MAYTAG REF DISPLAYS -14 FOR FZR & 8 FOR FRESH FOOD SEC.
« on: February 20, 2013, 08:32:36 PM »

Freezer was badly frosted up, fzr drawer was jammed open and cooling failing. Had customer unplug and defrost. Now the unit is cooling normally but the display shows -14 for the fzr and +8 for the ff section. These numbers are locked and the temperature setting cannot be changed.

Anybody seen this?

Thanks

Did you try unplugging for 5 minutes, & plugging back in?






Missing model number.

Sorry about not providing the m#: MFI2569YEM0

I also failed to mention that the -14 & +8 on the display was there before I instructed the customer to unplug and defrost as well as after plugging it back in.
