Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

If the freezer display is not turning to a setting (showing dashes only), the main electronic control is likely faulty. I would call for warranty service. If you would like to proceed on your own, please post the model number.
