Try doing this and tell me what happens

There is no Lighting button on the inside buttons - I don’t have the outside wAter dispenser that apparently has that option. My choices are ice off, power freeze, freezer, fridge, power cool and e saver.

I’d rather email

what is the model number?

I will have to opt out of this question. I do not have to needed info for you in my database.

Some one will pick up your question and hopefully get you the info to get it reset.

I 1E code means the power has failed and should be just a matter of finding out the correct pads to press on your control.

I will continue to look and come back if no one has helped you out.

please - I need to know the 2 buttons to press to stop the flashing after a power outage

what are the two top buttons on your unit? The one on the left and one on the right? I believe it should be power freeze and e saver try holding those two for 5 seconds.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Nope - didn’t work. The buttons left to right are ice off, power freeze, freezer, fridge, power cool, and e saver

ok press the two top buttons what ever button is top left and button top right at the same time for 5 seconds please.
