SOURCE: Kenmore 596 - temp control panel not responding

Hi,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Okay, hope this will help in solving problem

SOURCE: After a power outage, the control panel on front

The control board went into self diagnosis when the power was applied. It found an error in one or more of the systems. You will need a qualified technician to come out and see what the problems is. To bypass this problem for now, press the "Super Freeze" button and the "Super Cool" button together for 6 seconds simultaneously. This operation will put the refrigerator back to normal operation till the power is interrupted again. Good luck.

Our dryer does not function after a slight power outage due to an electrical storm. The number 88 blinks for a minute then goes to 18 . There is no response to the control panel , no buttons work!


brand and model numbers would be very helpful. without this info, I would try unplugging, wait about a minute, then plug back in. sometimes units can be reset by just cycling the power. Good luck.

Control panel is not responding


Most likely, if power *is getting to the unit*, (there are lights lit on the washer), then the culprit will be a shorted user interface board(control panel). This is a fairly common type of issue with dishwashers. The soft-touch buttons or the touch panel has a shorted button or area(depending on the type you have) and nothing else will function because the unit thinks you're still pressing a control button. Also, a VERY common cause of this issue, aside from moisture or bugs, is a power outage damaging the console when power is restored due to a surge. After an outage where damage occurs, the symptoms don't usually start for about 3-4 weeks after due to damaged chips on the board starting to fail.

After a power outage my Samsung SRS580DHLS is displaying and flashing SE? What does this code mean and how do I fix it? Rirht now the control panel only displays SE and does not respond to any presses


Your control board is reacting to a surge in power. Unplug the unit for 5 minutes then replug and follow normal starting procedures. If that does not work think about buying a new unit.

Hi. We had a power outage and now the control panel will not reset. Any tips?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

Press power cool and power freeze at the same time for 8 seconds.. The control panel should reset. If pressing pwr cool and pwr freeze shuts off the compressor it can be 10 mins of more before it restarts. If it does not reset... respond here and I will dig through the service manual and get back to you.

We had a power outage and the display is blinking and there is no response to pressing any button


First, try unplugging the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes and then plugging it back in. Sometimes, a very brief power outage will be sensed by the control as an internal error and the control will lock itself out.

If it continues to blink and does not respond to key presses after this "hard reset", it is likely a portion of the control board could have been damaged from the power outage.

FYI ... the touch panel for this model is no longer available. I mention that because no response from any key press can also denote a shorted key pad.

Hi,

Before doing anything else, turn off the power at the circuit breaker and leave it off for a few minutes... then turn the power back on and it should start up again and be okay...

If this does not fix it then the control board is fried...from the power surge when the power went out...

Green light on front rapidly blinks after power outage. No picture, or can't turn on


This unit, when first plugged in or after power interuption takes 70 to 90 seconds for the digital module to boot up. During the time the LED blinks green and the set will not respond to anything. After the appropriate amount of time the blinking should stop and the set should operate normally. If the blinking never stops then you have to have the Digital Module repaired.
