I don't hear anything. I thought it might start up once something was programmed on the front control panel.

Is there not just a simple start up procedure when installing a new frig? If I need to get to the computer board, tell me what I need to do
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
when new all you have to do it set the temp controls normally it has a on and off plug ounds like the compressor is not running which means if its new it should have warranty
