Kenmore Fridge- all lights blinking

I have a 2 yr old Kenmore french door fridge with bottom freezer 596.77532600. All lights on the display are blinking, the temperature for both the freezer and fridge are going up. No inputs on the control board work and I can not enter the programming or diagnostics mode on the control board. I replaced the display control circuit board but the same problem still exists.

    Many thanks for the tip. There seems to be a variety of control boards, which board are you referring to? I replaced the dispenser control circuit board (the one in the door) and ended up with the exact same issue. The lights stop blinking when I unhook the cavity/mullion heater harness, but the fridge also stops working....... You help would be most appreciated since we can't get a service tech in for two weeks.

    I have the exact same problem. Same refrigerator. model
    596-77532600. French doors, Freezer on the bottom. The lights on the
    front control panel flash/blink when the compressor is running and the
    ice door keeps opening and closing. I disconnected the ice door
    connection from the front panel board so that the door motor would not
    wear out. The refrigerator is still cooling/freezing which is good.
    Based on the solution described on this web site, I ordered a
    replacement main board (located on the back of the refrigerator. Part
    number "46 596 12920710". ($180.00 CDN) I noticed the sticker on the
    existing main board says "Maytag". Maytag ICE2O refrigerators have the
    exact same problem.

    I bought the borad to $180 cdn. But when I looked at the manula I see that the code has to be programmed in first. before i put in the board tonite i will just try re-programming it...I am in the technology business and i see more software fail than hardware...I am hoping Sears it taking advantage of that...and althoguh i paid...you won't have to when i post a programming solution.

Hi,
With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator


This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.
