|If your Refrigerator Control is not Responding Check the Following
First check your outlet by plugging something like a hair dryer set on high to make sure the outlet is not failing under load. Do not assume it is fine.
Some refrigerators will have a keypad. The keypad may be shorted or have a stuck key. To check this press each key one at a time, feel the key retract back. Any stuck keys you will need to replace the keypad.
Usually when the control does not respond or illuminate the control board will need to be replaced. Testing is possible but with the large variety of models this procedure will need to be found in the service manual of your specific model.
