What do I do when the temperature controls both read 000 and are locked?
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! How long was it unplugged for? Is anything at all running, any fans or anything?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

15 to 20 minutes. Nothing is running. Lights turn on when doors are opened.

Okay, and no response from any buttons when pushed?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

None. When I push & hold the control button I hear a beep. When I try to change the temperature I hear a beep.

If you press and hold the colder and warmer buttons for both compartments all together for about 5 seconds, do they flash or change behavior at all?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

They flash the whole time I am pressing the buttons. Three beeps. I did manage to unlock the control button.

Great! Will it allow you to now set the temperatures?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No. Any change in the temperature buttons remains in 3 digits. I have not been able to set the temperature. I just tried again and I think I heard something kick on for a few seconds when the controls read 555.

Thank you. I believe the main control board on the back of the refrigerator will need to be replaced. It is pictured and available below and comes with installation instructions.

Thank you. I will contact a local company for the part replacement you suggest. Am I correct that the refrigerator will not maintain temperature if this part is not replaced?

That is correct because nothing is running.
