I am sorry but that is not a valid model number. Please look inside of the refrigerator section for the manufacturers lable. The model number will be on it.

The Home Smithy :

FYI the model number is MFI....Not MF1

The Home Smithy :

You may need to unplug the unit for a couple of minuets and then plug it back in to reset the main control board.

The Home Smithy :

Please let me know if you require further assistance, or information.
If not, please click on "ACCEPT".
After you accept, please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Customer :

Sorry, I cannot accept your answer--nothing has changed!

The Home Smithy :

Marie, if unplugging the unit did not allow you to input the desired temperature settings into the unit then I am sorry but you have a bad main control board. As this is not an inexpensive part I recommend that you have a qualified service person come out and have a look at your refrigerator.

The Home Smithy :

NOTE: I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
