This error means that the display board isn't communicating with the main control board properly. You can't really test for the error code, but it means that either one of your 2 boards is faulty (it would be a guess as to which one), or you have a bad connection going through the door hinge on the freezer door. Remove the cover on your door hinge and disconnect the wire connection. Unplug the refrigerator and try to clean out the pins in the connection with a toothbrush and if you still have problems, I'd replace the display board first. We are on the honor system here.
