    Thanks Applking, 
    I have tried power cycling it for 10mins and the problem is still there. Looks like I'll have to buy a new control panel, at first look they are £150 mite end up scrapping it at that price.
    Thanks again

Try unplugging it for 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again. If the control still will not respond it may have to be replaced.

Installed a new control board in a Whirlpool G15FSAXVY04, display reads PE0 000 flashing, what should I do next

You need to program the control board to match the refrigerator. Look for the serial plate and locate the number following "Code". That number is the program code and you will need that value.

1) press and hold Door Alarm keypad.
2) Press and hold the Freezer Temp Down keypad.
3) Release the Door Alarm keypad and wait 3 seconds. The refrigerator display should read PE - programming mode.
4) Press the Freezer Temp Down keypad to confirm that you are in the programming mode. Compare the Code number displayed to the one you recorded off the serial plate.
5) If they are the same, press and hold the Door Alarm keypad for 3 seconds to exit the programming mode.
6) Otherwise, press the Refrigerator Temp Up or Down keypads to change the first digit in the program code to get the correct value.
7) Press the Freezer Temp Up keypad to move to the next digit in the program code to adjust that. Use the Refrigerator Temp Up/Down buttons.
8) Repeat steps 6 and 7 until all of the digits match the Program Code from the serial plate of your appliance.
9) Press and hold the Freezer Temp Down button until the display begins to flash to save the code. If you hear a beep, the code is incorrect and was not saved.

If you heard a beep, return to steps 6 and 7 to correct the program code. Then go to step 9 again. If the code was saved, press any keypad to exit the programming mode.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool High Temperature Alarm Keeps Blinking

New Refrigerator / Freezer usually takes up to 12 hours to get the food down to temp and the inside air temps to stabilize...

Now, try explaining that to a BSN who is required to take hourly temp readings on a refrigerator and just loaded it half full of warm soft drinks and is opening and closing the door repeatedly retrieving supplies.

You lower the temp to "suit" (shut 'er up) and tomorrow they're calling you back because it's too cold...

Temperature display continuous flashing and continuous clicking noise

Aah, the favourite complaint. Basically, the display/ Main board will either need to be replaced or possibly reprogrammed. Fortunately i send my boards needing reprogramming to a friend to get done. Works extremly well after that. Careful not to let the clicking continue for long as the compressor will certainly malfunction.

No digital readout

Hello derek143

You Said,
I have a Whirlpool upright freezer AFG 371/H there is a digital display and lights and buttons, on/off temp alarm etc running across the top of the freezer. None of this works but the freezer is still freezing. i have no idea what the temp is.

I think you should try unplugging it for 5 minutes and then try restarting it and see if it reset.
