NO when ther is no power there is no sound when it is plugged bak in the beeping starts up and the compressor still does not come on.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
ok and where would you say the beeping is coming from ?
The rear the dispenser.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It seems to come from the rear of the refergerator?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
is the rear Condenser fan under the unit running/
and is the freezer evaporator fan running?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Nothing runs
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
ok so it is more then just the compressor!
Does the dispenser even have a display or lights on it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
All of the control display lights are on, but no input is accepted.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
ok let`s remove the rear inspection cover on the rear exterior of the unit and look at the control board to see if you see any burnt marks on the control boards.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I do not see any obivious burn marks.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
ok and you have unplugged the unit and plugged it back in correct?
and have you had any electrical storms in the area recently?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes plugged back in, no electrical storms or surges recently .
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
ok I have to suspect a issue with the main control board.
I know it is getting voltage or the display control would not be showing a display.
And if the dispenser is not responding there is no way to run the unit in the diagnostics.
