I turned the temperature down on my freezer so i could clean

Resolved Question:

I turned the temperature down on my freezer so i could clean it and now it won't freeze. None of the button's work and the window says OF, which I assume is OFF but I can't make it turn back on. I tried turning it off and then back on. Nothing happens. this is an upright freezer Model #253-28092801, any ideas on what wrong and how to fix it?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

try pushing and holding down the control lock button for 5 seconds. if it doesn't come back on then you need to replace the control board. unfortunately these can fail at anytime. heres a link to the part., hope this helps, thanks Bryan

I tried what you said and the control lock light came on but it still wouldn't let me change anything else and while as soon as I took my finger off the button it went back to the previous OF ...any other suggestions?
