MBR2256KES
is this the board you checked ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

YES


 

okay . If the digital display is flat lined (which I believe you mean dashes no numbers) the board has failed and needs to be replaced in most cases. have you tried to reset the board yet ?

WHY DO WE NEED THE CODE?
each one of these refrigerators has a programing code. this code needs to be inputted into the board to run. thats just the way these are designed , when you order a new control this also has to be inputted into the new board.

TRIED THAT NOTHING STAYS BLANK NO P OR E

Okay, thats what I was afraid of. unfortunately it means the control has failed, this will need to be ordered and replaced. i have included a link below to the part. it comes with instructions. I wish and was hopping this was an easy fix, sorry. thanks and best wishes, Bryan
