I see no other option. We have reset all there is to reset and programmed all there is to program. I can't remember if you said you power cycled the unit, but if you have not, unplug for about 5 minutes then plug back in. If still no change, replace number 35 in the picture, located in the rear of the refrigerator. Part available HERE.
my fridge control panel does not look like the one pictured in the manual
light *door freezer fridge max
sensor alarm + - + - cool
Temp on/off humid
alarm 3sec control
the asterix are what are lit, the light on the dispenser are where ice and water come out is stuck on, I cannot get any thing but a beep when I try to hit cube or water or any other function like turn light to auto when in service mode I can get the water and light to function during the test but the fridge skips right over test #182 I think it was when I went thru the whole list in the manual . what does that mean?
I suspect the main control. The controls on the dispenser are low voltage switching controls only. They are only the user interface for the main control. All functions get their signal and power from the main control. Post your complete model AND serial number....I want to search specifically for that series and see if anything comes up that way.
well the format layout i tried to send you did not display as i typed it :)
My model number is XXXXX MFI2266AEU ser #10364644NC
Nothing new....model shows same as I looked up. My thought is control....there really is nothing else that would cause the unit o resist all programming and resets.
Well, thanks for the update! I learned something, thanks! I will put your question in for refund of your deposit. Thanks again for passing that info along!
