its flashing E0 but the only way I can get it to work I have to leave the door open if I close the door I get nothing with the control panel
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 8 months ago.

ok unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes and plug it back in and see if you still get the E0 showing in display, if so unplug the unit again and check the wall plug and make sure its getting the proper voltage, 110/115 volts, if so the main power board on the unit will need to be replaced.
