For some reason the refrigerator cooling has been turned off like you want it in demo mode. To turn cooling back on, press and hold the LOCK and MEASURED FILL buttons at the same time for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes and try again. If it still doesn't work, your display board has failed and would need to be replaced. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
