My function panel is locked, can't change temp or from ice

Customer Question

My function panel is locked, can't change temp or from ice to water, etc. Replaced the hv board before when this happened and all was well for another 5 years. Same thing is happening now so I bought another board, but the "new" board will not go into program mode and locks functions as well, but now it is stuck on water. Put old board back and all is locked, but now back to ice.

Hello, this is Dave. Is the green light on at the lock/unlock button? If you hold the button for 3 seconds does the light go out?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, it is not on. Pressing and holding doesn't help either.
