Ice/Water Dispensing System won't unlock? I think.
« on: January 04, 2009, 10:58:14 PM »

Hi,

I think my dispensing system is either locked up or it no longer is functioning.  The "lockout" button is showing red and I have already tried to push it and nothing has happened.  Any help would greatly be appreciated. :)

BTW, I have mulitple problems with this unit but I will start a new topic later.

Model Number: GS5SHAXNB01 icon

press and hold the LOCKOUT button
After leaving this Earth, "Do you want the smoking or non-smoking section?"

The problem is the dispenser control built into the unit. In stock at RepairClinic
