Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? And what exactly are you trying to reset?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im not at home to give model number but the panel is locked to give ice and water and the manual says to hind down the control lock button and its supposed to blink and turn off .... Not blinking or turning off
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK but the control lock light is definitely illuminated right now to show that it's locked?

OK so this is just a failed dispenser control board then. Try to unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes to see if it will reset. If that doesn't work, try to press and hold the control lock again. If it still won't reset, then you need to replace the dispenser control board because it has just failed.

Ok I will try that when I get home is that expensive to fix?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

I can be. The cost of the part depends on the model number but the part itself usually ranges from $80-400 so there is quite a range without an exact model number.

OK perfect, so below is a link to the control board you'd need to order and replace if it won't reset. It's just over $100.
