Kenmore bottom freezer fridge:596.79543016
« on: September 28, 2020, 05:04:10 AM »

This bottom freezer fridge, only the lites are on,nothing else is working. When you press any button, all the dispenser lites come on, but all disappeared after I released the button [size=78%]Because the display is not on, so nothing is working. No fan, no compressor, nothing is running. How can I get the display to come on and stay on? [/size]

Sounds like either the WPW10312695 electronic control board or the W10162500 user interface board is bad.  Attached is the tech sheet for your refrig that might help your identify which board is bad.

Thank you Very much, Dash. I will go back to see the customer now. Try to find out which board to replace.

I went back to replace the main control board at the back of the fridge,it works well now.It's nice to be so simple.
