My iPhone will not let me post it at the moment but I will tomorrow..... My display has 3 buttons on the left: door alarm,temp alarm,reset filter. The three on the right are max cool, humidity control,light. It has the digital temp in the center of display, on/ off button for the cooling system, and water and cube at the bottom... Thanks

Doing further research I have found 4 aes models.
Some with,some without the lock button.
What number designation is on your machine after the "aes"?

Well Boomer.........I have read and re-read all available material on this unit.
What specific keypads are locked?
Do any work?
Which ones work?
Is the refrigerator running and cooling?

It will let me turn the cooling system off and on from the keypad.... But that's it. All the others just beep at me.. Even the cube and water dispenser. The ice maker is making ice just fine and it is cooling and freezing fine as well...

In the test mode if the control board is doing all the functions,my deduction is the dispenser facade(touchpad) is defective.
The part is about $40.
There are 3 to choose from based upon color.
Part #:
67006288
67006289
67006290

Order through the link on the left and send the part back if I am wrong.

I fixed it! It was none of the above solutions..... But thank everybody for their help and time. When I was in programming mode I entered code 0000 and saved it. The unit will not run with this code as stated in service manual.... After this code is saved go back into program mode and enter the code that is on the inside of the frig....and save. This will reset everything back to factory settings thus unlocking your keypad. Thanks

I started to ask if you entered a wrong,but you had me convinced you had done nothing wrong.
You said the unit failed after filling a water jug,not after entering codes.

No no I did nothing wrong..... That is how you fix it.  If you run the water over a set period of time it will lock it up.  Supposedly it is a safety design so it will not flood your home if it goes bad. You have to enter 0000 and save it and then enter the code assigned to your unit. That resets the keypad.... You cannot enter another code other than the one assigned or the 0000 it will not accecpt it or save it... So there is no way to save the wrong code as stated in the service manual

You are correct about the unit not running with a 0000 code.
You confused us all when you previously said the unit was running.
