Customer Question

I have a Whirlpool 20R1 D3SF Fridge/Freezer. A while ago an inquisitive granddaughter did something with the control panel, which left us with a blank screen. If you turn off the power, then after 10-15 seconds turn it back on again, the screen returns to normal. But after a short time the screen goes blank again. The unit is working normally so I haven't been bothered too much by it. Today I tried again by turning off and on the power. Now the screen display returns, but then goes off, but it now shows a blue bar in each of the temperature displays. Regards

Turning the appliance off and then on again has reset the appliance and this causes the appliance to do a defrost. The appliance will return to normal after a short period of between 5 - 20 mins depending on its settings
