Expert:  Robert replied 5 years ago.

Hello.

 

Did you follow the instructions that came with the part?

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes, they mention to select the right model, but the LED wont display a thing...
Expert:  Robert replied 5 years ago.

How long did you wait before you turned the knob?

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
not long, just plugged in and tried it, i've even done a full power cycle and nothing
Expert:  Robert replied 5 years ago.

Ok. Make sure the door is closed. Unplug the unit for 5 minutes. Plug it back in again and don't touch anything. Wait for a few minutes for 2 dashes or T01 to appear on the screen. You should be able to turn the knob slowly to choose your model and then follow the other instructions. Let me know if that works. If not, you may have to send the board back for another claiming it as DOA(dead on arrival).

ok, i gues a DOA:(
Expert:  Robert replied 5 years ago.
I am sorry. Sometimes that happens on these units. Let me know if you need more help when the new board
comes in.
Expert:  Anon-aabbcc replied 5 years ago.
Hey just to chime in, make sure you dont have wires backwards on the board, sounds like it doesnt recognize the door being shut, usually it beeps twice for this, so either the door latch is not working or the wires are backwards, very unlikely to be DOA.
