The customer said the display came back in stages,the fridge is working good now.My next job is to find out which control board to replace.This is the second time it happened.no part was ever replaced.Did you guys hear the same story before?

The parts people said the board behind the display which is above the ice dispenser is NLA.So I only have one main control to choose from.It may not solve the problem.
